We stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. The best aspect of this hostel is its brilliant location. As soon as you step out of the building you are on Nathan Road and it is very close to Jordan MTR station exit C1. It is also close to nearby eateries such as the Australian Dairy Company, Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop and Temple street market. Mongkok is within walking distance of the hostel.
We stayed in the twin room with two single bunk beds. We though the room was quite small and cramped. It had one window which did not offer much light. The beds itself were ok, they were quite clean, but too short for a 6ft person. You can also get new clean towels everyday. The bathroom is tiny - the toilet, sink and shower are all cramped into a very small room. You have to shower over the toilet. The worst part was that the bathroom smelled really bad. The ventilator fan didn't seem to work, in fact it seemed to blow some other rooms air INTO ours. I would not recommend staying in the twin rooms because of its size and bathroom.
There are a number of other rooms that we had a quick peek at as they were vacant. The deluxe double rooms or family rooms were a little bigger, were well lit and their bathrooms were reasonable - these rooms were much better than our own! If you book this hostel, you should try for these rooms if they are affordable. The place is manned by one person usually and they are very helpful and speak good English. The hostel seems safe because of their presence and there is not alot of human traffic in the building.
Correspondence was via email. They were very quick to reply and booking the accommodation was a breeze.
Overall, we felt that for the room that we got, it was a tad expensive for a hostel considering we got better accommodation at a hotel for the same price later in HK trip on HK island.
