Was excited to be booked in here, but received an email saying no longer available, As a couple we were offered a dorm room.. with a curtain.. instead... certainly not a compromise. I shall not be staying there in future.

We all lived far away from the bus terminal so decided to stay close to the terminal as we were leaving very early in the morning. The inn itself is fantastic! I have lived in Korea... More

When we had anyone question she always was glad to help us. Second, not only I can get good food and sleep at Hongstay, but also could experience... More

My friends and I, a total of 5 people from Hong Kong, stayed at HONGstay for 8 nights. The place is very convenient, although the surrounding is quite quiet, but once you walk to the other exit of the same subway station, it is like a whole new world. So for us to buy some snacks or to go out... More
