I'd always choose Mei Ho House whenever I return to Hong Kong at least once a year. The double rooms are spacious and clean. Service staff are pleasant. Plenty of options for breakfast. Our room was also decorated with vintage icons. But the best part of it is that it's really affordable. It's not located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui or Central, but very well connected by bus and train. Plenty of eateries and bustle in Sham Shui Po, and lots of discounted tech around. Takes half an hour to get to both. A20 goes directly from the airport to Sham Shui Po, although my partner and I haven't been able to locate the return bus back to the airport. Anyone has any clues?
The room was very clean. Staff spoke good english and was very helpful! At breakfest you could choose from 5 menues and tee or coffee. One of which was a simple sandwich with meat an cheese. The hotel is 5 min away from MTR station. Excellent value for money!
Katherine and I stayed here for a few nights in September. We'd booked a double room through Booking.com and were very pleased with the whole experience. The Room was a very good size and had all we needed for our stay. Breakfast was included. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. The Hostel is a bit of a trek from the harbour but we were happy to walk everywhere and to be honest you will see a lot more of what Hong Kong is really like if you stay above ground. That said, there are two Subway stations within a short walk. The hostel does have it's own canteen if you want to eat there or you will find plenty of places to nearby. All in all, a good experience!
I had a room in fifth floor in which things seem normal. Local TV channels well received, beddings and decorative old Hong Kong items look clean and tidy. However, one of legs start itching after my stay, it almost forced me to find a skin doctor. By the way, water in the bathroom is quite weak. One interesting thing was that all guests had to return all begging items before checking out.
Last month I have stayed in Mei Ho House Hostel. Good community area good size double room, clean, bed quite rough has no bedside electric plug Limited cooking facilities in the kitchen When you check out, you still have to take all the pillow cases, duvet covers, bed sheets to the reception. They said this is a way to promote hostel culture. They charged almost the same price as a 3 star plus hotel for a double room.
Mei Ho House, a youth hostel in Hong Kong, is good place to stay for a few days. Almost perfect, but you must bring ear plugs, a medical certificate stating that you cannot sleep with closed windows and/or some tools. Our room was well-lit, clean and spacious, with a nice bathroom and an electric kettle. The bed was very comfortable. Wi-Fi connection was excellent. Breakfast, admittedly a very spartan affair, was included. Not to worry, there are several supermarkets in the area and you can use the communal kitchen. We simply got take-away food from a busy restaurant just down the road and had it in the courtyard. There is also a hill right next to the hostel, so do walk up there and enjoy your food with some beautiful views of Kowloon. What detracts from the pretty picture is piped music in most common areas. In addition, the building is poorly sound-proofed; we could hear other guests and furniture being shifted in a room above even at 3 in the morning. The staff were all very understanding and of course very unhelpful: unfortunately there was no room available for us to move to the top floor. Worst of all: the windows were locked and could not be opened. Policy or something, they explained. So — if you are claustrophobic or simply detest AC like I do — make sure you bring your tools or a medical certificate to get a window opened. Failing that, for ‘fresh’ air you can always jam a towel in the door frame. Almost perfect.…
We stayed here for a month in a twin room. It is clean, safe and very quiet too. It was also large in comparison to other hotel rooms we have stayed in the city. Our room overlooked a small park. Breakfast was nice each day and there is a vegetarian option of muesli and soya milk. It is walking distance from three MTR stations. The nearest being Sham Shui Po and Shep Kip Mei but it is about 10 minutes from Prince Edward too. Very central to where we needed to be. We would stay here again.
There is a museum in the hostel about Hong Kong public housing, especially in Mei Ho House. We enjoyed the museum and visited it every day. The room was big and the bed was ok. We had to bring all the linens to the lobby when we checked out, but we didn't mind it. The breakfast was too small, though, especially for a growing teenager. The location was good, near markets and there were lots to see and buy.
Terrible hotel (in fact a hostel). Nothing works well. The air conditioning and the shower drain did not work and I need to move to another room, which had other issues. In the new room the toilette and shower was not working as well. The breakfast is "horrible". There is no room service and at the end of the stay, you need to take the towels and bed sheets down to the hotel laundry otherwise they don’t allow you to leave the hotel. I definitely will not get back to this hotel and I do not recommend it, even considering the low price.
First time stay in Sham Shui Po as I normally stay at Mong Kok. I like the hostel, the room size is big with big window and superb firm bed. The breakfast is not very good as they only give you cup or coffee/tea plus three choice of breakfast....not even buffet style. The bathroom is good size and the shower pump is good. So I have breakfast in McDonalds everyday. Love to be back for third time in HK as I love HK. Sham Shui Po is good area with many local markets that open everyday. There is a hill view of the city behind the hostel. I would come back again.
