Yesinn Causeway Hostel was a fantastic hostel, short walk to Causeway Bay, air con, free fast internet throughout the building, roof terrace for late night drinking (BYO), fairly large lockers per bed, clean, friendly, hot showers... couldn't fault it. Would highly recommend!!! If you're going back to Hong Kong airport from there, bus is actually easier vs. Express as there's less walking and it's more direct, oh and cheaper.

Happy Travels :)

Room Tip: 21 bed dorm is of course cheaper. Spacious rooms, so no problem there. And surprisingly never queued...

When I finally got to Yesinn Fortress Hill, I was led to a room which remained dirty and uncleaned after the last occupant. The staff got around to cleaning it quick enough but the place was still filthy. There remained bits of rubbish on the wet floor in our ensuite toilet and there was a layer of dust on the floor and on the furniture. The staff was friendly and answered our queries regarding Disneyland patiently but they were usually busy chatting among themselves behind the reception desk.The location was good though, being a very short walk from Fortress Hill station with a Seven Eleven convenience store right beside the hostel. However, in view of the cleanliness problem, I would think twice before staying here again.

It's a ok place.

The staff (I only encountered them once as I was placed in a different building to where the main reception is) were quite nice and helpful.

My room was clean and it seemed quite safe (the building had a security guard downstairs and you needed a keycard to enter) and it also had kitchen facilities (cooker/microwave/fridge/freezer) in the communal area.

The hostel is only located a few minutes away from Fortress Hill station which provided very quick access to Central.

The room was small quite small but the bed was comfortable.

we stayed there for 4 nights. The place is clean and nicely decorated (typical hostel decoration very colorful). I had a quite big problem with a staff member's attitude. However, I emailed the company straightaway explaining what happened. The answer was very good and I was very satisfied with their corrective actions. I will probably stay there again.

This is the worst i ever stay.
When check-in, they need to move you to opposite block, meaning you need to pull all your luggage all the way across the road again....

We were given a room that the bedsheet is old n dirty. Floor full of hair strands, toilet not clean.
Toilet incredible small. Westerner which is bigger size may have a problem to squeeze in the toilet. Kitchen full of ants.

This is a Nightmare....

Although train station is nearby but this location is out. Nearby shop close early not as some places in HK.
Hostel managed by Filipinoes....

I booked my hostel and was informed I was to check in at Fortress Hill, however when I got there, they said the rooms are all occupied, and they took me to the one in Causeway Bay. Which was still fine.
The problem occurred when I wanted to return to the Causeway Bay's hostel, and I was lost. Naturally, the best person to inquire would be the Hostel Keepers. I had no other numbers except for the one in Fortress Hill. Without listening to my real inquiry, the GUY reception instructed me to take the tram and travel 6 stops down from where I was (Already in Causeway Bay). And the way he answered was not how they should treat their customers. I called him 3 times to finally get him to understand what I was saying.

Internet was SAID to be provided, but on the 3rd night of my stay, it went flat. I called in to make a report on the 4th night, all I got was "You should've called in the morning so we can send someone". There was no apology, no sense of ownership. And internet was not fixed till the day I left.

Another matter to note is probably this : Check if this Hostel is a licensed one, I saw notices on the Kingston Road's lift asking people to report "Illegal Hostel Operations".

This really put me off.

Room Tip: If you still want to go, book WAAAYYY ahead, cuz it can still cost A LOT.
