  1. Went there twice, then no more

    “1st, the entrance fee is 150 hkd, then gave you a member card for next time, so 2nd, only paid 98 hkd.

    It is really small and stupid design. Small toilet without water pipe for bottoms, only one.

    Only four small rooms, no paper, no condom and gel, so you must bring them into, used out and no more condom later at my 2nd time.

    The better thing, good location, so more guests and types, easier to find out yours, but only peak time from 3pm to 6 pm, then so quiet after 6pm, even no one later.

    The staffs are nice, fruit and snack free, and water. Never go there again after visiting the wonderful Gateway sauna, for the detail you can check my comment there.“

  2. Great first sauna experience

    “I've never been to a sauna before to compare this to, but I enjoyed my time. I unfortunately went after peak time but still managed to have some great play time with some guys. I'll definitely come back again.“

  3. Not worth it, do not go!

    “Went on a Saturday night, friendly staff but really quiet, only 7-9 guys there, none attractive or in shape, very small, and old sauna, had to leave after 10 mins.“

  4. First time, never again

    “Visited there on Tuesday 5.30pm, I assume that there will be crowd especially those after work. Regrettably only 8 person including myself and it seems really crowded within this tiny spaces (only 4 private cabin available and really smelly). I'm an Asian Chinese bottom with average body, but unable to find an available top, other than a hairy 100kgs Caucasian who was sweating in sauna room. Eventually I left after 30 minutes stay empty handed. As a first time visitor, this will be the last time to visit this sauna. I rushed to other sauna afterwards and seeing full of crowd, I know I have to blacklist CE Sauna due to its poor conditions and poor visitor response.“

  5. March 2017 visit

    “Very friendly staff. Not that busy went I went there middle of the week, but as a westerner, was quite appreciated by some young Chinese.
    Highly recommended compared to other saunas where you are ignored if not Asian“

  6. Very friendly place

    “I went to this sauna on week on January 2017. It was a really nice place, full of guys and clean.
    Condom and lubricants were available and free. The staff was really friendly.
    Facilities were good and hot guys was there.
    Location was ok. This is a very good place in hong kong to relax and enjoy men.
    I'll be back !“

  7. Absolutely Gross

    “Was hit by a pungent smell upon entry, and saw the staff eating/cooking behind the reception. multiple plates of greyish oily matters laid on old newspapers. The smell was so bad I could finish undressing and had to gtfo, almost bump into a pale bloated hairy belly type thing in my hurry. Was there less than 3 mins and from super horny to mildly depressed at the end.“

  8. I recommend this place!

    “I have gone here twice, and will go once more before I go back home.

    Despite my lack of "perfect" body, these guys loved me. And I loved them right back.

    The workers were super friendly. The clientele were mostly sensuous and fun to play with (and had very sexy bodies). Unlike Turkish guys (I'm visiting from Istanbul), nobody tried to engage in unsafe sex. Just perfect.“

  9. Jacuzzi without water

    “I went there last Saturday and had some fun with a Thai man and an Aussie. Most people there were local Asians but there were a few white guys and Indian men. The staff were friendly but the place extremely small and the facilities poor. There was a Jacuzzi without water so I thought they were quite creative! There was no changing room so you have to unclothe yourself in front of everyone else. Like some people said it's a hit or miss. I went there in the afternoon and saw some 15 people there and when I left a few hours later there were only 2 or 3.“

  10. A paradise for Caucasians

    “It is a small sauna, but very clean with friendly staff.
    It seems there are more locals who are keen to have fun with Caucasians. If you are young fit Caucasian, everyone is following you. Although you are not popular at other sauna because of the age or body shape, you will have more chances to have fun with locals as long as you are Caucasian.
    As I mentioned the place is very small, but there are sauna, bath tub, team sauna, four rooms, and relaxing cabin. So you have enough place to have fun.“

  11. Best experience.

    “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!!“

  12. Nice

    “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.“

  13. 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.“

  14. 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“

  15. 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.“

  16. Disappointed

    “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.“

  17. 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.“

  18. 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.“

  19. Sauna Cherry

    “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“

  21. Good 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.“

  22. Great Hideaway

    “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 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.“

    “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.“

  26. 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.“

  27. 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.“
