2/F Cheung Hing Commercial Building, 37 Cochrane Street, Hong Kong, China
| website | +852 2581 9951 |
One of the oldest gay saunas in Hong Kong, and relatively small. Central Escalator (CE) Sauna features a steam room, dry sauna and jacuzzi and a very limited number of private cabins.
The sauna attracts a mixture of international foreigners and tourists.
Located on the 2nd floor of Cheung Hing Commercial Building. Enter on Gage Street – go through the doorway immediately to the left of 7Eleven, then take the elevator to the 2nd floor.
“I have been couple of times on varied different occasions. It’s above the 7/11. The staff is not over friendly neither are they rude. It’s hit or miss. Sometimes in the afternoon the sauna has been extremely packed and lot of action in corridors and sometimes non action at all. However you meet that one guy for your pheromones to take over, so one of the not so packed days I met a Pakistani guy and had the best fun ever. I went back the next day and I didn’t get lucky. Hit or miss!!”

“Fairly easy to find, if you take a few minutes. Yes, quite small, but you can have nice experiences there, even if you don’t have a pre-arranged Planetromeo date like me. The staff was very nice, they were cooking for staff members and offerend me some delicious soup too.”

Taxi there, close, taxi back
“Landed today 3/3/16, chose to go to this sauna as listed in Utopia as oldest and reliable. Checked their website, open 24 hrs. Taxi there, spent time finding it as there’s TWO 7/11 in that street! Shutters down. Rang the white door buzzer several times, heard it buzz on other side of shutters but no answer. Taxi back. Waste of time and money.”

off Peak perhaps?
“Came here Friday 26/2/16 8:00 – 9:30 thinking it would be peak time… But the whole time I was there it was me.. an Asian uncle and a white uncle! The place is definitely clean ( perhaps cause it’s not used?) And has a nice cosy feel about it. Would’ve been a safe warm place to gather with like minded friends but was dead when I was there. Can anyone tell me best times to go here? thanks”

Facilities are poor
“It was my first time there, the reception is new, politely. It is very small place, towel need to pay if you asked for second one, soap is like water, I think they want to save money. Water is not hot enough. Condom you need to go to the reception to take, not in the room. It is so embarrassing! So you need to re-high again when you back to the room. Door lock is not really secured, some guys opened easily when you are with someone, always open and close, making you busy…………….. Anyways, if not international guys there, I won’t go again.
Water isn’t real distilled water. It seems from the water pipe, as I didn’t see the cover is sealed. Local guys are crazy horny, they follow you all the time and touch.”

“I have been to many saunas and this one needs a face lift. The shower area and carpet in the locker area all look old. Sauna and steam room are small. I did manage to have some fun and the front desk was nice (maybe because I’m Asian) but won’t be returning.”

Waste of time and money
“Went in a Thursday night just after 10pm. Perhaps I was unlucky but the staff outnumbered the clients in a ratio of 3 to one. When I left after 5 minutes the staff said why you leaving now – what about the Asian guy in the TV lounge. I told them 1) it was hardly a tv lounge and 2) the guy was more interested in his iPhone.
The venue is tiny. The sauna and steam room fit for 3 people at a maximum. Overall disappointed but c,eat la vie.”

White no Asian!
“Went on a Sunday afternoon around 4pm. It’s next to the 7-11 go in the door elevator on your right 2nd floor. The place is small. I mean really small. The day I went it was 75% white and 25% old Asian uncles. I stayed maybe 10-15 minutes. I admit going to any sauna is hit and miss. Today was def a miss. It was clean tho so that’s a plus. If you like white guys this is your place.”

“CE broke my sauna cherry while visiting HK, mainly because it’s close and I was horny. Staff are really friendly and it kinda felt like chillin in someone’s apt. Surprised to find a few local guys come up to play almost immediately, which is refreshing because grindr has sucked over here. Had some fun with a local, was hoping for more expats but it was late. Clean, safe, felt comfortable and well looked after. I’d try again during busier hours”

“I was there Saturday 27, small, clear, very good contact, there is some Chinese and over Caucasian. Very memorable time in very short time.
Enjoy you’re time in this place.”

