Ashoka Guest house is a place that is by no means a luxury accommodation. You may not even get to stay there. I booked into Ashoka but on arrival was taken to a different guest house on another floor. It appears that a number of guest houses are owned by the same people scattered throughout Chungking Mansions, I believe you are given whatever is free at the time.
The rooms are best described as functional. You would only stay in them to sleep as at least my room was practically the size of the bed, with a few square feet of floor space for your shoes and bag.
Toilet and shower are combined into one cubicle, remember to leave your toilet paper outside when showering...its a very small space everything gets wet.
The bed is comfortable enough even if its not quite full size, and the ladies at Ashoka and Delta guest house (where I ended up) are very lovely and hospitable.
As a place to dump your luggage and crash after a day exploring Hong Kong, this is a decent option. If for no other reason, stay just for the Chungking Mansions experience. Its quite something.
