More than just a place to rest your head, Mei Ho House is a rare glimpse into Hong Kong's grassroots lifestyle—right before its economic boom half a century ago. Originally a public housing unit built in 1954, it has since been converted into a chic hostel featuring a small museum that displays more than 1,200 pieces of rare objects from its former inhabitants. Rooms are predictably sparse, but the free breakfast and sociable common areas proffer an immersive experience that's hard to replicate elsewhere.
