Star Ferry goes only to Tsim Sha Tsui. From Tsim Sha Tsui to Mong Kok, you have a few choices:

Walk: takes about 1 hour. Along Nathan Road.

Bus: Taks #1, #2 or #6. They all go along Nathan Road and pass through Mong Kok

MTR: walk to Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station (5 to 10 min) and take MTR to Mong Kok station.

Or taxi, of course.

So, the complete directions from the Peak are:

1) Take Bus No. 15 from the Peak Tower (terminus) all the way to the end, at the Central Ferry Piers (right next to the Star Ferry.)

2) Take the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui

3) As HappyFeet says, take Bus # 1, 2 or 6 to Mongkok.

I'm not much of a bus user from the Peak or from Star Ferry terminal in Mongkok so I'll propose a bit different approach to Mongkok.

The Peak to Star Ferry Terminal (Central)

1.) Fastest way - take a taxi from the top of the peak to the Star Ferry terminal in Central, or all the way back to Mongkok in Kowloon

2.) My favorite way, just take the Peak Tram back down to the terminus and then walk down to central district toward the Star Ferry Terminal, just follow the signs (15 minutes from Peak Terminus to Star Ferry terminal)

From Star Ferry Terminal (Tsim Sha Tsui) to Mongkok

1.) Fastest - see taxi example above from Peak to Mongkok

2.) My favorite - just use the TST MTR to Mongkok MTR. You can walk to the TST MTR station from the Star Ferry Pier in about 8-10 minutes, another 5-8 minutes transport time and you are in Mongkok.

I would opt for MTR as well. It's just the easiest way and you are less likely to get lost or get off at the wrong stop.
