Me and my wife are heading to Hong Kong for 2 weeks over Chinese New Year in February, we were wondering if anyone has any recommendations of places to stay, we like budget but clean and safe!
I don't know about cool but cheap I can do: I stayed at a place called Lee Garden Guest House. It was quiet, air-conditioned, safe and located in downtown Kowloon near a tonne of great eating places. I was there in mid-2012 and it cost me about US$55 a night for a single room. It will surely be more around New Year though.
P.S. Take a ferry to Macau if you want to get away from it all. There are buses from the ferry terminal that will take you all around the island. about 5 years ago
