Hong Kong is expensive by Asian standards. But don’t be intimidated by this small country, because over the years the availability of Hong Kong budget hotels has improved a lot. Do remember though that Hong Kong is a year-round destination and a famous tourist destination at that. There’s really no off-peak season in this country, but festivals such as Chinese New Year in February can result in price hikes. So for hassle-free travel to Hong Kong, booking a hotel ahead is recommended to ensure that you will get a room.
Like I said, Hong Kong is not cheap but although it’s not really a backpacker’s destination, you can still book cheap hotels littered in Kowloon City particularly in Tsim Sha Tsui area where most budget accommodations are concentrated and Mong Kok, a shopping district. This can help cut down the cost of your trip to Hong Kong.
Here’s a list of some of the best budget hotels in Hong Kong according to Agoda users, check the address and guest reviews when deciding where to book. I’ll write a separate blog for budget hostels in Hongkong, mostly dormitories for backpackers and budget travelers, so watch out for that. But if you prefer single, double room or family room instead of bunk bed, this list of Hong Kong budget hotel is good for you.
