I only booked a room in Hong Kong Tai Wan Hotel because I was challenging myself to have budget trip to Hong Kong and Macau since I want to do the bungy jump in o Macau and go to the theme parks. I was looking for a cheap room in Hong Kong. A friend told me to book a room... More

Awful, awful place, for these reasons: - Management pictures on here are totally unrepresentative of the rooms - believe me, they are of another hotel! - Tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny rooms - Described as a family room for 5, we got 2 single beds and a camp bed. The single beds were for 2 people each. - There was ZERO... More

This is far from a traditional hostel, located in a building on Nathan Road in downtown Kowloon it is the definition of the HONG KONG living situation. The rooms may say 1 or 2 beds but resemble more of what your closet would be in the western world just add a bathroom and maybe if your lucky a window facing... More

I expected the sheets to be dirty and ripped (they were). I expected to have bugs and cockroaches crawling through my room (there were). I expected a bedroom that looked like a bathroom but had a view like something out of the movie like Brazil or Akira (it was). I expected the clerk's attitude to range from an extreme indifference...

The Chinese manager is horrible. His English is horrible but that is not the worst part. He treats you terrible. If you go the the reception area late at night he don't even open the curtain to talk to you. First he says they are closed but since we had an important thing to say he did talk to me... More

I have never stayed in such a terrible place. The woman on reception has zero skills in politeness, kindness and handling customers. She (the main staff member I dealt with) only cares about one thing, taking money from people and doesn't give a damn about their stay or comfort. Amongst a number of other things that were offensive and totally... More
