Left luggage facilities in Hong Kong can be thin on the ground. The few left luggage facilities and lockers there are in Hong Kong are listed below.

Best left luggage location - This centrally based option is the best bet for most travellers. Hong Kong Station, which is an Airport Express station, offers a manned left luggage desk that is open from 6am to 1am every day of the week. It costs HK$45 for up to three house of storage, HK$60 for up to twenty four hours and then HK$90 for every twenty four hour period beyond that.

The desk can be found tucked away in a corner on the airport check-in level of the station.

Best left luggage location in Kowloon – If you’re staying in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Station left luggage desk is probably still your most convenient option. For West Kowloon, or if you are planning to catch the airport express from Kowloon Station, then the left luggage service in Kowloon Station is better located. The opening hours and prices for leaving luggage are exactly the same as with Hong Kong Station (listed above). You’ll find the left luggage counter on level G of the station.
