Mighty flist!

Because I fail at life, I've never been proper travelling on my own, and thus have no idea how to find hostels which are (1) cheap; (2) sensibly located; and (3) not full of rapists and axe murderers[1].

Most places I'm happy to just turn up and wing it. Hong Kong, I am not so happy with this plan. We are there for 7 days (6 nights) and I don't want to have to move around, and ideally I'd like to book somewhere before we leave... but I am overwhelmed by the gazillions on Google.

Ideally, I'd like to be on HK Island, in the Mid-levels or Causeway Bay/Wanchai area, rather than Kowloon, because I am an Island girl and I have an irrational dislike of Kowloon[2]. It's a bit like the London north/south of the river thing, except I've never had a problem with that...

So: how can I find a suitable hostel? What clever Google result-limiting terms am I missing??

[1] Or, y'know, anything else nasty along those lines. Chainsaw murderers, for example. I know there's no real way of telling but there must be some indications, surely?

[2] For the 0.001% of people who haven't had me tediously slip this into conversation - I used to live in HK, but it was 12 years ago, and we had a flat, so I never paid much attention to hostels.
