        A minimal budget hotel”

        Depending on what you pay, this may or may not be a good value for money. The hotel is located in a quiet street, near the MTR and bus lines, convenient stores and local eateries. The room is bigger than those in most budget hotels in town I have been to, and there are only two rooms per floor. The view on the higher floors is amazing. The internet speed is good. The bad points are many: no fridge, no safe deposit box, no bathmat, no hand soap, no hand towel. The walls were very thin. I could hear the neighbor. They use hot water storage, not a heater. So the water temperature decreases as time passes. I won't be back. There are better options.

        Best value hotel for the price”

        I have scanned many hotels in the same price point as Minimal Hotel Culture and I found that it is the best choice in terms of the ambiance and cleanliness of the rooms, price and accessibility. This hotel is in the downtown area, alongside textile stores and there's nothing much to see around except for a night market that is mostly selling electronics and women's clothes. I could have stayed in a questionable "hotel" room in Causeway Bay right in the heart of where the shopping action is but I chose Minimal Hotel Culture which was a couple of stations away because it simply felt more worth the price. The hotel staff who seemed like they were locals were very helpful, friendly and courteous as well. I would definitely stay here again when I go back to HK!

        Small, neat, clean”

        Needed a stay for only one night so this is actually a pretty nice place. Even though it is located in the poorer area of Hong Kong, still it provides everything you would need. A comfy bed, which is the most important for me, nice view (high Floor) and some amenities. Good for a single traveler like me who needed not much for a night. well ofcourse if you wanna save money for you trip in HK this is a place to consider as the food around are cheaper than other area of Hong kong.

        Better than expected + near the MTR”

        First time to stay here, I usually stay in Metroplace. But wanted to try this out. Room was very bright, slightly more spacious. And nearer to the MTR. Room has the basic necessities - strong wifi signal, comfortable bed, clean room, towels and sheets. Would definitely come back again. There's a common room but didn't get to visit during my stay.

        Very Cool and Kind Employees!! ”

        First of all, the room is small but not uncomfortable to use, and it is so clean. Before and after checking in, the baggage check service was great. Kind employees could also communicate in English. It is located on foot from Sham Shui Po station, and the bus stop to the airport is located within one minute also by walking. I strongly recommend this hotel especially to young travelers because it is very cool in many ways.

I would like to suggest that they provide free drinking water and improve the entertainment situation by providing more english channels. Overall, I really recommend the hotel and will stay in this hotel again when I am back.

        This hotel is located very closed to Sham Shui Po station. It is good place to stay if you're intesive for shpping in Mongkok or Sham Shui Po. The hotel is very clean. However, room is tiny and no other facilities in the hotel and this location is in old area of Hong Kong. So very quiet at night. So, you may feel insecure outside at night.
