Our toilet in the private room leaked when you flushed it and the room had a constant smell of urine. There was no safe in the room. The cable TV had such poor reception it may as well of not been there, The WIFI was also terrible, slow and constantly dropping out. The location of the Hostel was good, nice and close to the subway and a great convenience across the road which was great for food/drinks/beers. The Atmosphere wasn't great as the common room was really small.

This hostel has a very nice location (and near a MTR station) for a very reasonable price. The main negative point is the very crappy WiFi, which mostly doesn't work in the rooms and also lags in the reception room.

great location, they have several buildings but rooms have all you need to sleep and shower

This hostel is well located, easy to find and, besides the tight room (that is a standard in the city) it was ok. Otherwise, the atmosphere is not that great, the common area is small and has a old fashion look, the kitchen is very limited, but is a cheap option is the city. You get what you pay for.

Location is great! 3 min walk to Causeway Bay shopping district. However, it is only the positive side of this hostel. The facilities are pretty poor, no reading light, few outlets in one room, wifi signal is poor, everything is kinda old, and not very well maintained. But still, if you are just looking for a place to sleep, it is a okay place.

Wang Fat was a really pleasant stay. Nice people, also kitchen facilities was a nice touch. Chubby hostel cat who loves to be pet! Beds were good, nice common area. Only downside was that the wifi was sometimes quite bad.

At first I didnt like it cuz it was so packed compared with the others I used to stay in. but I liked it very much at the end! Staff was so friendly & helpful. The guests there were super fun as well. I stayed in the different buidling so, it's a bit inconvient when I needed to go to the main building but eventually, the dorm room had its own bathroom. Yahoo! The hostel roof top was a kinda secret fun as well. The cleaning cud be a small issue but I just cleaned it myself so no complaint.

Nothing to complain about - if you want to stay in a upmarket area (i.e Causeway Bay) then you need to prepare to either pay more or lower your expectations. Very clean hostel, comfy beds air con and free wifi what more could a traveller need? Even a hotel in Hong Kong isn't going to be much bigger!?!

You get what you pay for. The staff is helpful and the beds are clean, but the bathrooms are not up to minimum standards. But hey, there is free coffee in the mornings!

Finding it is a bit difficult, but once you get to the third level (the office) it's all pretty self-explanatory. The staff is nice enough, the area is simple enough, they have public computers, books, morning coffee for free. It's simple but nice. The beds also happen to be pretty comfortable!

Recommended. I actually stayed at their location across the street. Great location near the shopping. Supermarket around the corner. Really do have 24 hour reception. Good Internet in rooms -- could Skype friends back home. Cable TV with about 12 channels, though only 1 in English (Pearl TV). Great showers with hot, hot water. Breakfast area only has coffee/tea from 8-10 AM. It was fairly quiet when I was there -- several Spanish families. Otherwise, could be a good place to meet others.

I had to move out because of the rugby tournament they wanted to rent out all the rooms and ask double the price. This was not very service-friendly.

Lady at reception is really friendly and helpful! Great location, easy access to transport and clean. Can be a bit hard to find, but there are many friendly people around who will happily help you find the exact location. When you find it, it's actually pretty obvious. I Definitely recommend it for the price.

OK hostel in a great location. Great hostel cat! Small common area with no comfortable chairs. Erratic WiFi. Very clean except for a moldy bathtub shower curtain.

This is my 3rd time here in the past 10 years and I'm always happy with my stay. I remember Mr. Sam every time and he's a decent guy! The location is amazing, right in the middle of the all the action!

One out of two electrical outlets didn't work, smell of sewer multiple times in the room and hallway, ants living in the walls and crawling up even to the bed sometimes (fortunately only a few). The water of the water dispenser in the lobby tasted really bad!
