ROOM TYPES
We have the most variety of rooms. And they complied with government regulations on fire safety and building safety. As we see that almost guest rooms in Hong Kong are too small with tiny beds. We especially design spacious rooms with king size beds. We possess all the merits of other hostels, and at the same time, we guarantee an absolutely silent and new environment in every room we have. The partial rooms are designed according to the level of a 3-4 star hotel in Hong Kong. Both the room and size of the bed in our hostel is largest among all hostels in Hong Kong. We also offer the economy rooms and dormitory rooms with the lowest prices. Our rooms perfect for all kind of customers, whether you are the group, individual travelers, budget travelers or backpackers.

Our rooms are categorized into three classes: Budget, Standard and Luxury.
Because the site only can reserve one type in each type rooms, we show for online booking only for our basic one.
For example: If you reserve a Twin Private En-suite, you will get our room type: Twin - Budget(With Private Bathroom). Customers who booked rooms from this website are given the privilege to upgrade their rooms. Standard or Luxury room up to 50% discount off if other classes of rooms are available. Customers can fully exercise their right to decide between staying in the same booked room or upgrade! Extra hostel facilities and service are charged upon request.

====================================================

1. This website are establishing the categorization-of-room-ty pe function on their website now, we can only sell our budget rooms on their website. So we fail to differentiate our luxury rooms from other hostels.

2. Some foreign customers from America and Europe easily have wrong expectation, because the hostel in their country are large with a comparable low price because their country is large also.

3. As above, they always think the rooms of hostels in Hong Kong are very tiny. That's what I always observe form the reviews on the website. They think they should receive similar rooms in Hong Kong as they got in their country with the same price. They don't understand that the land in Hong Kong is among the highest in the world.

4. Some customers after traveling to the mainland China complain that our rooms are tiny as compared with what they get in China. They don't understand that China is a still developing country. Their land is a lot cheaper than that in Hong Kong. Though HK is returned, they two own two separate and different systems. This is the famous policy 'one country, two systems'.

5. Some customers doesn't know that the room rates are fluctuated and decided by the market. This because some customers making booking temporarily at the high seasons period. We suggest customers book the rooms as early as they can. So they can enjoy the best price in the high seasons.

Based on the above observation, We hereby to ask our customers to read the whole passage, so that you will have a clearer picture of hostel business in Hong Kong. We want you to have a happy holiday here.
We don't want you to have a fake expectation and then feeling being cheated after your fake expectation is not fulfilled.
