The room is extremely small, being 6ft 2 my feet were touching the opposite wall when i was laying down in bed. The bathroom likewise was tiny. The hostel is in a huge busy building with a lot of people bugging you to eat at there restaurants but to be honest if you are only staying here for a little... More

If you've been to Hong Kong before and stayed in Chungking Mansions (or to a lesser extent Mirador Mansion further up Nathan Road), you know the drill: a tiny, as in no floor space after putting down your backpack, but functional (fridge, AC, fan, TV, sometimes a safe) room, with an attached wetroom and optional, but rather likely, cockroaches. However,... More

The rooms were very2 small, with small toilet attched. It is clean. Pls do not expect much, as it is a hostel. All 4 guesthouse are under same management. The lift to hostel is terrible, only one lift for so many people. Sometimes i have to walk downstairs from 7th floor. May consider to stay again if no other better... More

I staid there last weekend - or, better said, planned to. I arrived at two at night, which was fine with them. Other than that getting to the hostel you shouldnt have problems with hawkers it is located in the heart of Kowloon. The guys at the reception were friendly, but my room was terrible. I couldnt stretch my arms... More

It's a guesthouse... So don't complain if youbare looking for a service , ambience, spacious like a hotel. This guesthouse is located at Kowloon. Just 50 meters away from station Tsim Tsa Tsui (red line). It is in the center of shopping stalls and near to the walk of stars. I can say the location is right on spot!!! The... More

The location in Kowloon is good. Service very bad. Rooms small and quite dirty. I paid 56USD per night booking online and I found out it's much cheaper if you don't book and you negotiate with one of the many guys that approach you in the street offering rooms. It's the very lowest end accomodation, so if you get it... More

Despite the fact that this guesthouse is one of the countless ones in Chungking Mansions we had a surprisingly excellent stay. We stayed 10 nights in total and we're lucky enough to get a room on the 10th floor, in the new part of the guesthouse. Ok, Rooms are tiny tiny tiny, just the bed, an entry point of 1,5... More

I booked a room in this hostel twice. The first time, I booked a dorm room and the second time I was upgraded to a single room because the dorms were fully booked. Both of the rooms were quite small with little room for my backpack, but as spacey rooms are nowhere to be found in Hong Kong's hostels, this... More

I was pleased with the City Guesthouse/Paris Guesthouse/Germany Guesthouse (apparently they are linked together in some way, with one registration desk.) I booked a dorm-style room with four bunks. Three were occupied. The room was very small, and smelled a little unpleasant, but it had its own bathroom and shower and was very clean. Good, reasonably fast free wireless. I... More
