    Cheap accommodation for 7 days?

    I have a 3 friends (poor students!) who're coming here to visit me for around a week in late October. Since I can't accomodate them where I live, they'll have to stay elsewhere. Looking at the hotel rates we've found that they will have to pay at least around $7000 for a week, sharing a triple room. It looks like late October is a busy season for the hotels, the rates are much higher than in June-August for example.

    Does anyone have a good suggestion for how to spend less on accommodation, a part from the few hostels? Are some serviced apartments available for such a short stay, is it cheaper and worth the savings?

    Any recommendations would be appreciated!

    The serviced apartments might be cheaper for 3 people.

    We've got some hostel rates on

    October is peak season .. book early and you might be able to get good rates.

    I'll try and find the number of a consolidator who might be able to help you ..

    Hi,

    May be you can try the serviced apartments offered by the University. As far as I know, the rate for ensuite (two-bed room) is HK$450/night/room. HK$200/night/room for one-bed room. If you interest, you can call at 27391224 for booking. But you must be hurry, their booking is always hot.

    Hope this will help.

    U can also try some good guesthouses...such as the Noble Hostel for example in Wanchai...

    I have some friends that usually go there and a triple clean room cost about 350 for a night..so for 7 days it won't be more than 2.500 HK$

    If you need more info (location, phone number) just ask, no problem...

    And if all the above options sound bit expensive, Try rock bottom price guest house in TST at Chung King Mansion, Mirador Mansion......

    Hi,
    Try this website.
    It’s an alternative to the Chungking & Mirador Mansions, grim and filthy generally and a bad security

    good luck
