The four nights that we stayed at the place were not particularly recreative. Hong Kong is an expensive place to stay, so for the beginning of our Southeast Asia trip we decided to save some money.
You basically get what you pay for: A very basic and small room with very small and hard beds. No space to leave your suitcase open, you always have to close it and shove it under the bed. The bathroom is a shower cabin with a toilet seat and a sink in it. The room was very clean and tidy. Unfortunately some cooking smell regularly flooded our room in the evening.
Staff was helpful - we reported a broken soap dispenser in the morning and it was fixed when we returned in the afternoon.
The best thing about the place is the location. Chungking Mansion is perfectly located in the heart of Kowloon, Metro is just across the street. Star Ferry is just a few minutes away by foot. Also, within Chungking Mansion, the Australian Guesthouse has the advantage of being located on the top floor, so the elevator is always vacant. On other floors one can have the problem that the elevator (there is only one) is full already.
Next time I go to Hong Kong I will probably go for a more expensive room where I can at least relax properly.
