  • La chambre est telle qu'elle est montrée sur la photo. Elle est au calme et située près d'une partie très animée du quartier de Mongkok et de la station du même nom. Logement très pratique pour visiter HK.

  • The room is pretty much like on the picture, small but comfortable. The bed is about 1.80 cm long, matrass is fine. The airconditioning works well. Room has a lock and a key is given on arrival. Building is located conveniently close to Mong Kok East as well as Mong Kok metro (MTR) station. Many restaurants and shops and street markets downstairs as well as hair salons. Alex and his aunt are nice, friendly people willing to sit down for a (long) talk. Sadly I had many personal issues (visa/girlfriend)during my stay so we ended up not talking much(sorry Alex). The bathroom is okay, and it had a turtle living in it, haha. Turtle and me binded and became best friends in the end. Fun. I would want to stay there again and I recommend the place to others.

  • I enjoyed my stay here. I didn't get to meet Alex, but he answered all my messages right away. His housekeeper was very sweet. It's very clean, but no frills. Maybe not as stylish as more expensive places, but I felt at home.

  • Alex is a wonderful host! He makes sure you enjoy your stay. He helps in many ways from making your visit comfy and shares stories & traveling information about Hong Kong. I had a great Dim Sum Breakfast with Alex the next morning. I wish you the best in all your future endeavors Alex! Safe Travels!

  • I had an okay stay at Alex's place. I only met him once, but he was very nice and helpful in finding me a laundry facility nearby as well as directions to some of the local sites. What I was a little disappointed by was that Alex's apartment feels more like a small hostel than a private home. There are three bedrooms dedicated entirely for Airbnb guests and only one room for him. I would be fine with this if he had mentioned it in the description on Airbnb, but he doesn't, which I found a little misleading. That said, my interaction with the other guests was minimal, despite the apartment being very small, so it wasn't a huge issue. The room and bathroom are very basic and not spotlessly clean like a hotel would be. Because of all of this, I think $40 is a bit pricy for what you get. However, the location is fantastic, so perhaps it's worth it for that alone. Just my humble opinion, and I mean no disrespect to Alex. I would still recommend his place for someone looking for a short, last minute stay.

  • Alex was a friendly and helpful host, and though the apartment was a bit small it was extremely easy to get around, quick to get to central and even the beach on Hong Kong Island. Comfortable facilities, good value, good people: excellent for some budget wandering around Hong Kong. Thanks Alex!

  • The apartment is ideally situated in the heart of Mong Kok so is easily accessible from all the major shopping streets - Ladies market, Sneaker street, Nathan Road, etc. and has many eating options as well. The room is small like most places in HK, but is clean and airy. Its a good place to just crash at the end of the day but not if you want to spend time indoors. Overall, everything is clean and tidy. I did have some problems on day 1 because Alex was not home and the electricity wasn't working so had to wait out until the evening when Alex was back. But he handled it and there wasn't anything else after. I really liked the way Alex has left very detailed instructions on everything

  • My wife and I stay for 3 nights this time in Alex's place. Very conveniently located room. Near to mtr or bus station, local restaurants have great breakfasts, close to the ladies market and other great shops and food. The room is clean, quiet surrounding and comfortable although small. We had a comfortable stay. Alex is very helpful and generous, he answered all my questions clearly and gave us late check out time due our night flight departure. Housekeeping lady is kind and helpful too. If we go to Hongkong another time, definitely will stay in Alex's place again. Thank you so much Alex.
