Great place to stay! Located close to tons of bars and restaurants, and close to the train. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The lockers were small but I always felt that my belongings were secure. Everything was neat and the amenities were nice. Met cool travelers too!

Second time I have stayed here, this time in the mixed dorm room. This is one of the best hostels in Seoul. Incredibly friendly staff, very clean rooms, yummy breakfast and comfortable beds. The atmosphere is always quiet, peaceful, and kind. Plus it's always full of people from all over, so it's a great way to meet new people. I can't recommend this place enough!

Great stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, just far enough away from the main strip of Hongdae so that it was quiet but close enough to where the nightlife was. Plus there's a really good American style brunch place right down the road (Travel Makers).

Everything was good. The hostel was located very close to station. Only one point is that we need to make breakfast on our own. It there is an available prepared brekfast, this palce will be perfect.

The hostel is really well located, 1 min walking from the exit 3 of Hongik University! We had a problem when we arrived, i booked 2 beds in the Mix Room ( for me and my boyfriend ) and then the staff said that I put as if would be 2 females coming, but not true because I even didnt see this option, what I did was only booking the 2 beds in the Mix Room, so the first night I and my boyfriend had to sleep in a different room! But then in the next morning they upgrade us for a private room! =)

Seoul guest house was one of the cleanest and well kept hostels I've been to in Seoul. The location was in a quiet part of Hongdae and not too far from the main area. It was only a 3 minute walk from the subway exit. Only downside-- I wish the staff were available later, but they were very friendly.

Great accommodating staff! Very friendly and even upgraded our room for free after we realized the 3 people private was actually a double bed and a single , not 3 singles (I'm female travelling with 2 males). Room and bathroom was very nice and clean, good location. Highly recommend.

Stuff is friendly and attentive. Nice rooms. Nice guests. Nice atmosphere. Location is nearby a station of the incheon railroad express. So you can get there easy from/to the airport.

The hostel located next to the subway station Hongik university. The room is not very big but every thing is clean and convient. They have clean sheet and pillow cover for every guest and the receptionists are very nice and helpful. I stayed for 3 days and I like everything there. One of the best I ever stayed. Thanks.

Staff is really helpful&polite. Location is right next to line 2 subway and easy to get to anywhere. The room is small, but again it is what you normally expect in Korea especially with a hostel. At least it is clean, safe and has everything you need. For solo traveler that needs some privacy, maybe not a dorm but a single room. Noise is always inevitable in a dorm setting, like after 11pm & early a.m. But again, this is how hostel like. In general, I'd stay again & recommend to frds.

- tiny rooms and lockers, no space to hang a towel to dry anywhere. Space for Luggage very limited. - Door Lock is kind of useless as the slide window is never locked. - Floor heating was off, even though minus degrees outside at nighttime privacy curtains good location! close to subway and airport express clean rooms and common area

+ great location, includes a basic breakfast, - If you get a 3 bed private, note that it's not actually 3 beds but two beds, one of which is a double which is large enough for two people, but not what's advertised and then room is very small.

Thank you for review. First of all, we feel sorry that we couldn't meet your expectations. As we might have some language barrier between Korean and English, guess there is misunderstanding about the room condition. But the thing is that's why we uploaded pictures of room for prevent this kind of problem :) Hopely you understand this situation and please check next time... We feel really sad about your review... u.u

If your guesthouse have some tools to help us to carry our suitcase up the floor or down to the 1st floor, it would be much convenient.

The staff were the best part of this hostel. Extremely friendly and helpful! Other than that the hostel was average. Has everything you'd expect of a normal hostel, no real problems.
