If you want to stay away from the busy kenting "This is the right place" staff is so nice giving you lot of information of where to go and whats the best choice to reach sightseeings, you can rent motorbykes to go all over the places, so Its is definitely the best choice to stay close to kenting park, you wont regret, staff is super nice and breakfast too, beds make some noises when you move, but not a big deal :)


My only problem with this hostel was the bathroom. Even tho we got a ensuite bathroom, the shower was terrible, there was no hot water and it would spill water all over the toilet, making a huge mess. It was also not as clean as I wish. Besides that, the beds were ok, the breakfast was simple but fine, and it was near a bus stop, which was very convenient!


Had a really nice stay at Blue Hi hostel for the weekend!

already fixed the problem and ask staff to clean it more~~


Nice hostel which is well situated if you want to have a round in Kenting National Park. The biggest problem was the level of English of the staff which was very poor and even if they organize many activities from the hostel it is not that to book. They were really nice anyway so it was okay. It was still a really nice stay as we didn't expect much more for the price. It is quite close to everything so I recommend this hostel anyway :)


The staff was amazing. They were so helpful, kind, and nice. I had the best time!

We overslept one night at this place but wish we could stay there more time.Very nice room,polite and kind staff and in the morning well prepared breakfast!


The hostel rooms and reception look like a hostel. The hostel is not a building of its own rather a part of an apartment building that is extremely run down. There was construction material in the lobby which is not very inviting. The room looked quite nice but the pictures were very misleading because the elevator and hallway to get to the room are not shown in the hostel photos and this is reasonably important because both of those things look like they are out of a horror movie. We left.


Breakfast was very good!


hostel was nice and clean excluding the bathroom which could have been a tad cleaner. It would be nice if there would have been hand soap and hand towels in the bathrooms


We have stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and this has to be one of the most bizarre. When the staff were present, they were very friendly and did their best to help. The free breakfast was fantastic - cooked eggs, rice, pasta, salad, thick toast, tea and coffee, and Taylor Swift. They rent bicycles for a reasonable price and offer affordable double, single, and dorm rooms. They really need to get some decent signage outside the building in English!! Too hard to find the building!!!!!


Very friendly staff, place was clean. The mixed dorm room is packed with beds, a little hard to find space to put your bags. The bathroom is across the lobby of the building, shared with other businesses, and down a flight of stairs, which provides an interesting return from the shower. Also any key will open all the lockers.


There was cockroaches in the bathroom. You had to walk throw a public area to get to the bathroom/shower. The bathroom floor was often flooded. The room didn't look like in the pictures, it the girls dorm was a bunch of beds crammed into a room with bunk beds side by side with a curtain dividing them. The breakfast was good, toast, coffee, orange juice black tea and green tea, meat, eggs, past and salad. Also there wasn't much to do by the hostel, a few shops and a pool hall. 10min bus to beach.

This hostel is cheap and you get a good breakfast but it's basic. It's an odd layout and there are too many beds in the dorm so not enough space for bags. There's no buses in the evening to Kenting night market so you'll have to get a taxi or hitch hike. The hostel is not as high standard as other hostels in Taiwan but it's cheap so you can't complain. I met some cool people so ok for socialising. The staff gave me the wrong info for buses so go to the info centre in town, much better advice.


Cheap place and good breakfast. Still it was very dirty, filled with cockroaches and noisy beds. The location is a bit far from the beach, and you rely on a scooter to get around. It's hard to get around by bus.


My only complaint is the wifi. I don't mind if the internet is slow, that doesn't bother me, but the wifi had the tendency to cut in and out at random. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. Beyond this, the building itself has definitely seen its better days, however the part of the building where BlueHi is looked well maintained. Their beds were especially comfortable, the staff were great, and it was a very good deal for the cost. Would consider staying here again if back in Hengchun.


Useless wifi, old and noisy beds.
