I really enjoyed staying at Kimchee Guesthouse the past two weeks. Especially Sam and Charles are extremely nice and very helpful. The rooms are a bit smaller than you would expect from Europe/the US (so don't bring too much luggage ;)) but on the one hand that's the Seoul-standard and on the other hand they are clean as-well as comfortable. The only thing that can get on your nerves are the thin walls. If you have a jetlaged or nocturnal neighbor prepare yourself to barely sleep at night.

Had a late bus coming into Seoul. The place was easy to find and the staff were very welcoming. I mentioned I was cold and the staff at check in had a hot tea in my hands immediately! The price was high and dorm bathroom had hair all over the floor. Despite this it was better than the next place I stayed in Seoul, which was run by a crazy person. Overall I would recommend.
Very close to Gangnam-gu Office Station and lots of combinis and cafes around the area. We visited during winter when it's absolutely freezing outside but the rooms were brilliantly warm - heated floor and heating units. The staff were really good, too. When we arrived quite late into the night Sam got us settled. He also offered to order us food because we hadn't oriented ourselves yet. Staff also ordered us taxis and recommended clubs. Can't fault my stay!
Kimchee Gangnam Guesthouse is very nice, I would definitely stay here another time. The vibe was excellent and the staff is very helpful. I only stayed here for one night, but I wish it was more. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was the bomb and the wifi was very fast.
