Chung King Mansion, Hong Kong

2.2
#33 of 240 in Shopping in Hong Kong
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.

  • Far from the safest part of Hong Kong, but still interesting. If you appear "foreign", expect people to follow you asking you to visit their restaurant/buy custom made suits.
  • Perfect budget hotels. Be mindful even if the online booking shows different hotels but all of them are same.
  • As Gareth Price said its "The cheapest place to stay for visitors to Hong Kong. To get to the hostels and guest houses, you need to go through a shopping mall full of South Asians and Africans hustling whatever way the can. Not that there's anything wrong with that (offers of illegal drugs aside), but it might be a bit much if you're not used to it." I couldn't agree more.
  • Some amazing Indian restaurants in here. The ground floor is like a bazaar with lots of little stalls selling things like SIM cards. Upper floors contain lots of very cheap hostels and restaurants. When you walk in you will likely get swarmed by people asking you to go to their restaurant or if you're interested in watches, suits, and hash. It can be an overwhelming and uncomfortable experience for some (especially if you're alone), but there's also an element of danger that may be fun for some. Gets much more seedy after dark.
  • If like eat Indian food & If man need cheap dorms... Or go up to other side cafe... Nice French toast & coffee/tea/ice red bean set...

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
