That's wonderful! I look forward to having you in town
The Shenzhen hacker district is located in Futian a few blocks from the Hua Cheng Bei electronics markets. If you want to be in this area (and you probably do), I have a few places for you. Shekou is a very Westernized. It's where all the foreign middle management and banking people live with their families. If you're looking for more authentic Chinese and hacker experiences, I recommend somewhere in the hacker district.
Jie En Apartments
The Mid Century Serviced Apartments are located in the Jie En building. We just call it Jie En. This place is suitable for stays of one or more weeks. It is the default location in Shenzhen for hackers who know what they're doing. I live here and there's usually a bunch of people from Hax around. The hackers who regularly come to Shenzhen usually stay here.
Don't bother trying to make a reservation. They never answer emails and don't take reservations. Sometime they're fully booked, but they usually have a room available. Sometime people will stay at another hotel for a few nights while they wait for a room to become available.
Affectionately know as "Shitty Inn." This is the default shot stay hotel.
I haven't seen the rooms here, but people keep telling me it's nicer than Shitty Inn.
Book your first night or two at Chicago Suites or Shitty Inn. Then go to the Jie En Apartments office and try to book a room there.
