Location is very strategic, close to the Ladies Market, Fa Yuen Market and the MRT. Many street foods around so eating will not be a problem. Room is clean albeit small. But it's OK for us Only downside is the long elevator queue sometimes, but I guess that is always a problem in the crowded HK

Me and my boyfriend booked a private room for one day/night layover. And we were definitely surprised about how small the room was. Three sides of the bed were literally touching the walls and there was barely enough room for our large backpacks. We figured we would just walk around for most of the day enough that we would be...

The room had just about enough space for a bed and our two rucksacks to be standing upright. After we'd unpacked a few items the floor space was gone! The bathroom is also uncomfortably small. Day to day, the housekeeping did not replace our towels, but just put the same dirty ones back on the bed which was a bit... More

Stayed here since 3 days ago and a few more days to go. Thank you Fiona and staff for helping my very early check in request at 10am. Was so tired after arriving in HK in the early morning and my children needed to sleep. It is amazing. A 5 star hotel will not let u check in at 10am... More

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

During our backpacking-tour trough Asia we stayed for 4 nights in the Ah Shan Hostel. The Hostel is located close to the metro station " Mong Kok" from which you can reach all sights. 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

There are only two things not bad in this hostel: the location and the wifi. The hostel is really hard to find and the rooms are very small and basic. 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
