Fantastic hosts who were warm and welcoming, and no surprise the staff were too. Well-located in Hongdae and 30/50 mins to Gimpo and Incheon on AREX. Comfortable bed and duvet, with privacy curtains, personal lamp and wall plugs, and one towel to use. Very clean and cosy with a common area on 2 levels, and since the hosts stay in the guesthouse, it's decorated and furnished as if it were their home. Would 100% return to this home away from home and highly recommend you to check it out too.




Very clean and quality hostel – the owners' former Singapore Airlines experience definitely shows through in the attention to detail put into the place. A bit of a walk on the far side of Hongdae, the sleepier side, but only takes about 10 minutes to get to the happening part of the district. Would recommend.


Good place, staff can sometimes be had to reach


Wonderful guesthouse. Very cosy atmosphere. Good place to meet other travellers. Even when it's off season you will still find some travellers around. Scarlet and Anson are fantastic hosts; they really care about their guests and make you comfortable and at home quickly! They can tell you everything about travel in Seoul + Korea and organized my DMZ Full Day tour on my request before arriving. Pleasant dorms with windows (many hostels in Seoul do not have them). Clean. Good beds! Nice breakfast.


I really liked this hostel because it felt homely. The staff were very friendly and the rooms and chillout area were to ourselves and others in the hostel so was good to have drinks there. About a 5-min walk from main city centre which was good. Only downside is that it's a little difficult to find, especially during the evening. Very happy overall


Would stay again in a heart beat!


Really nice and quiet place to stay. Also good breakfast offer (toasts and eggs). The stuff is really great and always ready to help you. Location is not very good, I thout the hostel will be closer, but in this district you can find a lot of great places like shops and cafes.

Stayed there for 1 night, wish I booked more nights. The host was terrific, very helpful and interested in talking to the guests. He also recommended good tourism spots to visit. The atmosphere was great, it was like a family. It's perfect for solo traveler.

The people on the hostel was very helpful, anytime we had a problem the girl on the reception desk stop doing her duties ahelp us to understand how to arrive to a certain place or any kind of question, the place is comfortable, they have all you need in there, like food, tea, hot wáter, it´s a great place to stay if you are planning to go to Seoul.


I loved everything about Bounce Guesthouse. The location in Hongdae is awesome - the local area is very vibrant with shops and restaurants close by. It is very easy to get to/from the airport and around Seoul itself. The guesthouse was always clean and the rooms are very cozy with curtains for each bed so you can have your own space. The hosts are very friendly and are always around for a chat or to provide information for visiting Seoul. I hope to be back!
