I stayed here for three nights in January 14. The guy who runs it is brilliant and really helpful, he genuinely wants you to get the most out of your time there. There's free drinking water and pin code entrance which is good. Location is perfect, right next to the metro station. Down sides are the beds are up high and no ladders to climb (needing the toilet in the night is not good). It's also very small and cramped. The toilets and showers are clean but just so so small. I'd recommend it if you're only there a couple of nights.

Me and a friend stayed here for 3 nights while viseting Hong Kong. It is in a great location close to the metro and ferry station and it is a great area of town to walk around.

The place is pretty small but very fresh and has a nice atmosphare to it.
We met alot of nice people here and ended up spending alot of time with them during our visit. Also the staff is super nice and often takes the guests out to eat at some local restaurant or other fun activeties.

I would defentetly recomend you to stay here if you want a nice cheap hostel and get great friendly service to make the most of your days in HK.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled with friends

Good: not a bad location, comfortable bed, clean

Bad: bed was the top bunk, had to climb up tiny stairs to reach which was uncomfortable. And sometimes other guests left their belongings on the stairs blocking my path. Everyone wasn't so friendly, even had other guests move my belongings to other places in the room to make room for their own bags. The room was just so cluttered - maybe the hotel could improve by having a shoe rack for example. This made it the most unpleasant hostel stay I've ever had

Spent 3 nights in this hostel during a brief visa trip from the mainland. It's located right at the south of Kowloon, 30 seconds walk from Tsim Sha Tsui station, so very easy to get to by metro from the mainland border and very easy to get to Causeway Bay and the other tourist sights.

The hostel had recently opened so all the facilities were modern and clean. The dorms beds all had electric sockets, lockers, reading lamps and curtains for privacy. The staff were also very polite and helpful.

Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for quality low budget accommodation.

Friendly staff, ideal location.

Considering how small it is (3 dorms, sleeping between 20-30 people) it's not too cramped. Sometimes noisy given the close quarters. Rooms and bathroom very good.

Probably the best available in HK without paying a fortune for a hotel.

Great Hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are small (Hong Kong Style...) but the lobby is great to meet people and hang out.
The location is perfect (right in front of the airport bus station and 2 minutes walk to the metro) and the bathrooms are small but clean.
I really hope to be back!
