we're flying into HK in the 2nd of Feb for 5 nights. I read a lot of the threads in this forum and i have a general idea for the hostels. However it's not clear in my mind how many nights should we book in advance? We might try going into Mirador Mansions or Chungking Mansions or even Dragon Hostel.
Should we book only one night and take a look around for something decent?(is this possible?) Or should we take our chances by booking 5 nights in advance?
its usually best to book 1 or 2 nights then if you like what you see just say you'd like to stay on for longer ... i stayed @ the Mirador Mansions and did exactly the same ... you'd have to be very very unlucky if they randomly filled ALL there rooms for the nights after you had booked
your going to have a blast! - its 1 of my fav cities!
I have stayed at the Dragon hostel many times and it is always fully booked and I have seen many people turned away from there. HK is always incredibly busy so if I was you I would book all 5 nights. But I am sure there will be places like Mirador Mansions that will have rooms. But the Dragon is a very nice hostel and in a great location so that is why it is always busy.
