Dragon Hostel Hong Kong




The Hostelz.com Review

We made a booking at the last minute and Dragon Hostel Hong Kong was one of only three available, so it appeared to be the best choice. Being next to a metro station is a big bonus. Stanley Fan, whose family owns the hostel, is very prompt and courteous in responding to emails, only requiring a one-night refundable deposit through Paypal and then the remainder upon arrival.

The Location

After the airport bus dropped us off at the Mong Kok Station stop on Nathan Street (only a few meters off Argyle Street), it takes less than five minutes to reach the entrance to Dragon Hostel in Sincere House. Exit 2 of the Metro Station is on Argyle Street just after the bus stop. It is a straight walk past Exit 2 to Sincere House, which takes up a whole city block. It is necessary to walk to the far end of Sincere House and turn left on Fa Yuen Street and go in the first doorway after the shop. Dragon Hostel is on the seventh floor, so take the first elevator (which only goes to odd-numbered floors). The office is on the left after getting out of the elevator. In the office you will probably be met by the gracious Stanley Fan, whose family runs the hostel.

The area around Sincere House is always buzzing with activity. Argyle Street is quite busy and across the street is a daily outdoor market that runs for several blocks, selling all kinds of gifts, clothes, and goods. Lots of Western fast-food chains and 7-11 shops are located near there, as are endless local street food stalls. The ground floor of Sincere House has mostly mobile phone shops and the other shopping streets have everything you could imagine (including an ivory shop).
There are cafes and restaurants on other floors of Sincere House.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel now has more than seventy beds, which spread out quite a bit. The rooms are generally on the small side, as are the bathrooms, but it isn't a problem. Many of the dorms have en suite bathrooms and there are additional shared bathrooms close to all the rooms. The beds are comfortable and rooms have AC, house phone, and TV. Bathrooms have hot water -- and we do mean hot, so be careful when getting under the shower. Rooms have locks and each guest gets a key, but there are no individual lockers in each room. Lockers are situated beside reception.

Common Spaces

The reception area has a television and two computers for guests to use for free. There is extra seating there with electrical plugs, and also a luggage storage facility. A kitchen is next to the reception where there is a fridge, stove, and sinks. Some utensils are available for guests to use. There are other fridges and seating areas in other parts of the hostel also. Water, sodas, and drinks can be purchased at reception. Hot water and tea are always free for guests. Wi-Fi is quite good throughout the hostel as there are several routers. Laundry service is available for an extra price per load.


They receive guests from all over the world, so it's a great place to meet fellow travelers. Many people come to Hong Kong to apply for a Chinese visa and Dragon Hostel provides a visa service and other travel assistance. Stanley speaks excellent English (and other languages, too, we believe), and he is most helpful in a friendly and welcoming manner. The nightman, Steven, also speaks good English; most of the other staff don't, but they will immediately contact Stanley when needed.

Must Stay
Great location, polite staff, clean, great air conditioning. Probably the best value in the area. Highly recommended for travelers on a budget.

Cheap, clean, and good location.
The building is quite old and you have to wait a bit for the lifts. Also, at least in my room it was hard to use WiFi. But these are the only small problems I found, everything else was perfect according to the price -- clean, good bed, location, staff ... And of course, very cheap compared to other places in Hong Kong!

Affordable, clean, convenient!
Found the availability of booking a room excellent as I was able to book last second and the check in was so fast upon my arrival. Rooms are very clean and numerous facilities are at the ready for convenience. Location is superb as it is only a matter of minutes walk to the nearest MTR station. Also I highly praise the service that the reception provides in sending off for a Vietnam visa on my behalf so this gave me the chance to visit the Wong Tai Sin temple (must see) during my last couple of days here. Great hostel!

Nothing to complain about!!!
I wouldn't say it's perfect but for a budget accommodation, it's really fantastic! There is nothing I can complain about. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom and the room is small but cosy and clean, and I love it! Bathroom is always clean as well. The location is definitely perfect and I am glad that I made the right choice instead of choosing a hostel in Chungking. Even the security guard downstairs is friendly, let alone the staff at Dragon Hostel! Really enjoyed my stay and it made my solo trip to Hong Kong a plus!
