Customer Reviews YHA Hong Kong- Ngong Ping SG Davis Youth Hostel

|great hostel, needs a bit of TLC, Brian was great and i will stay again.
The major issue was booking online when it was registered as fully booked and my son and me where the only people there.
I had to call direct to the YHA office to arrange my online booking.
give the place a bit of TLC and good clean and its a top place

|It was like my home away from home -- far from the noise of the bustling metropolis. Well-maintained, clean and orderly. It's surrounded by beautiful scenery in the morning but the stillness of the night makes you want to sleep early. If you're a nature-lover and a hiker like me, you'd love this place. Take the bus #23 before 6pm. Don't take the alternative route with bus #11 alone at night.:)|

|My stay at Ngong Ping was great but this is mostly due to very friendly and helpful Brian who is single handling the management, cleaning, and general running of this hostel (bearing in mind that the place is rather isolated, this is not an easy task for 1 person only!)
The place is sober and simple (hence really cheap) but could definitively do with a bit of investment and time to make it more comfortable (feels like not a penny has been spent on renovating the place since the 70s!!). |
