The Space

Awesome location in the middle of the city, about half way between Admiralty MTR and Wan Chai MTR. Easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the bars of Wan Chai. This apartment is on a quiet side street so that you escape the noise of the city even though you are just steps away for the hustle and bustle. The building is an older style walk-up building with the apartment being on the 3rd floor. With the stairs outside of the building, expect to walk up 4 flights of stairs. Trust me, it's manageable. There are art galleries and schools on the small street, which adds a little more flair to the charming location.

The apartment itself is a very large studio of around 700 square feet. Curtains separate the sleeping area and a sleeper sofa, allowing for a couch surfer to sleep on the double sleeper.. The dining table easily seats 4 people. You can make use of the kitchen, which has an induction cooker, counter top oven (I cooked a 14lb turkey in it!), dishes, cutlery, spices...basically all the necessities to cook except for a microwave. There is also a washing machine and a dehumidifier that has a clothes drying function. You can do your own laundry (detergent and fabric softener provided) as well as iron the clothes afterwards.

The bathroom is a decent size and features a full shower that can easily accommodate taller people (not always the case here). Clean towels and washcloths are provided.

The unit also features a 42" LED TV, basic cable, a desktop computer with high speed internet and wifi, a sound system, DVD player, and PS3.

I am interested in sharing my home for short term (website hidden) with males who are visiting Hong Kong.

  • Jody was the perfect host for my time in Hong Kong. Great spacious place, very clean, and a real solid guy - very easy going and friendly. Definitely would stay with him again in HK.

  • Jody is a cool guy and a good host. His location is ideal and there are plenty of shops of all kinds nearby. I would definitely stay here again if I came back to HK.

  • I very much enjoyed my stay with Jody... He was a great host, the place was exceedingly clean, well-located, and as described in the offer. I would recommend Jody's place to any traveler passing through HK.

  • Jody is a great guy. He met me at the airport express Hong Kong station and then we took a cab to his place. His place is beautiful—big studio apartment on a quite street. I should repeat the place is a studio, so everything—bed, couch, kitchen, etc.—is open and visible. There is a faint smell of smoke in the apartment because Jody smokes out of the bathroom window.

    I only stayed one night, but it was good experience all around.

  • The apartment is very cozy and comfortable as well as the couch :) It had everything I needed. Location is very good in my opinion.

    It is approx. the same distance from Admirality and Wan Chai stations which is also very convenient because I used their lines almost all the time to get to the interesting places in HK which are many. A supermarket and lots of good and inexpensive restaurants are nearby.

    Jody is a very positive and helpful person. I am grateful for all the help, good advice, and interesting chats. The best you can do to start getting to know the city is the right person living there. And Jody is that kind of a guy :).

  • Jody was an amiable host who made time to meet me and get me settled in during the work day which is hard in HK.

    We had some nice chats after drinks and it was a great time.

  • Jody was a great host who went out of his way to make my business trip to Hong Kong a smooth one. His apartment is clean and tidy and his couch is super comfy. Also recommended places to go in Hong Kong. Good conversation over dinner and drinks too. I highly recommend his place if you are traveling to Hong Kong.

  • Jody was a fantastic host, and his apartment was in the most convenient location you can find on HK island. Everything you need is around you. The metro is less than a 5 minute walk, on your way there, you'll walk past numerous side alley bars and eateries that you wouldn't have known existed unless you lived in the neighborhood. Jody gave me pointers on where to go and what to do that, had I been left to my own devices (and I'm pretty crafty), I would not have discovered on my own. Certainly planning on staying there again, if Jody is able to accommodate me.
