Overall the "Hostel" if you can call it that was okay. I would call it more like an inexpensive hotel.
I stayed in a double room for three nights. The mattress on the bed was extremely hard and not entirely comfortable.
The staff are friendly though very very rule orientated. An example is that on the third day I asked if it was possible to swap my towel for another as I had dropped it and it had gotten dirty. I was told that I had the option to purchase a new towel or rent a towel for a daily fee. Overall not a great experience.
The included breakfast was okay, nothing special but it meant not starting the day on an empty stomach.
One of our biggest gripes was the shower, it would go from perfectly pleasant to scolding hot and then back again without notice, on more than one occasion I had to jump out of the shower to avoid being burnt.
Only a short walk to the MTR and half hour or so from most attractions. Overall it is pretty good however was I to stay in Hong Kong again I would likely not stay here again. It didn't have the hostel feel that I have experienced elsewhere around the world. As mentioned before it was more like a cheap hotel and the atmosphere was very sterile.
