Chung King Mansion, Hong Kong

(380+ reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop
Popularly known by backpackers as the cheapest accommodation in Hong Kong, Chung King Mansion also houses a mixture of restaurants, clothing shops, and foreign exchange counters. Shop in any of the three malls in the mansion for bargain prices, but the main arcade on the ground floor is the easiest to reach and browse. If you decide to sleep here, expect tiny rooms and hard beds with bathrooms shared by the whole floor. Rooms may or may not have air conditioning. Do not be surprised if police randomly check your identity for the cause of reducing drug-trafficking. Use our Hong Kong vacation planner to add Chung King Mansion and other attractions to your Hong Kong vacation plans.

  • Went to the Exchange during the day. Otherwise lodging is upstairs, I saw some people seems to be guiding tourists and touts. On the first floor there are many money changers. We compare rates around the no-fee exchange. Good rate from the airport. Deli shop of India as well as the smell of curry and the ambiance.

  • My wife booked us in "Prestige hotel" but we knew from the address that it will be in Chung King Mansion and thus we expected similar accommodations as feedbacks from other tripadvisor members. We arr...  more »
  • This is the place to be much better compared to the past and only go for the Exchange. Currency exchange in India who entered little money changers are now facing Chinese women in poorly rate as either overcharging so there are money changers. Maybe I crammed with people to stay in the House, but they become better people of India, located on the top floor and backpackers who need courage to go in. I'm going come back again for the Exchange. You never wanted to go India cuisine restaurant that is. Instead many of Japanese coming to the Exchange.  Before each rate table, so watching it pass Japan yen and at great speed Exchange completed. Rarely can line up to a third more if you need.  The Exchange is that chaos and escape from the atmosphere. Sasa is located next to the mules here is you have put goods carrying 担gi屋 and unpolished, the mainland Chinese people in Sasa bought a huge suitcase in front of the store is crowded in the sight of the commonplace cashier. What is a pretty good sight. I think it is because that is where the reality as depicted in the film in Exchange for help without doing totally different pleasure is better.

  • Good place to exchange money, usually have good rates but sometimes they run out of money... Tried one of the Indian food stalls, it is quite good but a little pricey. The naan is fresh and super delicious, the curry is good too but they reheat it in the microwave.
  • Very good choice for low cost stay, Free wifi, Cleaning and service are good for the price. Next to bus station, airportbus, MTR
  • If you booked your hostel here, be careful. Chungking mansions is a well known place in HK and its fame is not for its tiny hostels or its cleanliness. If you wander around the first floor you will have an idea. Do not talk with the people in the main door. There is a movie about this place (Chungking Express), and some people died here as its a dead trap. Avoid if you can.
  • If your looking for bargains and cheap accommodation then this is the place to be has you will get swamped with offers to take rooms. The rooms are probably 1 star with very basic services bed and washing area. Bring your own food and drinks otherwise lots to eat on the ground floor full of small Indian/Pakistani outlets who have pre - cooked food with a wide variety to choose from but make sure you ask the price before ordering then no sudden surprises. Average 1 person meal will cost you around 60-70 HKD.
  • A dingey, dirty, down at heel building with a huge selection of interesting small shops, hostels and restaurants. It has an old world character in stark contrast to the mega brand hotels and shops nearby. If you're travelling and looking for interesting locations, places like this are what it's all about. Well worth a visit for a curry, and we recommend the Khyber Club. Also good rates on foreign exchange.
