“Gross, Dingy”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

I hated Chung King Mansion and all the pushy people in it. Location was perfect, but other than that...yuck. The elevators are always packed. When I had to leave for an early flight the elevators weren't even working and I carried my luggage down 7 floors in the fire escape stairwell to find that each floors door was blocked and I became trapped. I had to carry my belongings up to the 9th floor and across the whole complex to finally exit. Never again. I left itchy and pissed off.

It is an unique feeling seeing all those different cultures to bound together in the same place. The place is full with youth and other kind of bag packers. The room was clean, I was lucky enough to have a window with a view on the Main Street which made me enjoy Hong Kong life day and night. The beds are very comfortable and the staff attend all our needs.

I had read up on Hong Kong on a budget before I left the states, well here it is. I am happy to have had the experience, however you may want to take into consideration your individual circumstance before you make your choice. This is a Third world type of accommodation, Yes it is a clean room and adequate bed, you will save money, you will be forever blessed with the memory of entering the Chung King Mansion. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by multitudes of touts selling everything from cheap rooms to suits and watches. People will even steer you to curry restaurants on commission. Once you spend a night in "THE MANSION" you have earned your "TRAVELERS WINGS"

Room Tip: Make sure your specify a room with a window!

The hotel has a good location, but very small rooms. From the airport to the hotel by bus A21, it stops at 14 Nathan Road - get off here and walk about 50 meters back. At the hotel on the ground floor is a lot of traders, not a good feeling, but do not bother and it's all safe.

I agree with ces168, the positives are the location and its price. Unbeatable in a place like hong kong. But i must also admit that It was a little daunting as we tried to find our way to checkin, with the line up for the lifts and the eclectic mix of different cultures on the ground floor starring at you as you dragged all your belongs through their shops to another lift. Despite the room being no bigger than a king size bed it was clean, airconned, had a TV (no english channels) and most importantly for travelers free fast wifi! yes the shower is a hose over the toilet but it is a hot shower.

In short, i wouldn't recommend this place to female only travelers, but is perfect for couples looking to rest their head for the night in a clean and reasonably priced shoebox!

There are positive things about this hostel, great location and cheap. It is located at the heart of Nathan Road where all the shopping malls, restaurants, fastfood chains and tourist attractions are located. It is also very accessible to subway and train. Downside about this hostel is the rooms. We stayed in a twin accomodation and my goodness, there is a very little space to move. There is no bathroom door but only a shower curtain. No chair, there is just no space. But they do have hot water. But if you are not really particular about the place you want to stay in, I highly recommend this place. If I go back in HK, will I stay in this hostel? hmmm, if i have money, i will not. but considering the prices of hotels in Nathan Road, I will probably consider this hostel again.
