“Great location and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I stayed here for about a week and am very happy I picked this hostel to stay at. The location was perfect. Right close to the MTR station, and close to lots of restaurants and shopping areas. The hostel was very clean and the free wifi was awesome.
I slept in the all girls dorm, on the bottom bunk. There's only one bathroom for 9 people, which can be a bit crazy in the morning. There's curtains around each bunk so you can have a bit of privacy.
They have a rooftop bar, and host parties up there often - which is great for meeting people. They also have pub crawls, which I went on my first night, and is how I met my friends for the week.

The staff I have mixed feelings about. Some were very nice and helpful, while a few, mainly one was rude and unpleasant. There also wasn't enough space to sit in the main common area usually.

It's really convenient that the bus stop right outside the hostel takes you to Repulse Bay and Stanley Marktet. It comes about every 5 minutes. The beach was awesome and not crowded at all. I really suggest going there!

This has been one of my favourite hostels I've stayed at. Would definitely stay here again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

a friend recommended this hostel as a cool place to stay, meet people and hang out and I wasn't disappointed. Stayed in a dorm room which was clean but small. Hostel is in a great location, very central and easy to get anywhere by walking/tram or MRT.
the hostel has a rooftop area which is cool for hanging out, drinking and meeting people.

A group of us went on the HK pub crawl which goes from the hostel which was great fun.(I normally hate pub crawls and enforced drinking but this one was just chilled and fun). met lots of new people and went to some cool bars we wouldn't have otherwise found (and saved some money on drinks...) The nightlife is the best thing about HK so highly recommended especially if you are alone or just wanting to have a good night out!

Amazing location, very nice accomodations, clean, well priced, super awesome rooftop terrace great for meeting others in the building and having an evening drink. And for those interested in the nightlife, they offer a great pub crawl wed,fri and sunday. Offering discounted drinks for yesinn hostellers participating in the crawl.

My friend and I came to Hong Kong from Korea for a week and stayed in one of the rooms with eight other girls - we had a great experience. Everyone who works at the hostel is very helpful and friendly. They have everything you need to make staying there convenient - international plugs by the bed, comfortable mattress, free internet on each floor. There was a bathroom in our room so you're not sharing one big public restroom. Its location is also great, right across from Causeway Bay MTR station. Also, there were lots of travelers from all over and tons of hot guys staying there if you're interested in that sort of thing...lol. Hope you stay here and enjoy like we did!

First off this is the only hostel I have stayed in in Hong Kong so it may be best of a bad bunch but it was average. Communal area was tiny although nice free massage chair. We found the staff reasonably unhelpful unless really pushed. They are also very busy and only a few of them.

Rooms were ok but 9ppl to one bathroom.. Bunks had curtain and private light etc but bottom bunks are a mattress on the floor.

Mainly I leave this HONEST review as they hand out free beer if you give them a good one. Frankly not good enough to deserve that and not worth the beer!

Stayed in a 9 bed room on 7th floor and the room was larger than anything else I saw advertised in Hong Kong which was a relief as I'd seen so many pictures of tiny rooms with multiple beds cramped in which seems to be the norm. The room I stayed in had triple decker bunk beds which was a first for me but were very easy to get into (mine was in the middle) and perfectly comfortable with a curtain round the bed for privacy if wanted. A good amount of space in the middle of the room and a locker each which was good. Some of the staff were helpful and friendly but others were a bit rude and there is a language barrier so just pot luck as to who you get on the desk. It isn't the easiest place to find as the entrance isn't actually on Hennessy road as advertised but just off it though once you've found it once its easy to get your bearings. No lift from the ground to the first floor which was annoying When you've got big and heavy bags and you're not used to the intense humidity but there is a lift to the rest of the floors so not the end of the world. Easy walking distance to Causeway Bay MRT station which makes it very easy to travel about the place to get to any touristy destinations you may want to see.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Room stayed: 9 beds in a room, 7th Floor

Location: Shopping areas (eg. Time Square / 4-storey Apple Store / 4-storey Forever21); HK cafes (eg. Tsui Wah / desert Hui Lau Shan); MTR station just within 4 mins walking distance away. The hostel is located above SCB bank (which seemed a little odd), along a side-street. During our stay, we also witness many travellers who doubted the entrance to the hostel before walking-into the building.

Cleanliness: The toilet is unexpectedly clean and new, for a hostel. If you're staying for more than 2 days, it is strongly suggested to change your bed sheet and quilt covers. You will need to pay a premium for change in the bedsheet and quilt covers though. (I've got bites all over my legs when I woke up from Day 2 onwards).

Other tips for travellers: Be prepared to climb 2 storeys of stairs before you reach the reception area -- suitable for backpackers, or light trolley. The lockers given are big enough to fit a 6kg backpack, not for big luggages. 9 peoples sharing 1 toilet -- wake up earlier than the rest if you don't want to queue. Bring your own bottle, free refill for water/coffee/toast in the pantry. There is a common hair dryer and mirror outside your room. Lights off for room at 11PM. Stable WiFi connection.

Overall: I am satisfied with my stay in Yesinn and would recommend it to friends who plan to travel light and cheap around Hong Kong city.
