    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.

    ... We walked to the night bus stop, complained to the Big Bus rep about being left behind, and picked up some cold drinks at the nearby 7-11 (like Bangkok Hong Kong has lots of 7-11s). We got on the night bus and waited awhile for it to leave (it filled up quickly). Off we went on the night tour, which we knew was also in Kowloon, but we didn't realize it was pretty much exactly the same route as the Kowloon day tour, with the same commentary! I could have recited some of it ...

    Today we visited the Central Mid Level Escalators and Walking System. It was built in 1993 and is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world. The entire systems covers 800 metres or 2600 feet in distance. We took the escalators up and then walked back down. From 6 am till 10 am it runs downhill and then from 10:30 ...

    We arrived at the Lok Fu station in northern Kowloon and Google Maps guided us to the Walled City of Kowloon Park. The park is situated in the heart of a heavily urbanized area and is a lovely green oasis surrounded by the chaos of the city. As we walked to the park, we passed an interesting sight - a cemetery. But this cemetery was built up the side of a large hill. Given the crunch for space in this ...

    Why is it when you want your baggage quickly that it's the last bag to go onto the conveyor belt from the plane! Hong Kong airport could have done me a favour by getting it off first then I wouldn't have missed the last bus at midnight. At 5 past midnight I arrived at the bus stop with a stitch in my side from running and realised I would now have to pay a fortune for a taxi to Kowloon! Still, thats life I suppose and I gritted my teeth as I handed over ...

    ... of a walk way, tunnel etc. Its plenty of them for at least a mile. they play cards, eat, sleep, chat.... everything what they only wish to do. From the very morning, (since you will get a better place) till afternoon when the party time starts. Then, they are going to European pubs, where they can meet white man and having loads of fun with them. But they must be back by certain time home, so its not too much of a fun. Since white man loves Asian looking girls ...
