    Jerry and Cape 42 make your Hengchun stay a very relaxed. Rent a bike and explore the area of Kenting...but never ever consider of staying in Kenting. It is Hengchun and Cape 42!

    I had a great time at Cape 42. My friends and I arrived quite late but the hostel staff waited patiently and recommended ud a great bar as well. We ended up getting an upgrade for a condo-like room, with our own bathroom and had the space for us. There were a few insects in the room but that's normal for Taiwan- the overall cleanliness was great though!

    A fine place to stay at for a reasonable price. Has all the basic amenities that you will need provided for. My only concern was that the cubicles that I slept in were a tad uncomfortable as it could get stuffy, since the only ventilation is the hole where you enter/exit.

    Amazing location and cosy vibe. It’s a small hostel so a good opportunity to meet others if you’re travelling solo. Only downside is no lockers or kitchen amenities. Jerry the host was great with check in and answering questions. There’s also a cute cat who lives outside!

    I went to the address advertised through hostel world website and the hostel doesn’t exist. I called the hostel and they offered to pick me up on a motorbike and take me to the address. I think this is really strange and hostel world need to take more responsibility in checking the hostels they advertise use the correct address.
