|OFFICAL LETTER OF COMPLAINT
I am a seasoned YHA member for over 10 years! I have visited may hostels in HK and China.
Reason of complaint : It seems the Manager 2014Feb (you know his name) took exception to my
Personality and hence instructed TO ALL OF HIS STAFF not to let me Continue My stay at the
hostel (eventhough I had only stayed 3 of the 7 max days). Hoowever, I know that rooms where
infact available by my many friends (Japanese and French Canadian.
Why we clash ? Because I gave CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM on how to run the hostel!
In Order to Make a Profit / or Balance Costs then I ADVISED : 1.VIP ROOMS! 2. UPGRADES IN
ROOMS 3. SPECIAL PRIVILEDGE ROOMS , for people who wish to pay more !

|Great hostel, clean and all the amenities a traveller might need. For the price too I don't know why anyone would stay in a cheap hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and make it feel very comfortable and welcoming. |

|It is the second time I stayed in this hostel and definitely will come back again. Hostel has everything you need, fully equipped kitchen, nice rest room, fine bathroom, wonderful view, traveling guide book (I was in big need for that). It is a great place to meet new friends, both Chinese and from some place else. Staff is friendly and helpful, atmosphere is very warm. Do not hesitate - go for it!|
