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. :)
