Seoulwise guesthouse is in a great location in Hongdae. Close to heaps of bars, restaurants, street vendors and walking distance to night clubs. The owner Young is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. Seoulwise is a short distance to the Hongik University subway station which is on the airport railroad line as well as the green line, this makes for very easy travel to/from airport and around Seoul. Would definitely recommend staying there.

I was completely satisfied! it was my 3rd stay here. the owner Young knows a lot about Seoul and knows exactly what backpackers need! free soap/shampoo from former guests to use. sell stamps! breakfast: cereals, toast, OJ,coffee. 7mins walk to Hongdae subway Station, in a quiet neighbourhood. security is good: only guests with key get inside. very clean! we got a free upgrade and big towels to use. I'd definitely recommend it and would stay there again! Thanks! :D

Stayed here for one night. The hostel is good and staff were helpful. They were fine with us checking in later than expected and showed us the to our rooms. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was simple but just right! It's a bit of a walk (15 minutes) from the main Hongdae strip but I would stay here again.

Clean and safe environment with a very friendly staff. I feel like I left the hostel with more friends than I came with. I would definitely recommend!

We've enjoyed our stay there and grateful for Mr. Yang's wonderful hospitality! The only downside if I may bring it up is that the room gets quite humid in summer (due to weather and lack of ventilation?) and the bed mattress is ...a little bit uncomfortable:( But overall, it was great and thank you very much!

Young, the hostel owner, was very helpful and knowledgable about Seoul. He let me use his T money card for the week, and helped me book bus tickets. The location is great as the hostel is just a few blocks away from the Hongik University station. When I returned to Seoul later in my trip, I chose to stay there again. Breakfast consists of cereal, toast, tea, and coffee (from freshly ground beans). Alas, no eggs. Otherwise, a great place to stay.

The staff were really friendly, breakfast included was toast, coffee and juice. Rooms were cleaned every day. Tons of books to browse through to help plan your trip, staff have great recommendations as well. Close to the subway and in a great neighbourhood to explore. Would stay here again if I went back to Korea.

Young (the boss) is really helpful and a lovely guy. When I first arrived he explained everything I might need, gave me some good advice and a subway card, etc. If I'm back in Seoul, I'd definitely stay here again.
