Helpful staff. Rooms are well air conditioned. We had a twin private room. It wasn't a big room as i was expecting for Hongkong, but was more spacious than i thought. Good en suit and clean. The common room is a good place to meet people (with no air con so does get hot). Not far from the MTR which is linked to get to everywhere you need to go.

Ok hostel, fine location and clean beds. Like many places in Hong Kong it is very small and some rooms don't have windows. The bathrooms were very old and mouldy but had hot water for showers. Staff wasn't speaking much english so they weren't much help when checking in as if having questions. They could not tell me how to get to the airport at night. Aircon was good in my room and there were lockers big enough to fit my backpack. Wifi was only in common areas and not always working.

Maybe inform travellers beforehand that tou hostel has rooms located in a different building and that people living there have to come to the other building for reception etc. In addition to that it should be mentiones that there is a cat living in the hostel because some people might have a cat hair allergy. it didnt affect me personally so I had a great stay.

Not a good wifi connection and the staff were a little confused, but very kind. The room wasn't in very good conditions but it was as clean as possible. The location was amazing.

Location was excellent. We had no trouble finding the building, but there was no information as to what level the hostel was on. Thankfully there was another guest waiting at the elevator.

I reserved the 8-bed dorm, which I had enjoyed in the past. But this time I was "upgraded" to a three-bed room. In fact, the 8-bed dorm was more comfortable; the 3-bed room was tiny and windowless. But either way, this hostel is probably the best deal in Hong Kong -- excellent location for a competitive price, efficiently managed, with large lockers. I come to HK often and this is the top hostel on my list.

Room photos on website seem much better than actual room. No hooks in bathroom to hang clothes and towels. Half of shower door was missing. Only one available socket to charge electronic devicesdevices, insufficient. I don't mind the cramped room, just need hooks, shelves or bars to hang clothes and bags

Room smelled bad and had no windows. However, staff changed me when I asked for it. Also saw a rat in the corridors. But bathrooms are clean and the location in really good, close to Causeway Bay metro station.

Staff very helpful. Towel rental was free for us but not sure if it's like that during the busy season. Very clean, newly remodeled/painted room. Great overall!

This was a great stay! Central location, easy to get to. Stifling in the building itself, but it's HK. I would definitely stay here again if I am ever back in HK. Thanks for a great trip.

Very good hostel and staff. Enjoyed the stay.

This hostel is great value for money as Hong kong is expensive amd the location is great. The facilities are basic but clean. We only for a private room with shared bathroom but was upgraded to a room with an ensuite. The main issue I found was with the staff, they were polite but did seem annoyed if asked questions. They also told us the scanner was broken and wanted to charge 7hkd per page to do scan for us. It turns out the scanner was fine.

The hostel is enclosed in between the concrete jungle, with hogh rise biilding on all sides. Not much daylight seeps through. My room did not have window and was very small, standard for Hong Kong. There is basically no kitchen and only about two forks and a spoon. It is very dark and stuffy inside the hostel. The only advantage is it is cheap and located in the centre district.

We gave this room to you as we want to upgrade you to 3 Bed dormitory which is higher in value. If you prefer bigger dormitories, you may request a change of room which is always welcome. Your room is near to our common area which consists of a small pantry with some simple cooking facilities (electric cooking pot , rice cooker and mircowave oven).hopefully next time if you have any requests please come to us directly and we will try our best to help you. Thank you. Regards, Hong Kong Hostel

The toilet and the shower were not separated. The place was a little unclean.

staff need customer service training.... very rude and unprofessional.

I gave a low mark for facilities just because the WiFi was so bad, and also the toilets seemed to always be out of toilet paper, but otherwise this was a really cool hostel with a great locaton and a good vibe.
