#2 of 241 in Hong Kong

The Mahjong is Hong Kong's hippest hostel, centrally located in an authentic Hongkie neighbourhood, superbly connected by over 30 bus routes to the city's hustling bustling attractions, and just a stone's throw from its renowned mountain & coastal charms. All buses stop right outside The Mahjong - we are just 10-15 mins from Tsim Sha Tsui & Mong Kok, and only 25-30 mins from Causeway Bay & Central. The Mahjong neighbourhood is a foodie's paradise and still a best kept secret amongst locals. So come stay with us, and experience Hong Kong as the locals do!

The first and only hostel in Hong Kong to have a large social lounge and custom built bunk beds/pods that maximize privacy with personal light & electric sockets, keycard security locker, and privacy screen. Thick 6" hotel grade mattresses and fluffy pillows guarantee you a good night's rest. Designer touches around the hostel showcase Hong Kong heritage and culture.

Clean and staff are helpful. It is a Hostel, so it’s rustic. You may need sleeping tablets as rooms are well lit with safety exit signs, so bright during night, and there is much water movement in down pipes, so can be noisy. There is a picture below of our room.

Decent stay. stayed in 8 man dorm. Pros: small safe, reading ligth, poweroutlet and privacy curtain. Daily cleaning. Bathroom, toliets and shower was clean. Enough shower and toliets. Had soap, shampoo and towels. Free towel for each bed also, which is nice. staff was nice and friendly. Cons: Lacking of atmosphere at the hoste,not the best location, far from underground. But plenty of buses just outside. would try to stay closer to metro or Victoria harbour next time.

Stayed in a mixed dorm (10 beds) with shared bathroom. Everything is a little cramped for space, but so is everything in Hongkong! The common area is very nice and open, but the real plus is the very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff who were a great help in navigating HK and staying ahead of any possible trouble in connection with the current Protests. Also, the Location is great for Kowloon!

Love the surroundings of this hostel, so many local eateries and local residents around here. Not a very commercial or touristy area like TST which is overcrowded or HK island which is expensive and cramped. There are many buses that connects u to everywhere u want to go to. Toilet is clean and spacious. Mixed dorm is smaller than expected but nicely furnished with wood finishing and even privacy blinds. Good hostel vibe as lounge area is comfy. Staff is very helpful and gave good suggestions and information :)
