Good location,easy to go to MTR, to take a bus ect. The building looked dodge...however its still safe till check out. The elevator is abit slow, sometime it takes about 15mins to go up. The owner is friendly and helpful. The room size is really small so you can put your luggage under the bed. Hot water, wifi, air con,... More

First of all this is not a hotel so do not expect too much. ChungKing Mansions is not hard to find its just along Nathan road and from the airport just take the bus A21 and its just 10 steps from the bus stop to Chunking Mansion. It is located beside Nathan Hotel and near or walking distant to Avenue... More

For the price I have paid, I can say that my stay was superb... Note the following, don't expect much when you pay 250 HKD per night in a place like HK. The location was in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, 4 mins from MTR.. And 10 mins from the Star Ferry...ignore the annoying touts down stairs and everything... More

we didn't want to pay much for our hotel room, so we decided to go to Cynthia's Inn. the staff was really friendly and the wlan was working most of the time, apart from that there are no more positive things to tell about. Either you have a room without daylight and the smell of deep-frying (all night long) or... More

I stayed at cynthia's because it was one of those weekends where hotel prices go crazy in hk. I even saw several 4 star (not 5) hotels asking USD$3000+ a night, no joke. Cynthia's has good and bad points, some of which are beyond it's control. Pros ------ - Provide free WiFi for internet on you tablet or mobile. Since... More

Last tuesday february 12th, was the next day of Chinese lunar new year holiday and every single room in Hong Kong was booked. Since everything was so expensive and we already had the tickets to go, decided, based on Expedia reviews, to go to an Inn located next to Tsim Sha Tsui metro station. The price was close to what...

We book this guesthouse online, pictures of the rooms look nice and clean, but when we got there the room was super small... also it was not fully clean... the previous guest smoked in the room, so the whole bed smelled like smoke... also some of the employees of the sleep in the outside in the hallway...

Hong Kong is an expensive city to stay in, at least when it comes to hotels, and for a family of five you usually need two rooms. This time we decided not to spend so much money on the hotel but tried just to find a decent place to sleep at. We almost found it... Pros: - We got two... More

I booked New London Hostel for HKD600 because I liked the location, and that's the cheapest available at that time (believe me) scoured). I also read that majority of the reviews gave it a high rating. The hostel was located in Block A of Chungking Mansion but we were instructed to proceed to 11/F of Block D, where the reception...

Location is right on the main street in South Kowloon, close to a MTR station and several buses, which is very convenient. To get to your room you however need to enter and pass through Chunking Mansions, which resembled some sort of not-too-pleasant run-down Indian bazaar. All the cheapest hostels in HK are located here. The rooms were clean-ish, okay... More
