Thanks, Miloh.  Who wrote the suggestion?  Do you have her email? My limited experience with the Tsim Sha Tsui are is that hotels cost $150 per night.  I'd like to email her and get more info.  $25 per night would be perfect.  But I'm also communicating with people I know there to see if they can find cool places for us. Mitch.

I'm organizing my second hacker trip to China.  It will be from 4-April through 24-April, ending up at the first China Maker Faire (which will be called China Maker Carnival), in Beijing.
We'll visit hackerspaces in Hong Kong, Shen Zhen, Shanghai, and Beijing.  And we'll visit Seeed Studio (and their manufacturing) and the electronics mall in Shen Zhen; the electronics mall and my manufacturer in Shanghai.  And local geeks will show us around wherever we go.

Here's more info on the trip:
There's still some openings, if anyone is interested.  You can add you name to the list if you are interested (it's a wiki page).  The first 8 people (including me) who get their plane tickets are in!

Our first stop will be Hong Kong.  Hong Kong is a wonderful city!  It's also expensive (unlike the rest of China).  I'd like to stay there 3 nights, or 4 if we can find a place that is affordable.
Anyone have any suggestions on where to stay while in Hong Kong?

Just got a first response about places to stay in HK
she wrote:"In terms of places to crash in HK...I suggest hotels in Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui area. A tiny little room goes for USD25 a night. Probably the best deal in town."

Hope that helps,
