12 November 2010 Tom would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were amazing, they all spoke great English and were always happy, lively and smiling. Our room was clean, the washing/drying facilities are good and there is a communal kitchen area to eat takeout in/drink beer. DVD service and selection proved very popular with the guys I was with, loads of choice.

Disliked: Nothing major. Food was in true hostel style, overpriced and not served all day. The drinks at the bar were overpriced especially when you could go downstairs and buy a bigger (and stronger) beer nextdoor for a third of the price.

Liked: Short way to the EXPO, nice food places around

Disliked: We want to leave our luggage there during our check-out day. But they said it's not allowed during the EXPO because the chinese goverment prohibit, but we can check-out later. So we leave the luggage in the room and check out in the afternoon. When we want to check out they want that we pay half room-rate because of the late check out. After discussion we don't need to pay, but nobody told us before. And by the way one month before we stayed in same hostel and it was no problem to leave the luggage there.

Liked: Great place to stay if going to EXPO. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere with quite hard but ok beds and AC. Good food stalls close by!

Disliked: The hostel was a bit too quiet for us, with not much going on during the evenings. Also a bit far from downtown.

Family Holiday

15 August 2010

Liked: Location is next to MTR and in walking distance of EXPO.Good for individual budgettravelers.

Disliked: Not suitable for family with children. There are rooms without windows, which are not mentioned on the website. Notice this when making a booking. We had problems with a leaking airco. Problems were solved, but one of the staff was rude to my wife and just told us that if we didn't like the room then just go somewhere else, because they had enough customers to fill the room.

Liked: Great friendly staff that go out of their way to help guests. Room is clean and spacious. The common room is a nice to relax and meet travellers, with Internet, pool table and a bar, good place to start and end the day.

Disliked: Shared bathroom. Standing in the same spot brushing your teeth with four other strangers is not something Im accustomed to. But hey you might get a kick out of observing how others do their stuff.
