Chung King Mansion, Hong Kong

2.2
#18 of 317 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.

  • That happens to be the honest danger is not everywhere, but not too long. Pretty India series, African people are very often recently. To go with the one woman during the day do not feel is dangerous, but not recommended.

  • Had well heard of the place, also read about it on trip advisor. had booked the spot by mistake gad real not live there. but the plan was having to visit the site and try to find any "secret" restaurants I had read about on the Internet for some time back. and then one can reportedly "get what you want ha" in and around this place. which I can confirm:-) But this place is dung dirty and a rat rescue. many petty criminal individuals who are standing and hanging, I put good brand to over weight to the other tourists so something insecure out when they stood and waited for the elevator. I'm familiar with the kind of places, and most people would probably feel insecure, this place. And it is rightly to be ha track of and attention to where you are, many pickpockets etc. When I arrived through the main entrance, I was quickly greeted by an elderly Indian gentleman who asked where I would live, he pointed me in the direction of the lift, after long waiting time of elevator I could get up on 16 floor and got quickly checked in at European hostel , no problems and powerfully sweet people. a little dirty, very small and noisy but think it was much better than the other sites, which I've read about afterwards. was on the street at night and walked around in the small dark alleys to lure what is going on. There will be the mood a little differently after at 01:00 and it starts to thin out the people on the street, one can view selected victims. guess no one shall come dung drunk and alone home from the city and believe it necessarily when his hotel room with her purse in your Pocket etc. and there is time in scams, and much more. walked around and observed several times, very cozy. rats in the stairwell that hisses of you, hehe ill Halla when I went down the stairs and on the 7th floor was greeted by a hissing rat who did not think that I should disturb anyone who piplede Nevertheless, into his "rat hole" at 7 ' end. the building is generally worn and dirty, could subsequent good spotting several rat holes on the other floors and small dark alleys behind the building and ventilation shafts and flowing with smells of waste. but I still like the kind of place, it must also be room for. and when one does not bother this more, so there are so many other much better site in the city. Must be experienced. The food in the small restaurants in the living room on the first floor are fluctuating, but seemed generally that it was ok. the good spots are often crowded and it is difficult to get space. Unfortunately not found the restaurant I was looking for, it was closed. but got so much more good. ended up moving after 2 nights, was really tired of the Indians who stood up and cried and hung out all the time, terrible language when the constant need to cry, and then wait by the elevator. do not think my room was quite good for health, with ventilation directly from your room and into/out of the before mentioned dirty ventilation shafts. Særværdighed is the site not. Also not an outing worthy. just a run down apartment block, but fine as cheap accommodation for backpackers.

  • Never again. I'am so upset. I waste my $800 for reservation(no refund) and didn't use the room..all i can say never book or have reservations...to see is to believe...they will give you nice and clean rooms in the photos but in personal u will be upset and they will give you different room from the photos that they shown. And they will just give you so much excuses...but somehow,some guesthouse are good and neat...mostly are not and old. Better you walk in..select what you desire..there's a lot of rooms available maybe except in season...
  • Many money changers giving best rates in Hong Kong, but still you compare before changing. Multicultural food from, south Indian, North Indian, Pakistani, Nepalese, Chinese and African and much more available, affordable room, backpack accommodation available. Join the experience of visiting the Award winning building
  • I always have to watch my back whenever I visit this place. I "love" it because of the great forex shops where you can get close to the spot rate for a number of currencies. However, for other things (food or watches or clothes), be careful that you don't end up buying what you may regret later 😉.
  • It really depends on the reason of visiting here. It's good to find good exchange rate here as you can find a lot of stores in a small area so it's easy to compare and choose. Fairly good for food. However, don't be scared of the people at the entrance. They are trying to sell rooms, that's their job. So if you are here it's only because u r looking for good deals. Go with a open mind and you will be alright
  • Has African and Indian restaurants. All offer good foods at cheap prices. There are lots of touts looking to sell you fake watches or get you a room in the building.
