Thanks so much for that. Is it the Mirador Mansions? I've heard of loads of these "mansions", are they basically huge blocks with lots of hostels in? That's the impression I got.
Argh, my guide book seems to have disappeared into the black hole that is my bedroom. I don't know about the Mirador Mansions, but the Chungking Mansions are apparently notorious.
I can't provide specific hostel info, but why don't you list the hostels that you're thinking of staying at, and I can at least tell you if it's in a good area or not. For one, I can tell you that staying in a hostel in Causeway Bay is probably going to be a waste of your time and money. You can day-trip it there and that'll be fine.
