I was visiting with 2 friends and booked a private 3 bed room with ensuite. We stayed for 5 nights. There was 1 single bed and 1 bunkbed. The room and bathroom was very clean, had A/C in the room as well as soap/shampoo. (You will need to pay a deposit to loan a towel). Staff are very helpful and...

We stayed there for a night between flights. This hostel is pretty much about providing a cheap room to stay overnight in an apartments house. The office can be connected quickly via WhatsApp, which was very helpful as we arrived very late and had some problems with navigating. When we arrived, the reception was friendly. While the house itself is...

A bery bad experience with this hostel. The lady owner is very grumpy and the room is nothing like the shown in the website. The elevator is only two for the whole building which make you move very slowly. The only good thing about this place is location. In fron of lady market and near mongkok st.

This place is located opposite ladies' market and within 3-4 minutes walking distance to Mongkok MTR station. There is a convenient store and a lot of restaurants nearby. The owner and his daughter were friendly and helpful. The only downside is the water pressure was very low and the hot water turned cold after a few minutes. Towels are not...

We checked in at the 14th floor and got a room on the 8th. The twin room with private bathroom was big enough for two, as long as you don't expect to be able to swing a cat in it. Our backpacks fit under the bed, there's a TV, AC, hanger and a small desk. The bathroom is narrow but...

Pros:Good location, close to subway also. Cons: Our room looked nothing like the website. Very run down with mould. Cockroaches! Awful bathroom with broken shower and no sliding door or curtain so water went everywhere. Staff weren't very helpful/nice and English is poor. Lockers are only big enough for a small bag. Building is constantly busy and it's very noisy....

A bit difficult to find. My room was simple but everything I needed. Bed and a small bathroom with toilet, shower and sink. Friendly staff. Strong wifi. The location is very good. Restaurants, markets and Metro nearby. The elevator is often full so need to plan 5 minutes extra. I will use this hostel for my next visit to Hong...

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.
