    Sleeping Boot was clean and centrally located. We walked to the train station to catch the bus to Taroko and we also walked around to the night market and a bunch of different delicious restaurants. The hosts had maps in Chinese and English for my friend and I and pointed out recommendations for local food. Showers were hot and clean!

    Sleeping Boot is the first review I am leaving because Nick is the man and he made my stay awesome. He was super kind and even gave me a ride to the train station to ensure I secured my onward journey ticket. I will be back! Thanks Sleeping Boot and Nick!

    Very Good

    Lots of potential - maybe it's just me, but I didn't really get what all the fuss was about. There were a lot of long term "residents" when I was there so not much in the way of atmosphere. Beds were very soft - not ideal for me - and there was lots of natural light in the room which made sleeping difficult even with the curtains. There's no alcohol allowed in the building - which isn't mentioned on the advanced info they send you. Taroko Gorge is amazing and the city is great.
