From the minute you arrive at Wang Fat Hostel you know you're in for a special stay (if you decide to stay). Just take a look at the door and you know you're paying for a prison sentence.
I was shown to a tiny room without a window, and when I complained about this, the guy seemed surprised that I wanted a window. What else? Should I also ask for a floor and a ceiling? I thought windows were standard anywhere in the world (with the possible exception of prisons).
I was then shown to a room (after a very long wait) that had a window, but was also small, hot and uncomfortable, and the bed dirty. I found two cockroaches in my room. The window opened onto a yard thing and there was a terrible crying sound all day and night, I still don't know if it was a child or an animal, but it was unbearable. Despite bad jet lague I left first thing in the morning to go somewhere else. I didn't get the money back I had paid for two further nights' stay and I'm still angry about that. I hope this hostel closes down and the owners lose their business. Stay somewhere else when in Hong Kong.
