This is a backpacker hostel, its inside Chungking Mansion.no lobby, narrow alley, very small room and not that clean it smells smoke of a cigarette.Its cheap,maybe why thats their service.No towel,no shampoo/soap,no tissue,no slipper. It is not advisable for a family. The elevator carries only 4-6 person its small.When you enter the hostel its quite scary, but its with cctv.... More

This is by far the most horrible place I've stayed, but it was the cheapest I could get in HK. This hostel is named HK downtown backpackers on hostelworld etc, and the pictures used are not what you will encounter when getting here. The pictures are nice, this place is not. It looks like a dump. The rooms are so... More

Awful, awful place, for these reasons: - Management pictures on here are totally unrepresentative of the rooms - believe me, they are of another hotel! - Tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny rooms - Described as a family room for 5, we got 2 single beds and a camp bed. The single beds were for 2 people each. - There was ZERO... More

This is far from a traditional hostel, located in a building on Nathan Road in downtown Kowloon it is the definition of the HONG KONG living situation. The rooms may say 1 or 2 beds but resemble more of what your closet would be in the western world just add a bathroom and maybe if your lucky a window facing... More

I was deperate to have somewhere to stay, so stayed here for one night whcih was 1 too many. Good location and that's about it. Avoid this place, there's better places around if they're not booked up.

I expected the sheets to be dirty and ripped (they were). I expected to have bugs and cockroaches crawling through my room (there were). I expected a bedroom that looked like a bathroom but had a view like something out of the movie like Brazil or Akira (it was). I expected the clerk's attitude to range from an extreme indifference...
