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
Joe is nice and friendly. He showed us around and provided helpful information spontaneously.
Joe met us at the Westrail and walked us back to the apartment. He introduced us to our housemate. We stayed for 3 nights. It's a nice and quiet neighborhood. The room is not as clean as it is shown in the picture. There is water stain on the curtains. We were out of toilet paper on the second day. We love the surrounding especially the bar nearby. It is considerably near to the mall and restaurants. We would definitely come back if the place is cleaner.
The emailed directions and instructions for how to reach the flat was great! I arrived in HK pretty late because my flight was delayed but I still managed to find the place rather easily without help; Joe wasn't in HK at the time but he did give me someone else's contact should I encounter problems.
The cute pictures (in terms of bedsheets and floral vases) isn't quite reflective of the actual room but everything was decently clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Seeing that we came in October, the weather was still rather hot and humid but the AC worked beautifully every night.
One thing I noted was that the showers weren't hot but lukewarm/cool. I didn't find that enough of a problem to contact Joe but it's something to consider if you are really particular about it.
Overall, we had a lovely time in HK. Yuen Long is far from the more touristy areas but with the advantages of an inexpensive place and a convenient subway system, we never found the location to be much of a hassle.
I'd definitely stay at one of Joe's flats again next time.
The house is near MTR which is a good location. It is very convenient transportation for my friends. And Joe is very nice.
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.
