i will not return!
this place gave me a bad experience in honk kong. according to my hotel voucher, it is 2-bed mixed dormitory with shared bathroom, and i booked and paid on october 11, 2015 before i reached the hotel for 3 months. in fact they gave me a 4-bed mixed dormitory. i am a woman and they want me to share the room with other 3 guys. the place is very dirty and smelly. lucky me! finally, i could find another place to stay during my new year trip even though i need to pay more. can you guess how much i paid during such a busy time in hong kong?

Value for money!
First, the hotel was clean (room and comfort room)! . Location excellent! Staff very helpful and courteous.
My only complaint about this hostel is that they have no lockers where you can put your things. There are four beds in the room where I stayed so you can never tell.Luckily, I did not lose anything. The worst part of it all is the presence of so many Indian nationals at the lobby of Chungking Mansion soliciting and offering rooms and other amenities to tourists. This, of course, is not Kamal Inns' responsibility. Generally speaking, I got my money's worth.

Kamal inn was not what we saw on the posted photo
Nice staff and accessibility to mtr and bus
They knew we were ladies but agreed to book us with guys on the room. Kamal "inn" has a 2 double deck bed and not a 2 single bed room. Also they do not easily answer phone inquiries and inform us rrgarding our request before our said date of arrival. It was a bit traumatizing and waste of time to rearrange a new room at the day of your vacation. It took 2hours of our precious time where we should have been to somewhere else.

Not so good since the t&b is too small that you cannot seat on the toilet.

Location is extremely close to MTR. Manager was pleasant and as helpful as he could be. Bedding was washed after 3 days.
I didn't know what to expect coming to Hong Kong, but I was taken aback by the state of the hostel, considering I've stayed in a few. You could do worse, but you can definitely do better on Hong Kong Island. Staff were friendly though, and Chungking Mansion is definitely a 'to do' on the HK itinerary, but I feel I could've found a better deal elsewhere. The room was in no way like the picture I saw. More prison-like interior with all sorts of hardware cluttering up the passages. But the hostel is in the quieter block of the mansion and that's a winner already, considering the queues to the other elevators. All in all the experience was alright, but I'm definitely looking elsewhere in future trips.
