Decent place to stay. Good location, right across the street from the beach. There is very limited bathroom space, so you might have to wait awhile (or else get there early).

This place is exactly as it sounds. A kick back, chilled out, surfer vibe style hostel that offers an incredibly nice staff located in an area close to the action. The one bathroom is fine as long as you have a bit of patience. Afei (the owner) is super cool. He went out of his way to open his closed t-shirt shop for us so we could grab some tanks before we had to leave. I recommend giving this place a try if you are going for a beach vibe kind of experience.

The staff was super friendly & helpful. The facilities were nice & clean. Breakfast was scant, but it was something. The location is directly across from Nanwan beach, which is the most crowded beach in Kenting. When I arrived, there were speakers blaring EDM music on the beach, so it was less relaxing than I had imagined. There are few restaurants nearby, so you really need to rent a scooter.

If you want to learn to surf w/a great teacher at a nice beach, this is the place. If you want creature comforts, space to lounge, and peace & quiet away from tourist crowds, Nanwan is not the place, try Jialeshui. Afei is a great surf teacher & the waves at Nanwan beach @end of summer were spot on for a beginner. The hostel is a bit cramped and right on a loud, busy road, many tourists, the left side of the beach is loud (if you don't look left, you could pretend the right side is remote).

I stayed one night in Afei and one night in Awu, the hostel next door. The dorm in Afei is very small compared to Awu but well dispatched. There is only one bathroom so it can get a bit crowded as mentionned in the comments, but it's always clean. The staff makes a whole of a difference, everyone is very nice and helpful and it's always busy so book early. This hostel is great for backpackers as it has some of south east Asia vibe, and it's easy to meet other travelers.
