The staff was very welcoming and helpful. They helped us finding the best typical restaurants in Hengchun, and also helped us organising our sightseeing in Kenting. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at Rainbow Wave Surfing.

I really loved the time at Rainbow Wave Surfing Hostel! Thank you for very relaxing days. If I ever come back to the South of Taiwan I will definitely stay one more time at this hostel :-) PS: There was just one little "problem": I am very allergic against cats and at the hostel live a few house cats. But luckily they are not allowed to go upstairs to the bedrooms, so it was okay.

“Rainbow Wave Surfing Hostel is situated in Kenting.” Kenting National Park, yes, but NOT Kenting City! Please make that clear! The building has a nice vibe and great laundry facilities on the roof, but I didn’t like that there is only one main bathroom with sinks, toilets, and showers for both men and women together. If the women must share a bathroom with the men, please at least put mirror in the women’s dorm. Vents in the wall let you hear everything from neighboring rooms, incl. bathroom!

Service was not exemplary when I went. Staff were curt and unhelpful, more interested in their computers and facebook than answering my questions. Also sound from the common area transmits directly into the big room I was sleeping in. Otherwise, beds were clean and comfortable, showers were nice.

As others have mentioned your actually a bit away from Kenting or even the coast, about 5 min to the later and 20 to the former, the plus side of all this is you have way more busses and taking bike round the whole south coast is quite a bit easier. Limited showers which could be an issue in high season but there big and airy so no biggie. If you after the Asian hippy vibe then this place has you sorted, if your not its fine.

氣氛跟佈置都很有味道!彩色的大廳跟木製床都讓人感覺很舒服很配合恆春墾丁的陽光海灘。長髮老闆人看起來酷酷的但其實很nice!老闆娘(應該是?)也很nice!也謝謝老闆的香港加油!是我環島住得最開心的hostel,期待夏天再回來! A hostel with pleasant interior design, both common area and bed are great! Nice host and hostess, the best hostel I've ever been in Taiwan! Hope to visit again!

Very good hostel with great staff and atmosphere. Beware though, that this hostel is NOT in the town of Kenting. It is in Hengchun which is about 20 minutes north by bus, Make sure you get off at the right stop.

Extremely nice hostel! Good price, close to scooter rentals and restaurants, and a cool bar. The staff cook dinner that you can join for ~3eur at night.

Less than 5 mins walking distance from everything you need: bus transfer station, convention stores, main ancient street, southern gate etc. Devoid of the crowd from Kenting, you will get a very distinctively designed hostel with a mixture of reggae, Tibetan and surfer. The staffs are kind and helpful who took note of my stomach discomfort and prepared a great delicious local dinner which improved my appetite. Surely looking forward to return with a longer stay.

Very nice and helpful staff! Scooter rektal and Bus Station (Kenting Shuttle and Kaohsiung Shuttle) right around the corner- so you can quickly go to all scenic spots you want. Shops and restaurants also close by. And the atmosphere in the Hostel very nice including bar and roof terrace!

sound staff. I was there in low season so there wasn't much atmosphere but I can see it would be nice in peak season.

Naticia and all of the other staff were very helpful and welcoming, she even let me use her bike to cycle to the nearby bar. Hostel has a nice bar to relax in. Would definitely come back here if i'm visiting kenting again. Also second night is cheaper than first by 200TD, which hostelworld doesnt say.
