I would not recommend this hostel to anyone. This place is cramp, dirty, un-kept and was unpleasant in all ways. There wifi barely works, and checking in was a hassle. I would say the only good thing about this hostel is its location which is on a busy area (Nathan RD right by a nice mall).

The room was clean and had really good wifi ( Floor 15 ). It was a bit hard to find the place but the location is very good. Near a lot of markets - including night market! I would recommend friends to stay here but it is not anything very special! The host was a little bit...speciall. I could def...

Had no idea what's coming for you. I and my friends were in a group trip so we decided to stay in the reasonable cost hotel. The staff ( both man and woman) didn't know to spell the word " service " but treated us like crap not customers. The owner didn't talk nice but always replied in a grumpy...

Service: Pretty terrible. One guy we asked for help getting into our room was a total jerk. Value: It's much cheaper than a hotel, but for the price of a triple or even a single room I would have rather stayed at an actual hotel or at the least a different hostel. Sleep Quality: In the triple room two of...

The prices are also very great ranging from 150 for a single(shared bathroom,to 200(Double,Ensuit).Make sure you haggle,they normally start at...

Honestly as this was a budget hotel we knew what to expect however.... My husband and I could not fit in the room with our luggage. We had to let one in close the door wait in the toilet, whilst the other one entered. We knew it was cheap but honestly the smallest double bed you have ever seen. We...

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.
