I must admit, I have not stayed at a hostel in a long time. But hotels in Hong Kong are getting exorbitant, and Hong Kong Hostel seemed like a good and inexpensive alternative. The location of the hostel is the best thing about it...in the center of Causeway Bay's bustling shopping area and a 2 minutes' walk to the MTR subway station.
Unfortunately I was not impressed with the condition of the hostel itself. The lobby was fine, the rooms were fairly clean but sparse. There was no heat and only a light duvet, which in HK in the winter can be lacking, and I found myself shivering while sleeping.
I had paid a bit extra and booked a 3 bed female only dorm room, and when I arrived from a night of HK fun, I went into my room, and there was a man sleeping in one of the beds. When I went to the front desk to complain, they said a girl is staying there and has a guy friend that is sick so he will stay the night. They asked if it was ok with me, but when I expressed that it wasn't, they had no alternative options, and didn't offer anything to make up for this issue.
All in all, if you need a place to spend the night, you can do it here...it is one of the cheapest deals I have found in HK, but it comes at a price. It is a good reason to stay out and have a night on the town in HK!
