Very friendly staff! Delicious free hot breakfast. Great location, just steps from the beach!!


Host was awesome! She was one of the nicest people I've met in Taiwan, hands down. Would love to go back to Awu when I goto Kenting next time. Great location next to the beach as well, we were only a five minute walk away.

Leaky bathroom drain sink . Beach semi trashy. Nearby food not convenient and over-priced. Help, less than.


It was almost impossible to find the location of this hostel. There were no clear directions on the booking confirmation and taxi drivers were all confused at what was written on there in Chinese. The Google Maps location is also wrong. Eventually someone from the hostel had to come and meet me and walk me there. Not impressed. 6 bed dorm: No lockers. The en-suite bathroom smelled - and my bed was opposite the bathroom door. However, the bed was comfortable and the free breakfast was good.


very nice!


its not nearly as bad as some as the reviews state.it was very clean when i was there,staff are friendly,right across from the beach, no directions though.so if you catch the kenting express bus get off at the Nanwan(beach) stop.get of the bus,cross the road and walk back up the way the bus came,after about 5 mins you will come across AWU,there is not too much visible signage ,but ull find it.google maps is wrong so dont bother. Kenting is pretty average
