Property Description

The Mahjong is Hong Kong's first boutique hostel, centrally located in an authentic local neighbourhood - Tokwawan.

We are NOT close to subway station yet (new subway line will open just downstair in 2019), but we are superbly connected by over 30 bus routes to the city's hustling bustling attractions, and just a stone's throw from its renowned mountain & coastal charms. All buses stop right outside The Mahjong - we are just 15-20 mins from Tsim Sha Tsui & Mong Kok, and only 25-30 mins from Causeway Bay & Central. The Mahjong neighbourhood is a foodie's paradise and still a best kept secret amongst locals. So come stay with us, and experience Hong Kong as the locals do!

We have a large social lounge for you to meet people around the world. Custom built bunk beds that maximise privacy with personal light & electric sockets, keycard security locker, and privacy screen. Thick 6' hotel grade mattresses and fluffy pillows guarantee you a good night's rest. Designer touches around the hostel showcase Hong Kong heritage and culture. Friendly and knowledgable local staff are here ready to share our local experience with you.

The Mahjong is a Licensed Guesthouse (General) under Office of the Licensing Authority in Hong Kong. View House Rules

    The staff was super helpful and it was only because of their help that I was able to do everything I wanted in Hong Kong in a limited time. It's admittedly a little far away from the main area but it's a nice neighborhood to be in.

    Directions from the airport to the hostel since you arrive are very clear! I never got lost or felt that the information in the follow-up emails from the hostel were unclear. In addition, wherever I would end up from my strolling or hiking, I knew that I could ask about directions or suggestions through their weChat account and they would reply very fast and with clear answers. Suggestions on food, hikes & transportation were helpful and honest. I felt safe and clean. I'd stay here again.Thanks!

    Even a 10 room dorm didn’t seem crowdy and that’s a great feeling....(even though we were 6 at a time). Everything good about this place. Well done, keep it up

    I had a very pleasant stay at the Mahjong. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the hostel was clean and welcoming. Yes, it does take 30-40 mins on the bus to get to Central but I think it is a great opportunity to explore a part of Hong Kong that most travellers would miss otherwise. There was heaps of delicious and cheap local restaurants around as well as interesting sights like food markets. There also seemed to be a number of solo travellers staying at the hostel which was great for me.

    I was looking to get off the beaten path and this hostel offered exactly that seemed like a boutique hostel. Stayed in a room with 6 queen sized beds and it was very comfy. The room had 6 queen sized beds, 2 ensuite bathrooms, and large overall sized rooms. The facility has keypad code to get in building and keycard to enter your room. Beds have a nice privacy screen. Large open community room that I didn't see many people using.

    I've now stayed in four hostels in Hong Kong on various trips, and this was by far my favorite. While it's not especially centrally located, it's easy enough to get around, and I had a lot of fun exploring some of the less heavily touristed areas surrounding To Kwa Wan. The facilities were remarkably clean, the bed very comfortable, and the biggest point of note was how spacious it is.

    Staff was kind and clear. Location is fair, very easy to get anywhere from the hostel with a 15min bus ride. Facilities are just ok but cleanliness of bunks could be improved. Also there was no locker service just a small security box.
