Hong Kong Things to Do: 2,730 reviews and 5,349 photos
The Chungking Mansions feel seedy. Even when you are walking on the other side of the street and look across Nathan Road at them they look seedy. If you cross the road and go into the market area underneath you will be hassled by all sorts of dodgy looking people trying to seel you tailor made suits, accommodation, or other things altogether more sordid and possibly illegal.
When you are around this area watch your possessions with great care. The area is worth seeing but hide all valuables away and make sure they can't easily be pickpocketed.
I wouldn't recommend you stay in either (the House is supposedly better than the Mansions) unless you are on an extremely tight budget, or want to boast of having stayed there. The only thing going for them other than the price is the location. They are extremely close to the Harbour in Kowloon.
Address: Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
