“Good base to explore the city from a self service apartment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

This was more of a self-service apartment than anything, with a large bedroom with desk, TV, ensuite and a small kitchen area with kettle and hotplate. The kitchen came in very useful during our week long stay in Hong Kong because we could make our own breakfast, lunch and dinners and I think saved some time and money. The apartments are in a good location; a ten minute walk to 2 different MTR stations making it quick and easy to travel to the main sights and the airport. They might not have offered the same tourist services as other places in the city because they seemed to be aimed for long term residents. Although more expensive than other budget accommodation in Hong Kong I think it was worth it because we had a lot of space.

I am doing a Masters programme in a university in Hong Kong and i needed to rent a house to stay. Before i did that, i checked online and based on the photos, price, and location, i decided to book 1 month stay at Yesinspace while i search for my own apartment.
It was really a GOOD EXPERIENCE staying there. The rooms are exactly like the photos they posted, and the location is great!!10min walk from Mongkok MTR, and 5 min walk to Olympic MTR, and there are buses right downstairs to take you to Mongkok East MTR too!!! food, shopping, everything you name it, are right around the corner...
The staff there, Sam, Yvonne, and all the maintenence, and housekeeping, including the guard downstairs, are great, helpful, and friendly people. Ask any questions, and they will try their best to answer you....They can do your laundry for you at a good price too!! price includes washing, drying, fold, iron, and send back to your room the next day.
When i checked out yesterday n move to my new apartment, i felt kind sad, and know my memories of my stay in Hong Kong will always include Yesinspace.
Thanks alot, Sam, Yvonne, and everyone working there.

I had already stayed in a few budget places in Hong Kong, so I was eager to try Yesinspace, even though it was more expensive.

Basically Yesinspace is meant for long-term housing and they aren't equipped to handle hotel and hostel customers or provide the basic services that they require.

The rooms are cute, fully Ikea, but are beginning to show wear already. My desk had 4 holes in it, the sink was spraying out water underneath and the toilet didn't flush properly. You can tell that everything is equipped as inexpensively as possible.

I saw on one of the other booking site's amenities page that they have a guest kitchen, a washer and dryer for guest use and a swimming pool. They have none of these things. Some of the rooms have a hotplate and kettle, but not all of them do. There is no guest kitchen. There is no swimming pool, they are referring to a public swimming pool down the street. There is no washer and dryer for guest use--they charge $50 which is more than twice as much as other guest houses and more than twice as much as the laundry places downstairs.

Ensuite rooms come with no towels. You can rent a towel from them for $20, it's an Ikea towel that costs $13 new. They do not clean the rooms between the time you check in and check out, even if you stay for more than a week.

Some of the staff are nice, like the older gentleman, but others are not. One young man with glasses was incredibly rude, he would just lie and say anything to get me go away so he could go back to listening to his (bad) music. But then when the manager was in the room all of a sudden he was friendly and smiling--it was really weird.

When my total bill came to $716.40, they rounded it up to $117. But when I had paid a deposit of $119.40 they rounded it down to $119. Yes, this is not much money, but to me it implies a fundamental lack of respect for the customer and greed. The $0.80 they gained from doing this isn't worth alienating me as a customer.

When I posted a negative review on the site I booked my stay on, the owner used my booking information to angrily contact me. What is strange is that he confirmed all of the things I said--he told me that the towels only cost him $13 and that laundry only costs $17-30 in the area. He's charging twice that--so I'm not sure why he was so upset that I said he charged too much!

The Mong Kok area is a great place to stay, but there are dozens of other guest houses near by. I'd go to one of them first, because most of them are cheaper and friendlier.

We stayed here over Christmas and were impressed with the amenties for the price we paid. The room was very clean, smartly using IKEA furnishings which specialize in fitting in lots of stuff in a small space. The room and bathroom were small, but space is at a premium in Hong Kong, and it was sufficient for 2 people. We had some trouble finding the hotel at first, but by luck the owner walked by us on the street and noticed our map printed from their website, and happily led us to the hotel. The staff was very friendly.

The best part about this hotel is its location. We didn't even seen another white person the entire first day. You really are in the local area, with tons of interesting food stalls and markets nearby, and the huge shopping mall near Mong Kok station, where all the locals shop. We went to Nathan Road and the Tsim Sha Tsui area, and there are so many tourists there, that it's not a very real experience, and you get bombarded with offers of 'custom suits' and 'copy handbags' on every block. Yesinspace was such a quieter and more relaxing place to stay.

Another tip is the Olympic mall that is about 5 minutes from Yesinspace that has an awesome cafe (called Uncle something's...) that serves wonderful Western breakfasts. The fact that they had brown bread was quite the find after eating so much white rice and breads. Highly recommended.

We are a couple of 30-somethings who travel with our laptops. Yesinspace was perfect for our needs.

First, we loved the location. A down to earth working class enclave with lots of restaurants and interesting market streets. Total Kowloon character. Tons of stuff to see, do, eat, and buy within walking distance, but also very close to two different metro lines.

Second, the rooms are small but good. Hard-wire or WiFi Internet. IKEA furnishings. Minibar with kettle and kitchen sink. It's not a kitchenette as they claim, it has no hotplate.

Next time I would pay more for the 1 bedroom, as the standard room is very small and cramped for two people with a lot of stuff. However, ours had an 11th storey view--not a classic one of the skyline but of the soccer field and the surrounding tenement buildings.

Third, the building has a rooftop deck that does have a 360 degree view including New Territory mountains. The lobby has a killer massage chair as well as a library of books you can borrow. Staff is friendly.

A few things to keep in mind: 1. They do not service the rooms except for once per week. 2. They don't provide towels unless you ask, and you might have to pay extra. 3. You must pay in cash up front.
