It’s no secret that Hong Kong is one of the world’s least affordable places to live. Renting an apartment is costly enough, and to actually own one – well, that's just a whole other problem. Just talking, no, thinking about rent can give us a headache. But the good news is, since co-living spaces are popping up left and right around town, maybe there’s a way we can solve the problem after all. To keep you in the loop (like we always do), we’ve rounded up some of the best communal living spaces the city has to offer. Scroll down and check out your options! 

RECOMMENDED: Want to have an awesome time in the city without going into the red? We’ve got you covered with a list of the best cheap things to do in Hong Kong. Literally down to your last few dollars and holding out until payday? Don’t worry, there’s a wealth of free things to do in our SAR as well.

The Nate

Property Tsim Sha Tsui

Stylish, hip, and comfy all in one, The Nate is easily a place that you would proudly call home. Conveniently located just a couple of minutes away from the Jordan MTR station, this shared home caters to different needs by offering various types of serviced apartments sized between 125 sq ft to 260 sq ft. Best of all, every room here comes with a private bathroom, a safe and a fridge. (Who says co-living spaces lack privacy?) Under its all-inclusive monthly rent, residents not only have full access to all utilities and communal areas but can also enjoy a whole host of added benefits, such as discounts at gyms and restaurants. Plus, The Nate is one of the few co-living properties in town that offers pet-friendly studios. And for that reason, it needs to be on this list.
