    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.

    ... There were two battalions each of British (Royal Scots and 1st Battalion Middlesex Regiment), Canadians (Royal Rifles of Canada and 1st Battalion Winnipeg Grenadiers) and Indians (5th Battalion 7th Rajput Regiment and 2nd Battalion 14th Punjab Regiment) plus the Hong Kong Volunteer Defence Corps. None of them were sufficiently well trained to oppose the landings and surrender came in a matter of a couple of weeks on Christmas Day 1942.

    A big day in Hong Kong

    ... it is out on to the island in search of the bus to Stanley, on the other side of Hong Kong island.

    As we wander toward it, there a a lot of Filipino women sitting around the streets. Adrian explains they are all employed as workers in homes and they are not allowed to spend Sunday at the house they work and board at. So here they are, literally hundreds all spending the day just sitting on the pathways. A special area has even been set aside for them. ...

    ... beautiful. Even on a kind of hazy day like that one we had it was still great to look down on these amazing skyscrapers and it was a really unique view that you aren’t able to get very often. Unfortunately since the clock was working against us we only had a few minutes to enjoy the view and snap a few pictures before we needed to head back to the hotel and then off to the airport.

    After just a few short days in Hong Kong we were sad to be saying ...

    Dragon Boat Festival was the 2nd June, which was also disappointingly our day off. It sucks when public holidays fall on our day off because suddenly everything is super busy. This was added to by the fact that it was the most beautiful blue skied and sunny day, making beach going impossible. Alex and I live on one side of a hill, and just over the other side is a lovely bay. However, the landfill in the way makes walking straight ...
