I would suggest having keys or some other form of security. While it felt safe there, it also seemed very strange that there way no way to lock our room or any of our possessions away, or that anyone who wanted to could simply walk into the buildings.

Giving it 2 because staff nice and location good. The facility was poor, not very clean and no grocery store to buy food near by. Biggest issue was the rats and rodents crawling around. I don't know why they simply did not keep the doors closed instead of putting out rat poison and attracting them in to the facility.When cleaned the bathroom they did not remove the rat and rodent droppings on the window sill. Also lots of dust under the bed not cleaned in months.Toilets did not work well.

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!

I like that it is off the beaten path. I enjoyed the sunrise peak hike a lot, and was lucky to see the moon rise over Lantau peak from the Hostel veranda. It was great to see the efforts made to make it handicapped accessible and the water saving efforts were commendable. Betty, the receptionist/manager was accommodating and very helpful in making my stay special.
