Thx to all the comments here I was mentally prepared and yes, especially when you arrive with your luggage you will be greeted by a hord of Indians/Africans who try to sell you anything (room, bags, handwatches and one time a full list of drugs). But just see it funny, or as woman say "don't touch me", it helps. However... More

I have stayed at this hostel for 4 nights during my trip in Hongkong. The location is super good, near the harbor, Avenue of Stars where you can have great view in HongKong and there are 2 stations nearby. One is opposite the building and one is on the right side..only few steps . The room was okay, small but... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the rooms clean, serviced and more than adequate for sleeping and showering. They are small, but far from cramped. We had a twin room for two and the space was never an issue. The location is also superb and the price the best you can find on a budget. The building is... More

I stayed at Ashoka Hostel in the famous Chung King Mansion at Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui Hongkong and when everyone hears about Chung King Mansion, they usually well had bad comments. But honestly, it's not that pretty bad. The location is superb! You're in the middle of Hongkong Island and Kowloon Island where it's the best location that you... More

Go by subway to Tsim Sha Tsui station, Exit C and when you exit right on the... More

So... the Ashoka served a purpose and gave my sweet heart and I a place to stay in the heat of it during our New Year celebration. However, the amenities are scarce and the building is a little on the sketchy side (a trip down porn alley each time we headed back added to the excitement!). The room wasn't terribly... More

I will start with the only positive which is the location. It is near the harbour and Mtr which is really handy. Now.... Expect hawkers to hassle you every day going in and out of the place. There is only one lift and you will have to queue for it every time. Our room was nothing like the pictures. It... More

We stayed at Ashoka Hotel from Nov. 26-30, 2014. The room is small but it has its own bathroom with a heater. The beds are bunk beds. The room was clean, but when my friend inspected her bed, she noticed some stray hair underneath the pillow. Eeew! I inspected my bed and also found some strands of hair. Double eew!... More

I stayed at Ashoka Guest house for a couple of days. It was very clean, the in house staff was very cooperative. As I'm just visiting this place for business, I approached the reception guys about most favourable places to look around Hong Kong and they were really nice and friendly while suggesting me some good places. I would certainly... More

I stayed 1 night there before i left hongkong. You have to wait for the elevator for a long time. In this building are around 15 guesthouses. At night are a lot of drugdealers around the area. The rooms are very tiny and the restrooms are a mess! I would everyone recommend not going there!!! Worst place i ever stayed!
