Trying to Find the WORST (and Cheapest) Hotel in Hong Kong

Hey Laowinners! ◘ NEW MERCH - Cha Bu Duo Shirts - Hong Kong is expensive. That is something most people know, but hotels in Hong Kong can be next level expensive. On my last trip to Hong Kong, there was a big electronics conference in town, and it was almost impossible to find an affordable hotel, as all prices were more than double. I made it my mission that week to find the cheapest hotel. The results were hilarious. ◘ Support me on Patreon for early release, and much more! ◘ Donate and support this channel through Paypal ◘ OR Become a Sponsor on YouTube: ◘ Donate and support this channel through Bitcoin : 1L7LJrpNQZMvog4esPn2oEiK1uBN81DVAS ◘ Litecoin: LeByuvwSRQbE7cPZJfSEEAgiDewww7HrwP ◘ Ethereum: 0x456E5A9B875d4eF8DCb70eB1F7Fa376C520b206C ◘ My TV show: Conquering Northern China: ◘ Conquering Southern China ◘ Discount code for both shows: laowinning ◘ Join me every week for videos about China!

I was going to say that as a HK resident you can find decent hotels for under $200. That first hotel looked like an hourly hotel.

How in hell did you pay that much for those rooms, i always travel to Hong Kong for fairs, on high seasons and even on working day. Never have pay that much, if you wanna stay near the center go to the Bridal Tea House near Hung Hom, never pay more than 130 USD. If you wanna stay for cheap, Tsing Yi has about 3 quite decent hotels for under 70 USD (Almost everyday you will pay under 60), names are RAMBLER OASIS HOTEL, WINLAND 800 HOTEL and RAMBLER GARDEN HOTEL

Don't scare people, the prices are typical in HKD, not USD. Even if the prices double or triple during an event, you were ripped off if your prices were indeed in USD. I've got a double room at the Royal Plaza in Mongkok for ~150 USD in July and a crap hotel is WAY cheaper, even during an event.

Would have been great if we can see the actual videos showing the actual size and condition of the room, instead of too many unnecessary b-rolls. Just my two cents.

I never went inside Chungking mansion, but I was harassed by a gang of Indian drug dealers who did the same thing to every other person who walked by the property at night.

My go-to hotel in Mongkok is literally only big enough to open the door and sit on the bed. Not bad for about £15 a night though

Chunking mansion, Nathan road. Cheap dive rooms. Indians selling drugs (buy watch sir? You want suit made? What do you need sir? Weed? Hash? girl? what you need sir?). African hookers. Indian food. Smells like curry, piss, and mold. 150 HKD.

I have never been to Hong Kong, but I once got a decent room for 75 USD in central Shanghai, and a very big room in a high rated hotel for 300 USD in central Tokyo, hotels can’t be that expensive in Hong Kong, it should be HK dollars right?

It’s really hit or miss in Hong Kong. It’s better to stay in a big hotel chain. Your room will be bigger and less chance of cockroaches and dangerous areas.

Are the hotel room prices in HKD? Cause 150+ for those rooms are hella expensive lol I remember paying only 94 USD for 2 twin beds, nice and comfortable room with balcony in Hong Kong island, not in Kowloon which should have been even cheaper than Hong Kong island.

This guy needs to admit his BULLSHIT that this is HKD and NOT USD. Honestly, if you keep ignoring this you will become the biggest troll. No more respect as a YouTuber from me. You are sick and mislead people with such a video. NO A electronic fair does not raise prices like this bullshit, I've been there too and done that. Screw your bullshit man, be a man and own it up.

In most hotels, when the fire alarm goes off, all of the doors automatically unlock for safety. Thieves will trigger the fire alarm for this reason. Don’t leave your wallet or purse in the room when the fire alarm goes off, rookie mistake.

I don't know where you found these hotels but if these prices are true you got fleeced. 250 US dollars is nearly 2000 Hong Kong dollars. That is more than enough to stay in a 3 star hotel in the heart of Central, let alone in a shithole like Mong Kok.

This is either a stupid joke or you got ripped off like no other. For $150-$250 USD you can get a good hotel in hk/kowloon. The places you stayed shouldn’t even cost $100 USD. smh

You wasted your time the first few days, everybody knows Chungking mansions are where its at! A must for any budget traveler to HK. Just make sure you keep your bags zipped tight and keep em off the floor. (cockroaches will make their way in your luggage and follow you home)

Or you get bullshit for the price! 😂 The cheapest hotel in hongkong I have stayed cost about $80 and its look like your $150 hotel! Make me curious!

The very first time I went to HK, I was completely clueless. I was afraid, but it turned out that I was not afraid enough and the Chungking mansion became my home for a week :D i have many stories from that week, was slightly traumatized and didn't want to return to HK for a long time, but looking back, all I can do is to nervously laugh about it and thank God for all the luck I had 😁

I went to Hong Kong last March and I was able to find a cheap yet good budget hotel near Jordan Station. I only spent around USD70 for my 4 nights of stay. Guess it pays off when you booked your accommodation beforehand. AirBnb helped a lot
