We stayed only 2 nights in Sleeping boots. I like the environment very much, clean and bright, you can find everything u need there. Staff are also very friendly, they gave us very warm greetings and all useful tips! 15mins walk from the train station is okay. Highly recommended to everyone!

Super friendly staff, great atmosphere. The hostel really feels like home, it's new, very nicely decorated, really cute and always clean. We stayed there for 3 nights when we were traveling around Taroko. The mixed dorms were really comfortable and quiet, the perfect place to rest after a day of trekking!
