Small and poky...I wouldn't want to pay more than the equivalent of 200 HK$. Needs to be a better map and directions showing the way.


Difficult to find because the address on my booking was different from the actual reception. HK Hostel is the real name. Staff were not great communicators, either completely silent or barking incomprehensibly. Must be a HK thing. Despite this, it's a decent hostel where it is easy to meet others, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the price is right!


Well...where to begin. 6 room dorm is tiny with bathroom inside room (toilet 1 meter from bed...Yum!) Bunkbeds are tiny and you can feel each spring in the mattress. So much light coming in from the dismal blinds in the mornings and traffic/construction will wake you up bright and early. Room wasn't cleaned once during our four night stay and there were dirty towels, empty beer cans, and trash from before we arrived that were never cleaned. Dont expect free coffee past 9am

Central check in center is on the third floor beside burberry. No problems checking in (thanks to other reviewers!) and was pleasantly surprised at how large the room was considering it's HK. Room was clean, bathroom was clean and had excellent wifi connection. No problems at all. Considering it's a hostel, we had our own bathroom in the room which was nice.


Need to bring your own towels and pillow case. So dirty. T

No free water and obvious hostel naming more than once to receive different bookings. When I checked out they were surprised that I had water for a shower. Would be good for larger groups as it is a separate apartment and had two bathrooms.


잠자기에는 딱좋은 곳 프론트에서는 영어가 되시는 분이 있으니 영어로 물어보면 되고 방은뭐 그럭저럭 쏘쏘 하다.

You should be more clear on your instructions, if we didn't bump into someone we would be wondering where to go, as the kingston inn is clearly not managed at its front desk. and we then didn't even stay there. and then you tell us me should take a double bed, when i booked a twin.


The staff who look like a student ,she is very nice, thanks


The plug socket and night light did not work. The wifi advertised also didn't work, management said they would check it out but no one did. The corner of the room (next to my bed) had a small pool of water and pubic hair. The air conditioner was very noisy. Would not recommend.

The price is fair but the direction is not really clear and booking management can be better.


There are many hostel in the Causeway bay. It seems like that there is a one main reception. so have to go to Paterson Building (Next door to BURBERRY, Hostel's own address is not important). I couldn't use WIFI in the room. There are locker in the room. but needed own lock.
