I was deperate to have somewhere to stay, so stayed here for one night whcih was 1 too many. Good location and that's about it. Avoid this place, there's better places around if they're not booked up.

I expected the sheets to be dirty and ripped (they were). I expected to have bugs and cockroaches crawling through my room (there were). I expected a bedroom that looked like a bathroom but had a view like something out of the movie like Brazil or Akira (it was). I expected the clerk's attitude to range from an extreme indifference...

The Chinese manager is horrible. His English is horrible but that is not the worst part. He treats you terrible. If you go the the reception area late at night he don't even open the curtain to talk to you. First he says they are closed but since we had an important thing to say he did talk to me... More

I have never stayed in such a terrible place. The woman on reception has zero skills in politeness, kindness and handling customers. She (the main staff member I dealt with) only cares about one thing, taking money from people and doesn't give a damn about their stay or comfort. Amongst a number of other things that were offensive and totally... More

Twh tai wan hotel, first of all "confirmed" it's not a hotel, "obviously" not a hostel and definitely it's a dump-yard. In the reception : one old lady may be 55yrs wearing spectacles (chinese / taiwan) sooo rude and having -0% experience in handling customers. She talks as if you are refugees coming for shelter. I had paid usd.451/- for... More

I already knew about Chungking Mansions so I didn't bother to research this particular hostel first. I do not rate anywhere one star without good reason as I believe there is always two sides to a story. Here there is not, they are only interested in your money. I had already prepaid for one night through Wotif.com so I not... More

The location is very accessible. The elevator and the reception area - a bit scary. When we reached there we heard 3 people are shouting (1 owner and 2 Filipino guests).

We are currently backpacking Asia and this 'hotel' was our worst experience in terms of accommodation. We booked a double bedroom, our 'bedroom' was the computer room, fitted with desks, computer equipment and junk under our specially made bunk beds.

Our stay at this hotel was, by far, the WORST we have ever experienced during all our trips to Hongkong. First off, they have a very RUDE manager/owner. I have no idea how to run a hotel but I'm pretty sure calling your customers "stupid" is a major boo-boo. Second, the hotel rooms were very small and cramped, you can... More
