“Worst service ever.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

From the airport in Vietnam we called Bradbury Jockey Club Youth Hostel to let them know that our plane from Vietnam to Hong Kong was two hours delayed, so we would arrive in HK 1 o'clock instead. They told us that it was no problem.
1 o'clock at night we arrive at the hostel (in the middle of nowhere!) and the gate was closed. Two telephone numbers were written on the gate - they didn't answer...
So we had to sleep outside (it was cooold!) with lots of cats around us.
The next morning the staff arrived - we asked to get our money back for the first night (the night we had spent outside the hostel) but no! Instead we where charged for a membership card each which made the stay very expensive...
Everyday between 10:00-16:00 they close the hostel because they have to clean (didn't seem that clean). It's a very long time!
Far from supermarkets, not many restaurants around.

To say something good... the area around the hostel is very cosy; grill area, boats, forrest, lots of walking tracks.

The Bradbury Jockey Club Youth Hostel - What a contrast compared to the hustling and bustling area of central Hong Kong! The YH is located next to the Plover Cove reservoir, a large dring water reservoir in the NT (New Territories). It can be reached by public transport, as follows: Take the KCR East Rail line towards Lo Wu or Lok Ma Chau, get off at Tai Po Market, hop on the 20C minibus, and ride it all the way to the end. Then walk along the "beach" (ocean to your right) for 200m. The YH offers dorm beds at HK$85. The sanitary facilities would need some refreshing work, otherwise the place is just fine. Kenny is a very friendly and helpful staff.
