For heaven sake dont book to stay with HOSTELHK. I prepaid my stay becase they offered a large discount. When i got there the room was so tiny that i could stand and strech my arms and both arms would be touching each walls. On top of that the bathroom is the size of peanut. They squash the toilet, sink... More

The hostel smells like a pig pen. We transfered to a nearby hotel the following day eventhough we're booked for 3 days. Too many hidden charges and deposits. The owner / manager is rude.

My wife and I just spent a week in Hong Kong. We started out at the Li's Hostel at Block A, 3rd Floor, Chungking Mansions. This place is disgusting - gross. This is by far the worst place I've stayed in my life and I'm embarrassed to have put my wife through hell we went through there. We ended up... More

I booked there because I saw that the prices were reasonable and that the photos were damn nice. So I booked for a few nights there. When I first reached the recpetionist, they showed me the room that they had prepared for me, but still other traveller's luggage were still there, I almost vomit ! Then, they asked me if... More

This hotel is the worst place I have ever stayed in my entire life. It doesn't even deserve the definition 'hotel'. The word that would best describe it is 'dump'. It is located in a building which is full of cheap shops which are mainly owned by Indians and Arabians and you are constantly approached by creepy people trying to... More
