I suppose you get what you pay for but this was definitely the smallest room I've ever stayed in. Just about enough room to stand up! That being said, it was very clean and the landlady was very nice. Handy as a place to leave the bag down but not to spend any time in

When I first got to the Chung King Mansions I regretted my decision to be a tight and after about 20minutes waiting for a lift (there is only one lift and there is always large delays) I got to my room and I couldn't believe how small it is.. So glad I was a solo traveller, if i was with... More

I'm not going to lie, when we first stepped into Chung King Mansion we regretted our decision to stay here and very nearly went somewhere else. But, we stuck it out and headed up to the 15th to Kyoto Guest House, and ended up being very glad we did. Our room, although small, was very clean and comfortable. The ladies... More

Ok, arriving at Chung King at 4am was daunting for my girlfriend, but after the initial reservations, you soon realise what a gem this is and especially Kyoto. The room was ofcourse small (come on, its HK) but it was perfect for what we needed and exceptionally clean. The guys running the place were a bit frosty at start, but... More

Any hostel in Nathan Rd puts you in the centre of things. Chung King Mansion might put you off abit at the entrance but once you get used to it its fine. Was a bit confused on how to go up to the 15th floor but just queue at the lifts for odd floor numbers and the lift should be... More

I stayed at this hostel for 6 days with my girlfriend for our vacation/ adventure . The reason why I chose this is because of the good reviews from tripadvisor. I booked at a hostel in Mirador mansion at first but when I saw the review there I canceled and booked at this hostel. The owner of this hostel and... More

Chung King mansion is an experience in itself and doesn't have the best reputation, but if you need a budget option in HK and the Y is full, this is probably your next best bet. Riding the elevator is a little annoying, but rooms at Kyoto are reasonably priced, albeit extremely small, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.... More

I was skeptical at staying at the Chung King Mansion and it is a little sketchy but they have food that is pretty good inside. The Hostel itself is not much but it is safe and clean. It was definitely small but I think that is what you get in Hong Kong. There are two parts of the Kyoto house... More

In the center of Kowloon, with 1 minute walk to the subway station Tsim Sha Tsui and 3 minutes walk to the ferry piers to Hong Kong. Lively location which does not give a very good first impression when approaching the building, but the guest house on 15th floor is very clean and silent. The two ladies operating it are... More

The place, as stated in other reviews, is super clean. The staff is great, super helpful. We paid 50 usd for a small room, with private toilet in Kowloon. It was a weekend, I guess you can get it for less too. Its located in the famous Chungking Mansions. Let me tell you something about this Chungking Mansions...THEY ARE NOT... More
