Welcome to our hostel

Situated in a spectacular landscape, YHA Ngong Ping SG Davis Hostel is the destination for hiking aficionados. The hostel is close to fascinating hiking trails including Ngong Ping Trail, Buddhist Ancient Walk, Nei Lak Shan, and the 934-metre Lantau Peak which offers sublime sunrise view. Major attractions like the Giant Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, and the Wisdom Path are all within 15-minute walk. The hostel is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and is ideal for travellers who enjoy the tranquility of nature.

The hostel features a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, a spacious dining area, Wi-Fi access (around the reception area), lockers (lock exclusive), a badminton court, a barbeque site, and camping area. Dormitory, double rooms and group accommodation are available.

There are street lamps along the road from Ngong Ping bus terminus to the hostel. However please note that lighting will be dimmer around the hostel as it is surrounded by vegetation. Meanwhile, please bring your own food before going to the hostel as restaurants nearby will close at 6pm.

c'est magnifiquement situé en revanche pas entretenu, cela mériterait quelques travaux et améliorations

Super emplacement pas loin de la station de bus et du téléphérique, mais calme et entouré d'arbres. Peu de gens pendant la semaine apparemment, possibilité de cuisiner avec pleins d'ustensiles différents, possibilité de dormir sous tente (pas proposé sur le site hostellerie international il me semble). Personnel aimable. Les infrastructures sont assez rudimentaires mais les chambres sont spacieuses.

This is a rustic hostel, but is well managed, clean and efficient. It is close to the Big Buddha and various hiking trails, but once 5pm hits the 'town' closes down so there isn't a great deal to do. In addition, because it is a tourist town there isn't a supermarket nearby, so some forward meal planning is required. Overall a basic, no frills hostel, which is well managed and has a friendly atmosphere.

I enjoyed my stay there, especially the location. It was important to me that the staff spoke some english and could give good advice to me about activities in the area. I believe IYHA is lucky to have a hostel in that quiet spot in such a busy place as Hong Kong. I really liked the peace of being near the monastery.
