Friendly and Hot Action
“Nice mix of Hong Kong / mainland Chinese / Westerners. Really hot action this Saturday afternoon for this Hong Kong based 50 year old English guy.. Highly recommended. As I was leaving I noticed the 2 guys in charge were preparing a dinner of lamb chops and mashed potato - and then they asked me to join them! Haha, so friendly, especially for Hong Kong :) Next time, Thanks, guys.“

Very friendly staff and management
“I went here for the first time yesterday and was greeted by the manager, he was very friendly which made me feel assured of a good place, yes it's small but I had some fun. I would say the best time to go would be 4pm during the week. Unfortunately I left today at 5 and things were just starting to heat up, there's locals as well as foreigners.“
Donger on 16-May-2019 | Problem with this review?
“White foreigners get charged 50% more than Asians (150HKD), EVEN THOUGH Hong Kong GDP per head exceeds many European countries.
The attitude of the owner Mr Wah to foreigners is indifferent at best, usually quite rude and arrogant.
If you go insist to pay the HK price (100 HKD) or leave for another sauna..
This is an uncomfortable place to visit: you get changed in a corridor and the cabins don't lock properly so people can open the doors from outside. The whole place is small and awkward. I couldn't wait to leave.“

Tiny place but it doesn't necessarily mean no action
“I am a Chinese living in Sydney Australia.
First time at CE was back in May 2018. It was 3-ish in a Wednesday afternoon when I went in. It was quiet at the beginning but then the place started filling up after 4pm.
Picked up a white guy in the steam room and then had a brief session with him in one of the breakout rooms before playing with him and another white guy and a local guy in the dark room. Then moved on to have a long session with the local guy in a room. Later, met with an American guy to finish the fantastic day.
Given the great experience of the 1st visit, I was under the impression that the same would happen to my 2nd time there six months later, even though I was going with my partner. This time also 3-ish but on Tuesday. Almost no actions there for me until about 7pm - we went out, for an hour or two, to get some food before going back, when I was about to give up. Two young white guys came in. I hooked up with one of them who said he was from South Africa working in Shenzhen in the steam room.
Was told the best time to go there is 4pm-7pm, the busiest time of a day I guess.“

A bit small, smelly and boring
“When there on a weekend and only saw a few older guys. After a while, a local guy came in and we had fun in the room. However, the room was so smelly, and there's no tissue provided! Needs improvement.“

Good venue for white guys
“White guys, regardless of age and look, are likely to attract the mainly over 30 y/o locals at CE Sauna. Most people come in, have fun then leave. Very few people linger on, so, the place is never crowded.“

“Before I left I had a chance to visit CE again. I observed that the peak time is in the afternoon. What I like about the place is the diverse clientele. The place is also comfortable. If you want to relax after some hot action, you can stay in their viewing room which has a bed and lounge chairs. What is more exciting is action still happens in the viewing room which I think is the reason why they placed a bed in it!
I happen to watch a Chinese guy with a Caucasian guy while I was watching a Bel Ami movie! I had the pleasure of watching two shows. One on the tv screen the other one live! CE shows the videos I really like, Bel Ami and latin videos. The action in the steam room was also really hot!
What is more exciting than having six guys intertwined and you are the sixth guy joining them! Just like the steam room which is next to the shower, the sauna is also located after you enter another shower area but in this area, there is a tv showing hot all-male sex videos. You can watch the videos while taking a shower with some guy or having fun in the sauna. One of their cabins also has a tv showing m2m videos. One thing I noticed is that Chinese guys really loves kissing and they really kiss! And the Caucasian guys seems to have a fondness to do Chinese or Asian guys! The Caucasian guys always pair up with Chinese or Asian guys, not with their fellow Caucasians.
The place is conveniently located in a Central area which is near Airport Express giving you another chance of tasting what is hot in Hong Kong while waiting for your flight! I'm definitely cumming back!“
Joey on 24-Jul-2018 | Problem with this review?
CE is indeed going strong. The people who go there are really open and accepting. The guys have no qualms having sex in front of you which is really very nice. A Caucasian guy was being sucked by a young Chinese guy in a the cabin and the door was open for everybody to see. I also had a chance of watching a top South American guy having a threesome with a bottom Chinese guy and bottom black guy in the sauna. He fucked the Chinese guy first then the black guy next. The kissing was really torrid! Everything was just like in the videos that I love to watch. But this one was live! And I can even join it! The place also shows the hottest all-male videos. I'm definitely going back there.

