              Very Satisfied StayThe place is near ladies market where you can buy different souvenirs also near the train station. The room are good enough for two and for sleeping, resting and taking a bath. It has a private CR and all the appliances are functioning well. There are also common ref, water dispenser, thermose and hair blower. They also have free room cleaning. In general it was a very satisfying stay in Dragon Hostel.

              You can't miss it!This guesthouse is very close to the Mongkok metro station, making it much easier to get to almost any place. Though not big enough, the room is clean and bright. And the water pressure of the shower is the greatest I've ever seen! But do note that there are not any sockets on the wall or within your reach (they are either on the ground or beside the TV) if you are assigned the upper bunk. So in case that would happen, you'd better bring a little clock if you want to be woken up. Other than that, the price is rather good for its location and facilities. Overall, I recommend this guesthouse to those who want a cheap yet comfortable place to live.

Just a little walk from MTR station (exit D2). --Another name of the hotel is 'Dragon Hostel'. -All staff is very friendly and helpful. Also provide the selling discounted tickets. - the price for a night is suitable for budget traveller. It s cheap but they serve you service higher than the price you paid. - the negative; I stayed in the room no.1.The room is quite small. Imokay with it but I think it doesn't suit to anyone who is taller than 175cm. Your feet, your foot toes may reach the room wall cause of its size. One more negative thing, I found the little cockroach in my room,my toilet , and also on my bed. Luckilty , it s so small , not a big one.

              Great Stay!”

              The location was really great. If you want to be in one of the busiest streets in HK, but avoids Chungking or Mirador, then this is the place to be. Very near the ladies' market (Mongkok station exit D2). The place is clean and although small, which is expected in HK, it offered a comfortable stay. The room gets cleaned everyday during our stay and basic things were provided. The staff were friendly and did I say the location is excellent? :)

              pros: accessible to all. all staffs are very accomodatibg specially the chinese girl even shes not so fluent in english shes trying her best to help us. hot and cold water are provided. cons: they do not clean our room for our entire stay 4nights. so better to maintain your place clean on your own. overall hassle free stay for a budget friendly hotel anyway we do not stay in our room too long.

              Room is dam small., toilet even smaller and no towels provided if u really need it, need pay HKD$20. If u need hair dryer u need to pay a deposit of HKD$100. Room only had 1 power socket and if u want to watch tv, u cant charge your hp and powerbank. Wifi is weak, you will lost connection halfway when using. I will not stay in this guesthouse again.

              Excellent value ...”

              Although rooms are small it is not as tiny as expected in most HK accommodations. Near metro, shops everywhere, good place to stay for those not so picky with cleanliness. Although clean but not to everyone standard.

              Actually it have been shown on website already about no facilities(still have shampoo and shower gel). Another thing is hot water should wait about 10 min after switch on. Other things are perfect. Value for money. Near MTR/Ladies’s market etc. Clean. Friendly staff, I like one I think she’s housekeeper, even she just can speak cantonese but she still try to communicate :D

              Clean! ”

              I usually don’t bother to write reviews, but I felt like I had to this time. I arrived at the hostel with a really low expectations but it turned out to be so clean and nice! The staff were kind, the room is small but so clean !! I couldn’t have been happier. I asked for another night but unfortunately they were fully booked. If I go back to HK I will definitely stay here again. Definitely value for money :)

              Worst Receptionist Ever”

              We booked for 2 adjoining/adjacent family rooms and the hostel confirmed our request. So we are in shocked when we checked in and the reception assigned us 2 family rooms which are far from each other - like our children have to pass across the hallways and balconies just to go from one room to another. Furthermore, the rooms are inside larger rooms / units within the hostel, and several times the units are locked by other tenants that you cannot enter your own room without asking the inefficient and stupidly infuriating receptionist to open the unit door for you. Receptionist is an old Chinese guy with a most unpleasant attitude - he is the worst thing in the hostel and undoubtedly the ugliest part of our HK trip. He should not be in hospitality business such as hostels.

              Sincere Guest House is in a great location in Kowloon. The staff were helpful and polite. The rooms were tiny, but clean and with great airconditioning. I'm 6'2 and had no problem at all with the bed.

              easy to communicate and ideal location for shopping and commuting”

              the place is easy to find upon arrival via A21 bus from airport. lots of money changers nearby as well as convenient stores and shopping stalls. i was directed with to a smaller room at first but when the AC did not work, they immediately transferred me which is a much bigger room. room was always cleaned in the morning. shared bathroom but well kept. just be prepared to deal with its size. water dispenser for drinking and thermos available for hot water. refrigerator available for use of all. just label your food/item. internet is reliable. room is just enough for 1-2 persons. more than that would be too stuffy already. no microwave or stove for cooking. you can eat at food stalls or 7-11 nearby instead. you can prepare instant noodles or instant hot drinks if you like. recommended for backpackers.

              Long Overdue review”

              We traveled to HK last May 2016. It was our first time to go there. Hotel was kinda hard to find, maybe because I am not exactly good at directions, but it was a nice location. The staff or owner (old man at the reception) was very approachable and he attends to our every needs. Wi-Fi has great connection. The only downside was the room was small and the bathroom. I will definitely book here again when I come back to HK

              Surprisingly good stay”

              I didn't think I would be OK with this place at all, as I booked it merely for its price. I was surprised when I got there... The room is tiny but everything worked well. The lobby has water for guests, a refrigerator you can use, and 2 toilet cubicles if the one in your room is occupied. Although it's one of the most compact rooms I've ever stayed in, everything is clean and staff are helpful and friendly. Its a good place to put up if you're looking for a good sleep (can't imagine hanging out in the small room for too long tho) Overall, 5 stars for the value, location.

              Decent accomondation”

              This guest house is right in the middle of the busy and hectic quarter Mong Kok. It's a good place to reach almost everything. In west, just 5min away you have metro station and in east train station to outer districts of Hong Kong (10min). So just perfect! The staff is willing to help in all situations and can speak English quite well. But unfortunately I came across with some cockroaches. Beside from that just don't expect too much. According to price it's a very good place to stay. Quite functional but not fancy.
