Tin Tong backpacker
Ranked #264 of 721 Hotels in Hong Kong
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here in March with my girlfriend. Booked it after reading bad things online about Chungking Mansions and Hong Kong seems a little short on backpacker options compared to most major cities.
Anyway this place was perfect for us. It's an apartment style hostel and kind of open plan but rarely felt crowded. There is also one private room which looked small but nice. Met some really nice people here including Kit, the owner.
The area is much more local and authentic than the main tourist areas of the city and it's only 100metres to the metro. It's a punishing climb to the 9th floor but the views make it worthwhile and the roof terrace is a great place to hang out in the evenings.
If I come back to Hong Kong I will definitely stay here again.

We went here in October 2012 and had a really good time. There`s a living room with bunk beds, you can make your own coffee & tea and the WIFI connection is perfect. There is a small shared bathroom.

It`s on the top floor of a tall building without elevator, so be prepared to climb some stairs.
On the plus side it has a great outside roof terrace, here you can drink a beer and enjoy the nice view.

Don`t expect it to be luxorious in any way, but it`s a real backpackers experience. It`s in the middle of an older shopping area, nice market right outside the door and a one minute walk to subway station Sham Shui Po.
