We are a young couple, and usually stay in hostels. This place is not really a hostel, it's one up from it. For instance they advertise that there is a kitchen, but all there is in the kitchen is a microwave and a sink. This was not an issue for us, as it is cheap to eat out (or you can buy instant noodles from the 7/11 and use the kettle in your room), but travellers should be aware that the kitchen is not like hostel kitchens in Australia, USA and NZ. It is therefore, a great deal- hostel priced and hotel quality. In agreement with other reviewers, Chai Wan is not central, but the hotel is very close to the MTR station, and the metro is quick, cheap and easy into the CBD. The only other drawback is that it is a little bit difficult to find on first arrival, but if you just head towards the Youth Square (look for signposts in the MTR station), you should be able to find an entrance to a lift, and the reception is on the 12th floor.
The rooms are great- spacious, clean, modern and new. Each room has its own FREE, very fast internet which is rare in hotels in HK, and free local calls.
24 hour reception, very friendly, efficient and helpful staff.
Towels and hand soap are provided (take own bodywash and shampoo etc). The cafe down the corridor of reception is very poor, don't go there (despite discount with room card). Overall a great experience, would reccommend this place.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have twin beds (but try requesting a double bed if you want one)

The Good

- Large, clean, private rooms, many with balconies facing into a central courtyard and all with ensuite facilities
- Modern custom furnishings with a zingy colour scheme.
- Big flat-screen tv with a couple of English language channels showing mainly boring British and American imports (except Big Bang Theory which is brilliant).
- Unusual room design. Enormous sink in the bedroom, separate from the rest of the ensuite bathroom.
- Direct connection to a shopping mall with shops and eateries open until late. Great if you have a late-night hankering for tiramisu.
- Power shower! Perhaps the most powerful shower head in the history of mankind. Was literally blown about the shower cubicle.
- Kettle and mugs in the room but bring your own tea bags and milk.
- Staff spoke good English and were very approachable and helpful. They could book tickets for you and had good local knowledge.
- Very quiet. No street noise at all.
- On-site laundry was spotless, easy to use and cheap. Buy tokens from reception.
- Free on-site gym looked barely used. Equipment was top of the range.
- Free Wifi in all rooms.

The Bad

- A bit of a slog to get to. The building is directly connected by flyover to Chai Wan Station on the MTR Island Line (well signposted), but to get to Hong Kong Central takes around 30 minutes.
- Finding the reception for the first time is a complete pain and navigating the building itself will make you want to punch your way through a wall to save yourself time and effort. Read my advice in the verdict below if you need some help.
- The Youth Square building has four lifts, but they always seemed to be in use when I needed them. I often had to wait several minutes for one to become available.
- Firm bed. Very firm bed. Don’t jump onto it on arrival. You’ll snap your neck. Took a little getting used to but I did so much sightseeing, I still slept like a sloth.

The Verdict

Every box ticked as far as I’m concerned. Y-Loft was comfortable, clean and modern. On the negative side, a degree of patience (and maybe a degree) is required in getting to and from the building and navigating the building itself, but this problem is almost negated by the hotel’s many positives. In other words, it was worth the hassle. Price wise, Y-Loft was a complete bargain. Book through dedicated hostel booking websites for the best deals.

Where's the Reception?

I’ve never had to write a ‘Where is the Reception?’ section before, but for Y-Loft, it is completely necessary. Finding it for the first time is a nightmare if you don’t do some research beforehand.

I’m assuming that you’ll be traveling to Y-Loft in the MTR. Take the train to Chai Wan, the last stop on the Island Line. Upon alighting, follow the signs for Exit A. Go through the doors into the New Jade Shopping Centre. Pass through the centre, veering right and pass through a second set of doors leading outside. Walk along the footbridge, then take the first right. Look up. That’s Youth Square. Look down again. You’re approaching a bizarre, user-unfriendly entrance to the building. Head straight on by stairs and slopes (not the escalator) and find the lifts. Call any lift and head for floor 12. Upon alighting the lift, turn right. Reception is just around the corner. Phew!

Where my room?

Listen carefully to the instructions given to you by the person on reception about where your room is. This building makes no sense whatsoever.

I was on a budget trip with my backpack through Asia and found this place on a Hostel webpage but after visiting this place I don't really know how to rate it, as it's more of a Hotel experiance than a Hostel. The main problem with this place is the location, its on the end line of one of the subway lines. It takes about 40 minutes to reach it from downtown Hong Kong. Even after exiting the station, you don't really know where to go. Had to ask the locals for the directions. The hotel lobby is on a high level and it shares the floors with a Garden Patio, a coffee/snack bar, laundry and a small gym. The rooms are big compared to other Hong Kong locations and they offer a balcony overlooking the patio Garden on the reception level. The flat TV screen in my room was attached to the wall in a silly way, cause you coudn't see it while being in bed. The bathrooms are small but clean and offer everything you need on a budget trip. The beds are comfortable and the A/C worked perfectly. The only thing that makes this place a hostel like is the fact that they don't make up your room everyday. If you want to eat anything, there is a mall on the way to the subway and also for a overnight snack you can walk to the 7eleven location block away. There is a bus running from the bus stop next to the hotel to the Hongkong Airport, it takes a while to get there, but the views are wonderful,

Room Tip: Ask a local how to get to the station

The hotel is next to a mall, in what appears to be a residential neighborhood, and is conveniently located near the subway. While it's a bit far from the center of HK, it doesn't take long to get there by subway. (It's actually the most remote subway station, but one doesn't need to switch lines from Central.) Although not exactly a romantic hangout, the hotel has a young, modern feeling and the rooms are clean, quiet and pleasant. The staff was very nice and spoke English. In the winter, the heating isn't turned on when the temperature is over 20 degrees (C). I was cold and requested a second blanket, which was kindly provided. Because they charge by person, it's a fantastic deal if travelling alone, but still a very good deal if travelling with company. I enjoyed my stay there.

As it had been said by many, it's a bit away from central HongKong. But the price, size and quality of the rooms sure makes up for the location. It's modern, vibrant and youthful. I enjoyed checking out the themes of the other floors. There is a nearby mall, 7-eleven and local deli shop that have microwavable meals. It's close to the MTR and since it's at the end of the line, you always get the seats first. You can spend your travel time people-watching, planning your day ahead or just resting those achy feet after a day of shopping!

Room Tip: If you're not afraid of heights, choose rooms with balcony overlooking Chai Wan.
