We had 2 private rooms (twin beds). We would've liked some warmer bedding since the room had only a wall heater and it was pretty dang cold. Rooms had good security and private bathrooms (though the walls were see-through). Staff were pretty good and we liked the on-site food/drink options. We did the tour to Mutianyu and thought the price was fair. However, they push very hard for you to take the cable car up which is not included in the tour. Don't be afraid to walk up if that what you want.
Compared to other places I've stayed in HK this was a great, clean, safe hostel! Would definitely stay here again. Was in the 6-bed female dorm. Quite small, but it is Hong Kong so that's sort of normal.
We enjoyed our stay at Pandora. Great location, staff was generally helpful. Door situation was challenging. Staff did not answer buzz, every time had to wait for someone to come along. We had the double deluxe room, which is just off the main area, so a little noisy. Our "balcony" was shared with other hostel guests. Deluxe room was nice, great bathroom.
Location is excellent. Staff very helpful. My only issue is that this is a BIG hostel. It also feels a little corporate. I found it rather intimidating as a solo traveler. But for all the important things it is excellent value for money. Also they have free toast and coffee/tea in the morning, which I thought was nice.
First time with Nomads and it was a good experience. Good facilities, staff, location, security. Great location. Would stay with them again.
Staff were very helpful with travel advice, very warm and friendly. No lockers, but they were able to hold items in their back office for us. Great location. Also, can make bookings for local events which was very convenient. A small hostel, but I found that a nice change from the large ones we've stayed in elsewhere. Would stay here again!
Great location close to beach, cool atmospheric buildings, staff very helpful, comfortable beds, good food available for decent price. Only things I didn't like: poor lighting in rooms, bathroom a little dingy, and water very tepid. Overally highly recommended.
On the surface the hostel looks great, but it was seriously lacking in facilities. Location was okay. No stores in the area, in a sort of business district. Neighborhood completely dead. We booked the 4 bed female dorm which was at the end of the hall beind a beaded curtain with no sign on the door and also no lock. Seemed very strange. ONE bathroom/shower room for the entire hostel. Not very clean. Staff moderately helpful, but seemed very disorganized. No cold water or change.
