- Most of the promotions from other hostels focus mainly on customer service and avoid the room facilities and size. After secret investigation, it's concluded that their hostels and rooms are small such that customers fail to sleep if they are not too tired.
- Their description says that all other Hong Kong hostels are just look like theirs. One should be aware that they cannot represent all hostels in Hong Kong and their descriptions are misleading. Before 2007, their description may apply, but now it's totally changed.
- Rooms equipped with windows are especially important to customers. It indicates whether the room has fresh air. Regarding some hostels avoiding promotions of room facilities (e.g. with windows or not), then you must definitely get a tiny room without window if you book their rooms.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
A friend and I were supposed to stay at New Garden Hostel but as we were in the mansion, the address which is 13f Flat D1 cannot be found. We went to the reception area which is across the hallway and handles USA Hostel, New Garden and a couple more. The receptionist was talking loudly to someone over the phone and me standing there made him furious. As I was handing him the booking confirmation and paying the amount +100hkd as deposit, in a high pitched and still disgusted voice, summoned someone to guide us in a room on the 10th floor of the mansion. Nothing better, the one he summoned was neither accommodating and as much as possible avoided any conversation with us who are HK-first timers.
Although the room is small, it is clean with free amenities as follows: free wifi, towel, and other toiletries, tv (not cable) aircon. No bed bugs as other reviewed it. Another downfall is that we cannot stay in our room on 11am-630pm according to a note inside the room coz it is undergoing renovation. Also, no windows contrary to what they are advertising. There are also some distracting sounds that are quite irritating when you are trying to rest.
Service = poor
Facilities = ok except for the television which the only channels are in Chinese, and I am no speaking Chinese whatsoever
Value = so-so
Cleanliness = very satisfactory. everyday room service.
Location = great. center to anything as HK is quite small.
Overall = If you have a budget, book YMCA or any other place rather than Mirador and Chungking mansions for the buildings themselves are old, with too many people and noise. ALso, corridors and hallways are not clean and are rather smelly. But, if you are a backpacker, you can consider this place for it will give you a run for your money except for the receptionist who in my opinion, do not want any customer.

the location is very good, near in everywhere....
