We were in Hengchun for two nights during the Chinese Latern festival. The hostel is ideally situated inside the old (formerly walled) town. Everything was perfect, hot showers, a neat room, and lots of space. And when we had questions, Harry (the manager) was always eager to help.
The hostel owner is young and very helpful! He helped us (actually he did most of the work) BBQ our first night there. We had a large group of 7 and we split into men and women rooms quite comfortably. Although I shared a room with many other travelers on a busy weekend, the complimentary lockers made me feel safe and secure. Also, the women's room is quite nice - women traveling in packs would have a great stay!
