The whole of Hong Kong, including Tsim Sha Tsui and Kowloon, is easy to get around, so exploring the city from any of these places is quite easy.
The Kowloon area also has a number of backpacker hostels on offer, mainly for budget travellers who only require a basic room. Below are all the Tsim Sha Tsui hostels we have featured.
Many of the hostels you might find yourself booking are in Mirador Mansion or Chung King Mansion, an important thing to note for people staying in these hostels is that there are some lesser-quality imitators, also in Mirador or Chung King, which may try to con you into staying at their place instead of your desired hostel.
Always ensure to have a print out of your booking on your person, and head straight to the address yourself, don’t talk to people who seem desperate to get you into their hostel, just shake your head and go directly to the address you have on your booking confirmation. Some of the imposters even rename their hostel differently, to the ones that are featured in the Lonely Planet guide books.
As long as you are aware of these touts, you will be fine, just head straight to your given address and make sure they are expecting you. If you are not sure if you’re in the right place, don’t just simply hand over your booking confirmation straight away, keep hold of it until they find you in their system.
