Anywhere else in the world I would have hated Ashoka - in Hong Kong it was a godsend. It's very much a budget hotel, but you'd be hard pressed to find better digs for the same price. You stay in ChungKing Mansion for the experience, and I was a little aprehensive given its reputation. However I never felt at risk here. The lift is very close to the entrance so you don't have to go too deep (although expect to wait up to 15 minutes for the lift since there's always a line), and there's always something at the reception of Ashoka.
Room is small - fits 3 people and the wiring is...iffy. My light switch had to be tapped a few times to go on, but never saw any insects and the bed was clean. Also had a small locker for my valuables, and a pretty spectacular view from my window. The shower was also surprisingly powerful - I'd expected much worse.
I was only in Hong Kong for 2 nights, and not sure I'd recommend staying here for a long trip, but if you want to stay at ChungKing or just need a few nights while watching your budget, Ashoka Guest House is a pretty good option.
