muskia My wife and myself stayed at this great place for 2 nights, a week ago. Even though the location of the minsu was rather far from the train station (not walking distance), the owner was very kind to arrange for transport to pick both of us lost souls up after we arrived at Hua Lien Train station, even though it was rather late on a Sunday evening about 2030/2100H by then. (Thanks Rachel and Pao!) Despite the late hour, we were greeted with smiles and promptly brought up to our room. The room was relatively spacious, with a nice, cozy decor, giving a very homely feeling. Basic necessities such as shampoo, body foam and towels were also provided, and replenished/changed as required daily. We had a much needed rest on the first night, and went on a one day tour of Taroko Gorge the next day, arranged by the minsu owner. The tour was flexible, and the guide (Pao Chen) was very understanding and experienced. We did not feel very rushed unlike most one day tours, and we had our choice of venues (all beautiful one way or another) to choose from. He was also kind enough to send us to and fro from the train station just to sort out some ticket matters for the rest of our trip in Taiwan. He also made good recommendations on certain food items we could purchase for friends back home, and also helped to get the shop to arrange for the bulky items we purchased to be sent to another hotel in Taiwan for a latter part of our trip, so that we did not have the hassle of lugging them all along when we left Hua Lien. Overall, we were quite sorry that we had to leave the minsu after just two nights, as the friendly and sincere service from Rachel and Pao, as well as the nice, clean and cozy room really made us feel at home in Hua Lien.
Steffing Sleeping Boot is great! As a hostel, it's very clean and comfortable. Amenities and furnishings were suitably provided. However, the best part of Sleeping boot is its owner. Fong is a wonderful host and great travel adviser. Thanks to his suggestion, our trip to Taroko was memorable and great fun! Just 3 nights at Sleeping Boot and it felt like home. Its location required some navigation, but the directions provided in the email (in english) is clear and concise. It's 15min walk from the railway station and bicycle rental shop which made it easy to get in and out of Hualien.

haworth.jo A great place, Location close to the township and night life, very easy to get around. Friendly and easy going managers, a relaxed comfortable atmosphere. Clean and tidy rooms and facilities. I fully recommend the Bali hostel and Munkey surf.
