3yr old son ( hence the queries and also the reason for visiting HK )
If somebody can pls ans my Q's -

We are three Irish friends in our fifties and sixties .We are going to Hong Kong for three days on 26th October and then going to Vietnam We are on a fairly tight budget We have booked the Pearl Guest House Lodging Room 6A, 6/F, Mirador Mansion, 54-64Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, We realise it is a budget option but are happy enough with basic accommodation so long as it is clean and safe with good transport links . However this is a once in a lifetime trip so we could push the boat out a bit if anyone had recommendations. Nightlife is important, we like live music, good atmosphere nice food on a budget. We are not very interested in museums more in getting the feel of the city .shopping malls do not attract us . Markets are high on our list .We like quirky things There are a few things that we think we would like to see Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, the view from Victoria Peak, Ride the Star Ferry, see the lights display. Possibly the big Budda, perhaps visit Central Hong Kong park
Is the guest house location good? Any recommendations for an alternative location and accommodation would be much appreciated Is the night life good in this area? Any recommendations for live music particularly jazz

Thank you in advance.
As very basic, first "reaching out" questions for Hong Kong, business mainland (kowloon):
1. cost of living assuming good hostel (dormitory), mid-range eating places, some public transport or local taxi in the island.
2. which currency - EUR or USD to bring with me, or is it the same in terms of local customs and acceptance.
3. General use of MasterCard - can rely on it in most places? banks? ATMs? No danger of "duplicating" in shops?
4. Places of medical help / clinic in case of need, western standards.
5. words of safety/beware of........(young woman traveling alone).
6. recommended travel pages here on VT.
I will be arrive HK by this coming 16th March 2015, estimate time arrive 5am HK time.
