|I was saying that the hot water did not last long enough during my last stay & I think they had fixed it; it's much better!
As I mentioned before, this is one of the best hostel that I have stayed at. Best view, large kitchen, nice staff especially the hard working cleaning staffer & priceless view of the harbor! |

|I enjoyed my stay at this hostel,this is one of the cleanest & best scenery hostel that I have stayed. I definitely will stay at this hostel when I do visit Hong Kong on my next visit!
The only one dislike that I would like to mention is that the water in the lady's shower is not at a constant temperature! |

|The facilities provided are compatible with the price. However, I found some staff are impatience quite often or stick to the procedures/ principles a bit too much which means not flexible nor fit as a receptionist of a hostel (where guests are coming to have a complete rest). And about the shuttle bus, I'm expected that there would be one at every half an hour at least (even just to the foot of the hill to get a bus/taxi). And it's kind of funny to rash onto the bus to occupy a space once it has arrived, mainly at the last time of the day.

|Everything had a charge. It would be nice if tea/coffee and bread/jam were included in the room charge. |

|Main issue is the location : great view and really calm and to use shuttle is not really a big deal, except if you want to stay really late downtown, but if you have to leave the hostel before the first shuttle to catch your plane you have to know that it is quite difficult to get a taxi from the hostel and you will have to go to the airport with it. (= you will pay around 250HK$ more than with the train). A bit stressful and maybe not the best way to end your trip|

|It is HK! Everything is expensive. The hostel is located on the Mt Davis and you should greatly depend on the shuttle bus or it will cost you 60 HKD to a MTR station.Small room, extremey noisy air conditioning. Can not expect much.|
