The Hop Inn was recommended to me by my friend Carole, a fellow VTer, as she had stayed here recently. She did warn me that the rooms were small, but that the value for money and location far outweighed the size of the rooms!

Booking online direct with Hop Inn was an easy process and they only required 10% deposit to secure the booking. We paid $610HK per night for 10 nights for a double room. They also have single, triple and bunk bed rooms. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, both with the booking process and during our stay, and I would definitely recommend this Hostel to the budget conscious traveller whose first priority is location location location!!!!

There are only 9 rooms in total at this Hostel. All rooms are airconditioned and have their own bathroom, although the bathroom is very small too! We were staying in the Birdlovers Room. Each room has its own name with very different and distinct artwork and decorations in the room.

Unique Qualities: Pros and cons of the Hop Inn are as follows:-

PROS: - Definitely the main advantage is the location, within walking distance to so many things, including Nathan Road, Victoria Harbour and many MTR stations. Also within 1-2 minutes walk from Hop Inn are 7-Eleven, Macdonalds, Pizza Hut, ATM, Nathan Road, Starbucks and MTR stops.
The price was outstanding value, at about $75AUD per room per night.
The staff were extremely helpful during our stay and were quick to grant us any request we had.
FREE wi-fi for your stay and if you dont have a computer of your own, they will even loan you one of theirs to use!!!

CONS: - Definitely the size of the room, as there is barely enough room to put 2 large suitcases on the floor. Also the bathroom is very small, with the shower actually over the toilet, so everytime you shower, the toilet gets wet! The shower was also a bit temperemental with pressure and temperature.
The bed was rather hard and small.
Located with window facing a rather busy street so sometimes it was a bit noisy.

Address: Flat A, 2/F Hanyee Building, 19-21 Hankow Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Very central and only one block from Nathan Road and from Victoria Harbour.
