Advantages Location/ View from rooms/ Price
Disadvantages Not much attention from staff on arrival
I stayed in the Salisbury YMCA Hotel for 8 nights in October 2009 during a stop over on the way to Australia. I was a student traveling alone so I booked the dormitory room which was the cheapest option. The price was 240HKD per night which I found very reasonable.THE ROOM:
When I was there the Salisbury YMCA was under going major renovations so the whole lobby area was very busy and a little hard to get around. I had to enter through a side entrance and use the elevators at the back of the hotel. This wasn't too much of a problem though and I got to grips with in within a few hours of going in and out. The staff were extremely friendly and patient when I was asking any questions. One negative point was that no one directed me to my room on arrival, so I spent about 20minutes trying to find where I was staying. I didn't eat the food in the hotel while staying there so I can't comment on this but I'm sure it'd be just as satisfying as the rest of the hotel. I rarely saw other guests walking about which some people may find off putting but this wasn't a problem for me and it meant that there was never any problem with the noise.
All in all I really enjoyed my time at this hotel. Anyone who's on a budget traveling, don't let the dormitory room thing put you off, it's no different from a normal room which you'd pay much higher prices for. I was a (very small) 18 year old girl traveling alone when I went there and I never once felt unsafe.Getting into the hotel after long days walking about was an absolute pleasure.
