Price was a bit high per night. Thought breakfast should have been included.

Put AC in the common dorm


Old medical clinic in downtown Hengchun, Very nicely redone. Spacious and clean. Friendly staff, good facilities. There is risk of mosquitoes however. The place is also "always open" for guests to come in and out without visible security (I assumed Hengchun is pretty safe). Use provided lockers (and keys) just to be sure.


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.
