I used my remaining paid holidays from my previous work and decided to flew to Hongkong by myself and met with friends in Hongkong. Flying with Peach Air via Kansai International airport in Osaka for 28,000JPY round-trip. Arrived in Hongkong almost noon, bought myself Octopus card for 150HKD to be used in Airport Express and MTR the whole duration of our stay. Rode the Airport Express to downtown Hongkong for 100HKD. 50HKD in your Octopus card is some kind of deposit to be refunded when you return the card upon leaving Hongkong.
We checked ourselves in European hostel located inside Chungking mansions for 2840HKD for 5 nights(family room) and 280HKD for a night(single room) via Booking.com. If you want cheap accomodations, better check out the hostels in Chungking mansions. It might not be as nice and great as the hotels, but for us, since we were out all the time and we`re just inside to sleep and take a bath, the accomodation we chose was okay with us. But just be aware of the strangers around the area offering accomodations and other services. Almost all of them are Indian and the area smells Indian curry and cuisines.
