The rooms are a bit small but if you don't have much luggage you won't have any problems. We stayed there as a group so there was no need for lockers. But if you're traveling alone make sure to ask for them because our room didn't have any. All in all a good location and a convenient hostel.

Pictures were completely misleading. I paid the same amount for a dorm-style room which was absolutely horrifying. It looked nothing like the pictures presented online. The dorm-style room I stayed in was tight and dingy. It was an absolute shock. Granted they do have nice rooms like those posted online, but they also have horrifying rooms they don't show full pictures of. I would never recommend staying here to anyone. I paid for my room, but could not bring myself to stay there.

The staff was very nice and helpful. Decently close to the MTR. Near the night market on Temple street and close to the Jade market as well. The room was great and we enjoyed our stay!


Good hostel, not so crowded and crazy like the ones in Mong Kok or Tsim Sha Tsui so this is definitely a better alternative.


Double bed private room is located inside a flat, so to reach the room, you have to pass the common area where people are sleeping (I guess those beds in the common area represent 2 bed dorms, so if you book the dorm type with shared bathroom you basically sleep in the common area where everyone is passing through). So not much privacy there and the atmosphere depends on the people in the flat. I was with my friend and had nice people, so it was okay, otherwise, I would be scared to stay there.


Having stayed at 5 or 6 places in Hong Kong, for the price this is probably the best. A good location mid way between Monkok and the harbour, means both are within good walking distance.Very clean though clinical, comfortable, unusually a small lounge area and in mine, a small kitchen area so quite well equipped. Rooms not too small nor too many beds. Some staff perhaps don't recognise the value of their customers and could do better but overall, at the right price , hard to beat.


I was asked to wait while they finished cleaning, but then the staff disappeared. Finally at 7pm I knocked on a dorm door and picked a bed that the others said was free. Staff never told me the password to get in the hostel or in any dorm. Other travellers told me. At 1:30am the one of the staff came into the dorm and asked at the top of his voice, waking everybody - what my name was and how long I was staying. He asked several times even though I had answered. Ridiculous and rude.


A phone was stolen from the room we were in overnight sometime between 1am and 9am. Doors were locked. Room was alright aside from this, however we were moved to a different floor in the block upon arrival. Avoid.

I am sorry for that happened, but we really dont wanna something like this happen in my house. You are came late night, and total 8 peole stayed two room. You said that you have no lock the room door because your friends want into both room without room key. 8 people stay in two room, we can control anything, right?


Lovely stay here, I love the staff. Their english speaking is adorable (good enough). Fast and easy check in and check out. Amazing Internet connection, great location. Good price.
