“Decent place!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

I had an awkward 12 hour layover in Hong Kong (7pm to 7am) and didn't want to attempt sleeping in airport chairs so I stayed here. As others have said the outside looks sketchy, but it's lovely inside. The lack of a true common area does mean people congregate in the hallway until one am, but it is a hostel so, to some degree, that's expected. Overall it was super convenient, clean, and comfortable.

The hostel is clean and the staff is friendly. The rooms are smaller than usual even for hostels but comfy enough to crash after walking around town all day long.

Prices per night are a bit high but that should be expected from a place like Hong Kong.

The hostel overall is clean, beds are comfortable, wifi is superb, dorms not too big, lockers (small), however:
- The curtains don't block the daylight, so as a light sleeper, I'm waken up by light at sunrise
- The hostel is distributed over at least three apartments (in a building that looks a bit dodgy from the outside)
- The distribution means there's no real common area, and as others mentioned, people gather just outside the room for conversations, sometimes till well after midnight
- Showers are cramped
- Three showers, two toilets (one each is a combined room), wasn't a problem while I was there, but could create queues when the hostel is fully booked.

Overall, the stay felt more like in a hotel with dorm and shared bathrooms than a hostel. Almost for sure not the best in Hong Kong, especially considering the price.

The hostel overall was good. It was clean, location was excellent and staff were accommodating with good English skills.
However, I was ready to leave after 4nights. I may have been unlucky with the people who were at the hostel the same time, but I got hardly any sleep because people were very loud till late at night (about midnight/1am) and then again when they came back from partying (4am-5am). Like I said, I could have just been unlucky with timing, but because the hostel is so small, there is nowhere for people who want to drink and party to go. They simply sit in the little area outside the bedrooms so that's why I got very little cheap. The rooms are quite small and there is only two toilets with a shower head (basically a wet room) so most of the time there is a queue.
The hostel is in a good location though, so maybe it just has to be accepted that the place is small. If you're out all day anyway, it doesn't really matter.
If I had the choice to stay here again, I'm not sure if I would, simply due to noise and lack of sleep.

This place is great. Beds are comfy, everything is clean, and the wifi is great. Staff is friendly and helpful. Metro is close by and there are a lot of restaurants nearby. The building seems very safe - guard at entrance, code to get in. Easy to find, you just have to know it's in an apartment building.
Highly recommended.

Wifi is fast,room is clean,location is good,friendly staff and people. Just.. the place is small. But it's ok,if you don't stay at the room for whole time. I think it is a cool hostel for people,who travel lot or come to HK for a bit.

I've stayed in two different hostels in HK and this was the better one. Staff was great although socialisation is so-so, beds were comfortable. There's many small restaurants within a short walk from the hostel. The only drawback is that there are two shower-toliet combo bathrooms, so it could be quite wet sometimes. Also for HK$200 a dorm bed, its price is on par with hostels in the west but it's not that much value for money. Having said this, this is hong kong and everything is the same.

Room Tip: No aircon in the common room when the temperature was 30c and humidity over 90%. If you want to chil...
