Searching for accommodation could be a tired task, since there are over thousand chioces in Hong Kong. For backpackers or solo travellers who want to save money, staying in a hostel is a good option. All you can get is affordable price, good location and clean bedding. Below is the list of hostels that I recommended in Hong Kong.
1. YHA Mei Ho House
Mei Ho House was used to be the housing for poor people in Hong Kong, which is a historic building in Sham Shui Po. Now it becomes a features modern and comfortable accommodaion. And there is a small museum about the history of Mei Ho House in 1/F.
The room is big and well-equipped in Mei Ho House. It is clean also. And there is a open-top balcony garden in 2/F with chairs which is so relaxing.
The location of Mei Ho House is a bit far from the MTR station, 15 minutes walk probably. However, there are so many local foods you can get around, no matter local food, street food and dessert. No way to be hungry in this place.
