1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

arrival and did not have my reservation. after 1 hour you decide to visit an accommodation (most expensive) in front, forcing me to return to the 'morrow. I had an 'other booking the following week and found that they did not ask for a refund when I threaten to send me away. sucks

As we arrived late at night in HK, we had only the 15 INN / Sun Kong Hostel left. The woman from the hostel picked us up at the Causeway way station, so we didn´t have to search for - very friendly. The house was a bit run down, but the location is perfect in the Causeway Bay district. Unfortunately, the room was very spartan furnishings and really tiny (room was even too small to take overview pictures). There was no sheets and the bed was dewy. After all there was wireless internet and telephone, warm water and towels. For one night just fine, but nothing for a week trip to Hong Kong. Especially not for HK $ 400, what is definitely too expensive for such a stay. There are better alternatives for the same price!

room - basic and very compact (small even for deluxe room)
toilet - not working as expected
cleanliness - overall clean but dont expect for feather pillow, nice pillow case/bedsheet.. very basic
safety - not recommended for individual traveller.
service - rsvp for room is efficient and simple (via email)

Room Tip: I travelled to this place in 2011 Feb. I wont call it hostel/motel. I would say, more like a home st...

I stayed there a few nights ago and the rooms were even tinier than expected in HKK and they were dirty. The staff was extremely rude, they didn't even make any effort to speak English and tried to throw us out of our room before checkout. To top it off, they wouldn't do (paid) laundry for us!

Room Tip: No room in this hostel is a good room! We got an ensuite and it was horrible and dirty!

The first time I came here, I dealt with the nice young lady (I'm guessing she is the owner, not sure). She was very helpful and booked a room in the same building. The room was nice and clean.

The second time I came, I ran into the older lady who shouts like everyone is talking about. She books the rooms in the place across the street. It is mildew, moldy, and not secure!

When I complained about the room, her strategy is oh I gave you a double bed instead of a single bed, you should be happy, but the room is like that of something out of the projects. Then after I complained, she tried to increase the price, same BS.

The only good thing I can say is that even though I prepaid in advance, when I left to go to another hotel, she refunded me the money for the prepaid nights.

See the ACTUAL ROOM before you pay, because if you end up across the street, forget it!

Room Tip: See the room first! It's a must! Don't play the "no speak English bs", she under...

The only saving grace of this hostel is its location. It is steps away from major malls, including Sogo. When I arrived, there was no receptionist. I had to wait for her to arrive. When I did get to meet her, she was really rude. The room she gave me was in another building and we had to walk for 10 minutes. When I saw my single room, my heart sank. The paint on the wall was peeling, there was an orange stain on the ceiling, the bed looked dirty. The other guests were noisy up until 4 AM! When I went out shopping, I made sure I didn't leave anything in my room. I didn't feel safe. I checked-out really early the next day and swore never to set foot on this hostel again.
