      Hostel Is Okay, Chungking Mansions Building Is Terrible

      Reviewed Aug 29, 2011

      The City Guesthouse is an okay hostel. Rooms are small (around 5m2) yet we knew this beforehand. The price for a deluxe room is quite decent for the location and considering that Hong Kong is an expensive city to stay. Room had airco, and was generally clean but didn't have any windows.

      The hostel is located within Chungking Mansion, which is an inhospitable run-down building in which you do not want to stay. Before you get to the elevator for the hostel you need do walk past a kind of bazaar with lots of run-down shops and people. Elevators are slow (long waiting time) and mostly very crowded. Next to this, the building didn't have any good escape routes, and with all the unfinished electrical wiring it seems that such a route might very well come in handy. Last day we walked past the "mansions" and witnessed a firetruck stopping in front of the building and a team of fireman entering the building; adding to our worries.

      Would not visit again or recommend.

      ... don’t usually offer the most current exchange rates it seems.

      When we arrived at the hotel it was incredibly busy and then we realized that we were trying to check in just as everyone else was trying to check out since it was around 9:30am when we got there. Knowing that we were far too early for a room to actually be ready, we waited in line anyway and a very nice Russian guy about our age got us all squared away and told us that a room would be ready ...

      ... years maybe!

      We can see the ferries shuttle back and forth, from the central piers on Hong Kong island to destinations as close as Kowloon and as far away as Macau and Guangzhou, and everywhere in between.

      My cold is well and truly set in now, meaning that the bed is more appealing at this point in time than the streets of Hong Kong. We do venture out however and only need to walk a block or two to be reminded that we are ...

      ... for WIFI here- there is none that can be successfully connected to, despite it appearing on the list. The stunning vista from the top was better than expected and the night view of Hong Kong was incredible. The camera has a habit of censoring my face and focusing on the background though- the view is THAT good. Although, to think of the converse...sigh.

      After a lie-in this morning we got the Star ferry over to Kowloon for a huge dim sum lunch with Rocky and Derah. Seeing Hong Kong island from afar gives a better idea of just how impressive the skyline is on both sides - we have never seen so many sky scrappers packed so closely together. We also noted the Chinese definitely love their designer labels as there are designer shops everywhere and people queue outside the stores. At the restaurant,in the ladies ...

      ... back of the hotel and skyped my mum. For some reason the video wasn't working, so I could talk but couldn't see her. She could see me though. I went to bed and in the morning packed my bags and went to the back of the hotel to get the taxi, once I had checked out. The ship: We arrived at the port and when we got in and unloaded the 'taxi' and walked onto the ship, we were met by Jenny, the human resources manager. She was lovely and went through ...
