          Good vibes!”

          This is a very social hostel with a good vibe! It's easu to meet other travelers yp hang out with, drink beers or go for fpos together. The volunteers are so amazing, very welcoming! A special thanks to Caren for showing me all the good food places in town! The beds are comfy, the shower is good and hot. We didn't need the aircon this time of year, so it was definately not too hot in the room. Few minor details that could be improved: - they seem to run out of coffee every morning at breakfast. Why not simply make a second pot? People pay for their breakfast, so they want their coffee. - The door of the 8-bed dorm on the 4th floor makes a lot of noise when opening/closing. Maybe this could be repaired?

          Excellent”

          The hostel was very close to the Hengchun bus station and therefore easy to reach. The breakfast was very delicious, although the portion was a little small. The hostel provided a map of restaurants and shops in the area which was very helpful. The rooms at the end of the building have their windows towards a courtyard where unfortunately three very loud cats started meowing early in the morning. Not the hostel's fault, yet maybe to be kept in mind when requesting a room :)

          Cool place with pub & surfing”

          It's located in Hengchun which is a little way outside Kenting Street and other sights in the are. For me it was no problem since a rented bicycle was enough to move around, and I came especially for the surfing lessons they provided. The bunk beds were very spacey and comfortable and staff like most of the Taiwan hostels: shy but nice.

          very good breakfast with variety”

          Stayed there for 3 nights and they had different breakfast served for all 3 mornings. Chill vibe, friendly staffs making it a cosy stay. 3-5mins walk to Hengchun Bus Terminal with many local eateries, cafes and restaurants within walking distance. McDonald's and Starbucks is about 5mins ride away with a scooter. Good place to stay for anyone of all ages, but not so for light sleeper as soundproofing is non-existent

          Nice atmosphere, no bunk beds, so for a tall guy it's comfortable to sleep. There is a lot of space in the hostel and the people are friendly there.
