YHA Mei Ho House Youth Hostel in Kowloon, Hong Kong, China - Lonely Planet
Lonely Planet's independent on-the-ground travel writers say 'This youth hostel converted from public housing units, features immaculate rooms and dorm-type lodgings, as well as a museum and cafe . Lockers with inbuilt chargers are provided, but not toiletries. After leaving the MTR, go straight on Kweilin St, then turn right into Un Chau St. After a block, make a left into the underground walkway, turning left again as you exit. Mei Ho House was among the first batch of resettlement blocks built to house the 58,000 homeless survivors of a devastating blaze, known commonly as the 'Shek Kip Mei Fire', that broke out in 1953. As such, it marks the beginning of Hong Kong’s public housing policy.'
