For Further Information / Tips on Travel around Hong Kong, please visit Trip Advisor or Discover Hong Kong (Hong Kong Tourism Board Official Website).
Top TIP of the day:
Each of you must get an Octopus Card that save $ and time, travel around Hong Kong without looking for coin and searching for the right note. Octopus Card smart card is the most useful & convenient type of Hong Kong Travel Pass where it is a rechargeable and contactless 'smart card' used on most forms of public transport (Bus, Minibus, Ferry, Peak Tram, Tram & MTR Trains, as well as settling payments at all major Convenient Stores, Fast Food Restaurants, Starbucks, 7-11, Supermarkets, Bakeries, Self-Service Vendor Machines and Major Photo Service Outlets.
Octopus fares are sometimes 3% - 10% cheaper than ordinary fares on most trips made on the MTR network, while reductions could apply for transits of specific bus services. Just touch your Octopus card over the Octopus reader and your payment will be deducted instantly.
The price of the Octopus card (HK$):
⌘ Adult: Deposit $50 + Stored Value $100 = Price HK$150
⌘ Child & Senior: Deposit $50 + Stored Value $20 = Price HK$70
In addition, there are two types of Airport Express Tourist Octopus:
⌘ Airport Express One Free Single Journey + 3 days unlimited travel on MTR + $50 deposit + Stored value $20 = Price HK$220
⌘ Airport Express Two Free Single Journeys # + 3 days unlimited travel on MTR + $50 deposit + Stored value $20 = Price HK$300
The deposit is refundable or you can retain the Octopus card as a souvenir or for use during your next visit.
When you arrive at the Hong Kong International Airport do NOT buy your Octopus card at one of the vending machines. If you have a foreign passport it is cheaper and easier to purchase it at the special kiosk near the exit to the express train. They can speak English well and will refund your unused card value when you depart. At the kiosk you can also buy a so-called Airport Express Travel Pass, which includes two rides (typically to HK Central and back to the airport) on the Airport express train, AND three days of unlimited travel on the MTR metro, all for around 300 HKD. This combo card is also a regular Octopus card so it can be charged with extra credit as explained above. This is also a way to extend the usage of the card to more than three days.
You can add value to the smart card at MTR stations and all retail outlets that accept Octopus payment.

Highly recommend staying here! Great location, the apartment was clean and had everything you'd need to have a comfortable stay. Crystal was also a great host. She was very helpful and easy to contact.
The apartment gives you a sense of what it'd feel like staying on a typical Hong Kong apartment, which adds to the experience.
We'll definitely be looking forward to staying here again on our next trip!!
This was a great first experience on airbnb. She met me at the place and was so kind and efficient. Everything worked really well - good equipment, nice space and all. So convenient for buses and MTR and being next to the market was delightful.
Shortest Review that I have :-) Please do let me know if there is any suggestion / feedback in order for us to improve for our service (to your future booking and better service to other guest). Once again, thank you for choosing to stay with us. You have been one of the Great Guests.
CS Lee was very easy to communicate with. She was responsive and helpful throughout my stay.
This was a great stay! I had everything I needed and if not the host was very helpful and would get me what I needed if possible. I was even provided a sim car which was great for maps! The description and photos were accurate. Lots of benefits with the place
This is my first time booking through AirBnB, and I had such a pleasant experience staying at Crystal's that I can't believe it's taken me this long to do this!
Both Crystal and Judy (the housekeeper) are very friendly and only a phone call away if you need anything. Since the building has a few steps before the elevator, they'll be sure to help you lug your luggage too. Very helpful for a single female traveler like myself.
The place is located right on a major road with a ton of transportation options to go anywhere in HK. It's right in between Causeway and Wanchai (5-10 min walk towards each), which is perfect for shopping and great food, yet far away so you're not in the middle of the chaos all the time.
The common area is kept up well, Judy comes every other day to clean I believe. The other housemates are also respectful of the common area so you won't see any clutter around. The room itself is spacious for HK standards and has all the basic amenities that you'd need for a single traveler. Crystal is very accommodating and would try to provide you with what you need if you ask! Before I moved in, I noticed that there isn't a mirror in the room (other than the bathroom one), and they were able to get me a mirror :)
My only gripe about the place is that the Internet can be slow at times because the room is situated farthest from the router. A usual traveler probably would not notice, but I had to do quite a bit of work during my stay.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
**edit: Crystal reached out to me afterwards to let me know that there is LAN connection available which would have much faster connection. This just goes to show how much she cares about her guests that she would respond to me even after the stay :)
Hi Christina, thank you very much for your positive review. Regarding your wifi issue, you should have raise the issue :-) FYI, there is one extended LAN cable from the data socket underneath the TV / above the table, where you can use and connect your laptop where data speed would be around 30MB to 100MBps easily :-)
his place is at one of the best location in HK. Very central and convenient to move everywhere efficiently.
The room are well thought, bright and very calm for HK standards. There is Wi-Fi all ready and a double layered glass that protect you from the heat and the noise of the streets. Bathroom and bed are spacious and comfortable.
Also both Crystal the owner and Judy the helper are very nice and helpful.
First of all, when we entered the room we noticed that the bed was not made up. It was like someone just slept in it. The bed was very high. My busband, average height for a Chinese, had to climb up.The boy who came with you was sweeping the floor. (what does that tell you?) Shouldn't cleanliness be done before admitting a tenant? You even threw your shopping bag under the hangers where the clothes were hung.There was only one chair for two people. The tile floor was slippery so was the bathroom floor which was cement. I had to walk gingerly holding on to something for fear of falling. Your shampoo and soap bottles were on the floor. There was no place, a shelf or a ledge, to hold toiletries. When I opened the medicine cabinet to look for shelves and I found them so dirty I had to put toilet paper to line them. I don't think the place was cleaned after the last tenants whom you rented to for a much lower rent, $200 for 3 nights. You left the debris because you did not clean the room. I doubt if you even cleaned the bed sheets and pillow cases for us. Am I not telling all the facts? When you met us you mean you did not know that we are elderly people? The place did not look like what your pictures look at all. Now how can I put all that in my review for the public? The one good point for your place is the location, very convenient. I hope you will fix up your place, rearrange your furniture and cover your bathroom floor before an accident happens. Good luck.
A VERY GOOD LOCATION FOR EVERYTHING....D ROOM WAS CLEANS ENOUGH TO STAY.AND FOR CRYSTAL SHE WAS REALLY HELPFUL. BUT AS U KNOW U REALLY DON READ THE TERMS AND CONDITON CAREFULLY RITE..??? THIS BUDGET ROOM WAS GOOD TO STAY BUT THE ONLY THING I DON REALLY AGREE IS, SHE CHARGE ME FOR ELECTRICAL BILL... !!! EVERYTIME WE GO OUT WE TURN OFF EVERYTHING BUT IN THE END I STILL HAVE TO PAY...
SO IF U WISH TO STAY AT HERE PLS NEGOTIATE BEFORE U RENT..
Crystal was extremely helpful, met us at the apartment when we arrived, and helped us with travel and information about Hong Kong. Our 8-month old had a great time, and Crystal was always a phone call away for anything that we needed. She even offered to arrange for transportation back to the airport when we left.
The location was great, and the room, while small, was clean, well-cared for, and less than a 5 minute walk from Times Square. Highly recommended!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
