“Strongly Recommend!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2010

I'm from Singapore and had lived in Shanghai for close to 6 years, relocated to Hong Kong in October 2009.

I was looking for a temporary accommodation before I decide on a permanent apartment to rent in HK. Hence, I chose to stay at Yesinnspace (Mongkok, Anchor Street) from 29 October 2009 to 12 January 2010, having read very good online reviews that they had decent rooms, convenient location, and very helpful staff.

True to the review, the staff at Yesinnspace have been extremely helpful and friendly during my extended stay there (when changing rooms, payment arrangements, requiring extra bed for minimal charges, forgot keys, etc).

Location is very good. About 6 minutes walk to Mongkok Station, 10 minutes to Mongkok East Station, 6 minutes walk to Olympic Station. Note that these 3 stations are on different MTR lines, so that will literally get you to most "must-see", "must-go" locations in HK for both leisure or work. If you're adventurous, there are also alot of shuttle bus and KMB bus services which gets you to everywhere.

The rooms are small, but has everything you need. Cosy and comfortable environment. Quiet at night.

Strongly recommend and book early. Enjoy your stay.

Cheers,
Edmund

Last November 2009, I was in Hong Kong with some friends. We chose to stay at Yesinn Hostel because it's not that expensive. It turned out that we really got a great bargain staying here because it's not only affordable, it's just opposite the train station and just near bus stops which makes our travel to places we want to visit (Disneyland, Avenue of Stars, etc.) comfortable. Around the area are a number of food stall or fast food chains that you can eat at. I will definitely recommend this to others specially for groups who wants to stay in just a room since they got rooms for 6 or more people.

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.
