Cosmic Guest House Hong Kong
Ranked #86 of 264 Hong Kong B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 January 2014

dont be deceived by the rooms u see in the internet they are just too small, i never imagined that it was so small that u can hardly pass thru between the 2 beds.u could hardly move taking a bath unless u want to touch the sink and the toilet bowl.our room had leaking faucet and a clogged sink. they provide towel if u ask for it but no change of towels and beddings for the rest of ur stay. They also did not clean the rooms.The advantages: great location,walking distance to the MTR station, ferry terminal, victoria harbour etc., safe, with receptionist almost 24hrs (unlike other guesthouses in mirador), with wifi connection and affordable. I dont recommend this place if u go to hk even on a budget. U deserve a comfortable place after a really tiring day exploring the great sights of hk so book a hotel instead.

The positive point is that the guest house is affordable (for HK) and nicely situated.

The room is the smallest room I ever stayed in. It is a mystery how they managed to fit two beds in the room plus a bathroom. The entrance of the building is a little bit scary, and managing the elevators can be a little bit tricky. The room looked clean at first glance, but we doubt they ever came to clean it during our stay (5days). It seems that the bathroom was cleaned once, but with the towels we left in the room. The staff is not friendly at all, they don't care of anything.

But I still doubt we could have find anything cheaper and as ideally located in HK.

no kidding the room is not clean. i am that kind of person who can camp in jungle or sleep on the street but the room just gave me goosebump of its disgusting bedsheets and pillow cases. there are stains on the bedsheet and it was not changed for even once during my 6 nights stay. we noticed someone did come in our room to do cleaning as the blanket was fold nicely everyday we back from trip and dustbin is cleared, but they did not change the bedsheet. we doubt if they changed it after the previous occupant checked out. toilet is not clean too, the toilet bowl has turned black from white and there are brown water marks on the floor. location is good though as train station is right downstairs and there are plenty of places to shop and eat around. if u really wish to save money and stay in this budget guest house, i would suggest you bringing along your sleeping bag or bedlinen.

Cosmic guest house would be a very ideal place to stay in Hongkong because it is located at the heart of the busy city, walking distance to malls, shopping areas both bazaar and branded retail, best restaurants and train station.
The rooms are small but if you are out most of the time, who needs a bath tub anyway? It was clean and the airconditioning was just perfect. The staff were nice and accommodating, they speak English too. They offer 30-40$ off the Disneyland and ocean park tickets so it was totally worth it. I slept well in all of the 4 nights of our stay.

i stayed for an overnight trip last August and this place is very perfect. very near to the MTR , shopping centers. shall i say, it is in the heart of TST.

very affordable, i arrived late and their receptionist is very efficient. the goods- bottled water and sodas are very affordable too.

they assisted me to store my stuff in their luggage area. one thing, i love is that they have strong wifi connection. they have blow dryers on the common area.

For me what it's important to say about this place is that the publicity photo on their website is the premium room and not the average one. When I asked them to be more honest about it they said that It would make the website to heavy (?) However for us was an interesting experience to stay in a classic "minimal" Hong Kong space. It's cheap and the building where is located is fascinating too, filled with cheap electronic, money exchange places, and curry stalls.

The staff during the day was awesome, very friendly, funny and informative - and excellent English. The one at night a little bit more hectic.

Overall an interesting super cheap HK experience. Here are some photos of the single room.

Staffs are good and able to speak english. Location is really good. Price is ok for hongkong standard. Security at night quite ok.

But room is so small and bathroom is too small! By the way, there is private bathroom. Building quite old. Cleanliness is not that clean but still ok.

Maybe stay at cosmic again if go for a backpack trip. I prefer here more than chungking mansion.

Better to reserve in advance.
