As you know, Hong Kong is a city dear to travelers. Budget and at the same time comfortable hotel is quite difficult to find here. Best value options for a stay in Hong Kong – a bed in common room in a hostel or quite ascetic and cramped room in hotel, but this is mostly suitable for backpackers, young and careless. If you are traveling with a family or company from several people it is more profitable to watch good housing with amenities Airbnb.

There are many offers of accommodation in Hong Kong on the Airbnb website, so that you can always find for yourself something suitable in any area. However, it makes sense for tourists to settle in the very center cities on the island of Hong Kong, in the northern part (Sheung Wan metro, Central, Admiralty and Wan Chai), from where close to the main attractions. Another option is to settle on Kowloon Peninsula, near the metro Tsim Tsa Shui and its neighbors. On Kowloon can be found quieter and older areas of Hong Kong and plunge into the daily lives of its inhabitants. Although the area is about Tsim Tsa Shui (Nathan Road street) is a very busy place. By cost, it makes sense to tune in prices from an average of $ 50 per day, but if you are ready to live on the outskirts, you can also find $ 20-30 (I have such options in the collection here).
