Pat Andersen says:

Great video!, thanks for posting.

Jason Martin says:

Where is the elevator at/ which floor? I’ll be staying at Travellers hostel next week and I saw it on the board in this video (:

S W ToDi says:

No decent local people will ever go to this notorious building! In fact, I had lived in Happy Valley, Hong Kong side for 35 years before I left for Canada and I had seldom go to Kowloon side except for business deal! Please do your homework before showing!

Shane S.lim says:

Not safety , feels scared while walking downstairs.

phil phil says:

The Hong Kong appartement Just like a cage for the bird. When some uncivilised people there. The rubbish Hong Kong.

jet ponte says:

i consider to stay here but upon seeing the tour….. no way. thanks for this helpful video.

Dan says:

i have stayed in Chungking Mansions many times, always at the Apple in B block on the 10th floor, the staff are lovely and so friendly. It was so good to see them in your video. I highly recommend them for a good inexpensive place to stay in Hong Kong.

S W ToDi says:

True, even in Canada, as soon as those Indian centralized in one area, the property value in that area plummets and other nationals moves out for good! It is the same phenomenon like certain Negro cities in the USA!

terryv says:

“Hostel” is not pronounced “hos-style”! Stop saying “hos-style”!!!!!!!!!

Jay N says:

pretty nuts when you conaider a room at the midrange American hotels are like 60-80 usd a night. I guess it’s pretty comparable as the price does go way up in big cities.

Reeze Vlog says:

that place, u get what u paid for… there are other places have same price accomodations, but safer….


that building should be taken down ASAP

Ri Ha Park says:

feels and look unsafe in that building

E Choi says:

Convenient location, small but individual room with individual toilet for hostel price. And lots of restaurants downstairs. I would stay.

First Up says:

Hostel, not hostile. 🙂

Steven Wilde says:

Stayed there loads of times as a uk expat doing visa runs from china. If you act like a tourist the touts will bother you. Just cheap accommodation not a holiday. You get what you pay for, it is a shit hole, there are prostitutes and drug dealers but ok for a night if your stuck

S W ToDi says:


Lets Felisilda says:

Dont even try Dhillon Hotel! Tsk tsk

Kam 77 says:

I’m staying here now. This building a trip. I’m in a newly renovated place called Peace Guesthouse. It’s actually clean. $23US per night. Can’t complain about that or the location. A fight broke out in the elevator. It’s dodgy as fuck downstairs. I don’t care, this place is an experience. I don’t feel unsafe. And outside is the biggest Chinatown I have ever explored, mmmm, dim sum!

Abhilash Nayak says:

ChungKing Mansion gives me the creeps.

Mok Sat says:

I saw some troublemakers guy or known as human disease from India or Pakistan standing at entrance, this kind people are trouble with drug smuggling, terrorism and other crime in every country they went.

Thomas H says:

Prison cells have more space.

Reeze Vlog says:

i wouldnt recommend backpackers to come here, dont be fool by the low price….

poodtang1 says:

The place is full of pushy Indians trying to sell you crap. It’s a total dump. After a while just started telling them to fuck off.
I stayed at the Apple Hostel. It was a total dump and super cramped.
Park In looks way nicer than the place I stayed at.
Pay the extra and get a room to yourself. You will be glad you did.

it'sMe TheHerpes says:

1: 06 that is a disgusting screenshot.

Brian Beeler says:

I stayed at the Apple Hostel back in February. The woman seen in the video has worked for the family [running the hostel] for twenty years. For the price I was happy and would go back. The family that runs it was very nice.

IMO everyone needs to stay at the Chungking Mansion at least once in their life. I felt safer their than many places in NYC or Boston.

paula vimu says:

It’s just so hard to find a good hostel in Hong Kong ….. but girls be careful with hostel check inn HK in wan chai the owner try to rape me and thanks god there were so foreigners who saw the situation and stop him ! It was horrible.

Sue E. S. says:
