Hostel tour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUppLTTvECU&feature=c4-overview&list=UUFy7CZkpTlG6ZwZYHKqeMZg It was very strategically located. Close to most of the major attractions and very easy to get around. Pretty small but clean enough just to sleep in for the night. Overall a good experience if you're not too fussy. :) Will be returning to stay for the next trip!

I have stayed here in 2010 and I must say that they have really made improvements. There are new rooms located on the 9th floor! Pros: * Free slippers to use in the room and/or bathroom * Fresh towels everyday * They might not provide the same housekeeping as that of hotels but they see to it that your trash... More

I don't even know where to start with this hostel. There are many issues to get through. We had script problems from day one -- we couldn't find the thing. Granted; Hong Kong is a city of crazy alley ways and back passages, but to access this hostel, you had to delve down a side alley and up the world's... More

I would strongly advise against this hostel. We stayed in Causeway Bay at a MUCH better hostel during the first few days of our Hong Kong trip, and it was almost the same price. You can find something a lot nicer in this price range. Pros: -Inexpensive -Not too far from Jordan MTR station Cons: -Tiny, dingy room and bathroom... More

This place is situated in Nathan Road where shopping stores is just a walking distance. We even walked from the guest house to victoria harbour to avenue of the stars and back to the guesthouse. It's quite far but you wont notice how far it is because you've got to shop from one store to another and before you notice... More

First off, if you're not used to cheap accommodation, you won't have a good time. However, we really enjoyed our stay. The location was great on Nathan Road, between two MTR stations, near a market and lots of cheap eats. The building was a little rundown but who cares. One staff spoke English, the rest would call her and pass... More

The location is not good; while marketed as located by the Nathan street stop, it's actually a decent walk away. You can find lodgings for the same price and more centrally located at Chungking Mansion. Staff only speaks Cantonese and very limited Mandarin/English. Even though I made a reservation, they had over-booked. After walking a very long time, the staff... More

The room is pretty small as reviewed before (bathroom just fits one person to stand). However, i can get what i need for a short stay in HK. With a good location i.e. very near Jordan and Yau Ma Tei MRT, Temple Martket, a lot of shops outside, i will recommend this place to those looking for an affordable hostel... More

If you are looking for a place to sleep only then this hotel is ok. This is best for budget travellers. It is cheap and located on a great area. It is between Jordan and Yau ma tei mtr station. Only few minutes walk to any of these stations. The building has few little stores that stays up until 2am.... More

This is the smallest hostel out of all the ones I've ever stayed at. We chose this place because it had pretty good reviews at the time, but I was really surprised at the size and how rundown this place was, even for a cheap hostel in HK.
