“Small, but welcoming. Mostly Asian crowd, mixed ages. As a white male, I was able to find it welcoming without judgement. Easy to find. Very clean during my visit.“

do not waste your money
“$150 entry for such a small place, can not even changed without getting pumped into, even when the place with only 5 patrons ! Then they charge you $5 dollar per extra towel?! What a cheap way to RIP you off! Place only can host about 10 people, more than that it is too crowded! Never waste your money there!“

Small sauna, unfriendly staff
“1.This sauna is small.
2.When I enter the sauna and asked the promotion, the unfriendly staff 'under 50 years old' just said like this and used the bad tone. It was very disappointing.
3.Too few people
Just around 5 person in there at 1800. What? It's too few people even though the sauna have more facilities, but I can't to use.
I don't want to go there again.“

“The place is extremely small, and packed with old local HK guys. "Pricey" is how I would describe this place. “

“ARENA management have confirmed that CCTV is only used in public areas and not in spaces such as the dark room or maze. The cameras are white, in plain view (not hidden) and are there for everyone’s protection.“

Very amazing sauna
“I am not surprised to find small establishments in HK but this sauna is very interesting. It is so eye opening indeed! It is my first time to find a sauna in HK with bench n sling tailor made for FF. Bravo! I will come back again and try these out with the local Chinese guys. So amazing!“

“I am a European and I was refused entry to this sauna by the guy @ the front desk. Only Asian people and local people he said. When i asked why. He answered soo sorrrryyyyy but get out we dont want you. Thats it. Plain and simple.“

Qué triste! What a pity!
“Qué pena! Gays discriminando a gays por su color de piel! En Europa todos son bienvenidos. Los propios chinos no deberían apoyar un local que discrimina a gays. Les gustaría a ellos que les hiciéramos lo mismo???“

skip this place
“In the past, ABC-Alexander group was the top sauna of the industry: they used to be the best. I don't know what's happened to them lately. ABC and Alexander have gone out of business. The newly opened Arena is small, smelly and there is an obvious lack of management. Now I will only go to the 3 biggest saunas in Hong Kong: Hutong, Jungle, and Myway. Even Big Top or Birds are better choices. It really is sad to see how far they have fallen. :-(“

Just experienced a disaster
“MY FOOT GOT SCALDED IN STEAM ROOM! The floor near the steam generator is boiling when you step on there, you got scalded. It's really hurts. Trap in darkness is terrible. I saw someone else got scalded too.
Meanwhile, I went on Saturday around 5pm, that's just WAY TOO CROWDED. People stuck in everywhere outside the dark room area. Only few rooms is provided, people have no room to play, just got stuck, its really annoying with NO FUN. I cannot play and leave soon. That's really terrible and I won't go there anymore.“
