Hi there! We're a couple of avid backpackers who divide our time between photography, playing music, traveling and other creative endeavours. Having crisscrossed the globe both together and individually over the last ten years (and still doing so... even with our 18 months baby who already has been to six countries!), we want to provide in Hong Kong the same culturally enriching experience that we've always had staying in backpacker inns and homestays in different pockets of the world.
We have been proudly hosting Airbnb users since Nov 2011 and it's proved to be a most enriching experience both for ourselves and our guests! In that time, we have been featured in a number of wonderful publications, including Lonely Planet Hong Kong, travel section of New York Magazine, Travel & Leisure, WSJ, as well as a handful of hipster blogs.
The countries we've had the pleasure of experiencing thus far: Australia, Belgium, Cambodia, Canada, China, Denmark, England, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Taiwan, USA, Vietnam, and Wales
We believe that in addition to providing you with a clean and safe environment to rest and spend the night in, we want to ensure that your stay in Hong Kong equates to a genuine local experience that exists beyond the pages of guidebooks and tourist maps. Whilst we don't dissuade our guests from visiting the standard tourist sights of HK, we believe this city has so much more to offer.
Our focus is on supporting traditional local shops and businesses, to highlight to you aspects of Hong Kong that are slowly disappearing or sadly neglected. Thanks to the ideal location of our building, i.e. in a Chinese low income working class area, there are countless places of this nature that we can point you to.
We ourselves love to explore this city we call 'home'. As a result of this passion, we too are continuously discovering hidden gems that we would gladly share with you, and even bring you to.
Although we both have day jobs and a family to run, we live just a couple of blocks away, so our goal is to be available whenever possible to make your stay a comfortable and personal one. We're still in the teething stage so please bear with us, but we are working hard to create a memorable stay for you in our 'hometown'.
