Taroko Gorge is a stunning place to spend a few days, but staying overnight in the gorge can be a bit inconvenient. There are limited food options and convenience stores close early. Another option is to stay just outside of the park at the Taroko Hostel.
The hostel has one dorm room with beds going for $650 a night, or doubles for as little as $1800. Meals are also served at the hostel, and there is a 7-11 and a few other restaurants further down the road. Tours and transport to the gorge can also be arranged from here.
