“Decent accommodation for budget travelers , but out of the way.”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

The hotel is very well designed and relatively well spaced compared to chicken coop like homes in HK.

The rooms are comfortable with in room safes. However, please don't ever eat the breakfast as it is simply bread and butter( planta spread) or just plain congee . If you ask for more hearty meal, their answers are that of us how hk people eat their meals.. I think they are merely insulting the eating habits of hk residences . It will be much better if residences eat at the adjoining shopping mall where fir $30hk , you get a filling, traditional hK meal

Basic hotel fir basic use only.

Dear Mel7155,

Thank you very much for sharing your comment on Tripadvisor. It is through feedback such as yours that we are able to improve ourselves and strive for the best performance. Regarding current breakfast arrangement at the Common Zone, our aim is to provide a bit extra to our in house guests since Iconic Bar on the same floor is under renovation. This service is absolutely free of charge with limited service hours in case our guests prefer staying inside than outside for a quick breakfast. Furthermore, this service will be suspended till the re-opening of Iconic Bar. We believe the new Iconic Bar will provide more varieties to the hostel guests to meet their needs.

Once again, thank you for staying with us and we look forward to welcome you back to Y Loft the coming future.

Yours sincerely
Jenny Ng

This Loft/hostel is so much better than some 3 to 4 star hotels I've stayed in Hong Kong. Conveniently located next to Chai Wan station, it is only 20 mins away from Causeway Bay. Lots of hidden Gems within the centre. Great meeting facilities, entertainment and art events downstairs, an wonderful exhibition area. Coin laundry is available. A famous Italian restaurant downstairs. Surrounding the venue are lots of cheap restaurants serving hearty Hong Kong style cuisine and lots of neighborhood stores.

I stayed her for 7 days during the Amplify Asia conference , I love the ambience of my room , it has a good view of the MTR and the buildings. The rooms are modern , it has a flat tv, cozy atmosphere and the bathroom is state of the art. The only problem is navigating through the building because the hostel is integrated with the different school facilities and conference room. I actually got lost one time when I can't find the elevator which serves you directly to your room. every room has a fridge and electric kettle for your coffee or tea.

Room Tip: choose the room that faces the MTR it has the best view

Stayed 4 nights to cut travel costs slightly as HK rooms in Centre show exorbitant prices. Y-Loft occupies 12. - 14th floor of a new building. To MTR Chai Wan Station by footbridge 5 min, shops , resto nearby. Occupied a clean room w/ balcony. Indoor bathroom, quite dark and moisture due to missing window. WIFI fast. Will stay again.

Y-loft has a great atmosphere with a really helpful staff! Although it's location is a little far from most places we had to go it is located next to a great subway station and shopping center so you'll have to account for travel time in most cases but i think it was worth it. The staff was amazing, most of us were English speakers in China for the first time, they were able to answer all of our questions and even lent out electrical convertors to those that needed one. The atmosphere in general is great, I met a lot of fellow travelers one night that we were all sitting in the lobby relaxing. The rooms are really spacious and modern, wi-fi is also available in every area of the building.

Non-flexible administration. We were charged 113 CAD as a penalty for canceling our reservation 36 hours in advance after we found out at the airport that there was a way around to get our Chinese visa at HK airport on the Saturday we flew in. A very similar situation happened to us in Shanghai and the hotel was very helpful. We just found 113$ to be quite an expensive penalty for not even staying there.

Stayed here during the end of May 2013. Incredible find and will definitely come back to Y-Loft for my future visits to Hong Kong. Rooms are very spacious, staffs are courteous and thorough with their services. At this price, this is hard to beat.

It is not right at the main shopping malls, but it is steps away from the Chai Wan MTR station. Since it is the terminal station means you can a seat every time, which is rare.
