“Affordable in great location”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Stayed in the harbour view rooms which offer a fantastic view and a comfortable, clean room at a very affordable price, Location of the hotel is excellent in walking distance of many attractions and close to the MTR station. My only complaint would be that internet is not included in the price and even after paying extra for it the wifi did not work reliable and could only be used on one device.

Finally writing some revews and the best first! First we stayed at the YHA Sydney Roacks (fabulous) and then this place. Never would have heard of them if not for the TA forum so thanks again to everyone who contributes.
This hotel is in a great location, next to the Pensinsula with rooms $500.+! Actually it is in a slightly better location.
We upgraded to a harbour view room, defintiely worth it if you can swing it. We arrived in our room about five minutes before the light show started. What a welcome to Hong Kong.
I was travelling with my DH but would have been happy here if I had been on my own. So any of you ladies out there hesitatinf, I am early 6os, female and I loved it. So ignore the name nad book here, unless you are the Peninsula type and have that kind of budget then go next door. LOL
First morning breakfast upstairs at the buffet, excellent choice and lovely view. Next two mornings at the main floor restaurant, also good. When you check in they give you some discount tickets, remember to use them.
Restaurants also available for luch and dinner but we didn't eat there then.
Great location, easy walk to the ferries, stroll along the waterfront etc.
No complaints

Room Tip: Choose harbour view if you can. Always something to watch out yur window.

I have dithered as to whether I would write a report on the YMCA mainly because I always stay here whenever I am in HKG and publishing anything here, kind of "lets the cat out of the bag" as to what a great locale/place this is..
I know people who have stayed here back in the 1950's ... and would not stay anywhere else..
I think the biggest negative in some people's mind is the "YMCA" .. however, you could not be more surprised! The hotel was renovated several years ago ... new lobby, etc. however, to be honest the hotel is still not flashy, like many others in HKG ... BUT, the Y makes up with in with a fantastic locale... we always stay in harbour view rooms. My only personal issue, the hotel is dry; fortunately there are several great supermakets nearby, with plenty of good choices for those who like a drink! Plus you always have your duty free! Also lots of restaurants close. My "best of all".. drinks in your room while you watch Symphony of Lights every night. The Y provides the absolute best views along the waterfront of HKG Island. Now to the hotel staff, they are wonderful ... always smiling and polite and helpful. Breakfast on the 4th flood terrific value in you want the buffet, however, I always go with a-la-cart. The laundry is good value... I have stayed at many other hotels in HKG, going back to 1971, however, I only stay in one now - the YMCA Salisbury Road ... that is the best recommendation I can give

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a harbour view room .... worth it!!

Some are surprised that this is, in fact, an excellent hotel on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong, within walking distance of the Star Ferry. It has a variety of rooms to suit all pockets. The larger rooms on the high floors offer excellent facilities and a good (partial) view over the harbour. You can see the laser light show from here every evening at 8pm. There is a self-service cafe on the ground floor and a good restaurant on the fourth floor, serving excellent breakfasts with a good view over the harbour to Central Hong Kong. Prices, while not cheap, compare more than favourably with the smarter hotells of Central and Kowloon. The location is excellent, with ferry, buses, MTR and the Airport Express all easily accessible.

I've stayed here 3 times now - in 2001, 2003 and 2011. Everytime has been terrific! The rooms are in need of a redo (they redid the lobby and common areas between 2003 and 2011, but the rooms are the same and on the small side), but they are clean, comfortable and an incredible bargain for their location! It is located right near the Star Ferry, near great shopping, near a MTR station, and if you get a harbor view room, you cant beat the views! The breakfast buffet is great - good selections and fresh. And I splurged for the buffet seafood dinner for myself and my two younger children in 2011, and we had a wonderful time with great food. The staff was very friendly and seemed delighted to have two girls (6 & 9) with good manners enjoying an "adult" experience. The next time I think I would splurge on one of their family or harbor view suites just to have the extra room, especially since the price is such a relative bargain. My only complaint - no surprise - is that you have to book the rooms so far in advance as the secret is now out what an incredible bargain this is!

Great hotel with wonderful view of light/sound display at 8 p.m. from harbor view room on 16th floor. Easy transportation from airport via speed rail and free hotel bus. Good breakfast! You can't ask for more!

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view room -- 16th floor is best.
