Very friendly staff and nice location just by the beach. Really recommend this place!
This hostel is not good at all! We ended up booking our trip to Kending at the last minute and it was between this hostel and another. We chose this one because it was close to the beach, which it was. That part was awesome! Our room was not! It was like sleeping in a cave. Also, instead of having separate beds there are two giant bunks in a room. Each one sleeping 3 people. You basically slept on plywood with a yoga mat next to two strangers. This is by far the worst hostel I have been to.
I enjoyed my stay here very much. The location is between Hengchun and Kenting, but easily accesible to both, at the same times as being less crowded and sitting right on the beach! The dorm room itself is on the small side, but in a place like Kenting, only a fool would spend too long in the room! The bar area outside (with a really nice boss and other staff who work there) is a nice place to relax in the evening, the sea is beautiful from morning till sunset, and other activities are nearby.
The place is too wet including the air and bed even floor, cannot sleep for one night, unless u wanna surf dont go there.
Location: the beach in front of the hostel is crowded. Jet-Skis & other water vehicles everywhere. After swimming you'll be covered all over by green waterplants. Hostel: NOT clean. Bathroom covered with mould. No lockers. You sleep basically with 2 other strangers in the same bed if you choose the 8-room-bedroom Personnel: incompetent but friendly
The only good thing about this hostel is its 5 min walk from the beach at Nanwan. People there were nice too. BUT it is quite dirty though. The rooms are really old, there wasn't any window in mine and it was REALLY smelly from the shared bathroom which was a lot of mold.. I just stayed there for a night and was quite happy to move to a cleaner place.
It was awful. There were plenty of ants under the bed I had chosen. I had to insist that the staff cleaned immediately. Otherwise they would have waited!! The toilet smells bad. You have to buy the water.The owner only cares about money. Since they hardly speak english, it was difficult to communicate. The breakfast was ok, but nothing exceptionnal : omelett !! It'sdefinitely not a place to go, even if you're looking for a cheap place. Do really go somewhere else
Mix dorm is small with smelly toilet . A big insect (not knowing its name) was found in the night i stayed. Nice breakfast.
The location is right beside the beach but far away from the Kenting Street and food. Breakfast is the only wonderful thing in my stay. The hygiene of mixed dorm totally sucks. Many ants are right beside me. However, the poor hygiene of the dorm made us stay away from the room and made friends with other guests. It is a very nice experience.
They don't have a locker and the dorm is smelly. But the location is wonderful coz a nice beach is just on the other side of the road, inside a resort.
