A Summer's Night at Campus HK

On Friday evening, we were invited to a blogger's party dubbed "A Summer's Night" at Campus HK, Hong Kong's first non-university run shared student accommodation. Located in Tsuen Wan (about 35 mins away from Central), Campus HK is actually situated over a few floors inside a hotel cum serviced apartment called Bay Bridge Hong Kong.

Campus HK offers 48 rooms of 660 sq ft each, capable of accommodating up to four students per room. For backpackers and travellers, they also offer short stay accommodation during the Summer months - and for those who are looking for a comfortable, budget-friendly place to stay, without the need to be directly in the city, then this is a good option.

The rooms are young, retro and fun, with graffiti designs and chalk boards all around, and a sea view in each room. The designer kept the layout and facilities practical - each student has a bunk bed, which houses a neat table and desk below with all the necessary equipment for students (lockable drawers and cupboards, multi-socket USB hub and power outlet etc), as well as having a communal kitchenette, fridge and bar table in the middle to be shared between the roommates. The toilet is cleverly arranged so that one can use the toilet while another is in the shower, which is designed to ease any potential bottlenecks over the bathroom.

With 24 hour wifi, an outdoor pool, gym room, room cleaning twice a week, and soon a restaurant, it's a pretty cool space for students and backpackers. The additional benefit is that the lovely people at Campus HK really try to create a community there, with a large communal space dubbed The Link that comes equipped with a vending machine, sofas to study on, a large TV, xbox and playstation consoles, and an area to just relax and mingle. There is also a blackboard with a calendar listing all the upcoming social events that they organise, including beachside BBQs, a night at the Happy Valley races, and any other messages that the students want to leave each other.

The downside is the distance to Hong Kong island, but this is minimised by the regular complimentary shuttle buses that Campus HK runs to Tsuen Wan station and Tsuen Wan West station.

Rates start from HK$4,000 a month per bed, or you can book out an entire room for four people for HK$15,000 a month. If you'd like a short term stay, beds cost HK$190 each per night, so it's pretty ideal for those looking for budget-friendly accommodation over the Summer.
