Great location and value for money!
Location, Price, Value
Stay was OK, good location and relatively cheap. However, it feels unsafe and there were cockroaches!

Unclean, overpriced !
The internet, location (maybe)
The rooms are not clean, especially the individual rooms. They are tiny, with no windows. The air conditioner was full of mould and the bed sheets had not been changed. I had to request them to change them. Moreover, the location of the hotel (although it is very convenient for moving around) is not good. The building feels a bit insecure with so many people wandering around and offering you things.

Poor Facilities
great location, thats all
Well, I know this is a budget hostel, but still im a little bit disappointed with the facilities. I reserved a triple bed room. First, they didn't have a receptionist, only a staff and then he called his boss to verify my stay. It made me reluctant to ask information about Hong Kong. Second, the room was so tiny as expected. But... the bathroom was very disappointing. I know it was small, but the door was so hard to be closed. It needed to be locked, but once I tried to lock it, it couldn't be opened again. Thanks God few minutes later I could open it after played with the key. After that, we didn't lock it, didn't care if the door was opened a little bit while we were taking a shower. Third, we wanted to leave our luggage for one night (since we planned to go to Macau without bringing many stuff). The boss gave us very unreasonable price, 100 HKD for 3 luggage for 1 night! He said he had no place so it costs a little bit expensive. While I heard from my friend who stayed in other hostel, one luggage only costs 10 HKD per night! At first, I thought, the poor facilities was reasonable with the low price (155 USD for 3 nights), but when I compared it to Tokyo Hostel where I stayed after came back from Macau (it cost the same fee), well, New China Yan Yan Guesthouse was very..... disappointing. I don't mind with the lift queue since Chungking Mansion consists of many hostel with limited lift, but still I feel disappointed with this hostel. Budget hostel does not mean will make you uncomfortable to stay. Instead, there are many guesthouse or hostel that make you comfortable to stay there for many nights. But, New China Yan Yan Guesthouse is not one of them.

Didn't like it as my first impression.
Cheap - thats it.
I was with my family and didn't realize it wasn't ideal for family. The Indians staying in that building are kind of annoying. I went to HongKong to see some Cantonese and not Indians. No offense but didn't like staying in ChungKing because of them. Good thing there are Cantonese police officers who maintain safety in that building. These Indians must learn some manners. Leave your stupidity back to India - please behave yourselves.

Nice staff, great price, nice room
Nice staff, great price, nice room
The Yan Yan guest house is called the New China Guess house. So don't look for the Yan Yan to find the place when you are in lobby waiting for the lobby. It is a nice place to stay overall. The room is clean, however, it is the smallest of most of the hotel rooms in the ChungKing mansions. They also don't provide shampoo or soap in the room and you have to ask for them. Other than that, the African American gentleman who is the main staff personnel is nice and quick. I do find myself going back there when there is a good rate despite the smaller the regular room. The price is worth the stay.
