The Space

The Space
A double bed room with shared kitchen, living room and toilet with hot shower. It is NOT air-conditioned, but you can enjoy breeze from window and a ceiling fan! (If you can't stand the hot summer of Hong Kong, please book my other rooms which are located at the same place with good air conditioners.) It is located a street away from the famous Fa Yuen street market in HK. It is a good shopping and photo taking (email hidden)e room can fit two people comfortably.

The Neighborhood
The apartment is walking distance to many of the great markets in Mong Kok (Ladies market, flower market, bird market, goldfish market, etc). There are plenty of cheap and cheerful restaurants, boutiques, and stores to buy whatever you forgot to bring with you! There is also nearby a post office, public library, free business centre and swimming pool!

Transportation
This is a transportation hub in HK. You can go everything from here with HK region and up to southern part of China. It is JUST less than 10mins to 3 MTR stations (Mong Kok East and Mong Kok, Prince Edward), numerous buses including Airport Bus Route A21, Tsuen Wan and Yuen Long and mini-buses (red and green).

Fine print
It is best for budget savers, shoppers and travelers.

  • This was my first time using Airbnb and Alex made it really easy. I contacted him very late about the room, but he responded quickly and with excellent directions. He gave great tips on transit, SIM cards, etc. He also offered me a free room upgrade to a room with A/C since it was available, which turned out great since it was a hot and humid night. His apartment was very clean, the location was great and I would definitely stay again. Thanks Alex

  • We had a fantastic stay at Alexs' home. It was comfortable and had everything you need. Alex made my first experience with Airbnb very straightforward and stress free I would highly recommend him to others. The apartment was clean and I would certainly come back to stay here if I was in Hong Kong again!

  • if you want to explore the local hongkong people's life , that is idea place to stay .
    small room ,small living room , small kitchen , small washing machine , everything lookin isn mini size , but that is hongkong , and reasonable price i think . didn't have chance to meet Alex , but met his aunt , very kind and intersting woman , if you speak cantonese , you will learn part of hongkong culture from her .

  • I booked this room just to store my luggage for a 6am flight. The room was alright though I must say it was a little small but I guess all apartments in HK are like that.. Alex had everything ready and I was able to check in at 11am. I didn't get to stay in the room for long so there is nothing much I can say. I would say this room is perfect for you if you're on a budget and don't mind living in a small and crammed place.

  • Alex was great with communication and straightforward with his directions to the apartment, and also very helpful with his suggestions while I was making my way around and out of Hong Kong. He's very easy going and a nice guy to chat with - quite the cultured guy and always willing to help! The keyless entry is handy and I liked having a key to lock my room while I was out during the day. The space itself is cozy and just big enough to fit you and your things, but I was very comfortable as it was very well kept and smack in the middle of everything... One could never complain! I will definitely return here on my next visit. Thanks Alex!

  • We stayed here for just one night. The place is easy to find and very near with bus/mtr station and lot of food stall. The room is clean, quiet surrounding and comfortable although small. Alex is very helpful, he answered all my questions clearly. Housekeeping lady is kind and helpful too. We had a comfortable stay.

  • That's the first time I uses airbnb
    I came back to HK where I used to live and looked for a place that is inexpensive as I only needed to a place to sleep.
    In that context the place was as expected clean simple close to underground.
    Alex was friendly helped a lot by answering questions and all explanation i got was accurate and clear.

  • I greatly appreciate the very detailed instructions Alex gave me on how to get to his place. It is in a pretty quiet area of Mongkok and at the same time very accessible to key places around HK. For camera enthusiasts, simcity is nearby, I've got good deals at local shops there.
    I'm lucky to be accommodated by Alex , informing him only few hours before my arrival. He's very helpful.
    Will definitely consider his location again. I've had a comfortable stay.

About
my place situates at the centre of hongkong where u can reach 90% of the rest of hong kong by 24 hours public transport directly. mongkok is a very busy tourist and shopping area and my place is in the centre of mongkok that u can buy anything in 15 mins walk. as for my home, its so peaceful, quiet, refreshing that u cant believe that tourist area is just at the doorstep.i have been living this area for more than 30 years, i can show u all the local stuff tourists dont normally see if u like when i am free! towels and plug adaptor provided, hair dryer shared. my pet, tooby, is a turtle u can hardly be allegric to lol
