New Garden Hostel / Kowloon...

by chngbw

New Garden Hostel / Kowloon Hotel
Our tiny twin room cost us about US$30/day, air-conditioned with toliet/hot shower, ceiling-mounted TV and without meals. Up till to today, I still have a nagging hunch that we were being overcharged. The seemingly nice lady-in-charge (a Chinese national who works there) told us that if we stay for more than 3 days, she is willing to lower the price for us. But we were too busy exploring HK that we forgot all about our plans to shift!

Lesson Learnt: We should have made up our mind there and then! Well, the people there don't exactly differentiate between a motel and a hotel as u can c fr the pic! The moment u step out of the Airport, there will be people coming up to u to recommend various places of accomodations - these people probably recieve commission of course! This is probably one of the ways to advertise in HK since competition for accomodation is pretty stiff, I think.

Serene & I had no particular destination in mind and since it was pretty late at night (about 9pm), we decided to follow an elderly man who appeared pretty harmless & friendly.

We put up at a motel in the accessible area of Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon for the entire trip. Had actually meant to stay there temporarily and shift once we looked for nicer places with cheaper tags. No great views except for a greyish concrete wall facing our window. We were told that we have to fork out more $$ if we opted for a slightly larger room that overseeing the streets.

Anyway, one thing I like about this lodge is that there is a numerical door lock for the corridor leading into our room and many others, of course. A person would be frequently stationed in the common area in front of the door. It definitely gave us a sense of security against any suspicious intruders.

New Garden Hostel, hong kong

by dawn_charlotte

hi

i would like to ask feed back regarding this hostel. i saw pictures of the rooms and it is nice. please send me feedbacks especially those in hong kong.
i would like to know if this is accessible to public transportations and if it is near restaurants.

by the way, here's the address of this hostel
E1,F1,13TH FLOOR,MIRADOR MANSION,58,NATHAN ROAD,TSIM SHA TSUI,KOWLOON, - Kowloon, Hong Kong

RE: New Garden Hostel, hong kong

by Vita500

Well, I haven't stayed at the Mansions yet (neither Mirador nor Chungking) but you shouldn't expect anything too fancy. The building is incredibly old and shabby and you shouldn't be too scared of creepy "pets" that might be living with you. In general, their reputation is pretty bad!

In terms of location, however, the mansion is fabulous. Right in the heart of TST, Kowloon. There are about 100 restaurants within a one-minute walk, buses and the MTR are also right next door.

There are some reviews on the New Garden Hostel at www.tripadvisor.com!
Not very promising either but good to get another opinion.

Cheers,
Robert

RE: RE: New Garden Hostel, hong kong

I can't give you much advice about this particular hostel. The hostels in Mirador Mansion are better than those in Chungking Mansion in general. I've been to the building myself and talked to the hostel owners there. I've seen the rooms and they look clean. But can be loud if you are close to the reception/entrance area. There are so many choices in these 2 buildings. If you are not going during high season, you really don't need a reservation. Start from the ones on the top floor. See the room and decide if you like to stay there.

RE: RE: New Garden Hostel, hong kong

by Vita500

Actually, that's a good point: Make sure to SEE THE ROOM before you register anywhere. This seems to be very important at the Mansions and is mentioned in a lot of other posts and comments all throughout the web.
Again, the overall reputation is pretty bad...

Cheers,
Robert

Hi

Actually there are lots of hostel in TST. Mirador Mansion is not recommended in terms of security though its location is excellent, as I have paid a visit previously. Thus finally I do not recommend any hostel in the same building to my friends coming from the overseas.

Cheers
Joyce

My friend has stayed for a night in Mirador Mansion and he had no problem. If you are on a budget, that is the best value at that price range. Check out other travel forums to find out what ohter people said.

Re: New Garden Hostel, hong kong

by drshwan

Try not to stay there as the security is not good especially for a single lady.

try the YWCA in TST.

Anyone really know what New Garden Hostel is like?

by hojoon0724

I've read some good reviews and some horrible reviews.
I'm not really looking for a hotel quality but is it really unbearably horrible?
I mean, I paid 30 dollars for a single room with private bath and that's really cheap and I kinda expect nothing more but how good/bad is it?

any comments will be helpful

Re: Anyone really know what New Garden Hostel is like?

by poetjo

I've never stayed there but I've seen the property. It's in a good location but that's all I know. Normally reviews that you read by fellow travelers are pretty right on target. Here is another hostel I believe on the same property that you can check out. I've heard vrom some people on VT that it is pretty good. Here is the url http://www.asiarooms.com/hong_kong/kowloon/usa.html
you can also read more reviews there as well and do a search for more hostels or even hotels in HK through this same site.

Never stayed there but here is a link to some reviews - unfortunately they're not very good reviews http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g294217-d647068-Reviews-Kowloon_New_Hostel_Mirador_Mansion-Hong_Kong.html

Another suggestion is to check out http://www.asiarooms.com to see if there is anything better in your price range. They will give you a listing of all the hotels and lodging withing Hong Kong.

I've heard really bad things about hostels in the Mirador complex. I would avoid it if I were you. I stayed at the Dragon Hostel in Mong Kok area. Very nice, cheap, and clean.

Travel Tips for Hong Kong

When you visit Hongkong try...

by gimmick2000

When you visit Hongkong try their dim-sum. Delicious snack served with tea, Try to eat their roasted goose and congee. I bought lots of clothes, the fun part is all of them are on a discount price. Also when we went to Ocean Park we had the fun of our lives.

