Have just returned from staying 3 nights. I was at first sceptical about staying at the hotel but I was impressed with the overall service and consider it was good value for money. The room was small, but as I only used it for sleeping in it was fine. Just a few points to make:- No tea/coffee making facilities but... More

Mixed feelings about the YMCA International House. We normally stay at the Salisbury Y, but this was Hong Kong Rugby Sevens weekend so the Salisbury & just about everywhere else was full. International House had a room & sounded Ok for 2 nights so we booked it. Check in was great - arrived early evening and they'd filled the room... More

I was really nicely surprised by this property, beening the YMCA i thought it was going to be budget accommodation however this was not the case at all, it was the same standard as any other Hong Kong Hotel. The room was modern and clean, the hotel is in a good locaton (up at the further end of Nathan Rd)... More

I recently spent 10 days at this hotel and i would highly recommend it as a budget hotel. I had a flat screen TV, the room was very clean, anything I needed was brought to me promptly. I stayed in the tower on the 21st floor as the local fire department and ambulance service is across the street, I avoided... More

I stayed at YMCA Intl House in early Jan 2008 for 4 nights. This being my first trip to Hong Kong, I didn't have an inkling what exactly to look out for in arranging for my accomodation there. So I decided on YMCA Intl House since it was one of my travel agent's strong recommendation and most importantly, was within... More

Ugh - we stayed here for 2 days booked through a travel agency on a tour. We had stayed at Gold Coast for one night, but they were booked up and had to move to the YMCA. Which was one step above a hostel, in my opinion. I saw the pictures on Expedia and our room did NOT look like... More

We stayed at the YMCA International, as we weren't looking to spend too much on accomodation, therefore the reasonable prices suited us. The hotel itself is average in every way, and ideal if you're just looking to stay for a few nights. The facilities in general are very basic - a restaurant, breakfast bar and an indoor swimming pool. Staff... More

the location is good and the staff are very friendly. the room is comfortable and clean. the airport express shuttle drops there (K6 shuttle bus). the tv should have offered more cable tv channels though. will definitely consider staying there again.

We stayed in the Tower Wing for 5 nights in November 2007. If this hotel suits your budget I would recommend it simply for its fantastic location, excellent staff and spacious (by HK standards) rooms. It is metres from Yau Mah Tei MTR station and bus stops (on Nathan Rd) for busess heading to the ferry terminal. The Airport Express... More
