We stayed in a room for 4 persons. Typical small room and bathroom. But beds are high so you can put your luggage under the bed. Reception is open 0800H to 2400H. Contact them ahead of time if you're planning to check-in early morning. Check-out is no problem, since you can just drop the room keys in a red bag... More

I got the cheapest deal for 4 rooms and because it's cheap, I expected less since we only need a place to sleep to. When we arrived late at night, a very friendly and accommodating Andy assisted us at check-in and made sure that everything is in order. Location is very convenient as it is near mtr station, mall, night... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and paid £100, the private room we stayed in was small which we were expecting and had a private small bathroom. It was all very dirty, there was hair all over the room and the sheets were covered in stains like it had not even been looked at since the last person or persons... More

Ah, it’s Hong Kong … what do you expect? Suffice to say, it’s near good eating and transports … and loads of shopping areas. Typical old HK apartment housing in Kowloon converted to inns and hostels. So expect small rooms and long queues for the slow elevator. It’s much better and improved on the HK island side though more expensive... More

The location of the hostel is great if you opt to stay around Mongkok area. It's very accessible from the MTR and bus stations, just around 3 minutes walk to either of the stations. The elevator is not crowded so it's convenient to go up to the hostel even if it's on the 14th floor. I was able to stay... More

It is clean and neat, very little noice even though it's very central, much thanks to that it's high up in the buildning. Staff is friendly.... More

First, their website says that they provide free towels.And then upon entering the "hotel" there is a laminated notice saying that to become eco-friendly, they will only provide 1 towel for free, and then pay $10 if you want the towel changed the next day or so...

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
