“Pandora after 80s”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Hostal based in a few flats in the same central HK building. Great view of the skyline from the common room. Friendly atmosphere.
But.... Be careful when you book rooms- we booked a double room and were stuffed into what was basically a cupboard. People in dorms had a better deal than we did.I had to climb over my partner to go to the bathroom at night and I had to leave my suitcase outside because there was simply no space for it in the room.
We asked to change to a bigger room, and moved our stuff, but the owners moved it back to the cupboard again (!) allegedly because they had let the room to someone else and because they had said we could use another single room to leave our stuff. Then, it turned out that the people they had let the bigger room to were not a couple, they were two single guys forced to sleep in a double bed, while we, a couple, were supposed to use the two tiny single rooms! Because of moving our stuff around so much, I lost one of my shoes :-(
On a practical note, their kitchen doesn't have ANYTHING in it- people were eating their breakfast cereal with one, shared spoon and having to take turns!

Room Tip: Be very clear that, if you are a couple or even two friends sharing, you will not accept the tiny cu...

I stayed at the Pandora for 3 days in the middle of August and I can definitely recommend this place for travellers. Great view from the common room, around 5-8 minutes to the Causeway Bay MTR, and really friendly stuff!

After reading so many bad stories about hostels in Hong Kong I found this little gem. Although the rooms were very small, but I think all hostel rooms are small in Hong Kong, the stay was great. The view over the water is terrific and just sat down at night watching. I also met some great people. Definitely recommendable.

I has a really nice time in Hong Kong, just because of this place! Ronny is awsome!
And you'll find nice people there also.
If you'll like to meet people is great! If you want to just sleep and go out, i wouln't recomend it.

Enjoy

I really enjoyed my stay here! The location was great, and the directions they gave to find the hostel were spot on, though it is a little tricky to find. The staff was really friendly, and I was upgraded for free to the single room during my first night, just because it was available. On the other nights, I stayed in a 6-bed dorm. The dorm was very comfortable, and there were great little curtains that you could pull across for privacy.
There were also two laptops for guests to use, and a great lounge area with couches, a TV, and a really great view. My only issue was the sometimes it was hard to find a staff member if you need to talk to them for any reason.
I would certainly recommend this hostel, and if I am in Hong Kong again, I will stay there again.

Hey there!

The hostel is located in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island. It can be reached by MTR (blue line) and the station is also called Causeway Bay. The exit is D1. From the metro station its just a 5 minute walk. The hostel itself is located in a 13-story building and is hard to find. There is only one little sign at the doorbell. However, directly on the opposite is a real estate agency. The access is from Cannon Street, not Gloucester Road as stated in the information.

But once you arrive, it's a really great value. I had a 6 bed-room with 2 x 3 story bunk beds which were quite comfortable. The view is simply amazing since there is a direct view on Victoria Harbor - wow! There is a typical Hong Kong bathroom, i.e. the toilet is integrated in the shower or vice versa, depending how you see it. Nevertheless, it's clean and fully equipped.

The staff is very helpful and can give you advise anytime. There's free WIFI and free coffee available.

Just around the corner there are 7-11 shops, small diners and restaurants. If you want to go shopping, Causeway Bay is also the place to be.

Overall: 4 out of 5 stars since I had some difficulties finding it the first time. But then it is has been a great experience. Have fun!

Room Tip: They have a "special" room for two which has a great view on the harbor.
