“Cheap but seedy”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

A young Indian guy on the entrance to Chungking mansions asked us if we needed a room and offered it extremely cheap for 250HKD a double-bed. Since we didnt have any reservation and were on a low-budget we followed him to E block Angel guesthouse on 5th floor.

First impression of the room was not so bad, it wasnt good but quite ordinary for chungking mansion standards so we decided to stay. Later on we noticed that the bed-sheets and the towels werent very clean, and the blankets werent sheeted at all. The bathroom door was broken and the bed was creaking a lot. Also, the corridor was quite dirty and smelly at the entrance, and we saw some shady people.

Overall, we didnt feel very well and safe there. I can only recommend it to travellers who are on a really low budget. The place does has wireless internet and TV, but all the guest houses in chungking mansions seem to have it nowadays. Maybe their rooms in C block are better.

We booked this online for a cheap stay between flights and it was badly overpriced. It was a tiny room in a the Chunking mansion complex with the reception in one block and the rooms in another. The lifts are tiny and you have to wait 10-15 mins each time just to go up or down!! Never stay here or any of the places in this complex!
