“Good budget choice in an off the track location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

This is a small, clean and friendly hostel in Kowloon Tong, an area known to locals for its low rise homes and wealthy residents - who included film star Bruce Lee. Away from the main hotspots of the territory the area nevertheless has some fascinating sights including Yau Yat Chuen, the Bird Market and the Flower Market all within a few minutes walk. Access to downtown is most easily gained by the number 104 bus next to the hotel and which runs an express service to Wanchai and Central.

Rooms are clean and cable internet is free. The cafe is worth a particular mention as it offers what must be some of the best value meals in the city with soup and main dish combos a delicious bargain at around $US5. Nearby on Boundary Road two gas stations contain convenience stores for snacks and drinks while nearby Prince Edward Road ( with the MTR) offers dozens of local eating and shopping opportunities. A different side of Hong Kong with a more local flvour and well worth trying out.

Room is clean. Bed OK. location is bad - no convenience shop of any size. 15-20 min walk to MTR station. Rooms are so noisy because of speeding traffic just outside. Front desk people don't know how to smile. None know any directions to buses. Cafe staff have poor manners.
Room cleanup staff are nice.Whole room has only one electrical outlet - they loaned us an adapted.The room is so small with a mini sized desk.. Spoiled my trip. Should have paid more for a better room and location. A waste of money here.

October 2011

Just came back.

Likes: Breakfast included. May be viewed as 'limited portions'. It was OK for me as I'm not a big eater at breakfast. Better to have the convenience of breakfast being served in the same building than having to walk 10 minutes to the nearest McDonalds. (McDonalds located in the Mong Kok East Station. Please note ,it is the Mong Kok EAST station)
- yes, there is internet in the room, ask for cable
- Reception staff was helpful
- Bed was quite comfortable
- Bus routes located directly in front of building and the next street behind
- getting to tourist sites, not a big problem,as the bus routes and MTR are accessible.
- take dirty laundry to Cleaners (mere half block away) Inexpensive. Not Self Serve.
- Reasonable room rates
- room cleaned everyday
- non smoking rooms available
- 20% off for lunch and dinner
- Chinese newspaper delivered daily

Dislikes
- have to walk 10 minutes to nearest MTR
- Coffee served with breakfast is from instant coffee grounds (not brewed like in restaurants)
- needs renovation. Very much still a 60s to 70s decor inside
- bathroom is a bit small but is adequate depending on your needs
- only one outlet visible in room, none found in bathroom
- noisy air con
- TAXIs not very willing to take us back from Monk Kok shopping district.
But costs about $20- - 25 HK)

-

Room Tip: Non smoking rooms available. Familiarize yourself with the bus routes.
