Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.

This is the most horrible, poor and dirty hotel I've been in my life. It's been really a terrible experience. Hotel practically without lobby, without facilities, with the smallest room you can imagine, like a cemetery burial place, without hangers or cabinets, and unbelievably small...More

Got offered this hotel very last minute. Price was right. Only thing would be that it’s a tad bit small compared to the pictures. But was able to get a good night sleep and clean bathroom . Walking distance to transportation and other food places

We booked the superior twin room and it did not seem very superior to be honest. Was still very small but i guess that's common for Hong Kong. Just could not imagine what the standard twin would have been like given there was not much...More

This is the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in, anywhere. Firstly, it's not actually a hotel, because all the rooms have a 'guest house' notice on the door. The rooms are minuscule (I am writing this sitting on the single bed, because the 'desk'...More
