What travellers think...
It is a quite place indeed because of the temple there. Temperature is cool and nice Lantau Peak view there. Please always get yourself ready for the hiking if whether permitted. I found the hostel was closed from 1pm to 4pm for cleaning and this made me went there twice since I arrived there about 2pm. ( You need to take about 20 min walk from temple to hostel ) With the luggage which I carried along, I got my leg sprain then. So unlucky! However, the hostel manager was so kind to allow me check in earlier. Remember to bring enough food and arrive there before 7pm. The road to hostel is dark and there are lot of dogs there after 7pm. I still remember one of the Chinese travellers chased by the stray dogs and he got his handphone spoilt!! Perhaps he should take the hostel manager advise earlier.
