“Great Location and Good Amenities but Noisy”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights at Room 2. First of all, I need to say that there are many pluses for the inn, but as a reviewer, I need to be objective and state the minuses that have been missed out by other reviewers as well.

When we booked the inn, we had a very smooth process of paying by Paypal and then being assigned the gate, unit and room code via email. This is truly 21st century-style check in process; very good! We arrived at 02.30 AM and did not run into any problem checking in whatsoever despite there never having been any staff on the inn site. The staff had kindly left a folder of guide around the area and some contact numbers for booking tours or emergency situation. They also cleaned the room every evening.

The room is very small as expected of every HK hotels, but comfy. We have everything we need in the inn: free broadband wifi, hair dryer, reasonably spacious cupboard and other shelvings, soap, shampoo, toilet paper. The air-con is also well-situated where it would not blow onto your face. It was an impressive but simple interior decorating. As other reviewers point out, the beds and pillows and comforters are very comfy. The furnishings are also new and therefore in good working condition.

The location, as stated, is just behind the famous Times Square. It was therefore close to Causeway Bay MTR station. There are also streets of great food and shopping places beside it.

Now come the bad part. The window overlooked a tram station, and being on the 2nd level, made sleeping abit problematic due to the noise. On our 2nd night, we could hear high-heeled footsteps and the sound of wheeled suitcase being dragged in as someone used Room 3 next door. Every sound the guest made, such as showering and blow-drying her hair, could be heard. We were woken up by the sound of her opening and shutting the door in the morning. The next day, a family with children stayed at the inn. We kept hearing the children's voices, the sound of them playing on the beds and other sounds of the shower. If you are a light sleeper, this inn may not provide the best rest. We guessed that the bedrooms were separated by thin plywood so a lot of the noises could be heard, though not everything, thankfully.

Overall, this hotel is value-for-money in a place where it is difficult to get cheap accomodation like HK. It is still in new condition and so is comfortable. The staff is very efficient and considerate. But do buy ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

We stayed at Causeway Bay Inn for 3 nights from 5 to 8 April. We booked Room 3 (the biggest room), and it was spacious, neat and impeccably clean. The beds and pillows were really comfortable! The free WIFI was strong and fast. The location is superb - it is very near to the Causeway Bay MTR Station and there are many eateries and shopping places within the vicinity. All in all, it is really a value-for-money place to stay in. Would definitely stay here again the next time I visit HK! :)

Room Tip: Room 3 is really spacious!

We stayed at Causeway Bay Inn for two days. The location is super - 100 meters away from Times Square. Lots of eateries downstairs, including Chee Kei Wonton soup and a homemade desert shop. Room is new and in good shape. Staff is helpful and kind. Last but not least, it is rather affordable, even cheaper than most of hostels in the same area. Definitely staying there again for my next visit to HK!

Good location in Causeway bay: near MTR Exit A, Times Square, Maxim's, Cafe de Coral, Forever 21, McDonald's, Sogo, Jardine's bazaar, etc. Very clean rooms and comfortable mattress. Small washroom but that's quite expected since we got the smallest room. Hostel and room doors have security codes so no need to worry about losing your keys. Very easy online transaction through their website/Paypal. You can expect a quick reply within the day. I've stayed in other hostels in Hong Kong, but Causeway Bay Inn is a far cry from your average hostels. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit. I hope it's still as clean and well-maintained.

Its worth ignoring the rather tatty entrance and lead up to the Causeway Bay Inn because, once inside, the rooms are spotless!! Small but clean in a brilliant location. Right next to the MTR and Times Square shopping centre. I'd definately stay here again!!

We stayed for two nights and really liked this hotel. There is no one to meet you, you are given access codes before you check in for the building and room, but this worked well and we didn't miss having a lengthy check in process. The room was really clean and actually bigger than we were expecting given the reviews (we did get the large room of the three). Causeway bay felt really nice and safe, the hotel is two mins walk to the MTR. Only downside is the noise, you can pretty much hear the people in the room beside you sneeze, but I think that's a given in Hong Kong. Lots of hot water, hair dryer, safe, pretty much everything you need. We would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: The large room was a good size
