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.

I found the hostel very difficult to find, the directions weren't very good. The WiFi was a nightmare and the rooms sub standard. The only saving grace was the people I met there, so the atmosphere was great!

Our room was in a different building around the corner of the reception. The description how to get to the hostel was very good, the location is very convenient near the Causeway Bay MTR station. WIFI did not work, but one could go to the reception and drink free coffee in the morning. It took a long time until the water in the shower was hot. Overall a good hostel!

Good enough for the price. No major annoyances. Nothing fascinating, but quite acceptable. Mattresses are too hard. Wi-fi doesn't work in some of the rooms.

There is a rooftop on the pictures which is why we chose the hostel. The rooftop was not available for the 4 days we stayed there...
