4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

New Yiu Fai guest house is located on Nathan Road where it is pretty much accessible to anywhere and everything either by a short walk or by MTR. It is located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. The "New" Yiu Fai is a newly renovated guesthouse on the 6th Floor.
The room small but clean and we have to manage our luggage without blocking our way. The Bathroom also small with a small separated shower cabinet.

Water Dispenser is located at the hallway, so we can refill our water bottle whenever we want. They also sells discount tickets to places of attraction ticket like disneyland, Madam tussauds, ocean park etc. They also have discounted transport fare for booking of van to go to the airport.
In Summary

-Helpful and friendly staff.
-Good WIFI speed .
-Daily housekeeping.
-Availability of discount tickets for places of attraction as well as Ferry tickets to Macau.
- Basic amenities - flat TV, water heather, hair dryer, air-conditioning.
-Ideal loacation - near with MTR station
I am happy with our stay here for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom for 4 persons for price we pay.

Room Tip: Switch on the water heater at least 5 - 10 minutes ahead before taking a bath otherwise, may end up...

Yiu Fai Guest House Review:

First of all let me tell you that there are two different Yiu Fai Guest House. The first one is the Yiu Fai Guesthouse as the owner says they are the original. The second one is of course the "New Yiu Fai Guesthouse". My experience started from the reception. I booked for Yiu Fai but I ended up going to the wrong reception which is the New Yiu Fai . The personnel in New Yiu Fai was very accommodating, we started chatting until we found out that I didn't book in their guesthouse but with Yiu Fai from the next door. So, I transferred to Yiu Fai reception and told the personnel about the mistake I made from the other guesthouse. He was a little snob and not accommodating at all. At that moment I said to myself I should have just booked with New Yiu Fai.

The Room.

I booked for a triple room ensuite for 3 nights. Honestly, I wasn't expecting anything fancy as I knew it's a budget hostel. Inside the tiny room was a double bed and a single bed. There's a hair dryer, TV (without cable),wall mirror, tiny sink and an electric kettle. Inside the bathroom was another tiny sink. The heater was okay. There's no cabinet/closet for luggage so we ended up putting our luggages under the bed. Rubber slippers were also provided. I don't think they clean or replace beddings every day. I could tell from the wrinkled bedding itself that they didn't replace it at all not even once during our 3-night stay. Small elevator. I think it can only accommodate 3-4 persons per ride.

Location.

Another reason why I booked for this hostel was the location. It's very close to some attractions. You can walk going to Avenue of Star, 1881 Heritage, Star Ferry Pier, Clock Tower, Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and etc. Fast food is in every road like KFC, Mc Donalds, Yoshinoya, 7 eleven, Cafe de Coral, Tsui Wah restaurant is just a few steps from the hostel. There's the CK mall and Sasa for your "kikay" needs. In case you forgot to bring toiletries 7-eleven is in every corner. If you want to go to Central for The Peak and Ocean Park you have to options, either ride the ferry or mtr. MTR entrance and exit is also just a few steps away from the hostel. A21 bus stop is just across the street. Overall our stay with Yiu Fai Guesthouse was convenient.

I booked triple bedroom for our 3 nights stay at Hong Kong. The room is about 12 sqm, but well equipped with hair dryer and good air conditioned. The bed is comfortable to sleep on. Free wifi connection is very fast. Bathroom is very clean, towels changed everyday, and liquid soap provided. Location very strategic next to Tsim Tsa Tsui MTR station exit A2 and D1. Raymond, the owner of Yiu Fai Guest House also sell discounted ticket for Disneyland, Ocean Park and Peak Tram.
If you looked for a cheap place to sleep in the middle of Kowloon and in good condition, this place is very recommended. We enjoyed our stay here and will be back here for our next vacation to Hong Kong.

We booked double room with ensuite bathroom.
Booking was hassle free since Raymond reply our e-mail promptly. They required one day rental fee as booking fee through PayPal.

The Location is very convenient in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. The Entrance between Standard Chartered and Citibank, you might be missed the entrance so if you pass by the Citibank just step back and watch the entrance for entrance Golden Crown Court
The Guest House is less than 5 mins walking distance through exit D1 Tsim Sha Tsui MTR and 15 mins walking distance to China Ferry Terminal if you are going to Macau.
The Bus stop to Airport (bus number A21) just opposite the building.

The room is clean although small but we can manage to put our luggage without blocking our way.
Bathroom also small but not that type of shower over toilet.
The only complaint is the very thin wall, this make you can hear someone step along the hallway or people talking in the other room and the shower heater need to wait for few minutes to be warm, It is better to turn on the heater first and wait for about 5 minutes or else you will get cold water.

They provide water in table near reception desk, so you can refill your bottle whenever you want.
They also selling cheaper attraction ticket like disneyland, madam tussauds, ocean park etc you can check the price when booking your room and buy directly when you arrived there.
We bought all the ticket from them even Ferry ticket to Macau.

One of the good things about the guesthouses on Nathan Road is that it is pretty much accessible to everything.The "New" Yiu Fai is a newly renovated guesthouse on the 6th Floor and the contact person is Kenny.The website was very informative and answered most of our queries.They also own the Golden Crown Guesthouse on the 5th Floor.The "other" Yiu Fai on the 5th Floor has a different office?
A DIY(do it yourself) itinerary is easy through their website.What to ride? Alternate routes...even discounted tickets/vouchers.
Though we got the Octopus cards at the airport.Most of the tickets we bought at the guesthouse.
For those who need a decent place to sleep on a tight budget, I would recommend this place.
