HONG KONG: Yesinn Causeway Bay


One thing immediately came to mind when I entered the dorm room and saw the layout: those overnight sleeper trains in China, except that we are in a building now and there is enough space to move around. Even the blue and white combination of mattress and bed frame is reminiscent of those two overnight train rides. Each bed is equipped with a small lamp and three sockets for your gadgets. The room is a 20-bed dorm, which means there is little privacy to enjoy here. There is a bathroom each on both ends of the room, which were actually clean and not that cramped. In fact, I found it rather spacious for a dorm bathroom. The room also has a sink and counter but no cooking equipment whatsoever.


The location of this hostel makes it quite accessible, right smack at the middle of Causeway Bay along the very busy Hennessy Road. You will not run out of transportation options because the trams, buses, taxis, and MTR’s Causeway Bay station are just a stone’s throw away. As for food and shopping, you are bound to find a related establishment anywhere you turn, so that really is a non-issue. I think the main deterrent would be the price, which is rather steep in Southeast Asian standards but pretty much standard in Hong Kong, and even cheap given how the place is not shabby at all. In any case, if room sharing is not your thing, you would probably find a cramped single room somewhere in Kowloon within the same price range.
