As I have mentioned in my last Hong Kong post, we have a limited budget for this trip, so we needed to be thrifty as possible. In most travels, one of the expenses that takes bulk of the budget is the accommodation. But good thing, the concept of backpacker hostels are gaining so much popularity over the years.
In Hong Kong, there are lot of backpacker hostels to choose from, but not all are of quality (if you have been budget travelling, you know what I mean haha). This is our number one concern when we were looking for cheap accommodation. We are aware that quality comes with a price, but not all the time; all it takes is patience in searching and reading lots of recommendations and reviews. Another thing to consider is the location — we are going to tour the city using public transportation, so it should be near bus stops or train stations. Lastly, since we are travelling in a big group of 8, we want a room that will fit us all.
And this is where Urban Pack comes in, it’s perfect for our needs! Urban Pack is of quality; it’s literally near, like 1 minute away from both a train station and a bus stop; and it offers rooms that accommodates up to eight persons.
