“Very nice for the budget traveler”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

I enjoyed my 4 nights here. The location was central to the subway, buses, ferry, shopping and local restaurants. The room was safe, clean and the bed was comfortable. It is located on Nathan Road which is one of the main north/south roads in Kowloon. It was very easy to get here by bus from the airport and Karen gave great directions on which bus to take and where to get off. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Hong Kong.

The room is smaller than expected but no complaints about the location (possible to walk to TST) and cleanliness. Karen was extremely flexible in allowing me to use the room until 4pm despite the check-out time at noon because there were no guests reserving the room after me. And this was much appreciated! The only con (or pro depending on how you see it) is that the night guard locks the main gate after midnight so you have to wake him to get through to the lift.

The hostel is located in the heart of the city, close to the main attractions and the party scene. You have easy access to the public transportation. Subway station is just across the hostel. A bit small but I had a clean room with fast wifi. I would recommend for a short-stay.

It is kinda new hostel/hotel, so its pretty much still clean. Easy access from Jordan MTR (10 meters away). Breadtalk (bakery), MacDonalds, 7-Eleven, Watsons (Similar to Boots, Guardian, etc) are easily found just 10-20 meters away from the hotel. A 15-minute walk to Tsim Tsa Tsui area...probably more as there are so many shops along the way. Yes, the room (including the bed) and toilet/bathroom are small for European/Americans standards BUT its pretty sufficient for Asian i guess unless you are 6ft tall or big/huge.

Room Tip: Probably room with window but most room facing the back alley.

A good and clean hostel choice for those traveller on budget. Just a walking distance from Jordan Station. If you like walking and enjoying exploring cities, you can just walk from the hostel down to Tsim Sha Tsui and end up at the Avenue of Stars and soak up the sunset there.

The hostel complete with air-conditioning and wifi for those gadget freak and must connect to the world :)

Do expect quite a compact room but cozy environment.

Reviewed 21 October 2013

We were a little hesitant at first when we booked a room here since it was fairly new. We relied on the pictures and hoped that it was as good as it looked. We arrived early and they allowed us to leave our bags in the reception area. Once we checked in, the room was surprisingly smaller than we had expected. But it was okay. Room was clean and very comfortable. Bathroom was small too but it was not unpleasant. We got worried about the sockets but then they provide adapters so we had no problems charging our mobile phones and cameras. Everything you need is there in the room already (except maybe for utensils) :)

Place is near Jordan station and very easy to find. Watsons and Breadtalk are just a few steps away which is very convenient. There is also a 7-11 store at the C2 exit. You can also go to the Night Market without riding the MTR.

One thing I did not like is that they don't have a lot of fastfood chains around. They do have restaurants. Cameron St (where we stayed before) had McDonald's, KFC and Yoshinoya. Also, elevator was small and can only hold 4 people.

Best thing about the place is the people here. They are very accommodating and friendly. We felt safe in the area since they have a security guard at the entrance and a keycard is needed before you can enter.

To sum it all up, we did not regret staying in this hostel. I would also recommend this place to my friends and family. :)
