“HK IN DECEMBER 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

We arrived in a rainy and cold HK and we booked our stay in Yessin in Causeway Bay. I was here last 2011 with friends and liked the place because it was new at that time and near the MTR. This year I am with family and opted to stay here again because it has the best value for money and easy access to places we wanted to go. And since we're gone the whole day, it is practical to stay in a hostel, that BTW has an accommodation for private room good for 4 people that we avail.
Yessin has a lived in appeal now but still has the same friendly and helpful staff.
We stayed for 4 days and 5 nights. On our first night we avail the 9 bed coed room and it was as we expected. But we transferred to the private room for 4 on the third day and it was in the building across the one we're staying. We were kind of disappointed at first because we waited until 2pm to transfer our belongings to the rooms but the room wasn't cleaned up. The garbage was still there and the toilet is a mess. The beddings was also suspect that we immediately informed the staff. They immediately have it cleaned and we waited for awhile before we can transfer. It was kind of an inconvenience having it in another building because we have to transfer every time we need to use the pantry. Also, there are bedbugs :( Maybe it's time to burn the mattresses, we still have itchy welts as souvenirs. On the upside the the wifi now is available in every room unlike before that the wifi is only in the lounge area. Also, good eats at the back of the hostel. Just remember to point to the picture of the food to get your order right.
To travellers, check the weather report before coming here and dress appropriately. Bring umbrella in warm or wintry season because you'll definitely need them. Don't get too caught up in your itinerary, just take the bus or mtr to wherever and you still get to places that's worthy of a photo op. We took the bus just outside the doorsteps of Yessin to Stanley Market and it was the best decision we made. It has a different vibe , far away from the bustling metropolis, it's a good trip to unwind the anxieties created by the night markets and theme parks. I'm definitely going back. :)

Room Tip: If you have a choice, don't ever get that bedbunk in room 8 with the AC overhead your bed.

Great hostel, easy to miss from the street, but follow the directions from your booking, it will be okay. Free wifi was great, as was the rooftop seating area. The bunkbeds were quite spacious and everything was very clean (almost too clean, the cleaner was in the bathroom upwards of 4 times a day!) Strangely, during the time I was there was that most of the guests at the hostel seemed to be men, I have no idea why, just an odd observation!

If you're coming from the airport make sure you have small notes - the scamming driver gives no change! The hostel is surprisingly easy to miss on first arrival but its situated in a decent part of town.
Our expectations of hong kong were low - we'd been lead to believe that as veggies we'd starve and would have to stay with cockroaches in a grotty dive - wrong on both counts!
Yesinn is a modern hostel aimed at international backpackers it has many of the basics covered: a/c, kitchen, lounge, computer, wi-fi, information and external terraces. None of the facilities are excellent: small lounge, very basic kitchen, dated rooms etc but its a decent place to meet people and base yourself in hong kong.

The hostel is good (about ten floors). There is a lot of people. The commom parts are really nice, there is a kind of leaving room for relaxing, with computer free to use, a smoking terrasse on the forth flour with the wifi, which is perfect if you got work or wanna skype as there are not too much people. And there is the rooftop for chilling. You can bring drinks from outside, and you will meet a lot of people there. There are several pubcrawl organised every weeks.

The thing rooms are correct but they are 9 people room, that´s a lot of people, and you can keep your shoes in room unfortunatly, so however they are always cleaning it becomes rapidly a bit dirty. Bathrooms are correct also, just try not to be the last one amoung the 9 peoplr to take your shower.

But if you wanna meet people go there.

Good: clean room and bed. Good privacy with curtain available for your bed and also lockers for your valuables. Staff are nice. Wifi is provided and works well. There is a nice rooftop area

Bad: lift is a bit slow so you might have to wait a bit for it to arrive, the lift also doesn't go right to the ground floor so you will have to go up and down the stairs with your things. In the kitchen coffee and tea are provided but the mugs are tiny so I used my own. There is also not much cutlery provided. Also the massage chair was out of order.

Overall it was a very good place to stay for 5 nights. There is a minor inconvenience with the lift and kitchen facilities but that might just be me being picky.

The staff in the hostel were friendly and helpful. We stayed in a nine bedded dorm which had it's own bathroom. The hostel was clean and tidy. It was a little hard to find as you have to enter through a small door at the back of a bank and climb to the second floor, but it is very well located right next to Times Square.
