Youth Matters
Hostel for co-living and co-working
It is not always possible or easy to live at home and there can be many reasons. The HKFYG Tai Po Youth Hostel provides an opportunity for young people to take their first step towards independent living through transitional housing.

HKFYG Taipo Youth Hostel cum Youth SPOT

With creative use of space, the hostel will accommodate 80 18-30 year-olds. By living together and learning how to cope on their own, residents will learn essential daily life skills including financial planning, time management and decision making. This welcome stop-gap for up to five years will be ready for occupation in 2018/19.

HKFYG Taipo Youth Hostel cum Youth SPOT funded by the Home Affairs Bureau
