“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

A clean, safe and comfortable accomodation. In a great location, close to the MTR. Wilson was very knowledgeable and helpful about things to do in Hong Kong. Never did get the TV to work. Plan on waking up early to turn on the hot water for your shower.
I would definitely suggest ear plugs for sleeping. The rain pelting down on the air conditioner at night was very noisy.

This guesthouse is clean and well located. However, the staff were cold and unfriendly Leaving at 9 am for breakfast was challenged by staff about my 10 am checkout time. I did not feel welcome and will not be returning. More friendly staff would attract second visits.

Perfect location on Hong Kong Island: Causeway Bay where life never stops! Rooms are separate by a locked door on the different floors . They are basic and regularly cleaned. In the corridors, you have access to a fridge, hot and cold water. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. It's not easy to find cheap accommodation in Hong Kong, in particular if you a solo traveller. It's a good combination of price and location. I stayed six nights and they stored one of my bags while I went travelling and came back.

Stayed for 8 nights. My room was cleaned everyday. Service was good and the counter guys always smile. Stayed at the triple room. Kinda small but cosy. Enough for 3 of us to chill and eat instant noodles every night as Hot water is only like 3 meters away from my room. Wifi connection is awesome too. Unbeatable price, easy booking. Easy access to the train, Causeway bay which is 3 minutes away. Recommended place!

Reading previous reviews (including one mentioned in an older edition of Lonely Planet), it seems that things have gone downhill in terms of amenities. Stayed in a double twin bed room on the 4th floor, had ants that attacked my backpack. Wireless worked only briefly, then stopped working all night. Stayed in a single room the following night (which they took longer than expected to clean), which had an airconditioning that would not cool; I suspect the AC was out of coolant. Tried to have the desk help me out with the AC, but he was unable to come up with a working remedy. Internet did work this time (hence I was able to post the review). Thankfully staff are still friendly. In a great location (causeway bay) and with reasonable rates, but they need to step up their maintenance to live up to other reviews.

Room Tip: single rooms are small

I've stayed here earlier this week as a solo backpacker checked in one of their single rooms.

Pros: Causeway Bay is pretty nice especially at night when all the neon lights come out. It is close to exit D1 of the MTR. Winda and the owners have been very helpful starting from the reservation up to checking out. If taking the airport express, you can opt to be dropped off and picked up from the nearby Excelsior. Price is totally unbeatable especially when I've seen similar accomodation at Chungking Mansions which cost more and are a bit dready.

Cons: Shower was hard to mix with the hot and cold controls. There was some kind of newspaper snuck in some kind of a hole where a lamp used to be which kinda ruined my reflective mood while staying at the ceiling. Tv wasnt working but they replaced it after being reported. Wifi wasnt working on my last night of stay.
