“Still Good for second time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is my second stay at Yiufai and it was perfect like the first time! Budget hostel with good condition room ( for Hongkong Life cost), Raymond very helpful, and his assistant as well, they also sale ticket to The Peak, Ngongping which is cheaper if you go to the ticket counter, and save lots of time.

The room is clean everyday, the housekeeper so nice ( not like the ugly laundry lady at ground floor) .Room is small but good for the price standard in HK
The negative thing is only the WiFi very weak in my room,and the elevator in the building, it's too small, with capacity for 4 person, so that's a big annoying !

Used to work in Hongkong , and come back to visit HK many time, it's like my second home, don't know when can i come back again, but for sure , after 2 year, and Yiufai still my first choice cause of good location, budget and convenient..( MTR, Bus to Airport, Shopping center)!

Booked for 4 pax & stayed here last Aug.28-31, 2012. (2 twin rooms ensuite)

Pros:
1. Great location, friendly & helpful staff, no fuss/ hassle booking, typical HK room size. clean. 2. Good decision to avail of their tickets to theme parks & other tourist attractions (discounted price & save's time from lining-up buying tickets esp. during peak tourist season).

Cons:
1. Reception area's a bit confusing the first time (once you get-off the lift, you have to turn left, walk to the end & turn left again).
2. We also had to transfer from 5th floor, to the 10th floor on the 2nd night but atleast they brought up our luggages.

Tip:
1. If arriving late at night or after midnight, better call the number posted @ their door rather than wait for the staff to respond to the doorbell.
2. Book way in advance since they are usually fully booked

...will definitely stay here again : )

Room Tip: Rooms on the 5th floor are bigger & with newer furniture than what we had on the 10th floor

Stayed there on 2011 for about 3 nights.
I booked a double private room with ensuite bathroom, but they gave me a double room with an extra single bed. The room is very small (typical Hong Kong room size), and the facilities is also quite nice with wifi internet access, tv, shower with hot water, and drinking water too. For me the room is not as clean as what I imagine, the room is old and i found out several small insect in my room. But that was okay.

Golden Crown Court lift is also quite troublesome, it's very small.

The owner, Mr. Raymond is very nice, and really helpful. Every time I need help, he always helped me. Including when i have a problem when my baggage on the plane is missing. I gave Mr Raymond phone number to the airline staff, and when my baggage is found, Mr. Raymond tell me about that.

The location of Yiu Fai is excellent, if you want to take MTR, it's right next to the building, and the road (Nathan Road) is very busy and full of activities, but you can found almost everything there, from food to electronics to anything you need.

I'm also taking a ferry to Macau, the ferry terminal is also just a few minutes walk from the building.

Overall, it's nice experience to stay here, especially if are looking for a place in nice location.

Our double room was comfi with space for few luggage. Though bath was small, it worked well contrary to many scary reviews of other guesthouse. Reception is a bit difficult to locate as once out of lift, you need to turn left and walk all the way to the back. Only 2 lifts serve whole building so need to wait a bit go up or down. They also operate another inn on 5th floor; Hao's Inn. In fact there are numerous inns/guesthouse in Golden Crown Court.

Room Tip: If you are 6 footer, double bed might not fit. Triple is as good as double with luggage space. Beds...

Stayed in the guesthouse this January with family of small children (3 and 5) for 2 weeks. Reasonable price, very good location and friendly staff. As really difficult to find a place for 4, it was very good deal and would recommend it any time:)

The guesthouse is very well located on the main street in Kowloon right next to the metro station and shops. You can walk to the star ferry in about 10 minutes from the hotel. The rooms in the hotel are very small but they make great use of the space to include the bed, desk and bathroom, with still enough room to fit the suitcases in. They also include a kettle in the room.
The air conditioning in the room worked fine as did the shower. Best of all the room was spotlessly clean and was clearly cleaned every day. The staff in the hostel were also very friendly and helped us out with anything we needed.
The guesthouse does not offer any breakfast but there are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby. One slight annoyance with the hotel was having to catch to lift back and forth every day – it was usually busy and you had to wait a long time to access it. Generally though an economical and convenient choice for travelers to Hong Kong.

I stayed there for 4 days, overall it was good, the owner raymond is very friendly, initially i booked a single room but when i reached there , it was not available so he gave me a 3 bedded room which is pretty huge for one person. The room i stayed does not have bathroom attached so i have to walk out to take the bath which is not a big problem here. The room is clean and the aircon is cool, the only downside is the TV, it only has 5 channels. It even has a phone in the room which you can make local calls for free.
The location of this hostel is superb, it is very close to MTR and the big shopping malls are at the door steps. Everyday (except sunday), you can get the free newspaper at the MRT entrance which is good.
The reception counter is always no one there so when you stay there, please make sure you lock your room door at all time as we won't know who will be coming into the hostel without notice ! The building security is good, there is a security guard post near the lifts areas and the lifts have CCTV installed.
overall, i like this hostel as it is cheap and located in a superb location!
