It’s all good and well parading dream homes that touch the six-digit mark, they’re fun to look at and we all need to have aspirations. But they’re not really realistic for the majority of us are they? On that depressing note, here’s some properties on the market for under 10,000 dollars a month.
68A Macdonnell Road, Mid-Levels
- $5,200 per month
- 100 sq ft
- It has a bed, toilet, shower, sink, and a lamp, pretty good for 5K in Mid-Levels
An affordable apartment in Mid-Levels you say? What is this sorcery?! In fact, it’s not only affordable, it’s stupidly cheap, we don’t really understand it but there you go. Don’t get us wrong, it’s not gonna be featured on Cribs anytime soon (is that program still a thing?), but all the nuts and bolts are there to make this an acceptable domicile for the quoted price.
52 Hillwood Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
- $8,800 per month
- 210 sq ft
- It’s got a washing machine, and curtains!
Okay, so you’re not likely to be hosting many dinner parties, but breaking the 200 sq ft mark at this price in TST is no mean feat. And, at the very least, if you have company over, you can take a p**s in private which is a bit of win.
319 – 319A Lai Chi Kok Road, Sham Shui Po
- $8,000 per month
- 160 sq ft
- Newly decorated, it has an outside bit!
Okay, so Sham Shui Po’s a bit “earthier” than other areas let’s say (I know, I live there myself), but what’s great about it is that you’re not only saving money on rent, but also on basics such as food and laundry which, if you know where to look, comes in much, much cheaper than the rest of the city.

Johnston Road, Wan Chai
- $9,500 per month
- 180 sq ft
- Newly decorated, it’s got one of those silver toilet paper covers
Newly renovated, on Johnston road, and under 10 grand. That’s not bad. As you can see from the pictures, it’s actually quite lovely given the usual dingy nature of Wan Chai flats, and it’s not micro-sized – there’s definite room for activities.
