  • Micheal, thank you so much for letting me stay, had an amazing time with you! Micheal's place is ideally located, minutes away from yau ma tei mtr, an uber hip area. Oh - did I mention that he's great too?:)

  • It is a great place! Michael is a really nice and kind guy, very informant about things you can be interested. The studio is like you can browse around for hours looking at the carefully picked objects, like the doll radio with switch tits or E.T. with red hoodie. The location is perfect, right at the Temple Street night market, where you can find great food all the time. Michael, thanks for all! :-)

  • I stayed at SSS for a weekend in January and absolutely loved it. Michael is a wonderful host and all around nice guy. The place is in a very central location and compared to the cost of nearby hotels, SSS is a true bargain. Great character and a lovely place to stay. Thanks Michael!

  • Smart, creative, kind but above all, informative. The apartment is placed in an amazing location, the heart of Kowloon; you feel more like a local as a guest in this chic yet vintage studio. rather than a tourist. SSS is filled with character, the host is such a friendly artist and very well respected in the community that the stay became more like a lifestyle and lovely short term home for us. Much better than any hotel or hostel; our belongings were safe and we had great conversations with the host over tea that he made for us. Hope to enjoy again someday in the future!

  • Shanghai Street Studios was an amazing creative place. I ended writing a new song there, inspired by the sights, sounds, people and food around the neighborhood. The interior is especially amazing with the eclectic colorful collection by Michael. Mic was gracious throughout the trip (he showed his favorite cafe, places around the neighborhood and introduced his friends as well). It was a great unique experience that is perfect if you're a creative person working in the arts.

    The location is really central - about a 5 min (or less) walk to the Yau Ma Tei MTR station and the shopping stretch on Dundas Street. It's so near the Hong Kong International Hobby and Toy Museum which is pretty neat and very close to Broadway Cinematheque if you feel like catching an art film.

    Tons of great food around the area, near a small magazine/ convenience stall if you want to get some bottled water or snacks (opens till late). If you like hanging out late, the location is great since it's so near Mongkok.
