A guesthouse whit normal prices. On the 17 th floor in a crowdy building. Clean room, verry small with small private bathroom. Room was made up everyday. Airco, tv, fridge. The area from the guesthouse is separate and closed with a keycard so nobody els has acces to it. The enterance downstairs is crowdy and scares you off a little at first side, but all the men hanging around there owns a shop or paki/indian/philipinne restaurant. But actually its quite safe there.
Great host, he was very accommodating to us, had decent beds, had a shower over the toilet and a basin, but all private within your own room. For the price in comparison to other options in Hong Kong, you can't fault it. Also, it is in a Viator 'must visit building' so we managed to tick one site off our list before we had even left the bedroom! Absolutely perfect location too, right by the ferry port to take you across to the other side of Hong Kong for very little money, and in the heart of the night markets and bustling Hong Kong - would recommend!
We checked in and were not happy with the place, but we had paid non-refundable. After two nights we could not take it any more and decided to go outside the city for a couple nights. We told them we would be back for the last, 5th night. When we returned they had checked us out for the day before and someone was in our room. They said they thought we were not coming back. They would not refund us for the two nights. After much pressure form booking.com they refunded a part of one night weeks later. We also noticed their strategy is to put people in their worst room and move them to a better one if they complain. The guy on the desk is very helpful but overall manager is not helpful and is obnoxious.
A small room that will serve its purpose by putting a roof over your head for a couple of nights. Shower room cramped, but least it has hot water. Mattress was hard, but this suits me. Pillows, clean sheets. Easy check in process with visa.
Room is quite small but you have your own toilet with hot and cold water. They also have a pantry area where you could use their microwave and fridge. They also provide free water at the pantry. At the block where we checked in, they have a two small lifts (I think all of the blocks have at least two lifts). Receptionist is so kind, also the one who assisted us to our room (I think they are both Indians). At the ground floor of Chungking Mansion, there numbers of Foreign Exchange, just check who among them offers good price. During our stay it was the forex located in the middle who offered good forex (I forgot the name of the establishment but the label was blue). There are also several Indian restaurants who offered good food. 10Hkd for a rice and 30-35Hkd for viand. The hostel offers a discounted HK Disneyland and Ocean Park tickets but you could also find some Indians offering a discounted tickets at the ground floor. (I got Mine for 530Hkd (Original price was 589Hkd) You could also find luggage's and bags at the Ground floor stalls. One thing I just noticed, we cannot watch Television during the morning (no reception/ signal) but I just don't know if this is usual since we are just first timers in HK. In the Philippines, people usually wake up at 6AM or earlier, but in HK 9 or 10 AM is quite early.…
