The location of the guesthouse is extremely close to the train station (2 minute walk to Hongik University Station). Great location for those who want to see Seoul on a budget. Staff makes sure that all of their guests feel welcome. They let a group of us check-in early after even though we had arrived at 4 AM. Free breakfast... More

Stayed here in April 2016 by myself whilst travelling Korea. Having stayed in a fair few guesthouses/hostels in Asia, Seoul i was easily one of the best. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful (even helping me to report my phone lost at a local police station after a crazy night in Hongdae!) and always had time to chat and... More

Seoul i Guesthouse was the first stop on my 4 month trip around Asia and a perfect place to start! I arrived like a zombie due to a horrific journey from the UK, the staff were very kind and even let me delay payment of my deposit until the next day when I did not have enough cash. Within 5...

Like the title says. Staff is enormously friendly and the guesthouse is clean and located on a quieter bit of hongik unit but still very central! Only one disadvantage which is the private room no. 4, located next to the reception. You can hear everything, when jet lagged not always very great. As well as the fact in the streets... More

I was travelling on my own and found this hostel. It's conveniently located near Hongik University station, so you can take a direct train from either airport. It's also very near to Hapjong, which is great for food and night life. A few stops away are the two main palaces and temples so no shortages of things to see and... More

At first, location of this hotel is perfect – it is right near exit 3 of Hongik Univ station, which is a good transportation hub to go anywhere. Airport KTX line also comes here. There are many dining places near hostel and just in 10min walk there is a big shopping place. The room was clean, cozy, and warm. Stuff... More

“I prefer the rooms on the second floor because they are right beside the kitchen and the common room with computers.”

“Staying on the 3rd floor may be a little loud at night when people come and go, but I really didn't mind it. You meet a lot of different people when you stay on that floor.”
