Everything literally shuts down at 6 pm, so plan ahead! Very peaceful and quiet at hostel and Ngong Ping. Good hiking to Lantau Peak and Buddha. Bring own lock for lockers. Most quilts in room smelled musty. You must leave hostel during day hours so plan accordingly. Staff [Mouse] helpful with routes and things to do. Definitely would stay here again.
the linen seemed dirty. i think after the arrival of the cable car nothing much has been going on anymore at the hostel or around there. no restaurants available after 6 pm and no atmosphere in the hostel itself.
An amazingly peaceful, quiet, isolated atmosphere due to location which was what i wanted. But if, by atmosphere, you want fun and people and partying then no, there was none at all, its not that sort of hostel. It's in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by jungle, by birds and the sound of wind. I relaxed here away from the city & loved it. Wifi sometimes slow. Showers basic. But hostel has old school style. Best things - the huge kitchen & cooking gear & lantau trail on doorstep .
Before you book this hostel make sure the location suits your needs. Surrounded by green and right next to the big Budha this is a great choice if you're planning on exploring Lantau, go hiking, staying close to the nature etc. However, if you want to go sightseeing this place might not be for you. The best of the hostel is the fully equiped kitchen and the worst is the cleanliness, it's a very dirty property.
