I have a budget of HKD 5K per month and am looking for an apartment in HK (I will work in Central). Right now, I'm renting a room for 4K, but I feel overcharged and would like my own place or at least to rent as a roomate not as a border. I know it is possible to get a 套房 room for as low as 2K on Hong Kong Island, but I'm looking for both affordability and VALUE. I have seen a lot of apartments so far (most above 5k) and I am sure most of the older ones are infested (my biggest concern to be honest-more important than size, convenience). Any ideas for the best areas to look for cheap apartments with a minimum number of roaches (YES, I know they are EVERYWHERE)?
Thanks a lot
