“Small beds but good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

I needed to spend two nights in Hong Kong near Hankow Rd and read all the reviews and chose Hop Inn. Check in was very friendly. Rooms were clean. Location was great. I am 6'3" or 192 cm and my head and feet were both resting on the top and bottom bars of the metal bed frame so it was very difficult to get any sleep. Walls are very thin. Price is OK for Hong Kong where a good room will cost you $130.

I recently stayed in Hop Inn on Hankow Road. It's location makes it a great place to stay. From TST Mtr station, the closest would be exit A1, or the one from isquare.

Being on a holiday with a loved one from the 5th to the 9th of Jan, it was comfortable stay for the both of us. Although the room was a slightly small, it was still comfortable for us to put our luggage bags. The bed was slightly hard. The water pressure was amazing for a warm shower after being out in the cold

The only problem at the moment is the construction which is goin on opposite hop Inn. As we got room 6, which faces the road, It wasn't pleasant to sleep on after 10 as the noise was a little too loud for comfort. But surely once the construction is over, it would be great.

The other small problem we had was the smell coming from the pipes of the sink. It gets a little funky after using the sink. But it gets bearable.

Other than that, it was a great stay at Hop Inn for me and my loved one. Thanks Hop Inn.

It's just like what everyone else say, fantastic value, smack in the middle of tsim sha tsui. Room is a bit small, but exceeded my expectation cos the 2 medium size suitcases fit very well, I didn't have to put it upright everytime after use. We had the twin room so the small doublebed is not an issue
The receptionist speak good English although we spoke in Cantonese. Very friendly n helpful compared to typical HK service staff. the building itself I think house some dodgy massage parlor or 'alternative' lodging, but I don't feel unsafe being female travelers walking back at night.
Highly recommended for those who wanted no frills accommodation at an affordable price in HK

This hotel/hostel is located in what, seems to be, an old apartment building or office building.

In fact, its 9 themed-rooms are located on a single hallway on the 2nd floor, beside a cafe. The rooms are very small. So small, that you barely have room to move around. However, it is cozy, trendy, clean and very affordable.

The staff cannot be nicer and they also sell discounted tickets for major tourist attractions. Ask any receptionist about places to have awesome dim sum and don't forget to get to Hong Kong by boat - cheap and amazing views!

I haven't much to add to what other travellers have said - except that we unfortunately got off on the wrong foot at Hop Inn - our booking quite clearly stated that we had booked for the other on Carnarvon and when we arrived, after a very long and ardous journey, we were somewhat abruptly disabused of this idea. The person on duty did point out some very, very fine print which suggested that the confirmation mail had come from Hop Inn on Hankow, but the body of the text was fairly clear - and wrong. The rest of our stay was uneventful - the staff were very pleasant, and I'll probably stay here again, but I can only recommend that you double check that all details before you arrive. The bathroom smelled a bit musty, but not so that it was really a problem.

Stayed in a Twin room for 2 nights in Carnarvon. Rooms were clean and well maintained, although is small (as expected). We had a Big and Medium luggage, which fit just right. If you have more bags, it would be too crowded. Except for the Pillow quality, everything are very comfy and provided for.

Service is really good, the reception staffs are very nice, friendly and accommodative. You can also purchased tickets to Ocean Park, Disneyland, Victoria Peak/Madame Tussauds here.

The hostel is located right above a 7-eleven and opposite the McD, and well located with food and shopping outlets. Just a 2-3 mins walk to the MTR entrance. Really convenient.

Highly recommended for visitors who wants to stay in a value-for-money lodging in Tsim Sha Tsui.
