I can imagine this hostel being an even better place to stay during the busier months, but for my one night in Ngong Ping it was just what I needed. The receptionist was very nice, staying up late to make sure I got checked in and set up all okay. The whole hostel is secured by a fence and gate and also by the fact it is literally in the middle of nowhere :) Great and easy access to the Big Buddha, monastery and Lantau Peak trek. Hostel itself is pretty basic, but all you need for a quick stay


Definitely a place to stay just to hike Lantau Peak for sunrise. There isn't anything around it or close. The guy was really friendly and helpful though making sure we were taken care of.


The hostel is far away from the hustle and bustle of the HK centre. This is great and bad. Great because it is a perfect location to sit back and relax and feel like you're in nature. Bad because of the cost of busses/taxis that it takes to get back to the hostel. But the location was definitely the reason that I chose to stay here. With the hostel practically on the Lantau trail; I could go hiking whenever I felt like it. The Buddha and Monastery are great attractions as well.


Definitely not recommended for City boy or even small town girl. Location wasn't that convenient for a first-time-ever HK tourist. The double stories house is old and the rooms stink. Lack of experienced staffs and less hospitality staffs they have. Well, I'll think again to pay my next visit.

I had a little trouble getting to the place. I arrived in HK after the last bus up the mountain so, I took the Blue taxi. The driver dropped me off far from the pathway to the hostel. I got lost for a few hours but eventually got there. The location is great . I like to hike and this was the perfedt place to go for that.... It was easy to get around the New Territories beachers and other communities from there. BUT I wish the hours for the bus travel were extended to 8 or 9 pm.
