“Tiny, dirty and full of small flies. Overpriced for what you get.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

The place doesn't look like a hostel or guesthouse, I think it is somebody' s place that's just announced as a hostel but I doubt they have a license or similar. I stayed in a single ensuite that was smelly, dirty (hair, dust, dead flies), didn't have a window, and was full of small flies, they were all over!! The toilet didn't flush, there was a bucket to be filled with water to clean it...
The lady in reception was nice, didn't speak much english so it was a bit difficult to communicate with her, air conditioning worked fine and wifi too. Good location in mong kok.

Almost opposite Mong Kok East station and only a little further from Mong Kok MTR the location of Ka Wut Villa is pretty good for Kowloon/Hong Kong or the quickest route into mainland China.

Only signposted by a tiny nameplate on the front doorbell, Ka Wut isn't easy to spot on the second floor of Hung Tak Building.

The room was miniature though managed to squeeze in a Hong Kong style half-sized double bed which touched three walls and an 'ensuite'. There was barely sufficient remaining floor space to open a small suitcase or turn the page of a paperback. Ensuite was a tiny wetroom of the sort where the shower is virtually over the toilet and the handbasin would have been adequate for only the smallest of guests. Towels, minimum toiletries, and a TV were supplied along with quiet and modern airconditioning.

Fine for a one night stopover if you just need a bed, and luggage could be left for an additional 30HKD. Certainly nothing special and probably overpriced. Close proximity to the Chinese border via the East Rail MTR Line (at Mong Kok East) is the main attraction.
