Student hostel is more than a place to sleep. It’s not a hotel just for eat and sleep, but a very important element in campus life. We understand non-local students’ needs, and we aim to create a learning friendly environment for our students.
As a student dormitory, the convenience of public transportation is essential. Our hostel is located in Taiwai [Festival City], right next to Taiwai MTR station. Taiwai is only 1 stop away from Kowloon Tong (CityU and BU), and 3 stops away from Hung Hom (PolyU). With a MTR station which serves two lines, 5 bus termini and several tunnels and highways connecting to other parts of the New Territories, Kowloon and Tsuen Wan, TaiWai is an important transportation node in Hong Kong.
The building is under 24-hours surveillance. Security guards can be found at the front door and concourse. Residential card is needed at all time to enter Festival City in order to ensure the safety.
You may find different cuisines in Taiwai, especially on Chik Chuen Street (aka Taiwai Food Street). On the weekends, a lot of people from other areas come to Taiwai because of the mouth-watering food. There are a wide selection of shops such as 24-hours convenience store, supermarket, clinic etc. Basically you can easily get everything you need in here.
