World Nomads Travel Insurance

As I love to travel far away from home for mostly a couple of weeks or more I’ll need insurance. Luckily I am insured via the worldwide Alpenverein insurance, but few have that and so I recommend World Nomads as they have pretty good reviews.

Affordable hostels

YesInn Hostel, Causeway Bay

Address:
2-9/F, Nan Yip Building, 472 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay

Show map

I stayed at the Yesinn Hostel and this was my first time to sleep in a triple bunk bed. I booked a 9-bed mixed dormitory and luckily I had a curtain for a little more privacy. Although it was quite nice. Bed was sort of good and surrounding area is not very crowded. The building in which the hostel is located is a quiet and small street. Kind staff as well. Definitely worth it if you travel on a budget.

I stayed here on December 22 till 23, 2017.

Starting from US$ 28
(Including taxes and charges)

Ashoka Hostel, Tsim Sha Tsui

Address:
36-44 Nathan Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui

Show map

The Ashoka Hostel, a relatively comfortable hostel if you travel on a tight budget. I had a small room with 4 beds and a little space for my luggage. The bed was a bit small for a European like me. Then to mention the bathroom, less than 90 by 90 cm, with toilet, sink, shower and changing place in one space. After a shower everything wet… including towels and clothes and even worse toilet and paper too.

Although some rooms are single-person and quite nice. Located in a crowded area, so prepare yourself if your room is at the side of the building. Other than that it’s a cheap alternative with kind staff.

Starting from US$ 49

YHA Davis Youth Hostel, Ngong Ping

Address:
Ngong Ping Rd, Lantau Island

Show map

The only hostel in the area is the YHA Davis Youth Hostel and it is a simple accommodation for travellers who hike the mountains and bring a visit to the village of Ngong Ping. A small village famous among tourists and monks who reside at the Po Lin Monastery. Lantau’s peak trail and the Wisdom Path starts just there. There was no breakfast included and showers were shared. Interestingly their were tents to provide extra space on the property. I really miss sleeping in a tent and these looked really nice.

I stayed here on December 31 till January 2, 2018.

Starting from US$ 15
(Including taxes and charges)

An amazing resort

Lantau Island

How to get there?

Take the ferry from Central to Mui Wo. From there you can take the bus to your next destination. Find ticket fares in the link below.

Where to stay?

The Silvermine Beach Resort is a great hotel at a perfect location, MUI WO beach. A hike to Silvermine waterfalls and cave followed and then back to my resort to grab dinner and a good rest. The Russan guy Vasya slept in my room too as he had no place to stay and the city centre was too far away. It was already dark as we were back at the beach.

Silvermine Beach Resort, Mui Wo

Address:
D.D.2. Lot 648, Silvermine Bay, Mui Wo

Show map

I spent the night of December 30th at the Silvermine Beach Resort and I loved everything about it. From location to accommodation. Only 10 metres away from Mui Wo beach, you really can’t miss it. Friendly staff, clean room and big bathroom with walk-in shower, nice. My window view were Christmas decorations lighting up the front garden. The swimming pool was closed as it was winter.

Well, the sea was nearby and warm enough to take a fresh swim to escape the heat. I didn’t take dinner nor breakfast there, which I kind of regret as it was really looking great on their website. New Year 2018 was nearing and my next accommodation on Lantau was located at Ngong Ping. A cheap hostel near a monastery and the Big Buddha.

I stayed here on December 30 till 31, 2017.

Starting from US$ 76
(Including taxes and charges)

Free campsites

Shui Long Wo Campsite, Ma On Shan

Address:
Ma On Shan, Hong Kong

Show map

One good thing about accommodation in Hong Kong is that camping in Hong Kong is completely free of any charge. I slept on a mountain top, a beach and BBQ site near the Shui long Wo official campsite.

If you have a small tent and want to cut travel budgets then this option is great for you.

Be sure to bring a mattress because I admit the soil in Hong Kong is pretty hard.
