Hong Kong: Why Taisan Guesthouse for Budget Travelers?

In terms of where to stay? I am not the type of person whining about the fugly ambiance of the place nor the not so gorgeous bathroom and restroom (as long as the place is good, safe, and clean)! 

If you're tired then rest and don't complain (expect to get tired if you're traveling noh!). 

Don't just rely to your tour guide or friend who has been to that country a dozen times...RESEARCH!!

As long as the place is safe with clean bathroom and toilet, good quality air condition, not annoying bed, free clean towel to use, and good view... I am so fine, though who doesn't like to stay to a 4 to 5 stars hotel noh?!

When I found out from PEX community that they highly recommended to stay in Taisan Guesthouse in Burlington branch for a tight budget traveler, I immediately inquired and reserved a room with them during my first visit in Hong Kong. And when I visit the country for the second time with budget traveler friends, with no doubt I chose Taisan Burlington again (specifically requested the room 18).


P.S.: sorry our room is messy.

Rooms are affordable:

For one to two persons -- range from HK$400-450/night.
For three persons -- HK$500/night
For four persons -- HK$580/night (if five people to sleep in a quad room, just add around HK$50/night )

If you're a group of six, I suggest to take two rooms.

You must pay a HK$500 deposit to reserve a room through Paypal (plus HK$20 for the fee).

Why to stay in Taisan?

-- unlike to other hostel or guesthouse building, Taisan's bulding where we stayed is very safe.
-- easy access to places you want to explore.
-- near to fast food chains scattered in TST
-- if you run out of money, HSBC and Citbank is near the building to withdraw
-- a few steps to ride MTR
-- a few steps to ride A21 (5:30 am to 10:00 pm schedule) or N21 (10:00 pm to 5:10 am schedule) bus to/from airport
-- a block away to ride Airport Express FREE shuttle to Kowloon
-- Filipino caretaker.. you know how hard to communicate with Hong Kongers an English language literate caretaker like Filipino would be an easy breezy thing for travelers.

Located along Nathan Road, if from the airport and will ride A21/N21, your pit stop is the 12th stop of the bus.
If from the airport and you'll ride the airport express:

-- If from Kowloon, ride free airport express shuttle K4 then your drop off point is the Mira Hotel in Kimberly Road
-- If from Tsing Yi and Hong Kong MTR station, ride MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui station then exit B.
