Good location, clean, and comfortable. The owner is helpful. I really liked the numerous large common areas. The bunk bed was a little too firm for me.
Location is great, very close to subway and Hongdae excitement, but in a very quiet spot. Yung was very helpful and puts this place above the rest. He truly cares about your experience.
Seoulwise was a wonderful experience. Location is great--super close to the Hongik University subway and in the center of the Hongdae area, where you will find all your eating, partying, and drinking for great prices (way cheaper than Gangnam/Apgujeong/Itaewon area). Young was a great host and if you have any questions, you can ask him! We asked him for everything from booking tickets to Busan, to the best restaurants for KBBQ and other foods. He is a wonderful and kind resource!

I love this place. I've stayed here more than 4 times already! The owner, Young, is very nice and accommodating. He will help you plan out your trip in Seoul if you do need any help. Slippers are provided for your use while indoors. You are not allowed to wear outside shoes indoors. Flat bed sheets and a pillowcase are provided upon check-in. Optional towel upon check-in as well. This place is very clean. And I definitely recommend it.
Had a nice chill time at Seoul Guesthouse! I stayed during the low season, so I actually ended up getting my own room for two nights (the other 3 beds in the room were empty!). Very clean and within walking distance of all of Hongdae and the subway stop. Both of the people I met who worked at the guesthouse were very accommodating and helpful. Would stay again. :)
Very clean, very comfortable hostel located within minutes of Hongdae hot spots. Thanks for a great stay!
Was empty during my stay due to MERS scare, but great otherwise. Points off on security as no secure place (that I was made aware of) to put valuables.
Amazing hostel, the staff is incredibly friendly. The owner, Young, is the coolest guy ever and he helped us a bunch. The rooms are very clean and the facilities are great. The location is perfect. We will definitely return!
Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at! The facilities are great and the rooms and shower/bathroom very clean. The rooms are private, but there is still an extra bathroom in the corridor for your convenience. The location was great as it's in a very lively university area with great cafes and restaurants. On the other hand, it takes a while to get to the city center, but I preferred the university area especially in the evenings. The staff speaks excellent English.
That's an excellent hostel. If it's your first time in Korea/Seoul, you could really need some good advice how to get around there and what is worth a visit. The staff is extremely helpful. It was a nice stay. Thank you!
Security: Lockers and a lock provided for free. It's hard to imagine any hostel doing much better. Location: You're not very far from common attractions in Seoul. Staff: The owner was very friendly and helpful. He has visited hostels around the world and put a lot of thought into everything. Cleanliness: The six beds in my room looked new. Everything was clean. Facilities: Everything I saw was well maintained. Value: I paid under $20 a night! Atmosphere: The MERS scare made things pretty quiet.

This is a great hostel,located in a fun part of Seoul. It’s close to the subway and pretty easy to find. While its location is relatively central it’s in a quite location just off the main street so you won’t have any problems with crowds from nightclubs and bars on the street waking you up. The room and bathroom was spotlessly clean. I met the owner, Mr Young, the first day I arrived and he was very helpful with regards to giving advice on what to see in Seoul. Highly recommended place to stay!
Hotel staff friendly and helpful, the facilities had everything I needed. There's also so much to do near hongdae and the hostel was a perfect resting place a bit further from the crowded streets and busy nightlife just across the metro station.
I loved this guest house. I booked 3 nights then stayed for a week. The staff is really friendly and helpful, they know good places to get food nearby, and they helped me figure or how to get to everything I wanted to see in Seoul. The bed was comfortable, the shower was clean and spacious, and there are lockers in the room big enough for a day bag. The location is close to the train and nightlife, but still quiet. I will be back next time I am in Seoul.
