I had a very enjoyable 4 night stay at Apple Hostel. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The single ensuite room and bathroom were very small but kept clean. A lot of touts and Indian salespeople in the lobby of ChungKing Mansion but you just have to ignore them. Amazing location right across from Tsim Sha Tsui station and the airport bus stop. 10 minute walk to Star Ferry pier and promenade for the light show. Minutes from malls and great restaurants. In terms of value cannot be beat.

It takes ages to get up the lift to your floor. If you don't mind being pestered by a swarm of Indian guys trying to sell stuff when first enter chunking mansion then it should be ok for you. Its not easy to meet other travellers as there is no common area to chillax! The shower was right next to the toilet! It's location is in Kowloon and very central to a lot of destinations. Would I stay at this hostel again, Never! But that's just me! Book in advanced to find a better Hostel. Good luck :)

Hong Kong is a really expensive city so I wasn't expecting too much for my money. This place is as cheap as its going to get, clean and in a brilliant location to explore Kowloon and Hong Kong island. Chungking mansions is a pretty interesting place. Glad I stayed here.

Location in TST is good, though Chungking Mansions itself is a bit dodgy. The men stare a lot... Staff are nice. There's a hot water dispenser,and pre-boiled water in the fridge. The toilet tank/cistern's water refill wasn't working, so in order to flush, I had to manually refill it with water from the showerhead. Here's a pro to having the HK style shower above the toilet! I liked that the room had a fan, not just as A/C, since sometimes A/C can dry up the room a lot.

Very sorry for the maifunction of toilet flushing water. It was the whole building problem that the water pump failed. It should be replaced by 27/11,

Probably the best hostel in Chungking Mansions, run by Chinese NOT Indians. Rooms are clean, and its very quiet there. However, it is more expensive than most other hostels there. Good a/c in rooms. Beds are comfortable, but no mattress protectors underneath sheets. No atmosphere as most people stay in their rooms, so no traveller vibe.

The people at the hostel are friendly. The mansions are creepy though, not the hostels fault. Rooms are small, but most rooms are in Hong Kong. It was also clean.

Very basic. Room was small, bathrooms tiny, but adequate for my needs. Not a place for a family. Nice and quiet. Elevators were a hassle with the hostel on tenth floor (slow and crowded), but that wasn't the hostel's fault. It is a diverse neighborhood which was great. Buses/subway, shopping, restaurants, and the harbor were convenient. I have stayed in nicer hostels, but Nikkha(?), Mom, and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.

I was happy with this place. Chungking mansion is an interesting place but the location is unbeatable. The room was clean and the staff was super nice. Toilet and shower are in the same tiny room but this is normal in HK. Can't beat $30 usd for your own room and bathroom. Chungking itself gives off a sketchy but not unsafe vibe. Would stay here again

Great spot. The people working there were very friendly and the rooms clean. I left a bottle in the room after check out and they kept it for me for several days until I could come back and get it.

Nice and neat little place, rooms are mega small but for what you pay its a fine place to just stay and sleep. Not much atmosphere as there's no communal room but anyways. If you need somewhere simple this is the place. Chungking mansion is generally all the same
