Bayhouse Hostel Penghu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Together with 5 friends I stayed in the bayhouse for 3 nights. It was wonderful. The place is quite new, very clean, there are good showers and the beds are great (which is not very common for a hostel). Frank, the owner, is very helpful. As other reviewers mentioned the "big" city is indeed a little far, around 8km. However, also the area near the bayhouse there is enough to do. I can really recommend to go to a little surfhouse(5min walk), owned by a south African named Ted. He makes delicious sandwiches. Concluding I can just really recommend to go to Penghu and stay at this hostel.

Very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff, always ready to help.

The hostel is near the beautiful Shanshui beach, but a bit far from Magong and other attractions. However, there is a bus stop five minutes away (by walking) from the hostel. The staff can also help you call a taxi. Besides, there is a shuttle that could either pick up you at the airport or harbour or drive you there.
I recommend it.

During my stay at Penghu Hostel i had a great time! First of all, free airport pick up !!! The Hostel has a very personal atmosphere, the house is painted colourful and every room has its own topic like "surfing" or "diving". Moreover this hostel is only 2 minutes away from the beach! During my stay there i had a bad scooter accident on my way to town, i broke my shoulder etc.
Without the owner of the hostel and his immediate help im not sure whether i would have made it back to Taipei or whether i would have been able to communicate to the authorities. He came to the Hospital talked to the Doctors etc. picked me up, went to the airport with us and organized to rebook flights. Absolutely great! I can only advise you to come here! Thanks again for all your help Frank!

okay, why the staff was awesome:
1. usually you have to book via internet. i didnt have internet but damian was super understanding he still kept the room for me. looked forward to my trip to penghu.
2. picked me up from the harbour, he and his adorable korean wife are super nice, caring and funny too.
3. the staff actually taught me how to ride a motorcycle.
4. they hooked me up with other guest and we roadtripped the whole island.
5. you could tell that all of them are not just talking to you because thats what you SHOULD do as a staff person, but that they are really interested in you as a person and honestly want your stay in penghu to be as memorable as possible. and it was.

+ very clean
+ great rooms, every guest has their own locker
+ kitchen, fridge, computer, wifi, big living room
+ food and beach round the corner. (great beach to swim btw)
+ lots of trips organized by the hostel
+ student discount
- the city center is indeed very far away, but you need a vehicle anyway in penghu. or just wait for the staff to hook you up with other guest. haha.

thank you thank you thank you.

The staff is very nice and helpful! The hostel is clean and everything is pretty new. Also, it is situated a few minutes walk from the beach :) They can book boat rides to the surrounding islands or water sports activities for you. They can also help you to rent ebikes/motorbikes. I booked a package including boat ride to Jibei/ebike rental/snorkeling and I was very satisfied with the service. In addtion: free shuttle bus service from/to the airport!

Beds and living area are well organized. Their staff members are wiiling to help you. You can meet young Taiwanese travellers in this hostel. It's fun bcoz usually we meet international travllers except local travellers in hostels. I could enjoy the Penghu island FULLY with staying here.
But if you don't take a motorcycle, you couldn't go around the island.But the staff will find a solution for you. and then you can't cook in the kitchen. it's the same as other hostels in Taiwan but I wish it would be possible. bcoz supermarkets and restaurants are far from the hostel.
