New London Hostel
Ranked #123 of 159 Speciality Lodging in Hong Kong
Reviewed 3 April 2013

We knew from reading reviews that Chung King would not be your run-of-the-mill quiet b-n-b. Nevertheless, after the initial 'culture shock' due to the variety of nationalities, noise and hawking from the building entrance to the various stalls, it turned out to be a great 'value for money' place. New London was the right choice for us. We were a group of 5, booked online a month in advance, which gave us good rates.

When you arrive, be sure to check in at Flat D8, Block D, 11/F first. Do not ride the first elevator you see- make sure it services the right block you want to go to. It is generally easy to ask for directions as most people speak at least basic English. Ask the people manning the stalls. The FIlipina in charge of the 'front desk' of New London Hostel is very helpful and pleasant. You may also have your money exchanged here at reasonable rates, with no processing fee, just look for Raj.

New London Hostel is at the 17th floor of Building A (Flat A9, Blk A, 17/F Chungking Mansions, 36-44 Nathan Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon), but someone will take you there after you check in. The elevators only go up to the 16th floor, so it may cause a bit of trouble if you have heavy luggage as you have to go up a couple flights of stairs to reach the 17th floor.

Do not be put off by the 'Silent Hill' vibe you may get from the stairwells :) as the area is generally safe and quiet.

The rooms were clean, albeit a bit of a tight squeeze, but you have to admire the way space is efficiently maximized in general in Hong Kong. The room comes with free wi-fi, air conditioning and a ceiling fan. It has a couple of electrical outlets, a phone, and a shower with heater. If you are lucky, the shampoo and liquid soap dispenser will be full. There were towels, the sheets were clean and in the hallway there is a water dispenser (hot and cold), refrigerator and microwave oven.

For 3 nights stay, we paid 300 HKD per head, which is an extremely good deal.

Room Tip: Try to get a room from the Marrigold Hostel (New London partner) if you do not wish to climb a fligh...

Chung King Mansions is a big building with a lot of hostels in different blocks. We were in block D, 11/F completely new. 24/7 reception and security (also the owner) if you need him just wake him up if he's sleeping, he don't mind. Because the hostel is only half a year old no complaints about bugs, smelly room or what so ever.. We were transfered to this Hostel because the other one was full, this one looked better then the first one, i noticed he is not on Trip Advisor, probably because he just started...

summary:
+ Airco
+ Cheap and clean rooms
+ Good assitance, for instance: ask him for visa application (cheaper then what we found ourselfs) He also knows good party area's and cheap electronic shops.
+ Quiet room
+ Very central, close to the metro (30 meters?), close to the fairy to go to Macau en there is a Big bus tour service point 60 meters away (Wich i would not recommend because the metro is very easy to use and WAY cheaper..)

- Small room
- Very small toilet/shower (Toilet is under the shower haha)
- Chung King mansions is very crowded, sometimes you have to wait a long time to wait for the elevator.

Room Tip: Ask the New Londen Hostel if they have a place for you in the Marrigold Hostel, they share the same...
