We stayed and Venetian Hostel 16-03-2012 - 28-03-2012. When we arrived our rooms somehow weren't ready or the hostel was full so they gave us another rooms in Chungking Mansion (not in Mirador where Venetian hostel is located). The rooms (on 17th floor) as I understood, were deluxe or something like that, so they were really good - newly renovated, covered by tiles, bathroom was small but still ok for one person, mattresses covered with plastic in order to avoid bedbugs and mine had 2 windows (although I booked a single room without windows). Despite the fact that Chungking mansion staircases and building itself are a disaster, these rooms were like a little oasis in that madness of smells, dirt, people from all over the world offering you cheap fake bags and. Unfortunately, we had to switch rooms for the last night and then I've got the room I booked in Mirador mansion... small, no windows, mattresses weren't very clean as well, towels had holes in it, bathroom was soooo small that there was only toilet and sink and you can shower when you sit on the toilet:) Bathroom's doors were damaged so all the water appeared on the floor of the room after showering and it was wet all the time. And other thing - hot water is only on certain hours, so manage your time to have hot water :) well all this would be ok, taking in to consideration the price, location and the fact that almost all hostels located in Mirador and Chungking mansions look the same or even worse but I have many negative notes to reception staff - they weren't friendly, they seemed to not care at all, there were no wi-fi in rooms in Mirador Mansion and I had to ask for clean towels twice. There wasn't 24hrs service either! I would advice reception desk to be more professional in the future because even in these conditions it is possible to offer better service and better quality for this price. For travellers I recommend not to book this hostel in advance but try other places like Welcome hostel, located in same Chungking mansion building, because the quality of rooms are slightly better or the same, they have windows, wi-fi and you can pay for each night separately which allows you to check other rooms and other prices if you have some spare time.
