Room 30 mins from Central D

Apartment - Private room · Fung Yau St, Yuen Long, Hong Kong

The Space

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 a 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

  • Beautiful big room in three minutes from Yuen Long metro station with windows everywhere. The apartment has got a fridge and a gas heater for hot water. Cheap price - rooms in Chungking Mansions more expensive, than here. I recommend for all tourists in HongKong Adult Tourist Day Pass (it costs 55HKD) for unlimited rides on the subway during 24 hours. Good bus link to the airport. I enjoyed my 5 days in this flat.

  • My wife and I stayed almost 2 weeks here over Christmas and New Years. This was our 2nd time stays at one of Joe places. We were able to cook and enjoyed the area again. There is a mall, big grocery store, and MTR right across the street. This place of Joe's is well worth the money. It is just a normal Hong Kong apartment with 2 rooms to rent, so if you are wanting to not spend alot and enjoy Hong Kong this is a good place to stay. We will stay a 3rd time I am sure!

  • The accomodation is a good choice for money-saving travelers, everything is as described. The bed had fresh linen, the floor however a bit dirty with hairs from the previous tenant. The room is located in a small apartment that you share with another flatmate, which is not, as stated in the description, Joe, but another traveler. Everything is overall smaller and more worn than the photos promise. Nevertheless we stayed there by twos and we had enough space in the bed. Joe was a good host, Joe picked us up from the MTR and was available by phone at any time. At first he gave us unfortunately the wrong access codes to the apartment, so that it needed some discussion with the not-english-speaking concierge to get access to the house, and then we were lucky that the flatmate was at home to let us in and tell us the correct codes. At the house itself just construction works took place, so that the wide view was blocked by scaffolding and it was not to think of sleeping long. Since it was December, it was quite cold in the room, even more since the wind could blew through the gaps at the old windows and the AirCondition. On demand we got a heater and more blankets from Joe. Unfortunately, the Wifi did not work reliable, it came and went, but Joe tried hard to fix it. All in all, this is a simple but good accomodation.

  • Thank you so much Joe for letting us stay in your cozy home. The bedroom had everything we need, although small like every other accommodation in HK, the room had AC and a comfortable bed and comforter.

    The house also has a fridge and a kitchen if you wanted to store food or cook your own. The hot water works marvelously in the shower and there's also a TV in the living room.

    WIFI works great and so it's really a great price to have everything you need available in Joe's flat! I've not found any other accommodation this complete and this affordable anywhere else in HK.

    The MTR ride to Central is indeed 30mins and may take a bit of walking at the subway interchanges. But all in all it's been just a great experience at Joe's apartment.

    Thank you Joe :)

  • Perfect for my needs, i have stayed in 3 locations through this website and it works well, but for the location, the time frame i needed for, I could not be happier, place was well kept, not big, fit the need fine, supplies, and information he offered personally was priceless, he was at the bus stop at 12:30 midnight waiting, even helpped me with getting around and some personal matters. If i come to Hong Kong again and need this place i hope it is available, it is worth the extra time to travel on the train for.

  • Joe is a great guy!!

    He waited for us more than 15 mins. at the bus station and once crushed at his place took us around and explained a lot of how things works in HK and Shenzhen.
    If you look for a nice place near the border, he's the real deal!

    Also, you will meet someone in the next bedroom, which if you're a traveller, it's a plus!

    Thank you Joe, keep up with the great work!

  • This is my second stay at Joe's place. Yes, I had come back for more. However this time, my flight arrived late in the midnight to HKIA, and Joe was really kind to suggest the cheaper bus to his place and wait for our arrival 3a.m. in the cold and show us the place.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Joe's in Yuen Long, and met some wonderful people who were staying in the other room.

    We arrived early in the morning, and although our room was not ready until midday due to there being another occupant there, Joe kindly let us rest at his other apartment for a few hours which we very much appreciated! I would however recommend checking with Joe what time you can check in because although we said we'd be arriving early, it was not communicated properly to us that we would have to wait until midday.

    The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and there was a good shower, internet access and a kitchen to use too.

    Yuen Long is a great location and has a load of wonderful cafes and restaurants as well as convenience stores. It only takes about 30 minutes on the MTR to reach central HK.

    It was our first experience on airbnb but it gave us the confidence to book again!
