One day transit in Hong Kong

We are two travellers transiting through HK for one day and one night. Can you suggest a really cheap hotel? We would like to see as much of HK as possible in one day. Should we stay close to the airport or move to the city centre? What are the transportation options in Hong Kong between airport and city centre?

Hotels near the airport are pretty pricey. Do a search for hotels using your own price criteria (ie, "really cheap"). Transport options include Airport Express Train, Airport bus, taxi, or a combination of these.

You may stay at a more central location in Hong Kong and away from the airport for HK$180 (return) for just under half an hour (if you go all the way into Hong Kong Island). There are interchange stations where you can go from the Airport Express train line to the local ones too.

In terms of hotels, since you only have one night in Hong Kong, I would stay fairly central if I were you. Avoid places such as Tsim Sha Tsui, Central and Causeway Bay though. They are very expensive.

Hotels in Hong Kong are expensive.

The only "really cheap" options are the guest houses, Chungking Mansions has numerous options, but there are many more. They provide not much more than a bed, rooms often too small to even add a chair (take that literally).

You should define what "really cheap" means in terms of a figure, preferably in HKD.
