Cheapest on booking.com! Really small private room without window and loud air conditioning. A bit hard to find! The toilet and shower are installed at the same place, but we were told thats quite normal for HK! There's not always english speaking staff at reception, so we had to wait for a long time and came back again. We had... More

Hong Kong is notoriously fickle with hostel prices, especially weekends. Golden Island came in as a useful stop-gap a couple of times when other places were full or overpriced. Jessie the owner is reasonably friendly, if not especially attentive. Vicky her assistant likewise. There is a scattiness apparent re access to dorms (e.g. never offered a key & had to... More

I would like to give a thumbs up for this accommodation. Centrally located in the heart of Tsim Tsa Tsui. Fit for budget travelers. Jessie the receptionist was very polite and was very helpful in all our needs especially how to find good deals in HK.

This is a pretty basic place but it has everything that you need. The main lady is really friendly and helpful. I did not love the fact that you have a shower exactly where the loo is but that is not a big deal. Reasonable cost and it is in a great location.

Small, but clean room with bath and AC, friendly stuff, price very reasonable. A little noisy and quite thin walls, but it is worth really staying here. Compared to other guesthouses that have a lot of doubtful "businessmen" that are stayng at the entrance offering you cheap and fake goods... Great location, subway station Yau Ma Tei very near, from... More

Very expensive for what you get. The hot water went out after 5 minutes of use which was highly annoying if there are 2 of you. We was woken up every morning by sounds of drilling from the floor below or by the people next door as the walls are paper thin and you can hear every slight sound. Both... More

For us this was one stop of many and we wanted somewhere fairly cheap. The rooms are fairly small but it's not really a problem if you're only wanting somewhere to sleep. Our room had decent air con and there is free wifi available. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and the location is nice and central... More

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
