Except sleepers, they also have second class seats.

Thank you for your inquiry.

If you want to buy a whole cabin of your own, you are recommended to choose train D901, D903 and D927. On these high speed overnight rides, passengers can buy a whole cabin if still tickets available. You can input one of the passengers’ information twice in our booking form and leave us a remark about the whole cabin request in the booking form. We will notice it and buy a whole cabin for you.

Which train station should I use if I am staying at Mori's Garden Hostel Sea World?
I am flexible with time, so both G71 and G79 works for me. I want to know which station is closer and more convenient to use? Hope for your kind advice.

Your hostel is indeed far from both Shenzhen North and Futian Station, 20 to 30km away! However, Futian station is convenient to use as there is subway line 2 in service there. You can take line 2 from Futian to Shuiwan, exit D. Then hostel is only about 500m walking!

They are different places. The train station is about 3 metro stops to Futian Checkpoint where you can change to the MTR to HK. However, at this station, there are high speed rail service to HK directly. They can be very good option for your trip.
