The room itself was great! Simon did a great job of keeping it tidy, replacing the bed sheets and towels on a very regular basis. The lobby of the hotel made us a bit nervous, however!

Small and a little cold, but Simon was great. He gave us everything we needed and was always available to help us or answer any question. You couldn't tell from outside, but the hostel was really quiet. Thanks, Simon. 감사합니다!

The hostel was a good experience. The room was indeed small, but well equipped. I recommend the hostel.

Simon was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a good location close to the Metro and walking distance to the night market and pier. The only drawback was the 1 slow elevator, however we took the stairs.

The Guangdong Guest House lived up to it's good reviews. Simon is a really nice host who thinks about lots of little details, like providing DVDs to watch in your room. He was very professional and made us feel secure and relaxed. The room was clean and met all of our needs. The stay was straightforward and easy from check-in to check-out. Nice place, nice host. Thanks again Simon.

The guangdong hostel misses a common room. Except that, it's a very good place to stay!

Great hostel with a great owner, Simon was so helpful and nice. Let us pay in US dollars, had outlet adapters, and anything else we needed. The rooms was a decent size for Hong Kong standards. I wouldn't recommend this building to older couples as it can be a bit sketch downstairs with people selling drugs, but that seems to be Kowloon in general.

This is a decent, clean place within Chungking Mansions. The rooms are very small, although I think that's the case in all of Chungking Mansions. It is somewhat pricey for what you get. But as mentioned, the rooms are clean, safe, and Simon is nice and helpful. It helps that it's only on the 5th floor, because you can walk down the stairs relatively quickly; the single elevator can sometimes have long queues (again, though, that's an issue of Chungking Mansions in general).

I just want to say, "We're so glad to have met a family on Simon, the owner. We feel very much at home in Hongkong due him. Guangdong Guest House is the place to be. Very clean, neat and houses most of the basic necessities you would want in a home out-of-town. Good job, Simon, and keep it up! See you again!"

This is a hostel, not a 5 star hotel. Clean, comfortable bed & room. Very helpful proprietor. Great location in the middle of Hong Kong hustle and bustle.

Arriving at midnight in Chung King Mansion is not a great experience due to the constant barrage of strangers with 'better offers'. The Hostel itself is excellent and Simon runs a great place with attention to detail. The service and attention are fantastic. Facilities and rooms are very clean. Overall a good stay.

The owner was very kind and took his time explaining everything about the place and the room. The only problem was there was a little trouble with the wifi. But nothing that really ruined our experience. I will definitely stay here again!

I've started in many hostels in Hong Kong and ChungKing Mansions and this is by far the best! Simon was very thorough, kind and helpful. The room was very clean and equipped with a tv, DVD player, adapters and a nice bathroom. I was very happy with my stay and will definitely stay again and recommend to my friends. Thank you Simon!

Guangdong Guest House was a perfect place to stay in busy Hong Kong - especially if you are on a budget. Simon the owner is very friendly and makes sure that the rooms are cleaned very well on a daily basis. I would recommend staying here to anyone!

Simon is a very nice guy who keeps the space very clean. Chungking mansion is special around HK and a must when you want to travel offside the big hotel chains. Regarding opportunists in the surrounding area offering hostel, tailor, watches, handbags and what not, it's unusual for HK/China, but more relaxed than other middle-east/asian tourist areas. The location was perfect for us, because unlike Central, life's on the street and not caged in malls. Simon's hostel is probably The Best to stay.
