Greetings from YHA Mei Ho House, Kowloon, Hong Kong. This former public housing block was turned into a very modern form of low cost accommodation for travelers two years ago. There are some seventies themed rooms and a free museum on the ground floor with the history of the building and recreations of the old apartments. Nearby is the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (JCCAC) another old building re-purposed as an artists colony. The district has markets and computer stores, with metro stations and buses connecting to the rest of HK.
One catch is that the YHA is very hard to find from the address given ion their website (Block 41 ,Shek Kip Mei Estate, Sham Shui Po ,Kowloon). The building is accessed from Berwick Street. It is 500 m from Sham Shui Po MTR Metro Station : north-east on Kweilin St, then a dog leg to get across Tai Po Road.
