The room is clean, the staff had been accommodating and near tourist spots Please expect 15% more on top of the indicated room rate. If you have come earlier than 2pm, expect that staff wont allow you to check-in or head to your room BUT they will eventually haggle for undocumented hkd100 to let you checkin immediately

The night before our check out, I informed the receptionist that we will be checking out by 7:30 am. He told me that's fine and we will be getting the 100HKD security deposit before we checked out. The following day, we checked out at exactly 7:30am but no one was there. We waited for almost 30mins but still no staff or receptionist. What we did was we left the key card by the window and did a 👍🏻 sign infront of the CCTV. I thought that the staff changes from their shift because it was a 24hr hostel and the staff i told that night didn't probably endorse it to the next shift. Please be mindful of these things next time.

Acceptable”

I booked this Hostel as i got amazed with the pictures provided as it shows amazingly beautiful and clean. I used our savings acct as means of payment. So i got my confirmation that i already reserved the room confirming the amount i need to pay once i arrived in the Hostel, which bothered me since they did not auto deducted on our savings acct. So the day we arrived on the location we pay the full amount in cash. Yet to our dismay they deducted the same amount to our savings acct the next day we stayed which is a total bullshit!!! For what reason? Which is unclear!! And the room is so disappointing it is expectation vs reality thing...posting a very beautiful room and images is totally the opposite when you see the room. Right now, we are still in the process of recovering the amount they deducted to our savings acct and it will take 40 business days..which is a shitty thing!!!!

NO TOWELS. MADE US PAY MORE. DIRTY PLACE. ”

DOWNSIDE: I personally booked this room months ago before our stay, informed them of a late check-in, but never got an email if should we have extra payments for it . They made us pay HK$250 more, because the guy in the reception said our original booking was at the Block D and it’s dangerous for us to stay there. Like IDK why?!? So no arguments discussed coz we just really want to rest since it’s already 3AM that we arrived and we’ve had a long trip. When we saw the rooms, it was completely different from the ones we booked! We got 1 queen sized bed and double-deck beds. and it’s a very tiny room o difficult for 3 people, the area is just so dirty and so many cockroaches running around. POSITIVE: Since HK Downtown Backpackers is located at Block A of Chungking Mansions in Tsim Sha Tsui it’s very easy to commute and take a stroll around. Avenue of Stars, Star Ferry and all other activities you wish to go is very accessible since Tsim Sha Tsui’s station is just right across the street.

VEry Bad Experience”

I booked for 8 people and they gave us a room with 2 single beds and told us it's for 4 people. The room was so small. You can't barely move. The bedding seems to be used and smelly. Then my other 4 friends were transferred to another block which became worst because it looks like a 'ghost town'. So we decided to change and gave us a bigger room but still the room was only good for 6 but we were 8 their plus my infant. Though the location was very great but decided not to go back there again and won't ever recommend it to anyone. There were a lot of people complaining and want a refund because they always give a very small room they try to compress people in one room which is actually only good for 2 but they tell good for 4. Very bad service indeed!.My first time ever among all my travels. The other people in mixed dormitory are smoking inside the room and playing instruments while singing which I think very disturbing and deafening.

Very bad experience. ”

Not so good to stay. Beddings were kinda dirty and old. The unit have undesirable smell. Door lock was so hard to open. When you arrived at the area there are lots of foreigners (mostly people from India .. PS. I DON'T HAVE ANY ISSUES WITH THEM I DON'T HATE THEM OR WHAT, JUST SOME PEOPLE), they do cat calling which is very very bad. Staffs will persuade you to add 400 dollars to upgrade to a room with own CR. As the room where we stayed don't have own cr (common cr). Try searching for a different hotel / hostel. I bet they have better facilities than this one.

Agoda Booking Make or Break”

So I frequently booked my stays with Agoda, and this is the first time that I had a disappointing stay. 1. I specifically placed the 8-9am arrival on my booking, and we arrived around 7:30 in the morning, I understand that the check in is still in the afternoon, but the least they can do is allow us to leave our luggage or could've informed us ahead. We paid additional 30hkd to leave the heaviest luggage we have. 2. The booking I made was 1 room for my parents and brother and I will be staying in the dorm type of room which is fine with me, later did they inform us that they will transfer us on two different blocks in the building and not on the stated address of the Hotel, then they offered to put us in the room together with additional cost of 200hkd which I oblige to so that we will not be far since they said it will be in the same floor and block of the hotel. 3. The AC in room 29, our room, the whole time didn't work. We complained and no solution was given, only 3 small fans.

The room was like a prison. It seems like you have a bed inside a comfort room. Once you opened the door it will take you just 1-2 steps then you're in your bed. The CR smells awful too. Not for claustrophobic. You will have no sense of time inside the room.

They tried to ask for a $100HKD key deposit. I said well this is NOT mentioned in the ad. The guy said well you can just leave your passport with me then, and when you want in the room just find a staff to let you in. I refused that totally. I said I leave my passport with NO one ever. You can ONLY shower with hot water from 9am till 12pm then from 9pm to 12am. There is NO soap in the room either. Also you have to ask for a towel. And your only given 1 towel. Do yourself a favour folks spend a few dollars more and get something decent cause this place is far from decent. I would never stay here again ever!