Friendly staff very small place
“This place is very small like an apartment house turned into a sauna (perhaps the staff live there). Very limited space wise and only a few private rooms. The place is very unassuming - don’t expect fancy facilities. If you go at night you will be there by yourself, the busiest time is when they open around 6 ish.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating, I even got a free pass cause when I got there at 8 pm - the place was empty but managed to visit a second time on an earlier time and it was better under the circumstances.“
Ener on 02-Jun-2018 | Problem with this review?
“The good thing is there are quite a few westerners.
The bad things are only condoms and lube in the locker they give you. Not in the rooms which is very inconvenient. Also they give only one towel and if you need a clean dry towel they will charge you a few dollars.
They have a free massage chair which is nice.“

Plenty of action
“This sauna is small, but it is its size that guarantees plenty of action! The steam room was busy, you were openly cruised in the showers, and the relaxation rooms were constantly in use. Staff were very friendly. It's perhaps because I got lucky twice that I am giving this place a positive review but I wasn't the only one having fun...very mixed crowd. Yes, it could do with being a little cleaner, but I don't like my saunas to be temples of marble and opulence.“

“The place is small... true.
The place is not new anymore... true.
The reception guys are often (almost permanently, it seems LOL) eating cooked food... true too.
The number of customers at any given time rarely exceeds 15... yes, true.
But... it is also the hottest, the cruisiest, the most action-filled place in this galaxy.
I will certainly be back !“

“The place is not bad, but not the best either. Its the most posh place in HK, Central but the crowd in comparison is not that good. The diversity is god here, being a South-Asian myself, I was welcomed well.
The place is too small and there was not much action going for a Friday night. I had some group fun in shower & some in cubicles. The hotness level of the guys is medium.“

Bad experience. Smelly place.
“I have been here twice. I would not go back there. The shower area smelled. The small rooms definitely had that fishy odor. I am not sure how the staffs cleaned there after hours.
The local guys looked very dirty as well. Some of them spit loudly in the showers. They never respected or considered the place as a share space with others. Many smoke inside the toilet and left a strong burning odor inside.
The staffs, owners, and customers were gossips. Commenting customer's size, and say things behind others when they could not take rejection. Seriously?“

“Yes, smoker in small tiny bathroom, not good for non smoker like myself, the shower outside the steam room is smelly and the steam room is rank...

Went there twice, then no more
“1st, the entrance fee is 150 hkd, then gave you a member card for next time, so 2nd, only paid 98 hkd.
It is really small and stupid design. Small toilet without water pipe for bottoms, only one.
Only four small rooms, no paper, no condom and gel, so you must bring them into, used out and no more condom later at my 2nd time.
The better thing, good location, so more guests and types, easier to find out yours, but only peak time from 3pm to 6 pm, then so quiet after 6pm, even no one later.
The staffs are nice, fruit and snack free, and water. Never go there again after visiting the wonderful Gateway sauna, for the detail you can check my comment there.“

First time, never again
“Visited there on Tuesday 5.30pm, I assume that there will be crowd especially those after work. Regrettably only 8 person including myself and it seems really crowded within this tiny spaces (only 4 private cabin available and really smelly). I'm an Asian Chinese bottom with average body, but unable to find an available top, other than a hairy 100kgs Caucasian who was sweating in sauna room. Eventually I left after 30 minutes stay empty handed. As a first time visitor, this will be the last time to visit this sauna. I rushed to other sauna afterwards and seeing full of crowd, I know I have to blacklist CE Sauna due to its poor conditions and poor visitor response.“

I recommend this place!
“I have gone here twice, and will go once more before I go back home.
Despite my lack of "perfect" body, these guys loved me. And I loved them right back.
The workers were super friendly. The clientele were mostly sensuous and fun to play with (and had very sexy bodies). Unlike Turkish guys (I'm visiting from Istanbul), nobody tried to engage in unsafe sex. Just perfect.“

Jacuzzi without water
“I went there last Saturday and had some fun with a Thai man and an Aussie. Most people there were local Asians but there were a few white guys and Indian men. The staff were friendly but the place extremely small and the facilities poor. There was a Jacuzzi without water so I thought they were quite creative! There was no changing room so you have to unclothe yourself in front of everyone else. Like some people said it's a hit or miss. I went there in the afternoon and saw some 15 people there and when I left a few hours later there were only 2 or 3.“

A paradise for Caucasians
“It is a small sauna, but very clean with friendly staff.
It seems there are more locals who are keen to have fun with Caucasians. If you are young fit Caucasian, everyone is following you. Although you are not popular at other sauna because of the age or body shape, you will have more chances to have fun with locals as long as you are Caucasian.
As I mentioned the place is very small, but there are sauna, bath tub, team sauna, four rooms, and relaxing cabin. So you have enough place to have fun.“

