The staff on duty, Scott, is a great help. He knows the area well and gave me useful advice. The room is decent, there is a heater and a fan. And the bathrooms are not the worst. They are just old. Great location for the trails but a bit of a walk with luggage from the drop off location. I would come back again. Next time, i'll bring my own food since there aren't shops open too late or too early.


Excellent location for hiking and great staff who are happy to help you. Whole hostel needs a bit of an upgrade though as it all felt a bit old-fashioned! Also keys for dorm rooms would be good for added security. Would stay again for location and great staff!


the staff on duty, Scott, is excellent! he provided directions and advice on trails and the timings for the buses operating in Lantau. surroundings are clean, and there is hot water for bathing. Prices stated (while booking) does not include the cost of signing up for an annual YHA membership, it is a requirement to stay in a YHA hostel. the membership requirement is only stated in the terms and conditions at the bottom of the page. prices should include that part to show the overall price.

I liked the location. Was quiet and relaxing. Good hikes in the area. The room and building was basic, but clean.


I loved this place because of its location and its simplicity. The hostel's spot up on the hill is very quiet and peaceful, far from the commercial vibe of the Big Buddha tourist village. My one complaint would be YOU NEED TO BE A YHA MEMBER to get the low dorm rate. I didn't know this and had to sign up and pay ~150 HKD for a one-year membership. All in all, this is a great place to sleep and have a base for hiking and quiet meditation. Simple, clean, and be sure to bring your own food!!!
