I booked and paid this hostel through Agoda many months before our stay. On our arrival we were told that our booking had been cancelled because we arrived later than 6.00pm. Then we were told that the room was available but we would have to pay an extra HK$1000 to stay for the 6 nights that we had booked for. Could find no other accommodation so had to pay the extra. The only thing going for this dump was that it is fairly close to the ferries and other transport. The Chungking Mansions are truly a shanty town, we did not feel safe for the time we were there. Our only consolation was that we only used the place to sleep and change. I would not recommend this dump to my worst enemy. The crooks who run it should be locked up.
