  1. Friendly staff very small place

    “This place is very small like an apartment house turned into a sauna (perhaps the staff live there). Very limited space wise and only a few private rooms. The place is very unassuming - don’t expect fancy facilities. If you go at night you will be there by yourself, the busiest time is when they open around 6 ish.

    The staff is very friendly and accommodating, I even got a free pass cause when I got there at 8 pm - the place was empty but managed to visit a second time on an earlier time and it was better under the circumstances.“

  2. Not impressed

    “The good thing is there are quite a few westerners.

    The bad things are only condoms and lube in the locker they give you. Not in the rooms which is very inconvenient. Also they give only one towel and if you need a clean dry towel they will charge you a few dollars.

    They have a free massage chair which is nice.“

  4. Great

    “I was there today and 2 days ago. I am a white French 45 yo. Easy to find this sauna close to 7/eleven. Staff were really friendly. Price good, 150 the 1st time and they gave me a card, next visit for 98$. Free coffee and some fruits free too. Yes, it's small like all saunas in HK downtown. I had a lot of fun with local guys.“

  5. Just back from a wonderful visit

    “Maybe I have been lucky but I travels all over the world and tonight was one of my best sauna trip. Maybe because it is tiny, we can not avoid contacts... Crew was very friendly.

    I will be back next week.“

  6. escalator sauna

    “I found this place by accident yesterday . Its a very very clean place . The guy @ the frontdesk was beautiful and friendly. The place is small. There where 4 other guys. Two where interested only in their smartphone and a daddy couple wanted to play together. So I fooled around with the daddy couple and left. The guy @frontdesk even gave me a card to come back later. Very friendly place above a 7 Eleven.“

  7. Plenty of action

    “This sauna is small, but it is its size that guarantees plenty of action! The steam room was busy, you were openly cruised in the showers, and the relaxation rooms were constantly in use. Staff were very friendly. It's perhaps because I got lucky twice that I am giving this place a positive review but I wasn't the only one having fun...very mixed crowd. Yes, it could do with being a little cleaner, but I don't like my saunas to be temples of marble and opulence.“

  8. Not recommended

    “It's a very small sauna and not clean at all. Smelly shower place and the room. Towels are dirty. Those sandals are never cleaned before the next customer use.“

  9. Alexander travels the galaxy...

    “The place is small... true.
    The place is not new anymore... true.
    The reception guys are often (almost permanently, it seems LOL) eating cooked food... true too.
    The number of customers at any given time rarely exceeds 15... yes, true.
    But... it is also the hottest, the cruisiest, the most action-filled place in this galaxy.
    I will certainly be back !“

  10. Its Okay!

    “The place is not bad, but not the best either. Its the most posh place in HK, Central but the crowd in comparison is not that good. The diversity is god here, being a South-Asian myself, I was welcomed well.

    The place is too small and there was not much action going for a Friday night. I had some group fun in shower & some in cubicles. The hotness level of the guys is medium.“

  11. Bad experience. Smelly place.

    “I have been here twice. I would not go back there. The shower area smelled. The small rooms definitely had that fishy odor. I am not sure how the staffs cleaned there after hours.

    The local guys looked very dirty as well. Some of them spit loudly in the showers. They never respected or considered the place as a share space with others. Many smoke inside the toilet and left a strong burning odor inside.

    The staffs, owners, and customers were gossips. Commenting customer's size, and say things behind others when they could not take rejection. Seriously?“

      “Yes, smoker in small tiny bathroom, not good for non smoker like myself, the shower outside the steam room is smelly and the steam room is rank... BUT, the shower outside the dry sauna is much better, seems newer and cleaner and less smell, I didn't notice it at the beginning but found it at the opposite end of the building pass the laundry room.“
