      Great place to stay, central and easy access to bus. ”

      The stay here was great, we were upgraded to a room for 4 when we only booked a room for 2. Happy to have received this upgrade. Room and bathroom was clean, but it seemed to have some mosquitoes, would recommend to bring repellents for the matter. Would recommend to take the bus from 枋寮 to 垦丁派出所 as the place is located right beside the police station and above 三哥火锅。You can hear some noises from downstairs as there is a night market and some restaurants but it ends about 11pm. Woukd recommend and come back again

      Amazing rooftop pool with view of the sunset! That alone is worth the extremely reasonable prices. Cute, clean, & comfortable rooms. Surrounding area is separate from the hustle and bustle of Kenting, but only a short ride away. Recommend getting your own transport (scooter or car) to explore the beautiful areas- up the East and West coasts, and up into the FRA. Loved it!

      Value-for-money stay with great service & location”

      Great service, great location, value-for-money

      I really enjoyed my stay at Austra Star Inn in March 2014. Firstly, it's amazingly value-for-money, considering that I paid hostel room rates for a spacious double room that comes with a private bathroom and TV. The room, given its price, really exceeded my expectations. Secondly, the owner is nice and friendly while giving you the space you would like to enjoy your stay in Kenting. He gave travel recommendations when asked and was generally very helpful. Thirdly, the location was great: at night, it's right in the heart of all Kenting Night Market buzz, with plenty of shops and food stalls around. There is a beach that's a short walk away. For those taking the bus from Kaohsiung, if you're not sure where to alight, do ask the driver to drop you off at the bus stop near Kenting Police Station. Austra Star Inn is located at the back of this mahjong game shop, look out for a bright blue sign with the hostel's name. Great minsu!

      Fuss-free stay!”

      Location, cleanliness and helpful staff

      Our stay at Austra Star Inn was pleasant, with its superb location along Kenting Main Road, where buses from other cities stop at. Room was clean and simple, will all the essentials. However, the mattress was a bit hard to sleep on, other than that, no major comments. Staff was friendly and offer advice readily on how to get about in Kenting. At night, the main road transforms into the night market which is a long stretch of shopping and food tasting. On a side note, the road is still open to traffic so have to be mindful of vehicles. Accomodation costs in Kenting is generally higher compared to other parts of Taiwan, so i would think the rates are quite fair, although there are no shortages of such accomodations along Kenting Main Road at similar rates.

      This is a family run small hotel with no lift service, you need to carry your own luggage to your room. However, the hotel counter staff are very friendly. And they are also able to provide you the good advices, such as activities, food and sideseeing places.

      Comfortable Room Directly on the Kenting-Jie Road”

      Great Location, Affordable Price

      The accommodations met or exceeded all of my expectations during my stay. Although their English language ability was limited, the staff was very friendly when I engaged them in Mandarin. If I am solo traveling in Kenting again, I would definitely go back. The hotel was located directly on the main Kenting-jie road, but I was given a room near the rear of the building and I hardly noticed any of the usual noise (I have stayed in Kenting many times before and this is not always the case with hotels located directly on the main road which turns into a night market at night). There was no food or dining available as indicated on the webpage, but the staff offered tea while I waited for my taxi to leave. The shower towels were a little "bare thread" but otherwise all was well in the room.

      Lovely little hotel”

      In the heart of Kenting town

      A very small little hotel entrance that leads you to wonderful and friendly staffs. They can help you like arranging transport, guiding you around Kenting etc. Nice comfy mattress on wooden platforms with very little walking space (not affecting us much). Very spacious bathroom. Very convenient as the bus from Koahsiung will stop at one of the nearby shops, so you do not need to carry your baggages and walk for long distance. Night market is just right below, so if you do not mind the noise of the stalls, it is a wonderful place to stay cuz you do not need transport to get to the night market and you get good snacks for dinners and suppers. Overall, a wonderful stay!

      Good hotel for the money”

      Location is right on the strip, clean

      This is a great place to stay if you are using at just as a place to sleep. With that, it has a large shower room, comfortable beds, clean sheets, and clean pillow cases. The room is small but adequate. The only criticism is that are room was not supplied with toilet paper. Instead we were supplied with long "sheets" wrapped in plastic, and only given 6 sheets. Not enough for even one person, and we were there 3 nights. Recommend this place. Great option for the money and location.

      Tricky to find but once you do it’s great”

      We decided to stay here after meeting some guys that got a great deal on a room. After booking, we followed the given address with no luck. After searching about an hour we asked a taxi driver and he said “hot pot, close to police station” giving him the puzzled look we did he drove us to the hot pot restaurant and told us to go in. As confused as we were we went in and sure enough you find “dragonfly travel” or something like that (still confused about the whole name thing) but sure enough this was the place we booked. Booked a 1 bed room for me and my bro (wanting to be cheap) and sure enough we had 2 beds waiting for us so no complaints there. The room was extremely clean as was the bathroom. Only reason I knock the location is the fact it’s so tough to find, besides that it is in the middle of the night market and a 5 minute walk from the beach. Would definitely recommend to any group travelers as it is a cheaper route than hostels 👍🏼

      Right in the heart of Kenting Main Street, worth the money.”

      The entrance is located at the back of a hotpot restaurant - it would be a little difficult to find if you don't know how to read Chinese. Just look out for the main board! There is no lift up to the room, but the room is quite spacious and very clean for the amount you pay. It's very convenient to rent a electric bike to get around the island as there are many places nearby that provide that service. The night market is also very bustling at night, we were not too bothered by the noise - you don't really hear much. Even with a club diagonally across you.

Help translate for us so we could hire an electric scooter at a good price. Help with bus schedules. Awesome bloke. Thanks for making our kenting stay so easy. Accom is right in the middle of kenting night market which was very handy but still quiet enough to get a good nights sleep without being annoyed by the noise. Entrance to the hotel is through a restaurant (thought I'd add it in as it took us a while to find it). Definitely stay here again.

      Service, location, food around

      We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and it is surprising that there is no one coming to clean our room or even change our towels at all. And we paid around 500USD for 3 nights. It is far too overpriced even though it is at peak season.

      Great location, Clean and spacious room

      I was given a room on the second floor. Given the price, the room was very spacious and bed was clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of the night market with easy access to everything. Given that the hotel rooms are right above a mahjong game store (an interesting bingo kind of matching game using mahjong tiles) you can hear the occasional shuffling of tiles (they dont get a lot of customers), but all is good once the store stops operation for the night around 10+ pm.
