This guesthouse is totally awesome for its location. It really easy to reach this guesthouse since the location is exactly on the exit 1 of hongdae station. The staff is also really friendly to the guest. I took the mixed room one and found out that tge space of the room is really big compare to other. I surely will vome to this guesthouse again for my trip in seoul. :)

On the first day, we had a problem with toilet. Staff changed the room for us. Then we found out that there was no hair dryer, we requested to staff. They promised to bring it to the room but they didn't. We had to request again on the next day since we came back in the late night. Other services are fine. Staff were helpful.

Mary was very helpful.I stayed here for only one night this time but she offered great help to me. First, she helped me with my phone card. She called CS for me because I couldn't understand Korean. Second, I got a fracture due to slip and fall and she recommended me to a good hospital and let me have a translation in Korean so that I could pass it to the doctor and taxi driver. She also treated the guests pizza and we had a nice chat. Also, the location of the hostel is excellent as always.

Lovely place to stay for my first time in S.Korea. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Located right above the subway, so travelling was made easy. One of the staff members took me to a Korean BBQ place. That was awesome (and amazingly tasty) Thanks for all your help! :)

Thank you for the review.~ I did not know you could not see the details of different location on customer aspect. I will ask hostelworld to see the details on booking page. Sorry about that. And I was happy also to have solved it ~! Thank you very much. ! Mary
