BU 2017-18 (Yuk Shing Building,Mong Kok)

Whenever my fellow students and I talked about our accommodation, I always brag about my place, Yuk Shing Building, because it has very high value for money! Transportation: It takes just only three minutes walk to Mongkok MTR station, and it is easy for us to go to school; with the shuttle bus just around Metropark Hotel Kowloon and Sai Yee Street, it is easy to travel back to Shenzhen directly without hassle!

Location: Langham Place is just around the corner, so it is very convenient no matter if you are buying something for yourself or for others; daily shopping also made easy with the wet market downstairs and supermarket just a few steps away; there is even a post office just around for parcel collection.

Room space: I am living in standard double which is the smallest room types with bunk bed, yet there is sufficient space for two people walking around the room.
Furniture and appliances: Every one got a desk, a wardrobe and a bookshelf, and there is even a storage drawers by the bed; unfortunately there is some minor flaws for my desk, I hope that Contented Living would make a better selection for the desks in the future; there are microwave, washing machine and fridge inside the kitchen, so you just have to bring your rice cooker and you are good to go!

Service: Staff are very nice, and they will sort things out for you attentively whenever you make your request by calls! Appreciate it!

With such a nice condition, there is still a discount for two persons joining together, what a deal! It almost sounds like I am a salesperson, anyway, I'm really satisfied!
