“Tidy Compact Place to Sleep in Kowloon”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

Kyoto has what other budget guesthouses in Hong Kong should strive for
-Friendly staff
-Clean sheets and towels
-Good wireless internet access in room
-Well functioning AC
-Steps from MTR
-Lively street scene in the area; good international restaurants, grocery, shopping, bars, etc

Negatives:
- It is in the Chungking Mansions which did not seem as seedy as it's reputation. Touts on the streets in front were not overly agressive. Kyoto is on the 15th floor so it would be long run down the stairs in an emergency. We felt safe enough.
-Small 8 foot by 8 foot (roughly) room without space for a chair or other place to sit other than on the bed.
-No common area elsewhere to relax

Kyoto is a few dollars more than other hostels/guesthouses in the area. We thought it well worth paying a little more and would stay again.

Room Tip: We were two people in a room for three people which was a little larger and gave us a bit room to sp...

Reviewed 23 October 2011

Had a 12hr layover and wanted a place to nap and wait out the jetlag. This place is on the 15th floor of the A block of the Chungking Mansions, which is an apartment complex full of cheap hostels and guesthouses. The first couple floors of the mansion are pretty grungy, but once you get to the 15th floor all is well.

The guesthouse itself is actually 8 tiny apartments, one of which houses the reception office. The place is staffed by a couple really nice ladies who wrote me a very clear and thorough email prior to my arrival. The wifi is good and free, and the rooms have A/C, ensuite bathrooms, and TV. There are individual water heaters in the bathroom, so hot water is guaranteed. The rooms are very small, the size of cheap private rooms on a cruise ship or ferry. But they're very clean, and I had a great rest.

If there's a possibility you're going to arrive past 9pm you MUST (per policy) write them directly to let them know both when you expect to arrive at the guesthouse, and if you're flying I suggest you give them your flight number. From the airport, I took bus A21 for HK$33 to Stop 14, takes about 45min when traffic is light. This will get you extremely close to the complex, which currently has a bunch of scaffolding on the front fascade.
