Alohas Hostel
Ranked #21 of 161 Specialty Lodging in Hong Kong
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We'd booked this hotel via agoda and we stayed in a double bedroom for 4 days in Hong Kong. There are some things worth to be praised and also some area to be improved.
First, the location. It is perfect because it just located right next to the Light Rail (MTR) station exit. And you won't be bored since there are tonnes of shops around you.

Second, about the room. Yes the room does have a bathtub which very surprised me. Well, you know most of the budget hotel room in Hong Kong is relatively small where you hardly can find any bathtub or even separate toilet bowl and basin. The room cleanliness is consider ok. But if you are fussy type you will find some hairs and wet carpet in front of the toilet annoyed you abit.

Third, about the services. check in progress took us about 20 minutes but luckily the staffs are friendly. If you tried to have your meals in Hong Kong local restaurant, you will experienced "not friendly attitude" from the waiter/ waitress. It is kind of good luck if you encounter Hong Kong people with patient and good attitude XD. Also, they sell the entrance ticket such as Ocean Park and Disney Land to you at with cheaper price compare to walk in price. And the wifi works perfectly well for me using both of my smartphone and Tab.

Generally, it is a worth to stay hotel if you are not a fussy and typical type of people.

We spent almost 8 nights at the hostel and we basically stayed 2 different double bed room. The room attached with bathroom. One of the double bed room equipped bigger bath room with bath tub. The standard bathroom is small. Location wise is good, 1 mins walk to Jordan MTR station. next to hostel have bakery / toast shop for breakfast. Nearby attraction like temple street is walking distance. You can get cosmetic stuff around there in Bonjour or Sasa. Reasonable price and cheap for perfume :)

I am from Singapore. And I agree this is a good price compared to the location. I got to spend one night only as I have other plans.
This hotel provides the flexibility and I look forwards for future stay.

My friends and I spent 4 nights at this hostel and it offers good value. Room is bit small but I had a clean room with wifi. I would recommend for a short-stay. Hostel staffs are friendly and willing to help with any questions. I would like to highlight that the hostel is nearby eateries such as the Australian Dairy Company, Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop and Temple street market.

I've been there for business meeting.

Although it's not the cheapest, we want a convenient place with clean & tidy. This one looks great and easy to go - yes, it is. The airport bus could go to their site directly (~1hr) and we only need 1 minute to walk to metro station.

It's a bit pack comparing with hotel (well, the hotel next to it almost 30% higher..) , yet, comparing with those guesthouse I have been, it's already the best - we've a table & chair to place the documents, notebook and snacks - so far, it's the only guesthouse I have been that come with that. I think the size is fit for 2 men.

After chat with their staff (Shirley!?), realized some of the rooms have bathtub. Would try that if I go there again with my wife.

Luckily that I entitled for the $1 SIM card offer. It helped me to save some roaming charges. Shirley also recommended some local foods nearby, the French toast was so great. Will try that next time. She also asked us if we need extra blanket and helped us to call taxi to airport. Really appreciate for their service.

It would be one of my top choices for the coming Hong Kong trip.

Room Tip: Their family room got 2 beds (1 Queen + 1 Single) + bathtub. If budget OK, could book that for twin...

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.

Quite a new hostel located on the 7th floor of an old building. Hostel has a fabulous location, jus 1 min walk from exit C1 of Jordan MTR. Room was clean but very small. Very near to famous eateries like Tsui Wah & Australian Dairy Co. Staffs were also helpful and we received a box of Godiva chocolates as Xmas gift when we checked in. However as we visited HK during winter, room was very cold. There seems to be gaps on windows which allows cold air from outside to enter the room.

Thanks Mikayla's feedback.

We have reviewed all windows and installed insulation material on few windows. Moreover, we have improved the comforters to double layers which will help to keep our guests warm.

Chatted with our guests. The issue did not happen again.

FYI - We do have extra blankets. Guests may ask our reception if they need one.
