    Agent costs, please help!

    What sort of percentage would I pay an agent on a one bedroom apartment that costs between 2500- 6000 HKD.
    Also does anyone know of any apartments close to HK University/ SOHO/ Sheung Wan/ Chung Wan ( you get the idea) that would be in this price range? If you know of any send a PM with the deets my way!

    Agent's fees are normally half a month's rent from each of the landlord and the tenant.

    You aren't going to find one bedroom apartments on HK Island at $2500/month! Use GoHome to get some sort of idea.

    Rooms in guests houses / hostels for a month are not even that cheap. You maybe able to get a 'shared apartment' situatuation starting somewhere at 4000HK.

    If you are attending the University the, check with the housing department at the school.
