Me and a friend stayed here for 3 nights. The hostel is clean and open with a communal kitchen and living area. Each bed has its own light and plug and privacy curtain. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Close walk to the train station and night markets

I stayed for two nights in a private room at the Sleeping Boot Hostel in Hualien Taiwan. My son and I wanted to see Taroko Gorge and Chihsingtan Beach.

One of the best hostel experiences i've ever had. 10/10. The living arrangements were excellent and the people working there were more than helpful. Would stay there again in an instant. Also, Taroko gorge and the beach are breathtaking.

房間/浴室都很乾淨,床雖然是上下鋪但睡起來很舒適,每個床位都有充足插座及閱讀燈。 附有洗衣機可洗衣服,衣服曬一晚就乾了~ 管家跟小幫手人都超好,一不小心就在大廳跟大家聊天聊到半夜XD 下次去花蓮我一定會再住sleeping boot的! Bedroom and bathroom are clean, and beds are cozy. The manager and helpers are very nice and friendly. I will visit sleeping boot again!

After staying at the Sleeping Boot for several times over the years, I can say that it always looks like new. This very nice place is simply very well kept. It's located between the train and bus station and the downtown area, placing both locations in walking distance.
