Dormitory ?

Ma Wui Hall (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... 


Rooms ?

Only a few affordable accommodations for travelers on the island, mostly in Causeway Bay, one of the busiest and most polluted place of HK but also a shopper paradise and home to Victoria Park.  Rooms there are bigger and better looking than in TST and they usually come attached with a homely atmosphere (a lot of guests have negotiated long stay). Booking in advance is no longer necessary but it would be a good idea to make a phone call. Prices varies between 200 to 300. Some locations to check :

Leighton Lane, Phoenix Appt or Pak Sha Rd
:

With the exception of Causeway Bay Guest House (Leighton Lane, 2895 2013, Sgl 250 / Dble 350 / Trpl 400), most of the guesthouses in the area charge by the hour (basically 120 for 2 hours). 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...
