I must say that the urinals in the male washroom are super smelly. Its not pleasant to use the washroom. Plus u can turn on the air con from 0900 to 1700. If u wanna wake up lately, u must suffer the hotness in the room. The staff are nice but not super friendly. The TV in the common room...

Room and bed are cozy. Huge windows with the view of the main street which become night market at night. Very enjoyable just to sit and watch people passing through the night market. Close to the beach. Atmosphere in the lobby was super welcoming.

A fantastic location, looking over a night market, and with view of Kenting National Park. During the day the hostel is unbearable as they do not allow the air conditioning on between 9am to 5pm, even if customers are there and visibly uncomfortable due to the heat. So it is hot & humid both outside and inside the hostel during...

The hostel is not far from the ocean and the beach, where you can swim, that's good. Also you can take 101 bus, it stops near the hostel, and visit some nice places. Near the hostel is a night market, 7/12, a lot of restaurants, shops, so infrastructure is pretty good. Also the view from the hall window is very...

Very central convenient location on Kenting Strip, approx. 5 minutes away from the Kenting Express bus stop, the beach (which can be closed down in typhoon season, though), a convenience store, a breakfast place, moped rental and the night food stalls. Dorm rooms rather small, but sufficient unless everyone comes with big luggage. Equipped with lockers. No windows in rooms,...

Nice and friendly staff, clean room and shower, socket and reading light beside each bed! All you need is there for a hostel with very cheap price! Not to mention the great location: easy access to the beach within 5 minutes and the night market street is right downstairs! I will definitely stay here again next time when I visit...

If you heading south to Kenting, this backpackers hostel is a good choice if you enjoy interacting with backpackers from all over the world. This is the only hostel in Kenting unless you prefer to stay in specialty resorts (minsus as what its known in Taiwan). The backpackers hostel is managed by a nice Innkeeper - Akula and if you're...

A backpacker hostel! The hostel is so nice. It's clean and tidy. Design and setting is simple while comfortable. Location is convenient! In between of three must-go area of KT. Simply walk down to street you can have plenty of food for dinner in night market. The best part I love the hostel is that travellers can easily gather in...

Nice place right in the center of Kenting main road. The owner is very nice, the place was clean and quiet, rooms are basic but big enough to move. You can also rent a bike for a cheaper price. It's a good cheap place for travelers on budget or young people.
