This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I have had a nice vacation in H.K. The location of the hostel is good.

Near the hostel, there are seven eleven, mcdonald's, Rice porridge shop, yoshinoya.

Those are safety foods for Japanese youth like me.

But if you stay the hostel ,it's better to buy towel, shampoo, toothbrush.

I sensed H.K. culture at GIG.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I went to Golden Island Guesthouse in Febr.2011 for two nights.
Our room was nothing close to the one you can see on the picture they advertise themselves.
We stayed on the 5th floor in a closet size room all walls with white tiles really ugly and cold.
Tiny window. Beds with very hard mattress and a small tv. Nothing else. We had 3 luggages and once we had it in the room we could barely turn around. Very uncomfortable.
Bathroom is a 2 by 3-4 feet toliet with a shower head in it (about the size of a public toilet) with a very tiny sink with only cold water running.
We had hot water from the shower but only lasted about 3 minutes because the water tank was very small. So I figured out why the bucket hanging on the wall, we used that to fill up with warm water and rinse.
They provided no towels.
There is hot water tank for coffee and tea on the corridor if you want but I had to go to 7th floor to the reception to ask for a spoon, they luckily had a plastic spoon a used one but I washed it. Next day a bought a spoon. Anyway my point is to be prepared for little things you might want to bring with you or you'll have to keep asking them from towels to spoons or anything else you thought they have in the rooms.
The elevator/lift wouldnt stop on its way up at 5 to go to 7. Only stops on it's way down.
I took the stairs when I needed to go to the office luckily only 2 floors difference.
I paid 520 HonKong dollars per nights for this place that's about 65-70 USD, later found
for 250 per night a block away. Over all I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone and I would't ever go back again.

We checked in at Golden Island Guesthouse at 7th floor and after that the lady brought us one level down. Turned out we stayed at this place called Fuk Hua Travel House and not GIG. So the room is totally different from the one we saw online earlier. Room is small but I guess that's HK. The building is old and can be pretty scary sometimes especially if you have to use the staircase as the elevator doesn't reach every floor. Cant review GIG because we were brought to another guesthouse. Anyone encounter this before?
