Description

The Space

A tiny (150 sf) private apartment located in a walk-up building near Wanchai's wet market (food market). Conveniently located in the heart of Hong Kong within one block of the MTR light rail station and a stone's throw from major bus routes, trams, and taxi services. Everything, and I mean everything, is at your doorstep. Expect convenience and a no-nonsense place to spend the night in Hong Kong. The apartment is a tight fit, but if you're looking for a place to rest during your time here - look no further. Your own door and key - come and go at your own convenience. The apartment includes: - twin size bed (1m x 2m) - AC unit - sofa - toilet (toilet paper provided) - sink (soap and toothpaste provided) - shower (towels, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash provided) - mini fridge - microwave - hair dryer - iron and ironing board - wifi (500mbps connection thru Open Mesh MR1750 dual-band 6-antenna router) Toiletries provided as well. Laundry and food market at the foot of the building. Owner lives nearby and a small cleaning fee is charged for each stay. Come enjoy the Wanchai Pigeon Burrow!

Guest Access

Your own place. No sharing rooms with others. Your own flat in Hong Kong with a bed, couch, and bathroom. Rooftop access for smoking or chilling out. One thing to remember is this is a walk-up building, so you will learn to love the steps - depending on your length of stay.

Interaction with Guests

I will provide self-entry directions to and into the apartment. These will include things such as: - arrival - departure - house notes - food recommendations (see my Airbnb 'Guidebook') - HK market guide - SIM card suggestions - my contact info Occasionally our schedules will align, so I am able to meet you at the apartment. I've noticed most people prefer the self-entry thing. I live nearby and have someone available to help should there be any issues.

The Neighborhood

Wanchai, the very heart of Hong Kong, is home to primarily two things - office buildings and a rather seedy nightlife. The area also boasts easy and direct transportation to almost all areas of Hong Kong SAR. FOOD: Check out my Airbnb Guidebook on the listing. It is also HIGHLY recommended to download 'Open Rice' app for restaurant discovery, locations, and reviews. NIGHTLIFE: Wanchai has a busy nightlife scene. There is always live music going late into the night and plenty of popular clubs and bars. Take a note, however, that Wanchai also has a well-established prostitution scene consisting mostly of Filipino women trying to convince you to enter the more seedy locales. For further nightlife a 5 minute taxi ride will take you to the famed Lan Kwai Fong "LKF" (about 30HKD by taxi, or, for the cheaper route, about 8HKD by tram) and the Central / Soho bar and club scene. Other nightlife areas are: Star Street, Hollywood Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui "TST," Hidden Agenda, Beating Heart, XXX, Sense, Premium. 7-Eleven and Circle K are also a great stop to grab a cheap beer for the walk or just chilling out. Otherwise beer in Hong Kong will range from 35HKD - 100HKD. SHOPPING: Heading in the other direction will take you to Causeway Bay - a shopping mecca. Causeway Bay, or CWB, has the costliest commercial real estate in the world - beating out Fifth Avenue of NYC. This will give you an idea of the possibilities.

Other Things to Note

Living in Hong Kong is quite small for many foreign guests. It is something most of us must get accustomed to. If you have any questions about relative size, etc - please do not hesitate to ask. The bed is 'twin' size (1m x 2m). This will work for couples or people okay with sharing a small bed. The bed is not a 'fill' or 'double'. This is a walk-up building — there is no elevator. I want all my potential guests to be 100% satisfied with their arrangements before booking.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

Much like camping: Please leave the place cleaner than how you found it. 1. Keep the noise level down late at night. 2. Nothing too illegal i.e. no hard drugs or stolen property. 3. Break it; you buy it. 4. Clean up after yourself. 5. Make it into the toilet. 6. Lose the key? Pay for a lock and locksmith ($500hkd). 7. NO SMOKING. There is a roof top 2 floors up you are more than welcome to use. I charge a $1500hkd fee for smoking in the apartment. Some people just do not understand – there is to be ZERO smoking inside the unit. I will follow up with damages. 8. No stealing. Missing items (e.g. hair dryers, towels) will be charged a minimum of $300hkd fee.
