I've booked to this hostel twice 2011 and 2012 thru internet and I must say that Ms. Fiona was very accommodating. Even her staff who is a Filipina was also helpful. Although the rooms and bathrooms were small, it was clean and no any foul odor. This is highly recommended for a budget traveler. I'll definitely comeback here! =)

Excellent location right smack in the center of Mongkok. While the building is old, the rooms are clean. The room size is small, but comparable to Japanese standards. But the bathroom is the size of a Japanese toilet. The shower head is right above the sink and toilet bowl, and the sink is too small to wash your face or...

I stayed here for two nights with my 14 year old son. The room was perfectly clean, adequate, and felt safe (the entrance also, which has a security person...although sometimes asleep ;) ; the tiny size was not a surprise to me having checked out the TA reviews. It was interesting to see the courtyard/walkways, etc. from the inside, but...

I stayed here with my husband and son. The hotel is extremely well located - in the heart of all the action. Being just a short walk from the Mong Kok MTR allowed us to reach all parts of Hong Kong with ease. The hotel reception desk is friendly and helpful. We stayed in a triple room which we found...

Good Location. Walking distance from Mongkok MTR and Ladies Steet. Building is old and dirty. Lift is small, can only fit 6-7 people w/o baggage and 4-5 with big baggages. The lady (daughter) who served me on departure was friendly. Room is small too. Just enough for rest and bath if you are spending most of your time outside shopping...

I stayed at a Quad room and a deluxe twin room during my trip. I'm not expecting much from the facilities for a budget accomodation, but I'd think it did not live up to the good review I've seen here so far. The Quad room on the 12th floor was too small for 4, with probably space for 1 luggage...

Booked this hostel through Hostelworld. Paid 10% deposit and balance was settled in HKD upon checked in. We actually emailed directly to Ah Shan Hostel to re-confirm our booking of 2 rooms for Deluxe Private Twin and they have also confirmed our booking via email. However, upon checked in, we were disappointed that they only have 1 room for Deluxe...

We stayed at A-Inn, another hostel under same owner of Ah Shan but in another floor. The room is very small for two, but this is very common in HK. However, the room is quite clean. The water heater is very old which i think it's the time for them to replace new one as it doesn't work very well,...

We arrived in MongKok at 3am and was surprised to find it abuzz with people! Perhaps it was because of lunar new year. The hostel is on the upper-floor of a residential building. There are a lot of other hostels in the building. We stayed in one other one and Ah-Shan was much better. Fiona was there during the day,...

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighbourhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
