Just don't do it!
Central, cheap (for Hong Kong), free coffee.
There are two blocks of kennel-like hostels in Nathan Road - the Mirador and the Chongqing. Just say no to any Chongqing ones, like the Tokyo Hostel. The lifts are bad in both blocks, but in the Chongqing it's beyond a joke. When I stayed at in the Mirador block, the rooms were tiny, but at least the staff were friendly. No such luck in the Tokyo Hostel. They messed up my booking, so I was put in the wrong room, and then they kept forgetting about it, and pestering me all evening wondering what I was doing in that room. On about the third round on enquiries , one guy wanted to use the phone in my room to ask what to do, and he saw I'd put a towel on the floor to step on after having a shower, rather than tread on the filthy old mat provided. He seemed genuinely shocked, complaining that they have to wash those towels. So he accepted that the mat was too dirty for his towels, but perfectly fine for my feet. Kettle ran out of water (not trivial - tap water is non-drinkable, so kettle water is very important) and when I rang reception to get someone to re-fill, they were all asleep, at 9am in a 24hr hostel. Told the girl if only there had been some spare water containers,I would have gladly re-filled kettle myself - she put her hands to her ears. It was all too much, even the offer of help. They all just want to get back to sleep. Found everything about Chongqing Mansions extremely unpleasant. If I must return to HK in the future, I'll just have to dig a little deeper.
