I've seen two bed apartments in Jordan area for $8000 fairly spacious. $4K per person.
Granted that means no lift for that price and a 'Reflexology ' clinic in the building.

EDIT - one point I would stress - if you ignore places that have no MTR you are doing yourself a disservice. The bus service in Hong Kong is incredibly good, fast, efficient and very regular. There are some routes where it is faster to take a bus than the MTR (Kwai Hing to Central, as it happens, is one of these).
So if you are really set on Shueng Wan - take a look at the 930 timetable. It will be a much more comfortable journey than the MTR. It's 15 mins on that bus from Macau Ferry bus stop to Metroplaza in Kwai Fong (one stop from Kwai Hing).

I got a very tiny apartment in North Point, just 5-6 minutes to MTR station, standing shower and small kitchen, brand new air-conditioner but not furnished, good for one person, asking for 8.5K, any interest?
forget the MTR, you will use buses in this case (and since you go in reverse, ie HK->Kowloon at peak hours you wont have traffic issues).
you are 29 and single as I understand, you don't want to be living in Sham Tseng, or gold Coast or Tseun Wan.
You want HK the big way: ie Party, brunches. BBQ on roof tops, flrit with the girls in LKF, beaches on weekend etc etc.
Sham Tseng etc etc are great for a family, not a 29 years old dude who clearly want some nightlife
So I've been living in Hk for two weeks now, staying in Tuen Mun with relatives and it's bugging me. It's taken my about 1.5 hrs to get to Wanchai by bus on the weekends, and it's put me off meeting friends for drinks in Central because I had to factor in travel time.
I have decided I need to stay in Kowloon, with places that have short commutes across the harbour to Central. So having said that, I think either Mei Foo or Olympic are good options.
Do you guys know the best way to start looking at available places (shared or not?). I have tried to look on multiple websites (28hse, gohome.com.hk, easyroommate) and not really finding anything in my price range (6K-8K).
You might want to improve your bus strategy by catching better buses - it takes me 45 minutes from Wan Chai to Gold Coast on a red minibus (Yuen Long bus) which runs 24 hours. At least this might improve your social life while finding somewhere else to live LOL.
Forget the websites, start hitting the streets! Go to the small estate agencies in the areas you are interested in. They will often have the lower-end properties that the big boys won't bother with.
