Together with 5 friends I stayed in the bayhouse for 3 nights. It was wonderful. The place is quite new, very clean, there are good showers and the beds are great (which is not very common for a hostel). Frank, the owner, is very helpful. As other reviewers mentioned the "big" city is indeed a little far, around 8km. However,... More

Very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff, always ready to help. The hostel is near the beautiful Shanshui beach, but a bit far from Magong and other attractions. However, there is a bus stop five minutes away (by walking) from the hostel. The staff can also help you call a taxi. Besides, there is a shuttle that could either pick up... More

During my stay at Penghu Hostel i had a great time! First of all, free airport pick up !!! The Hostel has a very personal atmosphere, the house is painted colourful and every room has its own topic like "surfing" or "diving". Moreover this hostel is only 2 minutes away from the beach! During my stay there i had a... More

The staff is very nice and helpful! The hostel is clean and everything is pretty new. Also, it is situated a few minutes walk from the beach :) They can book boat rides to the surrounding islands or water sports activities for you. They can also help you to rent ebikes/motorbikes. I booked a package including boat ride to Jibei/ebike... More

Beds and living area are well organized. Their staff members are wiiling to help you. You can meet young Taiwanese travellers in this hostel. It's fun bcoz usually we meet international travllers except local travellers in hostels. I could enjoy the Penghu island FULLY with staying here. But if you don't take a motorcycle, you couldn't go around the island.But... More

What a pleasure it was to stay at this place! My experience with Bayhouse and its owner, Frank, was positive from the very beginning. I was worried about not being able make a deposit to confirm a reservation online via HostelWorld.com or the Bayhouse website, but Frank graciously told me I could pay upon arrival. Next, Frank met me at... More

For me Bayhouse Hostel is definietely the best place to stay on Penghu: it's nice and clean, the staff is amazing, the location fantastic and it's cheap. I stayed in the female dorm room, which has comfortable bunk beds with clean linen (don't forget to bring your own towel!) and an extra en-suite bathroom. The whole hostel was very clean,... More