“Very small and basic place but very clean. I was there last Saturday in the afternoon. The crowd was good, mostly young and cute locals. It was not difficult to find it after reading all the comments here. The staff were extremely good, accommodating and friendly. If you just want some action for one or two hours, this is the right place. If you want to socialize and relax longer, then try another place. I had a great time.”

“First time in a bath house. Location is discreetly tucked near the convenience store, so no one can notice unless they are stalking at you. Getting around the area is a breeze but once there, it is not easy to find since they don’t have big signs. Upon entry, staffs made us comfortable, all smile. Place is very small but it makes it easier for us to navigate with my friend. Also, they averagely clean. Went there on a weekday, mix of locals and foreigners. Got great encounters with hot foreigners, were my friend and I enjoyed.
Will certainly pay a visit in the future since staffs made us comfortable and we had quality encounters, but will also check out other bath houses to compare. We don’t go usually to bath houses, but it’s safer and better option than meeting a random guy in Hong Kong.”

Visited in Jan 2015
“Visited this place in January. Really run down and dirty. Definitely a lot better saunas in Hong Kong. They have removed the sling here also and the place is in need of a big overhaul. Cheap and dirty. Hard to get a hookup as not many visit here now.”

The place to go if you're a foreigner
“I was there early December 2014. Friendly and welcoming front desk staff. Action on Saturday and Sunday between 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Local guys that dig foreigners go here. Small, but clean. I had a blast and will certainly return.”

Cosy and well equipped.
“Arrived at CE onThursday 15/10/2014 before 17:00 and stayed until around 18:30. Very friendly staff welcomed me at the reception. I’ve already known it’s a small sauna, yet I was surprised that it’s well equipped despite of the limit of space. For me, its size was decent as I did not waste most of my time running around searching and tracking guys like the way I did in large saunas. Not many people visiting during my stay yet as a sauna-lover I understand it’s not the number of people making a sauna popular. It’s all by chance and that evening I was lucky to meet my ‘dream’ Caucasian guy and had some memorable moments. As an exhibitionist I quite like that the ‘curtain’ of the private cabin could not be fully closed so other visitors may peek in a little. Anyway, if I have not met the Caucasian, I may then try the massage chair or relax more in the steam room and the sauna, as its cosines just suited me. No doubt that I will visit again if I get the chance.”

Central Escalator Hong Kong
“Actually pretty easy to find – there are ‘CE’ stickers outside and its above the 7-11. Stunningly small, so lots of loitering around in the corridor if you can’t find your man. Steam room is a decent size, but the dry sauna is 3 people max. The jacuzzi, sunbed and other rooms were closed when I was there. Went on Sunday PM – about 15 blokes all shapes and sizes from gym fit to 20’s skinnies to past their prime. Staff pleasant. $5 charge for extra towels.”

“Small and worn out! Seriously needs a make over! Having said that I have visited twice and was never disappointed. I’m a white guy and prefer Asians which makes this place perfect. Not my favourite sauna in Hong Kong but you are certain of action.”

safe,friendly, good quality sex
“Was there last Thursday, staff helped me to store my cabin bag. Did not take long to cruise for a young guy. Very satisfying. There are clips on the curtains on cubicles and the locals just open them for a peek. Will definitely visit again for my next visit.”

“A safe choice for tourists, particularly non–Asians. Welcome all door policy and nice staff.”

“Been to this sauna tonight (13/4/2012). Even though it is not a huge, it is a great place to cruise and relax. The staff are super nice and I love the sauna and steam room because the temperature is suitable for relaxing. Not to many people, but the quality is good! Had a very memorable time and will definitely go back again.”

“Maybe not the biggest or most modern but CE is still the place of choice for western tourists and Asian who want to hook up with them.”
