You can't use the computer (only one out of two was working) between 1am and 9am which I wasn't best pleased about. Wifi is available only in the communal area and not from my room. Hostel is in a residential building and I noticed a sign downstairs saying that the hostel is actually "illegally operated" which made me feel uneasy. However great location in the middle of Causeway Bay and close to the bus to the airport and MRT station.


Simple hostel, but it gives you what you need in a good location for a reasonable price (in Hong Kong).


Run illegaly, hard to find, location okay, staff very unfriendly and mostly not english speaking, cleaning lady wakes everybody up late night and early in the morning, constuction noise around the clock, they change the rates every day, the price is waaay to much, rooms very small, kitchen facilities very poor, wifi on and off slowly and only in few spots. the only reason i kept staying there was cuz there were some other nice people trapped in this place


Switching the tank on for hot water was different for us, so that along with the hot water tap needing to be turned to the middle, not left or right, was a bit confusing so we had a cold shower at first! Also had a burnt out light, but other than that the room was lovely. (Tiny!!)

Like it. just worth it's price.


This hostel is very simple but it have all necesary for you stay confortable in a a very good location.


It looks way more expensive than it is. Location is best possible. One of the best dorms in my life.


This is actually the first time i travelled to Hong Kong and stayed in the hostel. First i get lost because there has no sign of the hostel. So you have to look very carefully. The location is fantastic, only 5 mins from the shopping street and i love it! I met a lot of nice people who also backpacking just like me. This hostel made me feel like home. If i ever come back to HK again, now i know where to stay!

I have stayed several hostels in HK, this one is the worst so far. I booked the backpacker hostel, but the address is wrong, nobody answer the door. Then I asked next door hostel , she said she owns the two hostels, but she can't find my booking information.After I paid, she said I should move to another building?! Moreover, another building has cut off the water supply until 11pm, I should come back for shower. Actually, there is no water until I checked out. And the facility is not good ~


we planned to stay there for 3 days and ended up staying for a week!!!the hostel is clean and has a very good atmosphere. the common area is a bit small and you probably have a room in another building (they own 4 building all very close) but overall is a very good place to stay.they have a roof top where you can spend some time and is very easy to meet a lot of people. i definitely recommend it!


The corridors were messy but the room was clean. We had a 3 person room and were 2, which was ok in term of size...but 3 people in it...no way! We woke up early and came back late every day so in our case it was a good place juste to sleep. No need for more. Good location, MTR very close, buses, supermarket, shops and food!
