Heavy luggage can be such a drag on the Hong Kong tourist looking to wander. While left luggage facilities in Hong Kong exist, they can be rather thin on the ground. We’ve listed a few left luggage facilities and lockers in Hong Kong below for your reference.
Best overall left luggage location: Hong Kong Station
This centrally based option (located in a major Hong Kong transport hub) 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, at rates that compare favorably to the airport left luggage’s.
It costs HK$57 for up to three hours of storage, HK$79 for up to twenty four hours and then HK$116 per piece for every twenty four hour period beyond that; cash only. The desk can be found tucked away in a corner on the airport check-in level of the station, on Level G close to Exit B.

Best left luggage location in Kowloon
If you’re staying in Tsim Sha Tsui, the Hong Kong Station left luggage desk (see above) is probably still your most convenient option. For travelers in West Kowloon, or travelers planning to catch the airport express from Kowloon Station, they might find the left luggage service in Kowloon Station closer at hand.
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 at the In-town Check-in Hall, open from 6am to 1am daily.

Best left luggage for Hong Kong Airport
There is a manned left luggage desk at Hong Kong International Airport that is open from 5.30am-1.30am every day. Those timings will cover just about all flights. The prices aren’t cheap, however. The hourly rate is HK$12 and each 24 hours is charged at HK$140.
You’ll find the left luggage station at Arrivals Level (L3), Terminal 2 (part of the non-restricted Area). More details on their official site.
If you’ve been kicked out of your hotel early and need somewhere to store luggage for the day ahead of your evening flight, you can probably use in-town check in. This innovative service lets customers of most airlines check their bags in up to 24 hours in advance of their flight from Hong Kong Station and Kowloon Station. You will need to buy an airport express ticket to use the service. More details on their official site.
Best left luggage for travelling to China
If you’re taking a day or two in China during your Hong Kong holiday, you will probably be travelling by train to Shenzhen or Guangzhou from Hung Hom Station. There are a limited number of left luggage lockers at Hung Hom station.
These are priced depending on the size of the locker; from HK$30-HK$70 for the first two hours and then HK$30-HK$70 for every further six hours. If you are travelling on a train to Shanghai or Beijing, the China Travel Service counter will also store luggage for up to one week at cheaper prices.
Best left luggage location for travelling to Macau
The Hong Kong to Macau ferry terminal at Shun Tak offers luggage storage. It’s HK$20 per piece per hour. While the Hong Kong to Macau ferries run all night, the luggage storage center is only open between 6:45am and midnight.
You can find the Luggage Services Counter at Level 2, Macau Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal, Shun Tak Centre. More details on their official site.
Best left luggage for long term storage
Whether you’re travelling around Asia for a bit or moving to Hong Kong, if you need long term luggage storage there are a couple of good options. Spacebox will pick up and deliver your luggage with 24 hours’ notice.
Their prices start from $379 for each month, although there are further charges if you want access to the box within that time period. SC storage is a more traditional option with a dozen fixed locations around the city. The storage is in lockers and you have access to them twenty four hours a day. Prices start from HK$485 each month. More details on their official site.
