Chung King Mansion, Hong Kong

2.1
#32 of 359 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.

  • If you have kids with you, don't dare try this place. The elevators are so far from the entrance of the building. Not safe for families tho the place was in everywhere you wanna go for shopping.  more »
  • About 20 years ago, I read Kotaro Sawaki's late-night express, and every time I went to Hong Kong, I always stop by. Currency exchange in Hong Kong is exclusively here. I think that it is good to exchange money in the best place compared with the rate of some exchange offices near the entrance. The image that the touting card etc. is no longer persistent than before. There is no problem if it goes through even if it is called. It's a bit brave to go to the back, but there are also shops that put Ayurvedic soap, and it's fun to take a peek.

  • Be prepared for tiny rooms and beds, noisy environment, paying cash for your accommodation (even if you booked with a credit card) and waiting in a line for the elevators. If you are 190 cm or taller, consider another options or at least try to ensure a large bed. The only good thing about this building is the convenient location. The prices should be low as well, but that depends on the time of the year - for example during the Christmas and New Year holidays you will have to pay more.
  • Amazing location, lots of good food in the area and stalls downstairs. Elevator may take a while but definitely not as long as some people make it out to be. Definitely safe unlike mentioned online with police patrolling and plenty of people. Stayed in block A and room was a pleasant surprise too.
