The location is horrible, full of touts and lowlifes hanging around. The place is very filthy. The rooms are very inhuman. The pictures of the rooms in the net are no way near reality. I wonder why local authorities allow such a place to operate with below par standards. The people who operate this place give HK a bad name!...

Booking ChungKing mansions was the worst decision I've ever made when traveling. I was fully prepared for budget accommodation, as I wanted to save money. However, the staff were rude, the rooms are tiny, even by HK standards, they were hot, air conditioning awful, the entire place smells of raw sewage (because the toilets are filthy and don't flush properly....

Arrived late at night and found a line up of people to get into our lift to the hotel. We had booked 2 double beds with private ensuite. We could not fault the cleanliness of bathroom. The mattresses were new and very comfortable. Bring your own towels and bathmats (No shower curtain). Some of the staff's English was not the...

Simply worst hostel I've ever stayed! 1. Rude and dishonest staff or should I say owner 2. Filthy bathrooms 3. Unsafe location If you will have a problem with the owner, just simply call a police, just like we did when the owner went to our room very late at night and asking for a cash payment on our second...

I would just like to say that staying in Chungking Mansion is ok if you are travelling on a budget. The location is pretty good. There are many touts who want to book you a night in one of their rooms, so it is up to you to check if it is worth it. We booked this room because the...

Ok, so after reading a few reviews on here I was worried to say the least, however on arrival to the Chungking Mansions I found that the touts, although annoying were easily ignored, just by simply walking past them without even looking at them, no matter how much they try to talk to you, ignorance is the best bet here....

Maybe I'm lucky, but I have to disagree with the majority of these reviews. I stayed in a 4-person dorm with shared bathroom. Although the room, and bathroom especially, were tiny, you can't expect anything else in such a busy city unless you're willing to pay. You need to be prepared for small rooms, which is accounted for in the...

Arrived at the front and immediately got bombarded by people trying to sell accommodation even though we already had it. Then had to walk through a cage to get to the hotel, got in a tiny lift which didnt even stop off at the floor, had to walk two flights of steps to get to the place. Arrived at the...

We stayed here because we had to book a room last minute. We only stayed one night and then moved to another hotel in the same building, which was both cheaper and had bigger rooms. I would not recommend this place for your stay in Hong Kong, you can find better places.
