Jockey Club Mt. Davis Youth Hostel is set near Mount Davis summit, enjoying sublime views over Victoria Harbour, Tsing Ma Bridge and a glimpse of Disneyland fireworks. Surrounded by WWII remnants, the hostel is a short walk to the remains of Mount Davis Battery, command headquarters and arsenal of the British army.
The hostel offers free Wi-Fi, backpack sized lockers with power sockets, a common room with pool table, canteen, TV room and barbecue area. A 15 minute walk takes you to Sheung Wan market place which is great for buying food to cook in the self-catering kitchen.
A complimentary shuttle bus service runs between the Jockey Club Mt. Davis Youth Hostel and Shun Tak Centre in Sheung Wan - a 20 minute ride takes you to the heart of Hong Kong’s vibrant nightlife area where Lan Kwai Fong and Soho are within walking distance.
What travellers think
I had a relaxing 5 night stay on Mt. Davis. This place is perfect for someone who likes the city, but appreciates having a quiet place to relax at the end of the day. The shuttle was really easy, you just have to plan around the times. I was in a 4-bed female dorm which was small but comfortable. Loved the big lockers, power outlets inside and by each bed. The kitchen was large and well-equipped, and quite busy at night. My favorite part was sitting outside in the evening, taking in the view.

Sunrise from the top of the hill behind the hostel where the WWII buildings are. Use a compass to find the eastern most spot.
