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!

The hostel is located in Causeway Bay which is a central shopping location. Our room was spacious, for Hong Kong with a nice window and quiet courtyard outside. The staff was very friendly when we checked in. Although we didn't hang out in the common room, it seemed very nice and a good place to hang out, though it was in a separate building from our room. The bed was very comfortable, overall I recommend this hostel, good price for a good room.


The location is certainly worth staying at, depending on what you're in HK to see. the main dorms are in the common area so can be a bit noisy, the bathrooms are decent and the facility as a whole is average. still, it's perfectly fine and I would probably stay there again. To get any real social atmosphere, go to the main building (the hostel is rather spread out) at night.


The day we arrived the hostel gave our room away so we were made to stay in a different building. The building was disgusting and our door didn't lock. We were very concerned for the safety of our belonging. The toilet seat was cracked, the bathroom was very dirty and the room smelled. Once we were moved to the main building we were very happy with our room and the service.

The staff are what set this hostel apart, especially Amy- such a friendly and helpful lady! My room was comfortable, although the shared bathroom wasn't the greatest. The reception was a good place to hang out, chat with other guests and access the internet. I was happy with my stay here.
