Expert review of Anne Black YWCA Hong Kong (The)

The phrase “cheap and cheerful” could well be embroidered on the bed spreads.

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.

Location: 

In walking distance of the MTR and the area’s (tourist trap) markets. The road name means “cultural fortune”, in case you were wondering.

Bedrooms: 

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.

Public areas: 

Fairly sparse – the internet room is often full, but there are plenty of computer cafés nearby.

Eating and drinking: 

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Serviceable, if hardly scrumptious. Hundreds of alternatives in the immediate vicinity.

Leisure facilities: 

None to speak of on site, though there are facilities at associated YMCAs.

Service: 

The staff have seen it all before, but remain good humoured and helpful.
