First of all, this is in Chungking Mansion located in the center of Tsim Sha Tsui. Chungking Mansion is a very famous building to local people. There are many cheap motels placed at each floor and very crowded with sellers and visitors at the first floor. Some people may not like this circumstance very much. Meanwhile, If you are a... More

We actually stayed here Sept of 2011. And as far as I can remember, the experience was good from our email exchanges with them back then for the booking (wherein we paid in half and the rest in cash upon arrival) until our stay which was for 3 nights except for the elevator rides (long queues, cramped space) and people...

I suppose you get what you pay for but this was definitely the smallest room I've ever stayed in. Just about enough room to stand up! That being said, it was very clean and the landlady was very nice. Handy as a place to leave the bag down but not to spend any time in

I'm not going to lie, when we first stepped into Chung King Mansion we regretted our decision to stay here and very nearly went somewhere else. But, we stuck it out and headed up to the 15th to Kyoto Guest House, and ended up being very glad we did. Our room, although small, was very clean and comfortable. The ladies... More

Ok, arriving at Chung King at 4am was daunting for my girlfriend, but after the initial reservations, you soon realise what a gem this is and especially Kyoto. The room was ofcourse small (come on, its HK) but it was perfect for what we needed and exceptionally clean. The guys running the place were a bit frosty at start, but... More

Chung King mansion is an experience in itself and doesn't have the best reputation, but if you need a budget option in HK and the Y is full, this is probably your next best bet. Riding the elevator is a little annoying, but rooms at Kyoto are reasonably priced, albeit extremely small, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.... More

I was skeptical at staying at the Chung King Mansion and it is a little sketchy but they have food that is pretty good inside. The Hostel itself is not much but it is safe and clean. It was definitely small but I think that is what you get in Hong Kong. There are two parts of the Kyoto house... More

“If traveling 2 person, get the twin bedding as the queen size room is really small. Rooms at the back are quieter but no view, instead rooms facing the main street can get a bit noisy once its morning.”

“Even when travelling alone, if you can afford book a full room (also if there are two beds in). You will be happy to have the space available.”
