MISSION

To provide safe, simple, and affordable hostelling services to young people and travellers from all over the world. Our hostels also serve as educational platforms that allow travellers to broaden their horizons, to learn about different cultures, and to be in touch with nature and heritage conservation.

We Believe

  • Travel does not only mean fun and entertainment, but also means breaking through limits and exploring the world.
  • Travel is not exclusive for the rich. Everyone can enjoy the satisfaction which travel brings about.
  • Youth hostels are established to provide safe and simple accommodation for travel lovers and young people of limited means.
  • Backpacking or self-guided tours have become a new mode of travel for the young generation. Youth hostels are thus an integral part of Hong Kong's tourism industry today.
