In Summary

Simplicity & comfort is at the core of this hostel/hotel. The rooms (some dorms, some private with ensuite) are clean, simple and modern. Staff are cheerful & helpful and breakfast and wifi is included in the low room rates.

The Good

A comfy common area with TV and free tea & coffee, a quiet & leafy setting and a fantastic rooftop terrace with a shower pool to splash about in.

The Not-So-Good

The walk uphill is pleasant, but tiring. The rooms are a bit plain. Some rooms don’t have windows.

In Summary

The rooms are large (particularly by Hong Kong standards), well designed, modern, well equipped, sound-proofed, clean & comfortable and really excellent value. Some rooms have balcony’s while others offer great views of the local neighbourhood.

The Good

We loved the hot, power shower, free Wifi and spaciousness in the room. The rooftop running track is awesome!

The Not-So-Good

A 30 minute MTR ride to the sights but the hotel and local area more than makes up for this.

In Summary

A beautiful & unique hotel, complemented by brilliant staff, lots of included amenities and a perfect location. Rooms are spacious, bright, clean and nicely furnished. Public areas are simply beautiful.

The Good

The rain shower was excellent. Staff are really eager to please. The included breakfast is plentiful and frankly superb. Rates are very low indeed.

The Not-So-Good

The free Wifi was a bit unreliable. Otherwise, we’re struggling to find anything we didn’t like.

About Our Partners

We select our partners really carefully to ensure they meet our high standards. All of our partners offer flexibility, price or booking guarantees and great customer service. We’re happy to recommend them because we use them ourselves.

Despite our endorsement, the decision to place a booking with one of our partners is entirely yours and, as much as we’d like to, cannot accept any responsibility in the unlikely event something goes wrong. In the event you do find yourself in a fix, get in touch with the partner directly who we hope will be keen to rectify things for you.
