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

    This hostel is kind of far way from the main city centre but you don't even notice due to the amazing transportation system in Hong Kong. Facilities are clean, staff are extremely helpful and the beds are comfortable.

    Friendly staff. The hostel was right by a bus stop so we could get around pretty easily and also there is a seven eleven right next door for anything you need. All the facilities seemed very nice, maybe a locker would be good aswell to put away larger items but overall the safe was fine.

    It was a nice place. Socializing wasn’t great ass the common area is quite small. Not walking distance to much but easy bus or metro away. AC was great and beds were comfy and private.

    The hostel was great, not in the center, but with the buses you can get anywhere easily. The hostel, especially the rooms and bathrooms was crystal clean, and you have a room in a room felleing with the privacy curtain at the bed. I can definitely recommend it.

    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!

    Nice place to serve as your (alternative) base for exploring HK. will provide a clean (but a bit steely) mattress and adequately clean showers/bathrooms. Provides you with any convenience you might require, friendly and very knowledgeable staff. I really loved the location in To Kwa Wan (Kowloon Bay + ferry peer to North Point; Lttl Thailand + walled city just around the corner and it's only 20 min to Mong Kok/Tsim Sha Tsui and the airport . Nice restaurants, conv stores + supermarkets around.

    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.

    Location was not the best but we went in knowing this. Clean and nice rooms. When the ac turned off it was too hot to be in the room. Lots of bus routes. Staff were helpful and lounge was nice. It’s a bit of a sketchy alley to get in through the stairs

    The place was relatively clean other than a cockroach we caught on the first day in the room. Everything else was superb. The common toilets were cleaned daily, the rooms and beds were clean as well. The hair dryer in the toilet was such a life saver. However, not much socialising going on between staff and residents and also amongst residents. If you want to party whilst in HongKong, I wouldn't recommend you to stay here as it is a little far from the party places like in Lan Kwai Fong.

    Very Good

    06 Aug 2019
    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.
