Arrived in Hong Kong, searching for room/flatshare!
Posted September 29th, 2012 - 9:16 am by from Manchester, England (Permalink)
Hi Everyone,

I have just arrived in Hong Kong two days ago and am looking for a room in a flatshare or someone who wants to search for a flat together.

I have about two weeks until I need to move out of my friends apartment.
I am preferably looking for somewhere close to HKU in Sai Ying Pun, Sheung Wan or Kennedy Town but also happy for any offers anywhere else!
Just to see what a single studio would be like I looked with an agent today, which confirmed that I would prefer to flatshare with communal space and people to talk to after work. I'm beginning a job at HKU on Wednesday in the Architecture department and am able to move in as soon as possible.

Also, I don't know anyone in Hong Kong and this is my first time here so any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! Or if anyone wants to meet for a coffee I would love to meet and make some friends! I'm staying in Sai Ying Pun at the moment and my number is 96295465, if anyone wants to get in touch just send me a text or call me!

Hope to hear from you soon,

Hi Ashley,

Welcome to Hong Kong. I currently live in a studio in Kennedy Town and am thinking about finding a communal living space starting late October or November.

Are you looking for a place for only six months? I think most landlords sign for a year.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Ashley,

I am moving from Spain to Hong Kong on Oct 30th, and hope to find a nice communal shared space from November on. I am quite easy-going, and have lived in many different types of shared living spaces including co-ops. Would be great if we could all (all interested) find a reasonably priced space together. I have a budget of 3000hk$/mo for my share. All locations listed are fine by me :)

If you want we can skype about this until I arrive....
