Terrible experience.. Very narrow and uncomfortable.. No receptionist to welcome you.. I don't recommend it for travellers.. Go for a a little higher hotel price to avoid disappointment.. you'll really get upset

I used booking.com for New Reliance Inn and upon arrival at the Chungking Mansions I was leery of what I had gotten myself into. The inside is a hub of food stalls and money exchanges. To the back are the elevators and have to make sure to get on the right one to get to your block of rooms. The check-in was tricky as there is no reception, just a locked door with a camera. It's not always manned and so I had to leave my bag in a closet room and come back later to actually get my room and key. The first night I had a 2 bed room # 503 which was very nice. Then the next day I was moved to Las Vegas Hostel on the 15th floor room #151 which was very small. Both rooms had their own bathrooms with the shower over the toilet. Space is very tight in Hong Kong so one gets the real experience of how many people live here. The people helping me with my rooms were nice and I was able to store my bag again after I checked out. There was filtered water available. I think this building has quite a dodgy reputation and it is a Tsim She Tsui landmark. There's a lot of coming and going in these elevators which takes time. My biggest concern was it seemed like it could be a real fire trap. I'm rating it average as altho I have stayed in hostels all over the world, this was a totally different concept so I don't know how any other hostel would have been in Hong Kong. These are referred to more as guesthouses. Definitely budget, but the rooms themselves were ok for my purpose for 2 nights, The location for the airport bus and for walking to the Harbor and the ferry made it very convenient.

I chose the location since it is close to the train and near shopping and the ferry but I should have just stayed at the Holiday Inn next door. The owner lied about allowing me to check in late (I booked through third party who called and got confirmation prior to payment) but when I arrived he wouldn't answer the phone and the next day said he never agreed to it. He even lied on my review with the third party saying they have a CCTV and I arrived at 6am. So this man saw me standing there at 1:30am (flight got in at 11:30pm) and ignored my 10+ calls. He even took the phone off the hook so it would stop ringing. The sign also says you can come at 8am, which I did and some guy/worker phoned this owner who tells me he never agreed to the late check-in and come back at 1pm... So with a pre-paid reservation, I was not allowed to get a room. Also, this owner never refunded me my first night and continues to ignore the third party travel agent's calls and emails. When I did finally get a room 12 hrs later, the staff member told me to have a seat while I wait for him to get the key in this uncleaned, used room which had condom wrappers on the floor. But overall... the linens were clean (white) and seemed to be new tiled walls. The bathrooms are small (shower is over the toilet so everything gets wet, which didn't bother me). I did have a few roaches and was very careful to put food inside the mini-fridge so no clue where they came from. WiFi was good. The rooms on the 13th floor and the line to the elevator can be a long wait because people are going to other hostels on other floors. But overall, this place was ok just next time I'll stay somewhere more clean and honorable. The vendors inside the Chungking mansion sell everything so you don't need to buy anything like sim cards. And there are plenty of food vendors, mostly Indian food.

Stayed four nights in this great little guest house in the heart of Kowloon. The rooms are tiny .. really tiny! They are fine for solo travelers or two close friends. The room was clean and serviced daily. Aircon, ceiling fan and hot water all worked and the bed was comfortable. Staying at The Mansions is an insight into life in HK and just getting from the street to the lifts is an adventure. Finding the New Reliance is not that difficult. The building entry is via a shopping centre and the Mansions sign above the broad entry steps is easy to see looking across the road from the isquare centre. Once up the steps head straight toward the rear of the shops where the lifts to block C are on your left. Take the right-hand lift to level 5. Wait at the door and the staff will see you on camera. The New Reliance is an excellent value for money hotel right in the middle of Hong Kong's busiest shopping area. The MTR entrance is just across the road outside the isquare.

We made a reservation using a credit card. About 3 days prior to our stay, they sent an email (went to spam folder) saying the card had been denied. We missed the email, but reservation was still active when we arrived, but they demanded cash. It’s in a building with apartments cut up into tiny hotel rooms. There are many “inns” in this one building. It appears that there are many similar buildings “cut up” the same way ... our son stayed in a similar room which was tiny,but acceptable for the price etc.
