Let's start with some pros: location. It is super close to Langham place (some good shopping,food,restaurants and a great outdoor bar (the backyard)) and 'action' Mongkok (Ladies market, sneaker street etc). A big however - it is within the heart of Mongkoks red light district. By all means no one will interfere or made us feel unsafe, but any male who is alone may be approached on the street like myself. Just stay clear of neon pink doorways!
As for the hotel: it is small (8sqm), but is probably hong king standard. The room was very dark in the bathroom, had stained floors and badly scuffed walls. It just needed some really good housekeeping in the hard to reach places and a new facelift. We note that it is a 'guesthouse.' There are a total of 26 rooms, with no other facilities - breakfast, gyms etc. We had terrible to no wifi at all also and contacted reception multiple times to rectify the problem with but it was no use in the end. After reading some other reviews it seems that corner rooms had terrible wifi, we were in 302...a near corner room - so try to avoid if internet is important. And the beds! Very hard and only one pillow per person so it may be very uncomfortable for some. Final nail in the coffin was the staff. They were less than enthused. Upon our arrival we were greeted by four dull faced, less than helpful staff. If you don't like interaction with hotel staff then no worries, but with some hotel facility problems we faced, it just was so difficult to get anywhere.
Ultimately, the rooms are liveable but in no means very comfortable or hospitable. There are far better value for money hotels in Hong Kong. Ps I don't even think Pop Hotel have reviewed any of their reviews on trip advisor as these complaints appear to be across the board from other trip advisor users.
