During my stay in Kenting, I slept in one of the famous surf-hotels in the area. There are actually homes that are adapted to be hotels. They are carried out by a professional that, for a small fee, gives you accommodation, breakfast and surf lessons (with equipment included). There are many places like that in this city. The rooms are very new, the decor is very personal in every room, and the decor is always colorful and surfer-oriented. The bed was pretty large and the homemade breakfast wasn't bad at all. What more could you want? The reception was decorated in a very casual manner, with surfboards everywhere but without sense of disorder. Both the counter and the doors were lined with pictures of friends and other guests who had been through the place (as I understood, once a famous guy from Taiwan even dropped by). The deal was very friendly from the beginning. Also for a very cheap sum, you could "complete the set" by renting a motorcycle to navigate the area.
Hosted in a big king-sized room, nice, but excessively expensive, especially the wifi, it costs 800 Thai dollars (or 20 euros) an hour. The best part is that it's central, right next to Taipei 101 and the World Trade Center.
I arrived in Taipei after travelling through Southeast Asia for about eight or nine weeks and I can say that this hostel is far and away the best we stayed in during our Asian travels. The staff (young people of various nationalities) are gracious, friendly, and happy to help you with anything you might need. They organise parties at the weekend, or if it's your birthday while you're staying - as it was in my case. There's always something to celebrate! The facilities are great, clean, new and well-maintained. The showers and bathrooms are always, ALWAYS clean, despite being communal for the whole hostel. They have a kitchen and a lounge where you can rest, relax, play guitar, or just chill out. The rooms are nice, with air conditioning. They are spacious and comfortable - no-frills but adequate. It's close to a subway station, with a supermarket nearby, a 7-Eleven and some restaurants. You're just three minutes from one of the most popular pubs in Taipei, the Roxy 99. All this for a great price!
I suppose that for 10 € a night in Taiwan you can´t expect too much. As I arrived earlyin the morning in Taipei, two days before I sent an email asking the owner what time I could check in and if I could leave the luggage at the hostel. She answered and when I got to the hostel I found that the reception is only open from 9 to 23h, so I had to wait over an hour with my luggage. I had two roommates, Japanese, and she forgot to give them the key to the front door, and at midnight they were banging on the door for a while. Moreover, the site is well connected with direct airport bus and metro and train station alongside, it is nicely decorated. The wifi works very fast.
