We had a small issue prior to arrival and we wanted to extend our stay from 3 nights to 4 nights. Ken agreed that this was fine and there was availability. When I went to re-book, the price had gone up. I think it's fair to increase the price for the additional night, but not for the 3 nights that are already booked and paid for. Ken said "This is how Hong Kong works and maybe it's a bug in the Air BNB software, but not my problem, nothing I can do about it". Hmm, yes, you could actually give us something of a refund, which is what I would do. Nevertheless, we arrived in HK. The apartment is in a good location. I would say this is the one thing it has going for it. To describe it as big is pretty funny. I guess it's all relative, but this is NOT big. The bed is described as a double. If you are used to Western beds, the bed is tiny. We decided after 1 very uncomfortable night where we got no sleep due to the bed size - small double completely against a wall that we wouldn't stay any longer. Other reviews have said the bathroom is small. The 'bathroom' is a toilet, with a shower hose attached to the wall. I had no issues communicating with the host, he was reasonably pleasant and responsive. However, do think twice before you book this. Remember in life, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. I didn't find this at all comfortable and rather than having a bad holiday in Hong Kong, we decided to cut our losses and move to a hotel where we were much more comfortable. An expensive lesson learned.

My wife & family stayed at Ken's flat for 4 nights in mid September. The flat was excellent for our needs and very clean. Ken was the perfect host and easy to contact.
The flat is a short Tram or Taxi ride from HK central area and all the amenities, including Ferries etc.
I would definitelyrecomend the apartment to anyone visiting Hong Kong.
Many thanks Ken

We enjoyed our stay in HK, thanks to Ken Chang for letting us stay in his apartment. His apartment is so close to the tram station and very close to restaurants, laundry shop and convenient stores as well as currency exchange outlet. I recommend his place to anyone who travels a lot and wants to have somewhere to lay his head during the night. The rooms are big enough fully air-conditioned and clean sheets. Thanks Ken, we would love to come back and stay in your apartment in the near future. Cheers!
We stayed for three (email hidden). Since our luggage was misplaced by Thai Airways, we were very disoriented for the first night. But after our luggage was delivered to us on the second night, we could feel normal.
Our overall stay was pleasant. The place was as described, clean and homely, though the bathroom was a bit small. We were a family with small kids, and the place was convenient in terms of eateries, stores to buy chips, biscuits etc, though the MTR was a bit far for getting to with small kids.
The 2 rooms are spacious and the flat is clean.Tram and bus stops are located just opposite the apartment. Tram ride takes about 5mins to HongKong-Macau ferry terminal, s flat.
Easy to get to, not a problem with the stay although bathroom is slightly smaller than we thought! Ken is polite and helpful.
Overall was okay.
Lovely family. Ken was travelling with his family on this trip as was a pleasure to have them stay. Very kind and well mannered.
Would highly recommend Ken to stay in your property.
Ken was a great guest, clean, nice and tidy. Very understanding and easy going. Easily recommendable to other hosts and look forward to hosting him again on his future trips to Hong Kong.
Really nice Tenant with excellent communication. The flat was perfectly clean at the end. For sure I recommend Ken.
