My favorite place to stay in Seoul. They helped me when I needneeded it most! Good people and a great time!


Everything was clean and it was close to all the happening places! The beds were comfortable had a curtain for privacy. The staff were very friendly and helpful with booking activities. I really enjoyed the CooKorean class they had the pamphlet for and I would definitely recommend this hostel and the cooking class.


A very homely and cozy hostel close to Hongdae, the busy university district of Seoul, full of street performances, all the bars and cafés you could ever dream of, and, of course, tonnes of chic clothing boutiques. The hostel is cleverly located in a very quiet neighbourhood despite being such a short walk from all of the tempting madness of Hongdae. The staff are very friendly, and the two owners, who are there at some point every day are very welcoming and can also collectively speak 3 languag


A great hostel! Very clean with a very nice staff. Only a ten minute walk to the downtown area!

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.
