Check In
  • Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Kit face to face during my short stay in Hong Kong, but he was very communicative and proactive in ensuring I knew where I was going, and arranged for someone to show me the space. The room itself was very clean and full of other awesome people who provided insight on what to do.

    The view from the rooftop was fantastic with the view it provided. Also, it was ideally situated less than 200 meters from the subway station! It was a great place to stay for my short time!

  • I am in love with atmosphere of TinTong. If you're searching for place you feel home in Hong Kong, it's the place to stay in.
    I arrived Saturday night and it wasn't a problem to check-in at 2 am and Kit kindly sent me all instructions how to find a place with public transport.
    Kit & team many thanks to you for a very familiar and joyful stay in HK. If I go to HK I definitely will stay at Tin Tong again and again.

  • Nice neighborhood. The apartment is a little bit mess but people are so nice. I recommend this second home

  • The main thing for me is that is not like hotel/hostel, that is like you best friend's home. I mean the atmosphere, your feelings while staying here. This is a room on the 9th floor and there is a 10th floor - own rooftop when you could go anytime. The room has 6 beds (actually 3 double-floor beds) and much other space decorated with some vintage and art-house things. Except that the room has useful things at the "kitchen area". This also has tips and local guides (and sure Kit can give the information, he is very helpful). The area has 1 toilet (combined with douche), that is rather clean. You have your own key, so you can access the room at any time. Another good here are the guests. You may meet here people from all over the world. One wall of this room is all painted by chalk with "hello" and "thanks" from people of many countries.
    As a resume i would recommend this place to whom looking for local experience, for communication with other people and for really extraordinary (and old-school) district of Hong Kong. And i don't recommend this to whom get used to get standard hotel set of options at any place.

  • This place feels like home as soon as you walk in. The atmosphere is like no other - welcoming, eclectic, and fun. Kit is a great host, and he was happy to help me plan part of my itinerary while I stayed there. If I ever make it back to Hong Kong, I will definitely stop in again! Highly recommend.

  • A very nice place to be at, because of many reasons. You get to meet people from different countries. You talk to people and get to know their culture. You chill out at the roof top. You play music on a very interesting antique looking CD player! Everyone asks everyone about what they have done for the day and share travel tips. Kit was overseas when I arrived, but when Kit returned, staying here gets even better. He is really a great host and makes Tin Tong like a home away from home.
    In addition, the location is good, and it is convenient to get to almost anywhere in Hong Kong. You are surrounded by places with good food.
    Thanks Wing and Kit for your hospitality!
    The 9 floors up and down everyday, as well as the condition of the place and its surroundings could be a little hard to swallow at first, but once you get used to all these, you'll find that Tin Tong Backpacker is what makes your time in Hong Kong really unique and special.
