The dorm was really dirty, and it stank. But the worst are the bedbuggs. I (and I'm not the only one) have been bitten hundreds time on my entire body by bedbuggs. It was really really ithchy and painful. I had to go to the doctor because I started bleeding because of scratching. I also had to pay for laundry...

Please don't get engage with this hotel. I hate their marketing strategy, they will post a different photo (seems awesome) but during the actual room, it is very very different. Too small and unclean. I won't recommend this to anyone!!

We have carefully studied the description of the hotel in its homepage in Chinese and in English. And then we have prepaid our room for 2 nights. But our experience was more than disappointed. It was terrible. Our plane was late and we arrived at 2:30 am at the hotel. A man at the reception told us that there was...

I and my friends registered a hotel which is located in Chunking mansion. Whe we arrived here, a old man approached to us.

This is by far the most horrible place I've stayed, but it was the cheapest I could get in HK. This hostel is named HK downtown backpackers on hostelworld etc, and the pictures used are not what you will encounter when getting here. The pictures are nice, this place is not. It looks like a dump. The rooms are so...

Awful, awful place, for these reasons: - Management pictures on here are totally unrepresentative of the rooms - believe me, they are of another hotel! - Tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny rooms - Described as a family room for 5, we got 2 single beds and a camp bed. The single beds were for 2 people each. - There was ZERO...

This is far from a traditional hostel, located in a building on Nathan Road in downtown Kowloon it is the definition of the HONG KONG living situation.
