Right in the heart of Kowloon but it is easy to miss as the entrance to this hostel is through an unassuming doorway to a high rise. The room was quite small, of course, but this is to be expected in Hong Kong and my son, who is 6 feet and I shared it comfortably and easily It was spotless.... More

The entrance is very small and nondescript. When coming from Mong Kok metro station it is on the left of a mobile shop and adverse there... More

We stayed here for three nights and didnt have hot water during the stay. There is also only one elevator, you get 1 towel for free during the stay, only... More

Hostel is located strategically. It is very the near the MTR (Just one block away) and a lot of street food in it's area. 7 Eleven is right on front. Sneaker Street and Ladies Street is just across. Room is well maintained. Not your dream hotel but it is very decent and clean. Friendly staff too.

We have stay there for three time with two kids. Very convenience location, clean and good wifi. There is mtr, mini bus nearby that goes most of the place of interest. Highly recommended if looking for budget hotel. Small room and need to be patient waiting for lift.

Room small but very clean. Attention this hotel is inside a building and therefore no signage outside, we found the hotel by searching his name on mailboxes of the building. So many take the address 83 rue argyle street.attention the 83's behind!
