Sweet glutinous rice balls or “Tong Yuen” is a popular homemade dessert eaten in the Mid-Autumn Festival in Hong Kong. Made from glutinous rice flour mixed with a small amount of water to form balls, “Tong Yuen” can be either in any sizes, filled with sweet fillings or unfilled. Its round shape and the bowls where they are served symbolize the unity and togetherness of a family.

As the Mid-Autumn Festival is coming, HKYHA would like to celebrate with you this one of the most important festivals of the year. Enjoy a FREE pack of sweet glutinous rice balls (Tong Yuen) while staying in our suburban hostels in 1-15 October! With the full moon up in the sky and warm delicious sweet “Tong Yuen” in hands, you can share the beauty of the moon and the tranquility of nature with your family and friends.


Stop wondering and start wandering! Tuck away from the hubbub of the city!

Soak up the moonlight with the unrivalled views of Victoria Harbour and Tsing Ma Bridge at the 270-degree sea view observation deck. You can also play a round of board games at the Common Room, or go for a historic walk to visit the WWII Mount Davis Battery relics near the hostel in the next morning.

New Territories: Bradbury Jockey Club Youth Hostel

Adjacent to Plover Cove Reservoir, the hostel spares you the effort to reach the main dam to enjoy the beauty of the moon. Hold a barbecue dinner party at the public barbecue site nearby might also be a good reunion for family and friends!

Away from the bustling city, this hostel is the best pick for stargazing and full moon admiring. You may stay in our hassle-free camping 1.0 or 2.0 to further immerse yourself in nature when lying in the tent enjoying the full moon in the sky. If you are up for the challenge, screw up your courage to conquer the 934-metre Lantau Peak for the unbeatable sunrise at hilltop in the next morning!
