the location was really great! near to MTR, right in front of trem station. the price was cheap also, i think it was the cheapest budget hotel in hong kong. the room was quite small but very clean and safe. will definitely stay in here again if i come by to hong kong again!

We are definitely staying here again for all our future trips to Hong Kong! The place is located on the second floor of a building right in front of Times Square, so you can't beat the location. It's near the MTR station exits, within walking distance of the shopping malls and shops, and also right in front of a tram station if you want to take one going to Wan Chai or Central.

We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful interiors of the room. It was well-lighted, simply and elegantly decorated, and maximized the cramped space with shelves and built-in closets. Cleanliness was also a high priority since we saw someone clean everyday. I cannot express how much we loved this place!

It was really convenient to be at the heart of Causeway and within MTR stations away from all the major tourist and shopping spots. For breakfast, there's a McDonalds nearby but we recommend the Red Ant Restaurant which is a couple of steps away at Sharp Street, for HKD26 per meal you can get a nicely brewed cup of coffee with a huge toast, bacon, sausage, and eggs. There are also a lot of eateries nearby so you won't run out of options.

What we didn't like was the hallway on the second floor before you reach the guest house. Since it's beside an Indian restaurant, the hallway always seemed oily and smelled of food. But if you don't mind passing by it everyday, once you key in the passcodes to get inside the guest house you'll instantly forget the unpleasantness outside. Once inside the guest house, you have to key in another set of codes to enter your room, this apart from the codes to get inside the building on the ground floor, so no worries about security.

All in all, we highly recommend this place!

First of all I would like to answer the question from Marcythia26 that there is a pull out bed in room 1. You can see there is a gap under the mattress and the drawers of the bed on the picture. The drawer part is the child's bed. Amazing, they make use of all the space.
The owner of the inn is very accommodating and nice with my changing of stay (remind you I made the change 3 weeks before) and payment is very easy and secure. At first I was worried about the access codes since there is no reception. There were no problems at all, very easy to access to each entrance. We arrived the night when Hong Kong hit by typhoon, No. 8 signal was raised right after we done our dinner. Lucky that the inn is close to everywhere and we have enough time to buy water and sweet soup downstairs. Room is spotless, clean, neat and quite exactly what you see from the pictures. It was very hot and humid in Hong Kong but the air conditioning is excellent and you can adjust to your needs. Bed are very comfortable, we have no problem to fall asleep. Internet and Wi-Fi are very fast. The cleaning lady is very nice and a hard worker, she did a very good job of cleaning the room and we oversaw her kneeing down to vacuum under the bed from other room. Honestly, I really don’t think is a big deal, it is just the hot water is not hot or warm enough for the second person after the first person went for a bath. I absolutely will go back there next time and will pass the words to all my friends and relatives.

Given that Hong Kong hotels are really pricey for good locations, this hostel gives the best value for what it's worth.

I booked room 2 a few months in advance and at HKD380 a night, this place is a STEAL. Don't listen to what people say about the roads being very noisy at night because it's not! You do hear the occasional sirens but that's pretty common to say the very least in most areas.

The hostel is located right behind Times Square, near exit A of the Causeway Bay MTR and I will recommend taking the airport bus A11 down to the stop after Wan Chai fire station. Do not attempt to take the train via airport express and then connecting to the subway at hong kong main station because you will encounter difficulty pushing your luggage around the crowded subway corridor and stairs.

Booking of the hostel can be done on their website and payment made via paypal. A week before your arrival, you will receive 3 pin codes from the hostel - one for the front gate, one for the main door and one for your room.

The rooms are kept very clean, though small and there is a mini refrigerator, small kettle, TV, shampoo and soap toiletries and yes, Free WIFI.

This place is indeed very worth the value but of course if given the choice, i would not have wanted to stay at causeway bay since it is on hong kong island. if you are into shopping, staying somewhere along the red line (kowloon) will be more time conserving. However, if you do not mind all the extra walking, this hostel is indeed a gem for all the budget conscious.

Causeway Bay Inn is spotless, in a good location, and relatively quiet (you can hear the tram etc but it's causeway bay and it's on the second floor). Really good value for money.

I agree with the other reviewers that this is a hassle-free hotel. Even without the reception, the process through booking until checkout was seamless.

I will be back in November!

Booked a twin room with ensuite, like all hostels in HK, the room was small but adequate for 2 people.
Pros...
Very clean
Good location (in time square)
Builidng/room felt secure
Free wifi, kettle & fridge
Good central location on HK island
Good value for money

Cons...
On a main road by timesquare so was a bit noisy (didn't bother me though)
No staff at the hostel, you are given 3 pin codes to nativgate yourself to your room, which is a good idea in theory but a pain if you've lost your code/or it doesn't work!

Overall great place, would definately recommend!

This is one hassle free hostel! The place is just parallel with Times Square. If you will be coming from the HKIA use the MTR and just go down at Causeway Bay Exit A. The hostel has no sign, just look for the Indian restaurant sign that says "Rang Mahal" (I am not sure with the first name of the restaurant)

A week before your flight, the staffs will send you 3 access codes to enter the hostel. One for the building, one for the hostel and another one for your room. If you will be arriving early or departing late; you can leave you baggage at the hostel. Just don't block the entrance to the other rooms or going in and out of the hostel. The rooms have towels, shampoo and bath soap so you won't need to bring any of these. The room was very clean, and you can call the staff if you want your room to be cleaned. Call early in the morning because the cleaning lady will be at your room at around 12 noon.

Definitely a great place to stay! :)

Room Tip: Stayed at Room 2 (2 single beds) Just bring out your things from the luggage at place it on the rack...
