“Not a bad place to stay in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2010

Stayed in just one night on the Kowloon side Yesinn, my friends stayed for longer. I was in a single room and if I remember correctly - payed 450

Its considered a hostel, and to my opinion , so far the best hostel in HK that I've been to

The rooms arent enourmous, but a little bit bigger if you compare them with the other places. Its pretty clean inside, and you already have a lot of things inside - tv, mugs, wine glasses, cooking stuff (but nowhere to cook) and the aircon worked ok.
The bathrooms arent bad as well, relatively (hostel) spacious, the shower worked fine, but the water heated tank was pretty small, so you could only have a hot shower for about 5 min - then it switched to warm,,and then cold
I guess its not really comfortable for people with long hair,, but its not my case)
I stayed in January - so its was a little bit chilly in the room
The staff was helpful and friendly,,and their "lobby" was decorated pretty cute..
Wifi worked great, didnt have any problems with it at all

But they dont give you tooth brushes, toothpaste, slippers and towels ,,,so I guess you have to bring them with you
And its not close to the MTR,,,its a 7-10 min walk to Mongkok station or Olympic
Most of the hostels on HK island are right next to the MTR exits,,but those rooms are a lot worse though..


All in all to make a conclusion - a great and cheap place to stay in, I really enjoyed staying in it,,,, despite the minor minuses that any hostel will have plenty of

This hostel will make you feel like stay at home. You will not disturb by the busy traffic as what you experiences you stay in town hotel. Moreover, I can assure you where your children will able to sleep well.
Perhaps, many people comments the room is too small. Actually, I do agree but why you need the big room when you only pay the small money for it.
The room is clean and maintain by the warm heart team.
I have wonderful stay there for 4 nights.

I'm from Singapore and had lived in Shanghai for close to 6 years, relocated to Hong Kong in October 2009.

I was looking for a temporary accommodation before I decide on a permanent apartment to rent in HK. Hence, I chose to stay at Yesinnspace (Mongkok, Anchor Street) from 29 October 2009 to 12 January 2010, having read very good online reviews that they had decent rooms, convenient location, and very helpful staff.

True to the review, the staff at Yesinnspace have been extremely helpful and friendly during my extended stay there (when changing rooms, payment arrangements, requiring extra bed for minimal charges, forgot keys, etc).

Location is very good. About 6 minutes walk to Mongkok Station, 10 minutes to Mongkok East Station, 6 minutes walk to Olympic Station. Note that these 3 stations are on different MTR lines, so that will literally get you to most "must-see", "must-go" locations in HK for both leisure or work. If you're adventurous, there are also alot of shuttle bus and KMB bus services which gets you to everywhere.

The rooms are small, but has everything you need. Cosy and comfortable environment. Quiet at night.

Strongly recommend and book early. Enjoy your stay.

Cheers,
Edmund

Last November 2009, I was in Hong Kong with some friends. We chose to stay at Yesinn Hostel because it's not that expensive. It turned out that we really got a great bargain staying here because it's not only affordable, it's just opposite the train station and just near bus stops which makes our travel to places we want to visit (Disneyland, Avenue of Stars, etc.) comfortable. Around the area are a number of food stall or fast food chains that you can eat at. I will definitely recommend this to others specially for groups who wants to stay in just a room since they got rooms for 6 or more people.

Pretty easy to find after getting off the airport bus and the staff were friendly and helpful. Room was very small but reasonably clean. The only major problem was the bed bugs!!! Good location near the metro and several local and western restaurants. Very safe with key cards and pin codes. Filtered water and bottled water available. Internet available in the lounge area via shared computer, or WiFi available 24/7 for free.

Our room was a double, very quiet with a window (looking out at a wall!!) but good air con. Not too bad at all!
