    Location, location, location. You are right next to a station when you stay here, and right in the middle of lively Hongdae! I was super impressed with how comfortable the bed was compared to the other hostels I’ve been staying in. The hostess is so sweet and very helpful with directions. She even makes you a great breakfast each morning and washes clothes 3 times a week!! Incredible service. Highly recommend. Thanks for everything!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hongdae Chef: the owner was so kind and considerate in all ways: accommodating with our check in, providing clean towels every day, swapping our beds after a couple of days so we were on the bottom bunks, making breakfast fresh for just us when we were the only ones there... Oh, and the breakfasts were delicious! A great start to the day, and settling down at night in our comfy beds was a great way to end it. We also especially enjoyed the windowed balcony. :)

    The owner is the sweetest woman on the face of the planet. I don't want to stay at any other guest house now. I felt like i was having a sleepover with my nice korean aunt. ♡♡ I love waking up to warm breakfast and kpop music videos. Haha

    The beds are really comfy, and I felt very welcome there. There is a 10,000 won deposit for the house and locker keys, but you do get that back after so it's no problem. There's no lock on the room door, but you do have your own small locker.

    I enjoyed my stay here, the place was clean and the staff was very nice. I also enjoyed the breakfast that was made by the staff. Only thing I did not like was how difficult it was to get there. The directions were a bit confusing so it took a awhile for me to get there on foot from the station. There were only 2 showers available so I had to wait sometimes for my turn. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

    good: really nice host, she makes individual breakfast, good recommendations bad: no curtains at beds, no atmosphere, people do not care for others (get up loudly at 4am or do full volume video calls at the breakfast table)
