    Clean and great location ”

    I picked a room for three and it was a bit small but not a big problem. The beds were clean and the room was cleaned daily. They offered WiFi and cold filtered water was available. The shower head had good water pressure and did have hot water. The a/c worked well and they had a small refrigerator inside the room as well as a microwave out in the hall. The only con was having to wait in a long line to use the elevator. Overall it was a nice experience for a first timer at a hostel. Would come here again.

    Clean and central but only one toilet”

    I stayed in a dorm room, big enough for 4 beds but little else. However I was only using it for sleeping so that's fine. The place was very clean, there was free water from water dispenser hot and cold. There was only one bathroom to share amongst potentially 20 or so guests so things could get quite busy. Good location though, very central and close to mrt stop.

    Twin Room”

    Room was quite small but very clean and comfortable enough to sleep in after a day of gallivanting in HK. They clean the rooms and change towels everyday. Bathroom is small too but is squeaky clean. Heater is working. TV working but only 2 or 3 english channels and rest are chinese. Internet is strong...I was able to work. Drinking water provided -they have water dispenser and airpot in every floor/block. Location is excellent. Hostel is inside Chungking Mansion (along Nathan Road). About 2-3min walk to Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station. About 10min walk to the harbor (Ave.of Stars) About 10-15min walk to/from HK China Ferry terminal (we arrived via ferry from Macau). Malls, watch, clothing, beauty, souvenir stores everywhere. Lots of restaurants...you’ll never ran out of food choices. There were around 4 or 5 money changers at the ground floor. Make sure to compare rates first. Staff and customer service are great. Reception was super friendly and can speak English. Check in and check out was a breeze. There’s a deposit of 100 HKD for the proxy card, which is refundable of course upon checkout. Reception by the way, is on the 16th floor. Make sure to read your Agoda confirmation for the direction. My only complaint is the elevator. It’s super slow. Queue to the elevator can take up to several minutes especially in the evening (when everyone’s going back to their rooms I guess). Good thing, our room is only on the 6th floor, we can take the stairs going down. There’s a passage going to the mall in the 3rd floor and you’ll come out in a Cafe, so ideal if you’re looking for a breakfast/brunch place in the morning. Will definitely stay here again in my next visit.

    Exceeded our expectation”

    Booked this hostel room regardless the negative reviews about Chungking Mansion. At first, we were so hesitant to go there but since our booking has already been confirmed we wanted to give it a try. When we arrived at Tsim Sha Tsui where this is located, we were so surprised that it wasn’t so bad as it sounds in the reviews afterall. There were so many people offering you things around but all things are good if you just don’t mind them. But hey, give them a smile! :) This is located at the 16th floor of the building so if there are so many people queued on the elevator you just gotta wait for a few minutes but still, all is good. When we first arrived at Ashoka, people (the indians and filipino ates) on the reception were very accomodating. They made sure that we got the room we asked for (especially our request). We loved how the room was so clean and also didn’t mind the small floor area since we don’t stay much the whole day. It fits all four of us. The location was accessible To MTRs and so many other stores. For our overall experience, the hostel and the staffs itself has exceeded our expectation. If we were to return to HK, we are definitely staying here again! You guys should give them a try!

    my favourite hostel for some reason”

    the top of the bunk bed of mixed dorm is uncomfortable with low ceiling and big gapped ladder, and bathroom is hard to use. however, cleanliness, reasonable price and friendly staffs make everything acceptable (i booked 2 nights at a discount price of apx. 140HK$ and 105HK$). it’s surely more than avarage for backpackers, but could be tough for normal tourists.

    The place that we had was very clean and had its own bathroom. There was a common fridge outside and the staff was always very attentive and helpful to our needs. The size of the room was the only big con as if you were like us who traveled as a couple, it would be impossible to move around freely if both of you were standing up.

    If you were only looking for a place to sleep and be in the city area, this is the best deal for you. Whenever I go to Hong Kong, Ashoka / Delta Hostel is always my choice because of its proximity to the MTR and all the hippest places in the city - everything is within reach in this place.

    good budget hostel”

    Booked a double room for myself for two nights, Friday and Saturday, I was given a triple room with one double bed and one single bed at the 8th Floor (reception is at 16th Floor). They require 100HKD deposit for the key card. Good: 1. Location (Chungking Mansions building) is very close to train station and shopping centres and restaurants 2. Secured floor, security code for the main door and key card for the room 3. Safe location, open 24 hours 4. Well maintained, newly tiled room and bathroom 5. Free toothbrush and toothpaste, towels 6. Air-conditioned room with electric fan, TV, phone and blower 7. Free fast Wi-Fi 8. Staff are friendly 9. Cheap rates compared to other budget hostel, value for money Bad: 1. Only one lift, very slow and long queue during rush hour, this is a major inconvenience/issue 2. Room is small, fits only the bed/s, but since I was given a free upgrade I had a spare bed for my luggage and stuff 3. Don't expect nice window view Overall, good value for money considering that accommodation in HK is expensive. If you are on a tight budget and doesn't mind staying in a small room and queuing for the lift then you might consider this hostel.

    Location and budget wise, Ashoka is a good choice. The staff are great, they were a good help in giving directions, plus the receptionists are Pinays. They also sell cheaper tickets for Disney, Ngong Ping and Ocean Park. The room is cozy for sleeping only as expected since price is cheap. To top it all, our stay at Ashoka is good. We'll book at the same guest house when we go back. 😊
