“very good value for HK”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

I do not know why this Japanese review is of Solo, but it is certainly not of the YWCA Lodge in Begonia Road, Yau Yat Chuen, Kowloon Tong, where I am staying at the moment. I have been here only a day and may change my mind, but it strikes me as extremely good value for people on long stays in Hong Kong. I have been coming to Hong Kong for 43 years, and lived on Lantau Island for two of these years, and the Lodge strikes me as of exceptionally good value. It is in an extremely quiet, clean area and well maintained and very efficient. At HK $10,000 a month for a studio, it is not cheap by world standards, but it is by HK standards. About ten minutes' walk are restaurants and shops and the MTR or subway station is about fifteen minutes away. The building dates from the 1990s, I think, and it is pleasantly furnished and staffed, although the capacity to deal in English seems to be very limited.
