Host is helpful but need to bear in mind Louis works late night, he might not be able to always give you a swift reply.
Honestly, we were anxious because this was our first time to use airbnb and we were having a hard time connecting with Louis and airbnb before leaving for the HK trip. I made several emails both to Louis and airbnb and, none, apparently reached Louis. We had a hard time looking for the apartment either. When we reached Victoria Malls, per previous instruction from Louis, I decided to walk around. It was hard considering that very few understood and speak English. Finally we were able to connect to Louis through the help of a lady employee at a store in Victoria Mall. Louis immediately came. He is a nice person afterall and just like us, he was also trying to make a connection to us but was not able to do so. Louis place is clean, comfortable, and very accessible. He was also very helpful. I would not also hesitate to recommend his place to other travellers. What needs to be improved I guess, is the communication. Why could I not get through to Louis even when I was using the airbnb? This would greatly faciltate things. Thank you.
We stayed at the apartment for the month of November and it was great. Upon arriving to hk I contacted Louis and he provided great directions on how to get to his apartment from the airport. He showed us around the apartment and have us some tips on where to eat around the area. There were 5 of us who stayed at the apartment and although it was tight at times there was still enough room, even with two 200+lb guys. The apartment is located in Jordan and is about a 5 to 10 min walk to the Jordan mtr station, the Austin station is closer but you will have to switch trains a couple times depending on where you are going. There are lots of restaurants around the apartment that are open late as well as a 7-11 and a grocery store. There is the elements mall close by and the quickest way to get there is walking through the Austin station and then walking across the pedestrian overpass, this way u bypass all the construction taking place. Overall the stay was excellent and would stay here again if we ever go back with a large group. Thanks again Louis!
First time using airbnb and happy it was a good one! Louis was a great host! He offered great suggestions on places to eat and apt was clean. It was located in near proximity to several train stations. Walking distance to the Temple St Night Market and the Ave of the Stars. Apt had washer along with laundry detergent which came in handy (but note, no dryer but should not be a problem as racks were provided). There were two AC units which kept the room cool and provided relief after coming back from a long day of shopping! Clean blankets were provided. Beds and pillows were decent. wifi had decent signal but had to pay extra (which he clearly stated earlier so had to issues with that). Overall, a great experience!
i really wanna thank Louis for all.... i really felt very very sorry for delaying my check in time as my friends was so engrossed viv shopping in macao b4 heading to his place.... Louis is jz so friendly n helpful n so considerate... i wld definately stay at his place for my next shopping plan in HK.... his place is really clean n tidy n u can b sure u'll hv a gd nite sleep cos its really comfy.... the reason y i chose to stay in an apartment tis trip is bcos i wanna get the feel of living in HK n i Louis' place is really gd... the MTR station is jz right opposite the road, and a 15mins walk southwards, n we r in shopping heaven!!! there's 1 really gd restaurant too serving dim sum, The Sweet Dynasty. though a little pricey but the quality of food is gd... infact around the apartment area, there's a lot of food shops too....
i can oni say, i will go back again next yr fr shopping n i will definately stay in Louis' place.... even my friends agrees viv tis....
