              Very Accessible!”

              Great location! The different attractions are just a walk away from the guest house. TST train staton is just a minute away. The A21 bus stop (Middle Road, Nathan Road) is very near the Chungking Mansion. Room area is small but it's ok since most of the time you're outside to tour and it has a separate toilets and shower per room. No need to bring an adapter for charging because different charging outlets are available. Love to comeback!

              Scary and horrible area”

              the staff were dubious characters...they are not welcoming...useless talking to them.....we prepaid our trip but decided to leave the hotel after a few minutes of checking in...we tried our luck looking for hotels to stay in the middle of the night. We fear for our safety. The staff are not locals and are not welcoming from the very start. They provide instructions and if you don't get it the first time, they will be irate. This accommodation should not be included in Agoda as this place is not acceptable by any means. My travel group learned that cheap is not always practical and reasonable -- this one clearly explained all that. Customers beware of Chungking Mansions! Do not spoil your vacation. Scariest area in Hong Kong.

              Close to mtr, cheap, normal

              I stayed for 3nights. Couldn't find their reception on the first day. Spend 1hr looking for it. Bad attitude. Room was clean, looks like newly renovated, I can find some tiles used for renovation under my bed. Toilet really small compared to others Budget hostel. The most ridiculous thing is, the plug of hair dryer can't reach socket. When I tried to ask the staff, he literally ran away. Laugh die me.

              clean room

              been to HK for 2nd time but will definitely recommend this as against to hostels in Mirador(except for the ground floor ambience -lots of middle east nationalities that offer tickets etc.)the registration staff, Stephen is very nice. The room is very small but what more to expect for a hostel in HK? surprisingly , the room is very clean.

              Choatic and dangerous

              The room is small and not worth the value of money paid. The entire Changchin building is full of this type of mini-hotels, renotated within each apartment. You may have small windows but cannot see outside at all. I will not pay more than 50 USD per night. The first floor is chaotic with different backgrounds of people. You will see money exchanges, electronics, and food shops. It is a little dangerous to live here. Plus the eleavator is very small, with 5 people at max. load. Highly not recommend for couples, not to mention with children. Will not book this hotel for sure next time.

              These are all based on our experience. First is the staff, they won't treat you like a customer, no nice talking and all. Room is so small and bathroom is so so so small. Also the room is not clean enough, there's dust and insects. The building is a mess, so many people and awful smell in front and on the ground floor where the guests have to take the elevator which can only fit 5 to 7 persons (so there's always line).

              Not for solo female traveller”

              The location is much convenient. But as a solo female traveller, this would not be recommendable. Never felt comfortable staying for 6 nights given the reputation of Chungking Mansions building (better have your research in google, which i failed to do first). I was far scared on my accom. Than touring all around hongkong. This accom. is located inside Chungking Mansions bldg. Many indians offering for accommodation outside the Building. If you still choose here for cheaper accom., do not check in late night as the owners get aggitated and do not even look at the indians/africans downstairs... just go straight to the elevator. When someone knocks at your door, do not open. Instead, talk behind close doors. The owner checks on your room daily - but no cleaning. This is a budget hotel. Stay at your own risk.

              Arrived past midnight because of our delayed flight. Attendant/owner was in the hostel premises but was unhappy in receiving us. Understandable maybe because he was concerned. But the manner how he expressed was unpleasant. Rooms were clean, frequent changing of sheets. They even had slippers for you to use yet used. Hallway felt and looked untidy for there was a portion in the hall where all sheets and undies are hung. But location is STELLAR. You will have easy access to everything. Though room is cramped, unfriendly but concerned host, you will be rewarded having all access yo everything

              Just nice.”

              Good location , have wifi, near to MTR

              My stay here was nice, because we only need the room for sleep and put luggages. The hostel located in central area of Hong Kong , easy access to public transport such as MTR and if you plan to go to Macau, you can reach Ferry Port by walking. Also easy to do shopping and find food. The size of the room is very small, but for budget trip/ backpackers this hostel is recommended.

              Location is the only thing this place has going for it

              In short we didn't stay... We checked in and was shown to our room. It was very small, that was to be expected however the room had no windows was tiled floor to ceiling, the sheets on the bed were pale pink and see through. The bed was wedged in the corner of the room with no way to get in or out of it for more than one person, unless of course you are proficient at leap frog. after the bed was in the room there was about 40 cm on one side before you hit the wall.... the bathroom was not a bathroom but a toilet with a hose over the top of the toilet and a drain on the ground. Now dont get me wrong if i was a young early 20s traveler I could have made this work and spent the extra money on booze... however we opted to leave the room and spend the extra for a livable room not a tiled cell, don't let the pictures fool you!
