Green rating



Nice location but remote. Good starting point for hiking or when you want to see the Buddha before everyone else. The bus to Ngong Ping only operates until ~ 6 pm, a taxi from Tung Chang was ~170 HKD. Room are very basic with nothing more than beds and two small bedside tables for an 8-bed dorm. There are no lockers in the dorms but in the common room downstairs. The common room is very glum and not very welcoming. It's very blank - only benches and tables for eating. Staff was very helpful!
