1) MESSAGE ME FIRST WITH YOUR DATES AND WAIT FOR ME TO GET BACK TO YOU. DO NOT SEND ME A BOOKING REQUEST RIGHT AWAY OR WITHOUT HEARING BACK FROM ME. Reasons being, a) I might have some questions or things to clarify before I approve a request. b) booking requests have an expiry period after which the host is charged a fee. SO DO NOT SEND ME AN ACTUAL BOOKING REQUEST WITHOUT WRITING TO ME FIRST! THANKYOU.



Firstly, the picture you see is the real view from the living room and bedroom windows on a clear, dry day... a rare commodity in HK. What you see is what you get. No exaggeration here as long as you are lucky and the weather is great,which is not often! it would be important to note, HK suffers from smog almost all year round and a clear day is hard to come by.

HUNGHOM is in the heart of Kowloon. It is one of the oldest areas of Hongkong giving you the very authentic Kowloon experience. Since the closing of the old airport decades ago the area is undergoing a re- development process.
It is a 10 mins bus ride to Tsim Sha Tsui /Jordan. 18 mins to Central.
The new "Ma Tau Wei" MTR (underground) station next to my place, will open sometime in 2016, till then HUNGHOM station is a 5 min bus ride away and JORDAN station a 10 min ride away.
Tons of buses to go anywhere. Several all night buses serving the area.
Two airport buses come to my place, and one overnight airport bus as well in case your flight is very early in the morning.
Kowloon city ferry a 8 mins walk, takes you to HK island in 15 mins, and just outside the ferry terminal is the MTR station (North Point).

Please ask me more about how to get around when you are here depending on what your itinerary will be and i will advise you on the best means of transportation to get to where you need to be which will save time and energy on your part. i am more than happy to help. (:

Shopping, restaurants and supermarkets right by the building.
Sung Kit street, one of the most popular food streets in HK is right opposite my building.
Now a brief synopsis of my place:

I have the small spare bedroom for rent in my 2 bedroom apt. The building is about 25 years old, so don't expect a brand new renovated space! But if you are looking for a quiet peaceful place right in the heart of the city away from all the bustle and noise at the end of a long day, then this is it.

FOR ONE PERSON ONLY. (Kindly do not waste my time or yours by asking for 2 people accommodation, there is a reason why I have mentioned "one person only". I make no exceptions to that.)

What is provided:
~1) High speed Internet connection (WIRELESS).
~2) International Adaptor that works with pretty much all devices.
~3) I also provide shampoo, conditioner, bath and shower gel, as well as hair dryer, iron, towel, and house slippers if you should need them. So it's ideal for people who like to travel light.
If you have oversize/excessive luggage pls inform me beforehand and bear in mind there is very little extra space. So be prepared for that.
~4) I provide tea and coffee and you are welcome to warm up your own food or drinks in the microwave at any time. But that's about where it ends. Strictly no cooking.
~5) Bathroom is shared as is normal in most HK apts. and I make it as user friendly as possible for guests. I try to keep it clean and tidy at all times.
~6) To give an idea based on the height of a person, lengthwise the bed measures approx 188 cms. from head to toe.

I would like to add here, (a little regretfully), that I do not normally encourage guests to have use of the living and dining area. That is pretty much my zone, sharing that space can get difficult as compared to most other Asian countries like Malaysia or Singapore or India, HK homes are notoriously small not withstanding it's quirky architecture to back it up!

There are various laundromats/dry cleaners around the area, they wash clothes in bulk for cheap. No washing in the house. Washing and drying clothes in HK can be a major challenge at times due to lack of adequate space. So you must make use of the laundries downstairs.

Building has 24 hr security.
There are no time restrictions. You can come and go as you please.

MIN stay: 3 nights
( Pls do not ask for one night, it is exactly what it says).

MAX stay: APPROX 2 weeks
Check-in time: 12.30 PM.
(pls make note the check-in time is listed as 12 noon on the main body of the listing but my check-in time is 12.30 and not 12. the system does not allow to choose the half hour mark hence the discrepancy.)

I have rented out to many visitors over time so i am not a first time renter, and i've been a host on airbnb for approx two years.

I like a guest who would do his or her own thing, as I am mostly occupied with mine. Even though I enjoy interacting with people, I do like my privacy and would respect the same with my guest. As a rule I don't have the time to chat or hang out, even when I am at home I am mostly busy with stuff and like my space, but I will gladly be of assistance if you need it and will be more than happy to answer all your questions and help out with whatever you might need.

Mutual respect, trust and considerate behavior is very important and goes a long way, so when you are at my place I would def appreciate that.

And lastly....IMPORTANT, ( from experience ) : If you do actually stay at my place, please communicate freely if there are any questions or concerns you may have. Do not keep it to yourself. Every place is different and every guest's requirements, likes and dislikes vary. So please keep lines of communication open so both sides feel comfortable during the period of the stay. Occasionally communication becomes an issue due to language problem, and some guests avoid conversation because of that, but i am more than ready to make the effort if you are! It just makes your stay, and getting around and getting to know the area you are staying in, that much easier.

Looking forward to pleasant experiences.

Other Things to Note

My check out is 12 noon. I can extend that to 1pm at the most, but that timing has to be flexible. It depends on my next guest reservation and my schedule.
FYI: In HK we have city check-in. 48 hours before your flight is scheduled for departure you can check in your luggage in the city at Kowloon station or Hongkong station where airlines have their counters. so if you are checking out at 12noon for eg and your flight is in the night, you can check in your luggage at either one of the above mentioned stations and then carry on with the remainder of your day.
