I am an American who has lived in Hong Kong for over 6 years.
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.
Jody's place has all you need to make you stay in HK comfortable. The location is great, only 10 minutes walking from Wan Chai MTR, 20 min total to Kowloon. The apartment was clean and had all the facilities we expected. I would definitely recommend this place to stay.
Quiet appartment, no street noise. Big bed, and the area for bathroom and kitchen is ok as well. Everything clean upon arrival. Reliable host
great guy and stay was good... would stay again in a heart beat
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.
Jody is a great guy. I needed to stay for one night because I was travelling around Asia and he even came to meet me in Hong Kong station. From there we took a taxi. He is also really flexible, laid back guy. The flat is really cozy, in the center, even though I slept only one night there, I enjoyed it.
With other words, I definitely recommend to contact him if you are in need of a place for a few days
Jody was a great host. He was pleasant and easy going. Went out of his way constantly (i.e. offered to get a taxi for me from HK station where the Airport Express train arrives to Wan Chai). The flat and Wan Chai are centrally located, minutes away from Admiralty and Causeway Bay and not far from Central. Wan Chai itself is an interesting area with a lot of restaurants and a high end shopping mall (Pacific Place). Flat is clean. Good shower. Jody is more than accommodating, offering good suggestions for tourist attractions in the area (e.g. Victoria Peak). The couch is also comfortable. I’m a light sleeper, and slept like a baby.
