Reviewed 23 September 2009

Pretty easy to find after getting off the airport bus and the staff were friendly and helpful. Room was very small but reasonably clean. The only major problem was the bed bugs!!! Good location near the metro and several local and western restaurants. Very safe with key cards and pin codes. Filtered water and bottled water available. Internet available in the lounge area via shared computer, or WiFi available 24/7 for free.

Our room was a double, very quiet with a window (looking out at a wall!!) but good air con. Not too bad at all!

4 of us planned a week's holiday in HK. We were very excited about this trip as it is our first experience staying in a HK hostel. The photos and reviews in the website looked good.

However, things turned out otherwise. When we reached the hostel, we registered at the main building and were led to another side of Continental Mansion. 4 of us with our luggage bags were brought to the 3rd floor. Our first shock was the size of the room. We stepped into the tiny room and 4 of us could not move. There was just sufficient standing space for 4 of us and our trolley bags. Our room had a double bed (Hk standard) and a double deck single. We organised ourselves and agreed that any extra items from shopping shall be shoved under our beds.

At night, the rooms have thin walls. Each time the next unit turns on the shower, we get a blast of noise. It happens thru the night which made us sleepless. In addition, it was a week of holiday making, neighbours return late one after another contributing to more noise.

The last thing which affected our stay was the constant smell of sewage oozing out from the floor trap in the bathroom. We could smell it from the main entrance of the hostel. It was so bad that we had to get our air refreshner to spray thru 6 days. 2 of us returned home falling sick.

Price is ok but noise and the bad smell is not acceptable. We stayed 6 days and there is no change in linen. Water in bottles are chargeable. We had to dispose our own garbage. Wi fi is free but not that stable. We had to pay for the room in cash upon check-in and thereafter, never seen anyone from the admin office checking if everything was ok. After checking out, we gave our feedback. Hostel confirmed that a broken pipe had caused the smell.

We feel that the good reviews in the hostel website need to be honest and updated. Reviews in the website date back 2005-2006. With this experience, we will not recommend this place to our friends and will not return for our next HK holiday.

I booked a single room, the room is a bit small but clean and with bathroom. The building is safe, you need security code to enter the building and to the unit. Wifi service is included. For the price they charge I consider it is good value in Hong Kong and I'll definitely come back next time.

Yesinn offers both budget hostel type accomidation or serviced studios. My studio was in a high rise building (16th floor). It was very small, clean, secure and basic. For the price - it was a good value in a very expensive city.

The room had a 3/4 bed, 2 feet of space beside the bed and a private bathroom (shower only). It did not provide soap, drinking water or towels, but they were available at a charge if required.

The location was excellent - the subway station was very close.

The hostel option has 6-8 bunk beds per room, very inexpensive.

I had a great time at the Yesinn hostel in HK. Although the hostel has no comon area (very small and noone is ever there) it was very easy to meet people of my dorm. The location is really good. Bus stops and metro stop right next to the door and lots of stores and cheap restaurants. Not too far away from the city center. I waled everyday.. a really nice walk that takes you through Vitoria Park.
All in all. a great expirence, I would stay there again.
