    Honestly such a fantastic stay! Such a chill and wholesome vibe. We were only supposed to stay three nights but stayed four because we loved the staff and visitors so much. Everything was extremely clean and they had decently sized lockers for your things. Such a lovely hostel, looking forward to going back!

    Great hostel! Good quality tea + coffee provided, common space is nice atmosphere to do admin tasks/meet people, everywhere is really clean and the hosts are always ready to help & super friendly. Very close to Hualien station, making it a great choice to visit Taroko and other places around Hualien :)

    One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in in Asia, super cute design and nice touches that give it a homey vibe, perfect for Hualien. Good location about halfway between the train station and centre of town, female only dorm was very spacious with floor length windows and access to a little balcony, bathrooms clean and organised, common area downstairs a nice area with separate kitchen and free tea and coffee. The owner is also very kind and helpful. Highly recommend this little gem.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Sleeping Boot. The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The vibe is very nice to get to know fellow travelers, but the setup also lets you have some alone time, even in the shared dorms (each bed has a curtain that can be closed. I love that!). They upgraded us to a double room for two nights of our stay, which is great too (thanks!). The common space was nice, there is a kitchen, washing machine and computer.

    Everyone was so friendly and helpful! Very relaxing common area and good amenities. I personally found the beds to be very uncomfortable, but I was so tired from exploring the city and surrounding area that it didn’t matter too much. Overall, a good hostel in a pretty central location to make your home base during your trip.

    Overall, not a bad hostel. It's clean, cheap and the staff are nice. Like many Taiwanese hostels, the vibe is lacking a little, so you need to do put in a little effort yourself. My suggestion would be to use the small common area downstairs to try and spark conversations with other travellers.

    Nice enough hostel. Clean with friendly staff. Short walk to the railway station and local amenities. Beds are comfy but like most hostels in Taiwan there's no atmosphere whatsoever. The entrance to the hostel isn't the door that says 'Sleeping Boot' on it. It's actually what looks like the shop next door.
