Travellers Friendship Hostel
Ranked #125 of 164 Specialty Lodging in Hong Kong
Reviewed August 19, 2007

I recently travelled to Hong Kong for 4 nights with my 9 year-old daughter.

When I booked my stay at the Travellers Friendship Hostel, the pictures showed "Deluxe" Rooms which seemed very nice. However there was NO facility in place to book said "Deluxe" rooms - just standard rooms

Upon arrival, and having paid for a Standard Twin room with ensuite, I can safely say that there is a vast difference between the quality of the Deluxe and Standard rooms.

I paid at the Travellers Friendship counter, and was promptly taken to the USA Hostel on the other side of the building. This seems to be a pretty common practice, as a number of other travellers I encountered said the same thing.

I stayed one night in the standard room and enquired about upgrading for the remaining 3 nights and was told that this was possible, at a cost of $200HK per night, but I would have to pay for 4, even though I'd only be staying 3.

Needless to say, I was not going to pay for a night I would not even be sleeping in the room, and so I elected to remain in the standard room.

The standard rooms are small - even by asian standards.

It was not possible to sit on the toilet and close the door, as the bathroom was so small.

Additionally there were exposed electrical wires in the bathroom, upon being notified about, management then proceeded to tape up (see photo) you will also see that the light is hanging by one bolt only.

You get what you pay for. This place costs, peanuts, and so you get the monkey cage I spose

But also, as you said, as hotels in Hong Kong, if you choose standard rooms are like this, there is no wifi no windows, luggage should be charged, but also very grateful to you this fact, this is mainly because the price determined to be here repeat because these are tips on the Internet, some guests did not see us as a hotel, but also honest business, work hard against it, so we have different types of rooms to meet the different needs of the people, such as a standard room is to some of the economic budget, less demanding guests to prepare, but also because some guests accommodation in Hong Kong do not know, coming here are not satisfied, we will help guests to upgrade to better room, such as a wifi, there is a window large, some boutique room has 24-hour hot water, hair dryer, and so on. Give us a more comprehensive understanding of the problem, to make a more specific improvements for your understanding, we are very grateful, as a small hotel, we will improve irresolute use best efforts to improve our level of service for guests we can live in happiness and peace of mind.
