This is a room with shared living room and shared bathroom in a 400ft flat. I live in the flat and enjoy meeting global travelers like you. You have a TV and DVD player in your own room with full access to living room and kitchen. Basic amenities, such as towels and toiletries, will be provided. If you are up for an unique opportunity to experience the local culture while being just a subway ride from the hustle and bustle, you will enjoy my flat.
The flat is 5 minutes walk to the Yuen Long MTR (subway) station and a major bus hub. Once you get to MTR station / bus hub, here is what you can expect:
- 30 minutes MTR ride to Central
- 25 minutes MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui (TST)
- 40 minutes bus ride to Airport (one bus and only 15HKD!!)
- 15 minutes bus ride to boarder crossing to Shenzen, China
staying at Joe's place is a great experience. 3 mins walk to the MTR very convenient.
When I book his place he was very polite to answers all my questions. I was expecting him to pick us up on the bus station but he dint show up. We need to look for his place and ask the people in the streer. Finally when we saw his place, He was not there I ask the guard to call Joe. Joe said that we need to wait for him for another 2 hours because his outside HK. He knows that He is expecting a guess on that day. How come his not in hongkong. We have no choice but to leave the things on the lobby because its a waste of time to wait for him for 2 hours.
He promise me to show the place and how to go to MRT, but he dint do it. He was in a hurry when we meet in the evening.
The apartment was so dirty when we came, there was another guest with a baby. I want to drink coffee but no utensils to use..
For me its far from the city proper. THIS IS NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE AND PLACE FOR ME AND MY FRIEnd.
The room is exactly as described, apartment is small but has everything you need and is in a very good location. Shops & restaurants right around the corner, close to MTR station
Joe is more than helpful and a great host, quick to respond.
I've stayed with Joe twice now and he's an excellent host. He rents out good quality rooms and is always willing to help.
Humble, friendly, energetic and understanding personality is joe. I must say he did everything to make us comfortable and we were lucky to get a full house as it was off season. I will highly recommend joes place for a nice time in HK
Joe's place was rad in other words super cool,with amazing views when it's a clear day from the 28th floor you can see everything! and its right in the heart of it all! Easy bus routes to and from the city and good local places to eat right under your feet will love to stay there again when I visit HK he is a good guy and the flat was perfect for us in every way ;)
And if your going ask joe to take you for snake! It's so tasty and true that it tastes like chicken ;)
This room is a pretty good value. It is priced similarly with low end hotels in Yuen Long, but offers a lot more in terms of cleanliness, facilities, and flexibility of check in and check out times. Joe was a friendly and reasonable host.
it's such a interesting area and very local, too. the room is very worth the value. close to MTR and light rail. traditional market is near by. restaurants are everywhere.
The room was well lit with natural light, clean and tidy. The location is not too far from the nearest MTR station. Host was kind enough to show me to it from the station on the first day, and flexible for my check out time on the last day. All in all a great and pleasant stay. Will definitely stay there again. A thing to note though is that this is one of two rooms in the flat, so privacy is not exclusive, but it wasn't a problem for us at all.
Joe was a great host called him when I arrived in HK Airport. Very detailed instructions to get to his place and met up with him at the Bus Station. I had the whole unit of apartment to myself, the overall environment of the apartment was pretty much what you will expect for a comfortable home. The Metro is just a short walk which takes about 30mins to central. Great place to stay if you going by HK the next time !
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
