Expert review of Anne Black YWCA Hong Kong (The)
Not a few Hong Kong movie makers have shot the opening scenes to a gangster flick in Mong Kok – gritty streets, hordes of people, kaleidoscopic neon, concrete rainforest high-rises. If Anne Black and surrounds are short on greenery, the atmosphere certainly compensates.
In walking distance of the MTR and the area’s (tourist trap) markets. The road name means “cultural fortune”, in case you were wondering.
The rather well spaced twin beds are further indication that this is not the spot for a romantic getaway. Shared bathrooms (though there are some en suites) may not be to everybody’s taste. There’s also a ladies’ only floor. The décor hovers somewhere around 1970s Mid West motel – but this is reasonably priced bed and board and there’s no reason to stay in all day.
Fairly sparse – the internet room is often full, but there are plenty of computer cafés nearby.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Serviceable, if hardly scrumptious. Hundreds of alternatives in the immediate vicinity.
None to speak of on site, though there are facilities at associated YMCAs.
The staff have seen it all before, but remain good humoured and helpful.
Backpackers old and young from all over the globe. Very tight budget business travellers.
The superior rooms’ superiority is really limited to being more expensive.
