Stayed here in March with my girlfriend. Booked it after reading bad things online about Chungking Mansions and Hong Kong seems a little short on backpacker options compared to most major cities.
Anyway this place was perfect for us. It's an apartment style hostel and kind of open plan but rarely felt crowded. There is also one private room which looked small but nice. Met some really nice people here including Kit, the owner.
The area is much more local and authentic than the main tourist areas of the city and it's only 100metres to the metro. It's a punishing climb to the 9th floor but the views make it worthwhile and the roof terrace is a great place to hang out in the evenings.
If I come back to Hong Kong I will definitely stay here again.
