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.

    Love the vibe and people are friendly. Easy to go to the Airport and city. Bus station right in front of the hostel gets you everywhere in HK.

    Absolutely fantastic, not a bad word to say about the place. Everything was always clean, private bunks, strong power showers, convenient lounge area and to top it off I left my phone in my bed and checked out and a friendly member of staff ran all the way down the street to the bus stop just to return it to me, thanks again!

    Nice clean hostel, lady at the front desk was very kind and helpful. Location is a bit out of the way but not too bad. Visited in September and the hostel was very quiet, maybe low season

    Very clean hostel and nice staff. Apart from the bedroom there is only one shared communal area, so it is not possible to get privacy to make a call within range of the wifi, so I do not recommend this hostel if anybody has to do a work call while they travel. Wifi was very poor. Otherwise very pleasant experience here, nice relaxed vibe in the hostel.

    Decent stay. stayed in 8 man dorm. Pros: small safe, reading ligth, poweroutlet and privacy curtain. Daily cleaning. Bathroom, toliets and shower was clean. Enough shower and toliets. Had soap, shampoo and towels. Free towel for each bed also, which is nice. staff was nice and friendly. Cons: Lacking of atmosphere at the hoste,not the best location, far from underground. But plenty of buses just outside. would try to stay closer to metro or Victoria harbour next time.

    Not really sure what there was to do here other than sleep and take a shower. Staff weren’t to welcoming on my arrival but were helpful throughout. No body here seemed very sociable at all.
