Hostels in Hong Kong are basically located in residential apartments. So what they do is get a unit and convert it to accommodation. Urban Pack Hostel got 5 locations in the same building -- 5th, 10th, 10th, 14th and 15th. Each has it's own character. The hostel prides itself on its cosy design for the modern backpacker. It caters to all age group and races, anyone who appreciates a chic spaces. I appreciate that despite the high cost of space in Hong Kong, they allocated coommon areas where travelers can converge and socialize.

The best and easy way to get to the hostel/ to the airport from our hostel is by Airport bus A21.
You can take a few minutes for this A21 video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPeNyas_Gkg

Before you take any form of public transportation in Hong Kong, it is recommend that you buy an OCTOPUS card. In addition, some forms of public transportation will not offer you change. Try to have the exact amount of the fare. From Hong Kong Airport ( recommended A21/N21 bus because there are seats, a luggage rack, free Wi-Fi, and it's cheap!):
By bus A21 (06:00- 00:00): The A21 runs every 15 minutes, takes about 60 minutes, and costs $33 HKD per person. Before the stop, you will see a large park to your right and a mosque. Get off at the 13th bus stop (Cameron Road/ Nathan Road).
Walk South along Nathan Road (same direction as the traffic). Turn right on Humphreys/Haiphong road. You will see Haiphong Mansion on your left instantly (the entrance is next to a Lok Fok jewelry shop). The intersection is Nathan Road & HaiPhong Road. After entering the building, take the elevator to the 14th floor and turn right.
The one at the 15th is also cool because it has a small balcony which affords good city view. I met a Dutch guy there and had a good conversation about our travels. I also visited the 5th one night and talked with some Americans over political stuff.
Staff are very welcoming including the two young owners. One of them, Jensen, was quick to give us the above instructions to find the hostel and it proved to be very helpful.One of the receptionist (kuya Jimmy) is Filipino so it made me and my friend feel very much at home.