Travel between HK n Kowloon...

by chngbw

Travel between HK n Kowloon via a ferry! [For those who dunno, HK consisted of 2 major islands - HK island n Kowloon! :) ]

The ferry seemed like a popular form of daily transportation for the Hongkongers. u hafta pay a nominal fee for the ferry trip.

The journey though only about less than 15 mins, was rather relaxing! Most just sat back and enjoyed the waves...but we gals were too busy snapping away! :)

By leveling the island of Chek...

by Anne_Miranda

By leveling the island of Chek Lap Kok, off Lantau Island, and reclaiming land from the sea, a platform was made for the new Hong Kong International Airport. Upon arrival, our guide led us on a brief guided motorcoach tour of Hong Kong Island and through the Cross-Harbour Tunnel to Kowloon.

A sampan ride the next day took us on a tour of Aberdeen Harbour on the southeast coast of Hong Kong Island. The harbor is home to one of Hong Kong’s largest fishing fleets; the fishing junks, home to their owners, rub shoulders with luxury yachts at Aberdeen Marina Club. Given that the apartments in the high-rise buildings that most Hong Kong families live in are a mere 300 to 400 square feet, some of the junks seemed quite spacious! Also in this harbor is the famous Jumbo Floating Restaurant.

We rode the tram, built in 1888, to Victoria Peak for panoramic views of the Hong Kong skyline. We attempted to use our ATM card at two different locations here with no success. It took two more tries at the Stanley Market area before we found one that would accept my card. We have found this to be typical of our travels outside the United States…patience is the key to success. Brightly colored mailboxes caught our eye and I dropped off a postcard to our grandson who collects stamps. Living along the road to the Peak are the wealthy of Hong Kong. The farther up the mountain you go the more costly the homes become. The residence of the United States Ambassador to Hong Kong is located here.

Along with another couple, we rode the subway to the Flower Market and Bird Park. Before leaving we had a bowl of delicious noodle soup in a tiny café around the corner from the hotel. The place was crowded with locals and the food was inexpensive. It’s on Canton Street across from the Harbour City shopping, office and hotel complex, and Ocean Terminal where the cruise ship QE II was docked.

Seniors get a discount on the subway fare. Tickets are purchased from vending machines and then inserted in a slot at the turnstile. When we came out of the subway at our destination, map in hand and looking confused, a man approached us and offered to help us find our way. He proceeded ahead of us and kept looking back and making sure were going in the right direction.

The Flower Market is a group of streets with stores selling every imaginable type of flower. We turned into an alleyway and found stores with small birdcages for sale. In other alleys we watched shopkeepers working on bouquets. An elderly man setting on a box cutting his toenails with a small knife did not look up or stop what he was doing as we walked by. No one seemed to care that these Americans were in their alleys.

In a shop selling fresh fruit we purchased three bananas, and an orange that was very hard to peel. After we were through eating and had orange juice all over our hands, a man working in the store brought a water hose, so we could rinse our hands at the curb. Peelings were put in a box in the gutter. At a shoe store window an elderly Chinese man attached himself to our group. Although his English pronunciation was good we could not understand him because his sentences did not make much sense, he just rambled on. He finally left us when we started to climb the steep stairs to the Bird Park.

The Bird Park used to be an actual park where people walked their birds and visited with other bird owners (the birds were in their cages, not on the ground). Now it is a market area selling birds, cages, food, toys and other items for birds. Birds are about the only pet that one could have in one of Hong Kong’s tiny apartments. This was an interesting glimpse into the everyday life of people living in Hong Kong.

A sampan ride the next day took us on a tour of Aberdeen Harbour on the southeast coast of Hong Kong Island. The harbor is home to one of Hong Kong’s largest fishing fleets; the fishing junks, home to their owners, rub shoulders with luxury yachts at Aberdeen Marina Club.

This was an interesting glimpse into the everyday life of people living in Hong Kong.

On our last day in Hong Kong, my husband and I left early in the morning on the Star Ferry to go back to Hong Kong Island. We were headed to the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens founded in 1871, which we assumed was right next to Hong Kong Park. After arriving we learned that the Gardens were about four blocks from the Park, up hill all the way! A woman with a thick Scottish brogue, who had lived in Hong Kong for 6 years, gave us directions. We only had time to visit about half of the complex, the jaguar enclosure with a black and a spotted jaguar, the Green House, the Aviary, and the Fountain area with beautiful flowers, arbors and paths. Nannies were pushing their charges in strollers, elderly women were practicing Tai Chi, and an elderly, shirtless, gentleman was giving Tai Chi lessons to a man in a business suit.

Before leaving for the airport for our return home we enjoyed afternoon tea in the hotel lobby lounge. We had a choice of about 15 different teas and we chose the food plate for two ($15 US). Served on a tiered server the small sandwiches, quiche, pate and desserts were delicious. This ended our gastronomical adventures in the Orient on a rather elegant note.

On the trip to the airport we passed the container port at Kwai Chung, the busiest in the world, and the elegant Ting Kau Bridge, which carries traffic directly into southern Mainland China. The highway median strip was planted with young trees and ground cover. Scattered among the plantings were metal birds in flight, leading us to our way home. Our big discovery in Hong Kong was that, if you stood staring at a map looking like you were lost, someone would always come to your rescue. We seemed to need this help quite often!
