Whitetail was a really nice place to stay! Jun was helpful and helped us booked Nanta (comedy/music performance centered on cooking) tickets. Free breakfast every day from 9am to 10:30am.Our room (private twin) was super adorable and comfortable. It's located 10mins walk from Hongik station, in a fairly homey/quiet part of town. Few minutes walk would get to some nice restaurants and cafes, the main Hongdae area is bit further away. Definitely recommend others to stay here!