“I have been couple of times on varied different occasions. It's above the 7/11. The staff is not over friendly neither are they rude. It's hit or miss. Sometimes in the afternoon the sauna has been extremely packed and lot of action in corridors and sometimes non action at all. However you meet that one guy for your pheromones to take over, so one of the not so packed days I met a Pakistani guy and had the best fun ever. I went back the next day and I didn't get lucky.

off Peak perhaps?
“Came here Friday 26/2/16 8:00 - 9:30 thinking it would be peak time... But the whole time I was there it was me.. an Asian uncle and a white uncle! The place is definitely clean ( perhaps cause it's not used?) And has a nice cosy feel about it. Would've been a safe warm place to gather with like minded friends but was dead when I was there. Can anyone tell me best times to go here? thanks“

Facilities are poor
“It was my first time there, the reception is new, politely. It is very small place, towel need to pay if you asked for second one, soap is like water, I think they want to save money. Water is not hot enough. Condom you need to go to the reception to take, not in the room. It is so embarrassing! So you need to re-high again when you back to the room. Door lock is not really secured, some guys opened easily when you are with someone, always open and close, making you busy................. Anyways, if not international guys there, I won't go again.
Water isn't real distilled water. It seems from the water pipe, as I didn't see the cover is sealed. Local guys are crazy horny, they follow you all the time and touch.“

Waste of time and money
“Went in a Thursday night just after 10pm. Perhaps I was unlucky but the staff outnumbered the clients in a ratio of 3 to one. When I left after 5 minutes the staff said why you leaving now - what about the Asian guy in the TV lounge. I told them 1) it was hardly a tv lounge and 2) the guy was more interested in his iPhone.
The venue is tiny. The sauna and steam room fit for 3 people at a maximum. Overall disappointed but c,eat la vie.“

White no Asian!
“Went on a Sunday afternoon around 4pm. It's next to the 7-11 go in the door elevator on your right 2nd floor. The place is small. I mean really small. The day I went it was 75% white and 25% old Asian uncles. I stayed maybe 10-15 minutes. I admit going to any sauna is hit and miss. Today was def a miss. It was clean tho so that's a plus. If you like white guys this is your place.“

Surprised to find a few local guys come up to play almost immediately, which is refreshing because grindr has sucked over here. Had some fun with a local, was hoping for more expats but it was late. Clean, safe, felt comfortable and well looked after. I'd try again during busier hours“

“First time in a bath house. Location is discreetly tucked near the convenience store, so no one can notice unless they are stalking at you. Getting around the area is a breeze but once there, it is not easy to find since they don't have big signs. Upon entry, staffs made us comfortable, all smile. Place is very small but it makes it easier for us to navigate with my friend. Also, they averagely clean. Went there on a weekday, mix of locals and foreigners. Got great encounters with hot foreigners, were my friend and I enjoyed.
Will certainly pay a visit in the future since staffs made us comfortable and we had quality encounters, but will also check out other bath houses to compare. We don't go usually to bath houses, but it's safer and better option than meeting a random guy in Hong Kong.“

Cosy and well equipped.
“Arrived at CE onThursday 15/10/2014 before 17:00 and stayed until around 18:30. Very friendly staff welcomed me at the reception. I've already known it's a small sauna, yet I was surprised that it's well equipped despite of the limit of space. For me, its size was decent as I did not waste most of my time running around searching and tracking guys like the way I did in large saunas. Not many people visiting during my stay yet as a sauna-lover I understand it's not the number of people making a sauna popular. It's all by chance and that evening I was lucky to meet my 'dream' Caucasian guy and had some memorable moments. As an exhibitionist I quite like that the 'curtain' of the private cabin could not be fully closed so other visitors may peek in a little. Anyway, if I have not met the Caucasian, I may then try the massage chair or relax more in the steam room and the sauna, as its cosines just suited me. No doubt that I will visit again if I get the chance.“

Central Escalator Hong Kong
“Actually pretty easy to find - there are 'CE' stickers outside and its above the 7-11. Stunningly small, so lots of loitering around in the corridor if you can't find your man. Steam room is a decent size, but the dry sauna is 3 people max. The jacuzzi, sunbed and other rooms were closed when I was there. Went on Sunday PM - about 15 blokes all shapes and sizes from gym fit to 20's skinnies to past their prime. Staff pleasant. $5 charge for extra towels.“
