Mental sick after few hours rest”
After read the bad reviews, I thought i can tolerate such budget hostel. Who knows, this is not the case. 1. This property does not liaise with agoda but only deal with booking.com. When arrived, this hostel staff told us the booking show in their system is 1 double bed instead of 1 double bed and 1 single bed. The staff asked us contact agoda ourself to settle this as this is not their problem. 2. Came to no choice, we stay for the night without arguing much. We been asked for HKD 100 as key deposit. 3. Then, as the booking type is “pay at property”, we ask about the payment, they said pay upon you check out. 4. During 12am-4am few hours rest, mental torture because the room is terrible small, window broken, terrible curry indian smell keep fly into room, downstair of the building are full of indian or arabian people, you will get shock as you feel like you are in another world but not Hong Kong, my wife and myself was having terrible mental sick in such terrible small room with size 5m sqft, my wife cannot breath well and feel stress , anxiety and cannot talk well, at 4am we want to leave this hell places by go to counter to ask to check out. 5. The staff said okay and tell us there will be no refund of the payment. We were shock! Because how could they can charged my credit card with my consent?! I never show them my credit card, i never sign any slip !!! The staff again, said they only deal with booking.com but not agoda! They are allow to charge my credit card! Horrible! Please do not stay this hotel, unless you can sleep in a dog cage or unless you think you are strong enough to handle anxiety consequence of staying such small room!

Terrible building - DO NOT BOOK”
The location was great but the accommodation TERRIBLE - do no book any accommodation at this location - we paid for the accommodation but did not stay in it. We were a group of 3 young females travelling together. 1) the location was VERY seedy with a lot of unsavory characters, we did not feel safe. There were cameras in the lift (which i assume is because a lot of incidents happen there) the stairwells were dark and dirty. There were many men giving us dirty stares and propositioning us. (Most of the people in the building looked like they were either on drugs or doing something illegal) 2) the location was dirty! and the room were just as bad. There was cockroaches (saw 3 in the room) 3) there is no bathroom. There is only a toilet in the accommodation (the description is FALSE) I recommend that you BOOK ELSEWHERE

Worth Every Penny!”
Price, Location, Staff
We had a great stay at the hostel. It was a bit confusing checking in as the reception area was a different area (and zone) from the hostel itself but overall the staff was very friendly. He initially gave us a room for 4 with the intention of moving us the next night but he let us keep the room for 4 people instead. Free coffee, warm water near the hostel door, refrigerator and microwave available for communal use. The room itself was tiny but clean - and most of all there was housekeeping everyday; they refreshed our toiletries and towels. Overall I would recommend this place to budget travelers just looking for a place to rest at night. Chungking Mansions is notorious in itself - best to read up on it before choosing to stay there. We were quite surprised at first but eventually got used to the... ambiance/crowd/smells. Elevators are crowded, slow and questionable at best - expect that you will wait 5 minutes or so per ride.

Super small room”
The room is super small, the room is the size of one queen size bed, no space to walk. The room we got is not the room we booked. There are tiny cockroaches in the room and the hot water shower is on and off with hot water. If you go on a budget trip and only want a room to sleep, this is recommended.

Worth it for travelling with tight budget”
The place was really clean and the owner is really nice.. our problem only the space of room..it's really tiny but overall okay. I'll recommend this place if you're travelling with tight budget. The location is really great and you can explore Hongkong with the easiest way, travelling with MTR because it's really near Tsim Sam Tsui and East Tsim Sam Tsui station

Best Location ”
Probably the best location in Kowloon. Direct bus A21 from the international airport to the hostel. Stopped in front of the mansion. Bad point of the hostel was the room too small for couple, ensuite will not fix an overweight customer. TV totally not working. Need to queue up for the lift as only accommodate at least 5 to 6 passengers excluding overweight.

Arrived HK at night and check-in late at 21:00 but the hostel leave room booked and paid to another one. It's wrong and shouldn't do. Hostel let me wait for a new room. Elevator's too small and a lot of people to used.

Cheap hostel, great location!”
Location (near MTR), clean room, found on the 3F
Recommending this hostel to anyone who's looking for a cheap room in a great location. (Although Chungking Mansion is quite a sketchy place, the people outside are fairly harmless) it's super near the MTR, the 7-11 and there's a Cafe de Coral & SaSa beside it. Plus Harbour City and Granville Road is walking distance. Also, they clean the room everyday and change the sheets. There's also free coffee and although the room's a bit small, the walls aren't paper thin. It's also good that it's just at the 3F so if the line riding the lift gets too long you have no problem taking the stairs.

Great location, value for money”
Location, price
This hostel is in a good location, close to Victoria harbor and lots of shopping. It's reasonably good value for money. The room was quite clean but the bed sheets were very dirty. The room is very small but this is what you expect when you stay in Chungking mansion. The bathroom was clean but small, but the toilet didn't work very well. We only stayed a couple of nights, anymore and we would have changed hotels.

Will not stay again”
Price and location
Room management was not organized as we were transferred to different rooms each day and even on different blocks. We booked 2 family rooms and 1 double room and we had a problem with the double room as aircon not working well. We also asked an extra mug since only one mug is given in the room but the personnel clearly stated NO. Though, Price and location is really the best part, other than that, I won't recommend this hotel as service and good public relations are primary important. I am a frequent traveler who have stayed in different places and I must say, the service of this hostel is below average. Please try other hostels in chungking mansions, I believe there are far better.

Cheap and good location”
Good location, nice staff, quite clean
The room is quite clean. Sheets, pillow cases and blanket are clean. No roaches or pests etc in the room. The room is really small. Towels had stains so we didn't use them since we brought our own. Fridge had a dead cockroach in it hence we didn't dare to use any of their shared facilities outside of the room. Water heater has some issues as well. Staffs are quite nice and friendly. Chungking mansion itself is quite scary because of the black Americans and Indians on the ground floor especially on weekends. But good location - MTR is just opposite. Will stay here again but won't recommend solo female travelers to stay in Chungking mansion.

VERY REASONABLE PRICE IF YOU BOOK EARLY”
Location, Price, Newly Refurbished
Good. We'll except for the few things -- The elevators are such a pain in the arse. Almost always full. Good thing our rooms are on the 3rd floor, so we can easily access the stairs. The "manager" during our 8 days stay there was quite difficult to deal with. well at least at first. They wouldn't let us exchange/barter booked days in the hotel, they end up offering us lower rates but we've already decided and booked for a different hostel of the same floor for a cheaper price than their first offer. So we checked out for one night and came back for the rest of the booked dates. Some of the blankets and towels are stained. During our last night there was a leaking (of a yellowish material. God knows what that was.) on the ceiling and they transfered us to a different room. The "free" bottled waters in the fridge are actually refilled with tap water. So yeah, just so you know. Good Points -- Booked the family room and surprisingly it's just adequate for 4 adults. though the sizes of the bathrooms defer per room. Super clean (maybe the cleanest in Chungking Mansion) or maybe just because it's newly refurbished. To the cleaning guys, please maintain the cleanliness and newness. There's a microwave, fridge, flat iron, electric pot (water heater) and free coffee for everyone. Location A++ Just across Tsim Sha Tsui station, few minutes walk form Ave of stars and Harbour City and a few minutes ride away from Kowloon Ferry Terminal. There' a bus stop from and to the airport a few meters just across the street.
