Venetian Hostel

Reviewed August 23, 2011

Dodgy looking guesthouse on the 13th floor of a dilapidated building and the corridor had an extremely unpleasant smell to it. The owner of the place was no doubt friendly and helpful, but that is the only compensation Venetian has to offer.

I am not expecting hotel-like service, understanding very well that it is a hostel after all. However, the place is absolutely disgusting. The beds are crawling with bed bugs, the toilet of the room I was in didn't have a knob, the wallpaper was peeling and the wall lamps were TAPED to the wall. This place is falling apart.

No thrills hostel with one of these showers which goes all over the toilet seat, the room is cleaned daily and there an is aircon. The place is safe despite the initial reaction of barricading the room. Ignore the dodgy characters downstairs, take comfort in the police supervisors at the entrance and the fact so many people choose to stay there on a daily basis. I have seen families, couples and fellow solo adventurers from different countries. If you are looking to spend less on your accomodation and more in Milan Station, this could be the deal!

This hostel charges an additional 100HKD fee upon your arrival. DO NOT book it online. Total scam. For the money I ended up paying, I could have gotten a budget hotel in the same area. It's a crummy commercial building, tiny windowless rooms, and shower head is right above the toilet bowl. If you like this location and want a hostel price, just show up on Nathan Rd and hoards of people will be offering you much better deals on hostels!

prior to our stay in man hing lung hostel which i can say was perfect for us in terms of accomodations and nice treatment...my family stayed at supposed to be usa hostel but in such a difficult situation ,my email regarding the time and date of arrival had misunderstanding with the receptionist on duty..instead that we pay only 2 nights..we pay 3 nights..as she told us there was no room available instead she accomodated us in another room in the venetian hostel..the room was quite okay and the cr is ok...but the worst experience we had was the aircon..it was really very hot.it was cold in a while but the whole time it wasn"t anymore.too bad and pity for the kids...i complained to the staff and they checked it but it was still the same...
we will never stay in this hostel again!
