We appreciated that the hostel facilities cater for both western and eastern guests. As tea drinkers, we particularly liked the fact the rooms have a kettle! (So much better than American or Canadian hotels that only cater for coffee drinkers) We felt safe and easily mastered the local MTR system that was close to the hostel. We did enjoy being in a local area (rather than in a downtown tourist location). The locals were friendly and helpful.

The graffiti in the elevator area, murals, art and on site museum lend history and a personal edge to a historic place. I enjoyed the diversity of events using the conference room. The cafe could sell coffee in the morning, the store could open before 12 noon, it would be nice to have a bulletin board with employees favorite eating spots and sights. It would be good to know I could use my credit card before arriving, the baggage room really helped out with my early arrival and late departure.
