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...
Best place to experience the city. Period. Will be back! Jan

This is one of the better values for your money in Hong Kong. It's in a great location and is run in a professional manner. It is reasonably clean and well kept. Keep in mind the common area is small and not the best place for meeting your fellow travelers. Hong Kong lacks the traditional hostels found in many other countries and this place is one of the best options in the city at this price point.
This place seems to be one of the better values for your money in Hong Kong and it was relatively clean. It's in a solid location and is an easy spot to embark on trips around the area. The staff is fairly helpful as well. They have a small common area for connecting with other travelers, that only has tables...no couches or areas for really lounging around. That did make connecting with travelers more challenging, but it was still possible to socialize. I would stay there again.

Daily cleanings of the room, but still many bugs along the wall between washrooms, and sometimes elsewhere. There was an unpleasant English man staying in the room and working at the hostel who would tell us if we were or were not allowed to do things, which I thought was unprofessional and off-putting. He is an equal guest when he is in the room and should act like it. The location was good. Separate room from the main building, still 2 minute walk to Causeway Bay Station. Grocery store nearby.
Decent hostel; fairly clean and excellent location. Of course the room was small, but was just big enough. However; our toilet didn't flush and they didn't really make an effort to fix it, hot water is not so reliable. Also, when I tried to change my towels at the reception (after 3 days; as we were there for 6 days); we had to pay to change them!! You get only 1 set; no matter how long you stay. Weird. Much much better than Chung King Mansions though; worth the little bit of extra money!
Right next the heart of causeway bay. Easy and convenient transportation. This place has some satellite rooms-locations. Providing a homey atmosphere. Facilities are sufficient, our apartment had a kitchen.
Great location at a good price. Room not cleaned before I arrived but this was quickly sorted
