First as you approach the building there are no numbers on buildings around, so it was a little hard to find. Outside your approached by arab men trying to get you to rent a room or sell you a ride to the airport. I saw the men swarm on a young asian couple harassing them as they walked a good way in to the alley. The alley is full of money changers. I have no idea how they all stay in business all the money changers next to each other. The elevators are on the left side of the alley. The only way for you to find it is to read the board next to the elevators, the board is full of all the guest houses, lounges, and hostels in that part of the building. The elevators are odd floors and even floors. At night there are lines to go up one for odd and the other for even floors. You might have to wait awhile since the elevator would hold only 5 or 6 at a time. You can't go up with the elevator from one floor to the next unless your lucky to have the elevator stop on your floor going up or yo walk up the stairs, otherwise take it down (there is only a down button for the elevator on the floors. I can tell you I've stayed at two places in the 40 Nathan Road address (Chung King Mansion) and would suggest that you skip anything at this address unless again if your a backpacker or on a shoestring budget. The room are small. Two platform beds, AC, television ( if it works or has a remote), and a bathroom. The bathroom is about the size of a closet. The shower is directly over the toilet. The hot water is spotty (my wife said it worked one night and didn't the rest of our stay) I guess it's alright having the shower over the toilet if you can't stand for your shower. I found probably better accommodations at the Holiday Inn or Best Western for just a couple of dollars more , which we would have taken advantage of if the prepaid fees were refundable. Again stay away from any place at the Chung King Mansion unless your a backpacker or on a shoestring budget.

Poor customer service, no refund policy, no consideration. So think properly before booking. It’s my fault for not reading the reviews before giving them my money. It is cheap but it doesn’t have to be poor

Chung King Mansion is a building with lots of hostel type accomodation under different names & owners. Typical Hong Kong budget stay the room is tiny and clean. The off side is the stairs going up the smell is awful.

People - even if you’re on a tight budget, run away from this place. It is beyond terrible. If I could give it zero stars, I would. 1. No towels 2. Everything you see on the internet on this place is complete bogus. It’s all photo shopped. It looked wayyyy worse than that. Think you booked a certain room? Nah, they’ll put you into something shittier and keep your money. 3. Management and front desk check in are terrible. They try to swindle you and do intimidation tactics. Run by an East Indian family who clearly don’t know the definition of personal space. Especially the oldest one. 4. The entire place smells like URINE. It’s disgusting! 5. The elevator only fits 5 or 6 max. It’s the slowest elevator on this planet. You will be waiting 15-20 mins to get down or go back up to your “room” depending on how many people are waiting on ground level or coming from other floors. Nightmare. 6. Go somewhere else. Anywhere else. Hong Kong should be a place to splurge. My bad. Never again. I’d rather spend 20-30$ more on something worth it. The ONLY good thing. And I really mean ONLY GOOD THING, is it’s location. It’s right in the middle of the hustle and bustle on the Main Street and literally a block or two away from the harbour and avenue of stars. Stay away. Unless you’re really that broke and desperate. In which case, you should skip Hong Kong.

check your room before payment.....they wont allow...still insist. Cramped rooms...Fire trap alleys.....pictures in booking.com misleading. Checked in and out in 1 hour.....owner gladly refunded half the booking amount(originally booked for 4 nights). Still Glad, didn't stay there. Its not about being claustrophobic - its about choice of rooms you get in other areas better than this at slightly higher price.
