          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!

          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.

          Service of the hotel is awesome, very friendly and helpful

          A very homely place to be.. not very hard to locate, for first time tourist it is just opposite the Kenting express bus stop, it near the end of the Kenting street beside the local police station. You will have to walk through a game arcade which is close in the day but the door is open you could just walk in straight. Very friendly receptionist, had a great chat with him at the lobby in the night. Great room, spacious with spacious toilet, no issue with the room. Not all rooms have drawing but its OK. Heard from the receptionist that they are going to paint the rest of the rooms by the end of this year so great news for us. Pictures posted by the hotel are accurate, very accessible situated along the main street of Kenting, walking distance to the beach. They provide day tours as well so you could inquire with the receptionist. Very friendly owner, bought a day tour package from them and manage to tour most of the attraction despite we arrive the place at 1pm in the afternoon. Later we found out that the tour guide was actually the owner of the hotel, so pretty impress with him as well. Very helpful very friendly, no hard sell of any products or must go retail places. Feel very relax touring the place. Feel free to ask them for recommendation, clear directions would be provided as well. Thus take your time to explore the place. Good for relaxation, lots of things to shop as well and relatively cheaper than Taipei.

          In the town centre, next to a police station, clean, friendly.

          the austra star inn was a nice and cheap place to stay in kenting. you do not pay much so do not expect too much either, but it was comfortable nonetheless. we had a particularly large room with a large attached shower and bathroom. we also had a tv with many english speaking channels including hbo. in terms of location, it was perfect. it was right in the centre of kenting town, in walking distance to a few different beaches and extremely close to many eateries. check-in was smooth and painless and the receptionist just stayed out the way most of the time which was perfect for us. he only told us to wash the sand from our feet before coming into the hotel, which is not a big deal. i recommend this hotel for the budget conscious, it treated us well!

          Superb value for money. Great location which we took a kenting express bus no 9189. Ticket can be bought at kau siong fast train station at price of nt1300 for 2 with return. Around 2 hrs journey n the bus driver drop us at kenting night market bus stand. The inn located just beside police station which took us around 5 minutes walking distance( with luggage) . Easily ask around if unable to locate the inn as local confirm know the police station location. Easily rent a electric bike beside the inn n roam around the town. Remember to try the duck me at heng chuan n seafood at a fish market but both required own transport to access which make the motor usefull.

          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.

          Near Kenting night market, close to restaurants and shopping, drop/pick up point opposite the hotel if taking buses.

          Room is clean and Kenting street/night market is right in front of the hotel. This place does not have lift, hence you will need to carry your own luggage up to the rooms. Do tell the driver where you stay so they can drop you off at the area (police station) which is the nearest to Austra star inn.

He helped us to take the luggage upstairs and downstairs because there's no lift. He also arranged a car from Kenting to Kaohsiung for us, with reasonable price (even cheaper than the bus fare!)

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.

          Staff helpful, central location, price good

          We quickly realised this was the best value hotel on the Main Street in Kenting. We initially only booked for one night, not knowing how long we were going to stay. We looked around at other places but this really represented the best value. It's clean, the room size is adequate, and the staff were helpful and friendly. We had a room at the back, so it was quiet. The street quietens down around 11pm anyway. We hired bikes from a place nearby (Austra had no bikes for hire) and the hotel let us leave them in the office overnight. There is a water filter in the hallway where you can get hit and cold water. Would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a standard hotel room that's not too expensive.

          located at kenting street

          The hotel is conveniently located at the main street at kenting town. The hotel rooms are clean, free wifi and value for money. The only drawback is there is no elevator. The hotel staffs are excellently trained and provided very good service. Strongly recommended for young travelers who wants a hassle free experience.

          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!

          Excellent staff, wonderful space”

          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!

          Not horrible, but you can definitely do better”

          low price

          I have very neutral opinions about Austra Star Inn. If you are stuck for a cheap place to stay, its Clean, and thats more than you could want. The room had no problems whatsoever. The bed was too hard for our liking, and we didnt' sleep very well. This was also due to the excessive noise from outside. The hotel is on top of a very busy and popular game arcade. Also, the main strip is a night circus of carnival games, and street food. You will definitely hear all the comings and goings of hundredsss of people. If you like to spend your time partying, you will probably be fine crashing here, and you can walk right up to your room from the main street. If you are like us and you want a good rest, this may not be the best choice. It is literally right in the middle of the action. Decide if that is good for you or not. If you want high comfort and ammenities, book elsewhere. If you just want a place to crash after a night out, this is perfect. You can also walk to the beach quite easily. And like, I said, its very clean. Cleanliness can make or break a place!
