Hi
I am starting a round the world trip in Feb 2010 and heading to Hong Kong first.
I am looking for some advice on where to stay - I would like to stay somewhere that I will meet other travellers and somewhere that is clean and feels safe and has a good central location.
Any advice greatly received.
Thanks
Carla

Dragon Hostel has been recommended by several people in previous threads. I stayed there 2 years ago and it's clean with friendly staff and in a good location in Mong Kok. It should be as good a place as any to meet other travellers.

Agree with bex76. I stayed at Dragon Hostel 2 years ago after researching accom. recommendations and wasn't disappointed. Management will provide info on all questions. If you require accom. with a big room then expect to pay big bucks.

You can take Citiflyers airport bus, No. A21, to Dragon Hostel. It is an air-conditioned bus and cost HK$33 per person, you need drop off at 6th stop -- Mong Kok MTR station.
The bus will take about 35 minutes, then walk 5 minutes to Sincere house use elevator to go up to 7/F.
or, If you take taxi, it will cost about HK$300. It takes about 40 minutes.

If u like travelling by train take the Airport express train, which is a dedicated service from the airport to the city centre, u can get down at either Kowloon or Hong Kong Station. Refer to the Hong Kong guide for more details on getting to and from the airport. From Kowloon or Hong Kong you can take a metro to Mong Kong station.

I'm in Mau Wo on Lantau Island which is a very beautiful place (..make sure to visit) , but the first couple of days I arrived, I had to stay in Kowloon... comparable to an Asian city Manhattan, which can be extremely overwhelming, I feel, especially for a solo traveler.

Please beware of hostels located in CHUNGKING MANSIONS. Although there is a lot of backpacking traffic in that particular area, it is an unstable, unfriendly, and weary environment.
