If you’re looking for a temporary living arrangement in Hong Kong with no long-term commitment, then serviced apartments are the way to go. The price tag that comes with them, however, might leave you slurping Cup Noodles for the next month! Bur fear not, because we’ve searched the city high and low to find you the best serviced apartments for under $10k a month to meet your budget.
Mini Studio, Stanley
- From $3,000 per month
- 60 – 120 sq. ft
- HD TV / electric kettle / security access control system / free Wi-Fi / weekly residence cleaning service / coin-operated washing & drying machine
No it’s not a typo, you can rent a serviced apartment in Hong Kong for $3k! Located in Stanley, this may be somewhat inconvenient, but these guys offer free shuttle bus services to the Ocean Park MTR station, making it easier to get around, plus it’s only a five-minute walk to Stanley Market where there are plenty of public transport options to choose from. Prices may vary depending on the size of your studio, but if you’re on a budget, you should definitely check this one out.
Apple Dorm, Sham Shui Po / Sai Wan
- From $3,000
- 50 sq. ft

Yes. 50 square feet! This place is as cheap as it gets, and if you’re not claustrophobic then Apple Dorms might be a perfect fit for you. Mind you, there’s probably not going to be much space to fit a lot of luggage so make sure you pack light!
