7 Affordable Airbnb Apartments in Hong Kong for Budget Travellers

Live like a local in Hong Kong when you opt for these budget-friendly apartments in Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok or Causeway Bay.

If you’re heading to Hong Kong soon, it’s definitely worth your time to peruse through the list of Airbnb apartments available in the city. This way, you could potentially land a value-for-money place to stay, one that may even have facilities that are more generous than those offered by hotels. To help you out in this aspect, we’ve scouted some of the best Airbnb apartments in three of the most popular areas: Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok, both in Kowloon, and Causeway Bay, which lies across Victoria Harbour, on Hong Kong Island.

Do note that due to the high population density and skyrocketing cost of housing, accommodation in Hong Kong is typically on the small side. So if you’re on a budget, you can hardly escape living in cramped quarters during your stay in Hong Kong. But embrace it – that’s just part of the local experience! Without further ado, here are some of the most affordable and highly-rated Airbnb apartments in Hong Kong:

Tsim Sha Tsui

1. The studio just in front of the MTR Station

Listing name: ❤❤ Peaceful Apartment ❤❤ Tsim Sha Tsui
Location: Tsim Sha Tsui
Max. no. of guests: 2
No. of bedrooms: Studio

This cute little studio apartment along the famous Nathan Road has touches of greenery to add life to the modern space. While it’s a studio, the space is compartmentalised into a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom. It also comes with air-conditioning, a fridge, a washing machine, and fast WiFi. This is one of the units of the Mirador Mansion and it’s located on the tenth floor. Staying here will put you just minutes away from the Avenue of Stars, the Science Museum, malls like Miramar, Miramall and The One, as well as Knutsford Terrace where pubs and bars are aplenty. Getting to other parts of Hong Kong is convenient too as there’s an entrance to Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Station just outside the building.

2. The micro-living space for two

Listing name: ❤️Cute & Cozy Studio in Tsim Sha Tsui near MTR❤️
Location: Tsim Sha Tsui
Max. no. of guests: 2
No. of bedrooms: Studio

Another budget-friendly choice right in the middle of Tsim Sha Tsui, this studio apartment is ideal for solo travellers or couples. It’s small to the extent that huge suitcases will fill up the space, but it’s also sparkling clean, tidy and homely. There’s also no lack of places to shop and eat from the moment you exit the building. Previous guests have complimented the host of the apartment, Vicky, for her quick responses and help with information. Do note that this apartment does not have a kitchen so it’s not suitable for those who are hoping to cook their own meals. It does, however, have a microwave, kettle and mini-fridge.

Mong Kok

3. The one-bedroom apartment with a pretty balcony

Listing name: 1BR for 2ppl 3mins to MongKok MTR
Location: Mong Kok
Max. no. of guests: 2
No. of bedrooms: 1

While it doesn’t look like much from the pictures, this apartment is highly rated due to other selling points: its convenient location, the nicely-decorated balcony, and of course, the price tag! The apartment is located in a busy area but it’s nice and quiet since it’s tucked right at the end of the building. Places that are easily accessible from the apartment are Mong Kok MTR Station, Ladies Market, Sneakers (Fa Yuen) Street and Argyle Centre. While the apartment may just be a place to retreat to for the night, light cooking is also possible here.

4. The place for a group of four friends

Listing name: NEW Cozy APT 4 mins to Mong Kok MTR
Location: Mong Kok
Max. no. of guests: 4
No. of bedrooms: 1

If you’re travelling in a group of friends (up to four), it’s possible to squeeze into this apartment and split the cost. There’s a double bed plus a sofa that can be converted into a sleeping space. The apartment comes equipped with a tiny kitchen that has an electric stove, a kettle, a fridge and a microwave. What's more, basic freebies like shower cream, shampoo and towels are also provided. The location is great as well, in close proximity to the MTR station as well as a bus stop with a direct bus to the airport.

5. The bright and spacious flat with three bedrooms

Listing name: 3BR king beds very well located in Mong Kok
Location: Mong Kok
Max. no. of guests: 8
No. of bedrooms: 1

This tastefully furnished three-bedroom flat is spacious by Hong Kong standards. Two of the bedrooms have king-sized beds, the other one has a double bed, and the common room has a sofa bed. Altogether, eight people can share this home during their trip. As with the other apartments in the Mong Kok area, shopping and dining options are mere steps away! Among others, you’ll find streetside stalls selling fried seafood, fruits and veggies. Do bear in mind that this apartment is on the fourth floor of a building with no lift, so those with heavy luggage might struggle a bit.

Causeway Bay

6. The shoebox apartment with a fantastic location

Listing name: Causeway Bay Nice Studio nearby MTR
Location: Causeway Bay
Max. no. of guests: 2
No. of bedrooms: 1

Adding on to the collection of small-and-functional studio apartments is this listing in Causeway Bay. Almost within an arm’s length of each other are the comfy bed, TV, closet, kitchen sink, electric stove and microwave. So yes, not a place for the claustrophobic! But step out of the apartment building and you won’t be far from supermarkets, shopping centres, restaurants, pubs, and convenience stores like 7-Eleven and Circle K. Best of all, it’s close to various transportation options like the MTR, buses or taxis, and Times Square is just a five-minute walk away!

7. The two-bedroom apartment with an urban view

Listing name: 1 Cozy Center Best Location 3 REAL BED 6ppl CWB
Location: Causeway Bay
Max. no. of guests: 6
No. of bedrooms: 2

Near Times Square, Hysan Place and Sogo is this two-bedroom apartment along Hennessy Road. It can accommodate up to six persons if you don’t mind the crowd; otherwise, four guests will fit nicely. The typical freebies like towels and toiletries are included, and you might also appreciate the hair dryer, iron and washing machine with detergent. The apartment is a great base to reach the southern beaches in Shek O and Stanley.  It’s also within walking distance to the Wan Chai Pier which has ferries to Kowloon. On top of that, with plenty of buses in front of the apartment, you can even get to Mong Kok in less than 15 minutes!

With this list, we hope that you’ve come closer to finding an agreeable place to stay in Hong Kong without busting your budget. That money saved is surely better spent on sampling local food anyway.
