The Neighbourhood

Things to do

Feel the pulse of Hong Kong and soak up the vibrant, multicultural atmosphere of the city. To help you with your stay, we’ve put together a list of all our favourite restaurants, bars, shopping malls, and activities.

Caterking Dim Sum

While Chinese cuisine is well-known over the world, foodies and locals alike claim that there’s nothing quite like dim sum in Hong Kong. Cater King is affordable and delicious, and only a 3-4 minute walk away from the hostel.

Ichiran Ramen

This Japanese ramen chain, Ichiran, is world-famous and open 24 hours! Enjoy a delicious ramen meal in a traditional partitioned booth. Ichiran is about a 7-minute walk from the hostel.


This hip yakitori establishment is one of the most popular dining spots for young Hong Kong creatives, serving delicious skewered grilled chicken. Waiting times can be long, but the food and the vibes are totally worth it! Yardbird is a 12-minute metro ride away.


Located on the top floor of The ONE shopping mall (literally ten steps from Atlas!), this bar offers breathtaking views of Hong Kong. For a nearby nightcap drink, or to start your big night out, this is definitely the spot.

Tai Ping Koon

Tai Ping Koon is a historic establishment serving ‘soy-sauce Western,’ or the Chinese interpretation of western dishes from British Colonial days past. The souffle is worth a visit, and the restaurant is only a 5-minute walk from Atlas.

Wah Kee Snacks

A trip to Hong Kong wouldn’t be complete without local street food skewers. Try the siu mai, curry fish balls, or for something sweet, egg puff waffles (‘gai dan zai’). Wah Kee is only a 5-minute walk away and has all the local street food options on offer!

Lan Kwai Fong

If you’ve heard of Hong Kong, chances are you’ve heard of Lan Kwai Fong. This area is one of Hong Kong’s most famous cultural landmarks, with a ton of bars, nightclubs and restaurants packed into a small area! This is Hong Kong’s ground zero for partying and nightlife!


A sophisticated and upscale restaurant serving a mix of Italian and Japanese dishes, Aqua has amazing food and a low-lit, romantic cozy atmosphere. Floor-to-ceiling windows make for spectacular views of the skyline! Book ahead!


K11 MUSEA is Hong Kong’s latest cultural and retail destination, located right in the promenade of Tsim Sha Tsui. With a wide range of shops, dining, beautiful views and art to look at, K11 MUSEA is a must-visit!

Harbour City

Harbour City, located on Canton Road, is full of all the retail brands and shops you can imagine. From luxury brand names to sportswear and tech giants, you’ll find everything you need here.

Temple Street Night Market

Temple Street Night Market starts at the junction of Temple Street and Jordan Road and ends at Kansu Street. Along this 5-block long shopping strip, the stalls don’t open before 4pm, with the most activity happening between 7pm and 10pm. As you walk along you’ll find everything from fake designer clothing and accessories to phone cases and Chinese-inspired souvenirs piled up high.

Ladies Market

Unlike its night-time counterpart, this flea market gets going much earlier in the day (a little after noon). So it’s possible to spend the afternoon bargaining here before heading to Temple Street Night Market in the evening. The selection in its 100+ stalls range from almost real designer handbags and clothing to costume jewellery and lingerie.

The Peak

The Peak certainly requires no introduction. It’s one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hong Kong; its name not-so subtly suggests that it’s situated right on top of Victoria Peak; and with an elevation of 369 metres above sea level, it boasts spectacular 360-degree views of Hong Kong. So whenever the weather is fine, be sure to pop over to the top for some breath-taking panoramas.

Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade

The Tsim Sha Tsui promenade has a ton of awesome sights to visit, from the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Hong Kong Cultural Center, the Avenue of Stars, the Clock Tower, the Star Ferry Pier, and the Space Museum!

Hiking Hong Kong

Despite what you may think, Hong Kong has great outdoor activities. Hong Kong has a ton of great hiking trails; some are shorter and more easily accessible than others, but all have spectacular views! We recommend Dragon’s Back, Po Toi Island, or Sai Wan! Ask us for recommendations!

Big Buddha & Monasteries

Many tourists from around the world head over to Lantau Island and take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car to take a gander and climb up the Big Buddha. You can also visit the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery (there are actually in fact 12,800 statues on the entire grounds) or the more recently built Tsz Shan Monastery.

Tai O Fishing Village

Dating back over 200 years, Tai O remains one of Hong Kong’s important fishing villages. In its heyday, over 30,000 people lived in the area, which had vast salt fields from which the fishermen used to preserve their catch. Today, not so much of that still exists, but the town has fast become one of Hong Kong’s most popular tourist sights off the beaten track thanks to the launch of Ngong Ping 360.

Outlying Islands

Hong Kong has about a dozen outlying islands that are well worth the visit, including Lantau Island, Cheung Chau, Peng Chau, Lamma Island, Park Island, Sharp Island, Grass Island, Po Toi Island, Tung Pung Chau, and Yim Tin Tsai.


Located inside Chung King Mansions you will find several laundromat services such as Tak Lai Laundry.


One of HSBC’s largest branches is located just downstairs from Atlas.
