sanderbolt has indicated that this thread is about Hong Kong

Hi all, In about two weeks I'm leaving for Hong Kong, where I will be staying six days. Still looking for a budget place to stay though. Preferably centrally located and with other (western) travelers. Since I'll be traveling alone it's always good to meet others. Any recommendations?

I heard both Dragon Hostel and Cosmic Guest House are quite ok. True?

Furthermore, is there a must-see-must-do list for a week in Hong Kong? Any recommendations for things to see or to do is helpful!

Thanks in advance,
Sander

Hi Sander,

I happen upon this site: http://www.12hk.com/ while doing some research on things to do in HK (I'm going there again in mid-May). It's a pretty decent site. Maybe it can give you some guidance on your travels there.

As for 3-stars accommodations, I would recommend Bishop Lei International and The Charterhouse. Only thing is these are hotels and not hostels. Here are links to them: http://www.charterhouse.com/ and http://www.bishopleihtl.com.hk/

Hope this will help you a little.

Hi,
I lived in HK, but did not stay in any of the hostels. Here is a link to the government licensed accommodation in HK:

Also, here's a link to the tourist info for HK:

http://www.discoverhongkong.com/usa/

The big TO DO's in HK are:
- Victoria's Peak via the funicular
- Walk around Central, Soho and Sheung Wan
- Lamma Island
- The Big Buddha on Lantau Island
- Shopping in the shiney new malls and the street markets
- A hike on one of the trails on HK Island, or in the New Territories
- Bus ride to Stanley via the #6 bus from Central, be sure to get a front row upper seat
- You can eat very cheaply in HK if you avoid the western restaurants - eat where the locals eat & you'll get great food and learn something of the local cuisine

Have fun
Martha
p.s. Get an Octopus card first thing as it is used for almost every form of public transport from the buses to ferries & even at the 7-11.

Thanks for the advice! Your post was really helpful. I'm going to Hong Kong at the end of May, so I was looking for a few places to check out as well.

YMCA Hong Kong. May be one of those places is close enough to where you want to be.

hi

i believe that walking around Tsim Sha Tsui, particularly the promenade along harbor is a good idea.

if you like shopping, there're certainly lots of malls to cruise..

also...if you aren't afraid of "crowds".. then Mong Kok might be a nice choice tooo*
