Keen to try out a new way of renting? These are the best co-living spaces in Hong Kong.
We’ve all heard of co-working, but new to the Hong Kong scene is co-living. Adopting the same principles as the popular shared workspaces, co-living aims to offer young professionals an alternative to traditional renting. Not only do the spaces strive to bring a more affordable option to our city’s pricey property market, but co-living is also a much more flexible way of living that’s perfect for our transient city. Whether you’re in Hong Kong long or short term, co-living promises a community feel. Many of the options available have stylish open-plan shared spaces, complete with all the amenities you’ll need to feel at home and well looked after. Keen to try it out? We’ve rounded up the best co-living spaces in Hong Kong.
