My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and possibly business travelers.

Hi there, welcome to Hong Kong! I am an avid backpacker who divides my time between tattooing, photography, playing music, traveling and other creative endeavours. Having crisscrossed the globe over the last twenty years (and still doing so... even with my 5 year old and 3 year old who have already been to ten countries!), my goal is to provide in Hong Kong the same culturally enriching experience that I've always had staying in backpacker inns and homestays in different pockets of the world.
I have been proudly hosting Airbnb users since Nov 2011 (but took a break over the last couple of years), and it's proved to be a most enriching experience both for myself and my guests! In that time, my accommodations have been featured in a number of wonderful publications, including Lonely Planet Hong Kong, travel section of New York Magazine, Travel & Leisure, WSJ, as well as a handful of hipster blogs.
The countries I've had the pleasure of experiencing thus far: Australia, Belgium, Cambodia, Canada, China, Denmark, England, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, S, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Taiwan, USA, Vietnam, and Wales.
I believe that in addition to providing you with a clean and safe environment to rest and spend the night in, I want to ensure that your stay in Hong Kong equates to a genuine local experience that exists beyond the pages of guidebooks and tourist maps. Whilst I don't dissuade my guests from visiting the standard tourist sights of HK, I believe this city has so much more to offer.
My focus is on supporting traditional local shops and businesses, to highlight to you aspects of Hong Kong that are slowly disappearing or sadly neglected. Thanks to the ideal location of my building, i.e. in a Chinese low income working class area, there are countless places of this nature that I can point you to.
I myself love to explore this city I call 'home'. As a result of this passion, I too am continuously discovering hidden gems that I would gladly share with you, and even bring you to.
Although I have day jobs and a family to run, I live just a couple of blocks away, so my goal is to be available whenever possible to make your stay a comfortable and personal one. It's been a couple of years since I last hosted, so things might be a little rusty, but I am committed to creating a memorable stay for you in my 'hometown'.
