“Exactly what we expected”
Reviewed 17 December 2012 via mobile

After reading the huge amount of bad reviews on here for this place we'd thought we'd made a terrible mistake. But once we arrived our concerns were relieved.
This place is not nearly as bad as some people have said. If you've stayed on a backpackers before you'll be fine.
We stayed there 4 nights in December.


-the lifts can take a while.. Just smile.. You're in Hong Kong :)
-the staircases are pretty gross. I tried to avoid using them.
-The owners were polite and friendly enough.
-Make sure you ask for a room with a window. It's tiny, and barely a window, but its nicer to have some natural light.
-Rooms are very small, but that is to be expected in Hong Kong. Besides we were only ever in the room to sleep at night.
-The wi-if was surprisingly very good. (Better than the 5star hotel we stayed in on our last night)

The mansions are for people travelling on a budget who just need a clean safe place to stay. And that's what we got at the Korean hostel. Thanks.

Reviewed 2 September 2012

Owned and managed by the owner and manager of Canadian hostel. Location is right on the main street in South Kowloon, close to a MTR station and several buses, which is very convenient. To get to your room you however need to enter and pass through Chunking Mansions, which resembled some sort of not-too-pleasant run-down Indian bazaar. All the cheapest hostels in HK are located here. The room was quite clean and had a decent standard, but all though we booked a twin room, we got a double bed which litteraly was two persons wide. There was little or no room to move, so we ended up changing hostels after the first night. Accomodation is expensive in HK, and the rooms are inevitably tiny, but this was borderlining ridiculous.
