“Trendy hostel in the cultural hart op Hong Kong”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

For a hostel it's pretty expensive and luxurious, it looks more like a hotel to me. But a plus that it is located in a old part of Hong Kong, full of culture and good local food. The hostel is quite new, the rooms and the cafe look sharp and trendy. If you are a culture/history geek visit the small museum of the hostel and download the a new app that also tells something about the area (and the rest of Hong Kong): http://urbandiscovery.asia/cultural-experiences/app-2/

What a fantastic place to stay. The room was clean, modern and comfortable. The complimentary breakfasts were tasty and filling. Service was top notch. We were a short walk from the subway in an area that has a ton of great food options and a park n shop grocery nearby.

Compared to other places we looked at, this place was a steal. We will DEFINITELY be staying here next time we're in town.

I was impressed by the security and cleanliness. The restaurant is unique and the decor interesting. There is a neat little gift shop too. The services are convenient for backpackers (laundry, wifi for purchase, breakfast included). Quite costly for a private room, but I think all of Hong Kong is this way.

3 nights stay in a double room during end of Mar 2014, much more than a hostel, more like a comfortable no-frills hotel. Luxurious room size, comfortable, very clean and good sleep quality. We love the location of the hostel, lots of local food, local culture, wholesale toys, clothing, electronics etc… A unique cafe on L1 with Good breakfast. More importantly, very friendly Hostel staff.

Positives: (a) Good location (5 min walk from Sham Shui Po MTR/Subway) + large and clean rooms. (b) Recently renovated. (c) Includes breakfast.

Negatives: (a) Staff will not show you dorm room; pay for room first and then see (b) wifi is HK $25 per day (c) Dorm room has lockers but locks are unconventional and weird. Buy lock on your own and it may or may not fit (d) No towels provided. Hostel will "rent" you towel for HK$10 (e) English to american electrical outlet converter required. Hostel will sell you converter for HK $20 (f) shower drain slow in dorm room

So be prepared to be nickeled and dimed. Then again large room for Hong Kong

Hi it's Damian here,

Thank you for your review of our hostel, we value your feedback. As we are a hostel rather than hotel, in order to help keep our room rates low, we don't provide towels in our dorm rooms, however in the private rooms towels are provided. With regards to the internet, we are now currently working on making some free wifi zones in the hostel as part of improvement and we hope to have this ready soon. For the maintenance problems with locker, I will ask our engineering department to investigate this for us.

Thank you for providing us your feedback and giving us the opportunity to improve.

We hope to welcome you back to stay with us next time you visit Hong Kong

Pros:
1. Within 5 minutes walk from Sham Shui Po Station. Therefore, you can find good dessert shops and food within walking distance.
2. The room is huge compared to HK standard, especially with this price. Big bathroom too.
3. Quiet, comfy bed
4. Free breakfast from internal HK style café shop
5. The room is clean and they even have hairdryer

Cons (to some):
1. No dental kit available. But due to its location, easy to get one from any convenience store
2. Towel change at every 3rd day
3. Upon check-out, you need to bring down the pillow case, duvet, and bedsheet cover, dump them in a big container for cleaning.

As there's no problem for the Cons for me, this YHA will become my 'home' when i'm in HK.

Excellent facility. Well appointed room and bath (We took a double room). Efficient, enthusiastic staff and team.Great atmosphere at the 'fullcupcafe' for breakfast or day dining. Very close to the MTR Sham Shui Po Station Exit D2. Just walk out in the exact same direction you exit, up the road for about 300 metres, past two cross-streets...up a slight incline... and you come to a cross-roads junction to your left. Diagonally across, on your left, is MHH, clearly visible. Very easy to get to, via MTR.

Room Tip: Any room would be terrific, frankly. But for details, ours faced East, which had a small Public work...
