We were booked for this hotel last December 2014 but suddenly due to communication problem, the old lady ( i presumed she was the owner) did not allow us to check-in on the dates we booked it because it turned out that she did not understand what we were saying. She thought we didn't like to pursue our booking but... More

Dear Sir/Madam, We do not agree the situation as described by the guest given to you. The guest arrived on that day two times. In the first time, she just showed us a printed voucher and told us that she has made a reservation for a triple room but want to downgrade to double room and get the refund of... More

It was our first time to HKG so l'm glad we found this hostel after much debating. We stayed here for 5 nights. Staff were friendly as we initially book 5 nights for 2 person but at the last minute another friend joined us so we emailed to the hostel and they gladly changed our booking. Upon arrival we paid...

I stay for 6 days in here. The room is small, and bathroom is very small. But the room is clean, AC and water heater working well. The building is very near to MTR Mongkok exit D2,, and just accross the street is ladies market. Overall, i enjoy my stay here.

We were given a newly built room (2 double beds) with aircon and tv (as requested). Soap, shampoo and towels are free. It was clean and decent enough to have as bedroom for 5 days and 4 nights. We were at the 14th floor so the noise from the streets are not a problem. Its a value for money.

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

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
