I stayed at the hostel for a week, mainly so that I could go surfing around the area. Everything in the place was really nice a chilled out. The staff were excellent and helped me out in any way they could to make my stay great. This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Well done to everyone that works here for making my holiday wonderful :)

In a very convenient location! Near random shops, small businesses, 7-11 and bus station. Staff was very friendly and willing to help with advice and directions!

Great vibe here, and the staff go with the vibe so you're not an easy going kind of person then this might not be your jam. Don't expect a lot of specifics from them, but Kenting is an easy going, exploring kind of place any way. If you want to go scooba diving or sight-seeing, look into locations yourself. The breakfast wasn't big, but the perfect size, and interesting every day. Our room was great, clean, had everything we needed. No laundry machine, but there's a big bucket and soap.

Conveniently located next to the Hengchun bus station. Nice decoration with good facilities. The bunk beds are comfortable. Very helpful and friendly staff. Delicious breakfast prepared by the staff. Would certainly choose this hostel again if I visit Hengchun in the future!

We really liked the location in the city, easy access to many different things. Staff gave great recommendations on places to rent motor bikes, live music to see and a great night market on Sundays.

The staff are nice and friendly. The only bad part is the location, as it is quite a distance from kenting street. However, if you rent a scooter, then this would not be a problem. The bed is great and the curtains gave me more privacy.

The place is amazing and really comfortable to sleep in. With that said, it is a bit pricier than other places you can find. What I hated was the staff. The boss was really nice, chatting with all customer, but there are two other staff members whom I didn't like. A lot of other reviewers on here seem to think they're great people, and they probably are, but only to foreigners. They ignored us Chinese folks (discussed with room mates) and were on laptops all day. I was disappointed.

This place is recently renovated from March 2014, with a lot of character and decoration from the Himalayas. The layout is spacious with each bunk with private outlet and curtains. Moreover, there is a wonderful cafe space downstairs where the lovely owner, Ur Ur, serves lovely homemade breakfast. Another owner is an expert surfer and super teacher. Great place with awesome people.

Rainbow Wave is located in Hengchung, about 5 minutes from Kenting by buss and roughly 30 minutes from Jialeshuei. Hostel was clean, staff really helpful in explaining the surroundings and what activities are around. Be minded though, the hostel is not at the beach, its in the city, so dont stay here if u are looking for a beach stay. However, if you dont mind traveling 5-10 minutes to the beach then this is the place for u!
