A bed and a location Mar 28, 2016
Tbh, i didnt sleep here because it was my last night and I went partying - i just left my stuff in the dorm.

Positive: location, cool people you can meet there, free coffee and tea each morning next to reception, free wifi

Neutral: key deposit of 100HKD, deposit for adapter 20HKD

Negative: i know HK lacks of space but the location of dorms are confusing. Some of them are on the next door (C entrance) but when you get to the floor (here it was the 7), you will mix the door. Meaning, that floor has other doors, people's houses, and the hostel's is a specific one - memorize your door (along eith entrance code downstairs!) - I had to go up and down between entrance C and reception to ask the reception lady, like 3 times, if my floor was right and then FINALLY she told me the door (other ladies in reception are not that agile to understand that building is confusing).

Also, no locker in the rooms to keep your stuff, so take valuable stuff with you (i had to carry my docs, of course, plus my apple watch the entire night). If there is any other place to keep it, i dont know since i didnt ask or spend time in the hostel sleeping.

Apart from these incovenient things, if comfort is not your priority, i suggest this place but only if you want just something at last minute and real cheap and convenient!!

I paid around 17€ that night.

It's not hostel it's an shared apartment. Jan 06, 2012
Well This is not a hostel for backpacker. It's shared apartment. I was very disappointed and sad to see this is an apartment and 8 people are sharing a small room with one toilet and bathroom. It was winter time and water was very cold. I booked this hostel for 3 night but didn't say there. I moved to another hostel. But Location is very nice. There are so many shopping center near and many resto. are there

Brilliant location for a decent price Jan 18, 2011
If you want to stay on Hong Kong Island instead of Kowloon, Hong Kong Hostel is the place for you. It's in an excellent location: near Sogo, directly opposite the agnès b. cafe and in the same building as Fashion Walk. Just a corner away from Causeway Bay MTR station too!

Cleanliness is decent, but the room I got was rather old-looking – I assume all the rooms are similar. The bed was rock-hard, but I guess you can't really quibble for the price you're paying and the prime location.

You'll be asked to pay a HKD100 deposit upon check-in, which is refunded upon checking out. I didn't see any real common area like you'd expect in some other hostels, so didn't get to interact with other hostel guests. If that's a must-have for you, then I'd advise you to go elsewhere. If you're looking for a relatively affordable place in a great location, this is it.

Very bad hostel! Apr 25, 2011
Im going to try and warn people NOT to stay here!

After a year of travelling many countries, this hostel was by FAR the worst!

VERY unfriendly, unhelpful sketchy staff! They do not care for your custom, very rude, do not care about speaking with any form of manors or hospitality. Infact they are hardly ever in the (so called) reception area.

This hostel also runs under a number of different names which prevents bad reviews from being published.

The hostel also has a legal battle going on which according to the letter downstairs has been on going and status the hostel is technically running illigal..

I would not recommend the stay, the staff, the vile beds, the showers which dont work but i do recommend the location!

Great Location!!! Dec 06, 2008
Hong Kong Hostel, located in what they call Fashion Walk, is an ideal place to stay in HK if you're on a budget (like I was). The location is excellent, only a few steps from the nearest MTR station (Causeway Bay) and some really nice stores. Basically, everything is just an MTR ride away. The area is also clean and quiet at the right time of the day, so all good!

I stayed in a dorm room with four beds (two were occupied when I checked in) and an attached bathroom. At HKD150, it's the cheapest in the hostel. The dorms are located at the second floor of Kingston Building, which is just across the street from Paterson Building where the front desk and the other rooms are (single, double, triple). Our room was clean and warm enough, and the bathroom as well (although colder than the bedroom because of the windows, I think). Not a big fan of the shower, though - mixing hot and cold water's never my forte :D

To get inside each building, you would need to enter a security code, so I would advise that you make an advanced booking to avoid the trouble of waiting for a resident to go in. By the way, the room keys come with a HKD100 deposit, which make sure you get back when you check out. There's free internet, but no free breakfast.

The staff was accommodating enough, although only a couple of them speak English. They also sell call cards for international calls; calling a Hong Kong number is free. The phone is in the same room where the two computers for internet use are, in Paterson Building.

Check out their website for more information.

This hostel is in prime location, directly oppostie Jordan station in Kowloon, giving easy access to Hong Kong island. I stayed in a triple room which was nice. Shower wasnt great but the room was clean and the staff at first seemed nice. We enquired about kitchen facilities and half way through our stay a fridge was brought in and a new more powerful shower fitted. This was good but should really have been done before we got there saving us inconvenience seen as we had booked months in advance.

Unfortunately the staff showed their true colours when we wanted to stay one more night and they tried to rip us off completely. I tried to reason with the staff but\the supervisior was plain rude and ended up hanging up the phone on me! I rang back and said that wasnt acceptable from staff and she didnt care. I also highlighted how the staff fitting the shower walked in on my friend half naked without knocking, and she said 'so.' I was very disappointed by their manners.
