Disappointed. The first room was small and super enlighted: no way to sleep after 6 am. The wall is very thin and the hostel is really noisy because of the staff always walking and talking in the main room. The second room had the same noise problem (even worst) but no window that time. The Bathroom was ok, but it do not recommand this hostel.

There were only 2 bathrooms and showers for the entire hostel. Also, the bathrooms and showers were in the same room which made it even more difficult to use in the morning. The rooms were ok. But the walls are so thin, you can hear everything people are saying in the next room even if they were talking quietly.

My stay at Mamas & Papas was simply amazing. Its not only about the excellent location of the hostel or the free breakfast, but also about the staff, Phillips and Nissa are so friendship and warm that they really make you feel at home. Any kind of problem you have, they will help you; if you have any kind of question about taking a bus, getting a place or whatever, they will be there for you. I have nothing to complain, only to say that Im expecting to come back to Seoul to Mamas & Papas ;)

I stayed 11 nights and it was a great experience at Mamas & Papas! The hosts Phillips and Nissa were extremely friendly, offering us recommendations on where to go and occasionally taking us out. Nissa is always helpful and ready for a chat! The hostel was small but it created a nice atmosphere especially when we sit down for breakfast or hang out in the common area at night. Clean, safe and warm guesthouse! Almost feels like home each time I return at night. Will definitely come back again! :)

My stay in Seoul was really comfortable. Especially Nissa is such a nice person. She always helped us when we had a problem or just wanted something to know. At night it can be a little bit loud cause the living room is just in the center of the guest house. Breakfast was ok. You can eat as much toast, jam and eggs as you want. Also coffee and orange juice is included. (But it is instant coffee of course).

+ location is very good - only one hair dryer, which dissapears from time to time, because some people use it in their rooms and don't bring it back - towels are really small (better to have your own one)

Excellent location; lots of eateries, convenient stores within short walk. Excellent staffs; especially Nissa the super friendly caretaker and the manager Philip. Excellent value whether for short or long stay; I stayed for 13 nights over the Xmas & New Year in a twin share room. Excellent cleanliness; rooms and area being cleaned and vacuumed daily. Sufficient showers/toilets and clean towels and toilet papers. Excellent facilities; super fast Wifi and cable TV, unlimited coffee and toast too!

Every time I came to Seoul, I will choose Hongdae as where I should stay because of the cheap price and how its alive 24/7 and this guesthouse is simply in the middle of the area that gave me great access to everything, dont really spent much time at the guesthouse but the owner are very friendly and the place are clean and comfy. But still the great point of this guesthouse is the location ^^

The Guesthouse location is really great, it hard to find at first but whn you get used to the area it just superb. Nice staff. A bit noisy at night when other guest comeback but by midnight everything quiet down.
