    Hostel Is Okay, Chungking Mansions Building Is Terrible

    Reviewed Aug 29, 2011
    by (24 reviews) Utrecht , Netherlands Flag of Netherlands

    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.

    ... to go. But we made our way around and instead of getting frustrated we just decided we got more exercise than if we had known where we were going initially!  We got many more steps on the Fitbit! 9.  We both really liked our visit to this great city and hope to return one day to visit it again. We will get into Bangkok in a few hours but won't get to the hotel until about 11pm.  See  you soon! ...

    ... We were allocated the row 52 right inside the entry door and it was up against a bulkhead - problem 1 for me as I could not stretch my legs. Problem 2 was that Row 52 is adjacent to the galley and the busy folks were busy all night. Good news in terms of passenger service but bad news for anyone nearby trying to have a sleep. Problem 3 turned out to be not a problem. We had no sooner sat down than a young Chinese mother arrived to take the remaining seat in our ...

    After that we go with Paris and Adrian, first to see their apartment they are leaving and then to go into the city. Their apartment is small but quite nice. It is basically empty now as everything has been shipped back to Australia. There is just a bed, a high one with storage underneath. I ask how Adrian gets into it, ...

    ... taken the MTR the previous day so this time he led the way. This has been a weekend of queues - more long queues to get the tickets from a machine...the first machine went 'out of service' just as we got to the head of the queue, and we didn't read the sign on the second machine that said 'Notes only' so had to get some change and line up again. My first MTR trip...no different from the MRT back home. It was a short walk from Tsim Sha Tsui MTR to the Star Ferry ...

A minority of items were addressed personally to the Kims although they were usually shambolic, a peace medal from Joseph Stalin for example. There were also a number of honorary degrees although most of them were from small despotic regimes presumably trying to win favour with a ...
