With arguably the world’s most epic skyline, Hong Kong can feel larger than life. It is one of the most energetic cities on the planet, and it a truly unique clash between East and West.

But unlike some of its Asia-sibling-cities… Hong Kong is not cheap. Considered by many to have the most expensive property prices on the planet, accommodation in Hong Kong can be very expensive. Which is exactly why we made this Insider Travel Guide to the Best Hostels in Hong Kong!

If you want to travel Hong Kong on a budget, you have to save money every chance you get. And the best chance you can get is by staying in hostels.

Fortunately, over the past 5 years, Hong Kong’s hostel scene has gone from ‘ok’ to ‘awesome!‘. As budget travel has become increasingly popular, Hong Kong’s entrepreneurs have answered by building hostels all over the city for travelers on all types of budgets.

With the help of this guide to the best hostels in Hong Kong, you’ll be able to easily find a hostel that best suits your travel style so you can get back to exploring (and eating in) this one of a kind Asian metropolis.

Quick Answer: The Best Hostels in Hong Kong

Best Hostels in Hongkong

Hong Kong is epic, and so is this guide to the 20 best hostels in Hong Kong

 

What to look for with the top Hostels in Hong Kong (and extra ways to save some cash!)

As mentioned, Hong Kong is not cheap.

But that doesn’t mean you have to spend a ton of money…

There are a ton of travel hacks, and the best way to reduce the cost of traveling to Hong Kong is by booking at a hostel. They are affordable, offer great value, and can put you in a position to meet other like-minded travelers.

When looking for your Hong Kong hostel, a few things to consider are…

  1. What’s your travel style? A solo traveler wanting to party is going to have a very different agenda than a couple looking for some peace and quiet. Make sure to keep in mind your travel style so you can book a hostel that perfectly fits that style. 
  2. What’s your budget? As mentioned, 5 years ago Hong Kong’s hostel scene was rough. Now? It’s great. This is because budget travel has grown increasingly popular in Hong Kong and more hostels have opened up to embrace the new wave of travelers. This means that with different types of hostels come different costs of hostels. But one thing to keep in mind, that while it might be tempting to book the cheapest hostel possible, you need to keep an eye out for freebies.
  3. Freebies! Our favorite travel hack at The Broke Backpacker is finding hostels that offer tons of freebies. What sort of freebies? Whether a free towel, a free tour, free Wifi or our favorite (and #70 on this list) free breakfast! Keep in mind that the cheapest hostels don’t typically offer free stuff, so by spending a couple extra bucks, the hostel freebies will easily negate the extra cost of more expensive hostels which means you can save more and travel in style. 
Psst! Heading to a hostel? Don’t forget to pack a padlock! It’s well worth having one so you can secure your locker and protect your stuff!
