(2817 5715), YHA hostel, Top of Mt Davis, 1 hour trip from Star Ferry
Pier in Central (Bus 5B to the terminus at Felix Villas on Victoria Rd, then 20
mn walk up the hill). The view is the reward but is it really worth the fuss ?
A good address in Wanchai ?
The Jaffe Court (Tel :2511 4436 Fax : 2507 5265) keeps a low profile on 41, Fleming Road , at the corner with Gloucester Road, below the exchanger. It is a bit noisy with traffic but cozy rooms equipped with a kitchen used to cost from HK$350 only. Nowadays, they apparently rent only per month with prices ranging from HK$6900 to HK$14900. It would cost however nothing to call them to check if a room is available for a shorter term...

between 200 to 300. Some locations to check :

Overnight stays are also offered from 200 to 300 (sat & PH) : if you arrive at 10 or 12pm, can leave at 10 to 12am the next day and do not mind the activity of your neighbors, this is a place to consider : the double rooms are very comfortable and clean and come fully equipped. Some even have round bed...
