Y Loft at Youth Square Awarded With Hotels.com Certificate of Recognition for Quality Guest Services That Makes a Difference in Hostel Staying Experience

HONG KONG, Oct. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Followed by receiving the "Certificate of Excellence" awarded by TripAdvisor for three consecutive years since 2012, Y Loft has received a Hotels.com Certificate of Recognition for its quality services. An array of guest-oriented services by the Y Loft team is continuously appreciated by the international travellers and the industry representatives. Apart from offering some genuine and high quality hostel staying experience, Y Loft has also been hosting a series of arts and culture activities for young visitors.

An inaugural art event, "Arts Oasis @ Y Loft", was held in September 2015 with over 40 local and overseas artists, creative units and students showcasing their artistic philosophy and masterpieces. By transforming a hostel guest room by each participating artist, each room became a unique art gallery featuring not just their artistic masterpiece but also their interpretation of art via some installation within the guest room. More than 3000 visitors had come and witnessed this unique story-telling art event.

Artistic experience at Y Loft is always a surprise for all hostel guests. There is a 3D photo corner next to the reception area where guests could pose for an extra shot and make their stay a remarkable one. In addition, there have been different art workshops for all hostel guests. For instance, in mid October, a group of young visitors had joined the "One Piece Uncut" Origami Art Workshop to experience world-class paper folding arts during their stay.  

In order to seize every festive celebration with the hostel guests, a Halloween party and concert will be held on October 30 and 31 at Y Loft and Youth Square, respectively. We value every opportunity to make the stay a relaxing, fun and joyful experience.

Y Loft has always been dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility. In late October, Y Loft team visited elderly center to share tips of good health and play games with seniors who also value every minute of interaction with the youngsters.
