I am looking for relatively cheap accomodation in either kowloon near the harbour or causeway bay but cant seem to find anything. not to mention i seem to be searhcing blind as i have no idea where the areas are located and best place to be.
need help any tips would be much appreciated.
Have you tried TP's Accommodation search? It can be quite useful, at least in giving you a starting point and some choices. Just click "Accommodation" at the top of this page and off you go. Wish I could help, but I stayed in a hotel near the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR while I was there, so I'm not too familiar with budget accommodation, but the TP search should help you some.
Alot of backpackers stay at 'chung king mansion' in Tsim sha tsui.
Best of luck!
