Design Concept
Sitting at the middle of a cultural landscape, the Mount Davis played an important role in the Hong Kong military history since 1911, old gun batteries and barracks are just meters away from the hostel. All these are treasures for the travelers. From the statistics, there is an increasing portion of hostellers from Asia especially mainland China. Travelers who choose to live in youth hostel would opt for exploring different sides of a city.
Being a renowned hostel brand with unique characters, this project redefines the function of youth hostel of not just providing accommodation, but also a living treasure box for them to explore the colonial history of Hong Kong. This opens up a new opportunity to combine hostel services and cultural tourism. It now becomes a station to introduce the rich heritage resources in the Hong Kong Island west. Different routes of heritage tours are planned for travelers
