I stayed in Birdsnest hotel for three nights, staffs are really nice and friendly, hostel is tiny but feels like home. even it's a little not so close to the station but it locates in a nice area which is good for relaxing.

The first day when I arrived here I got the feeling to be a friend already. So, especially if you travel alone. You never get a feel of loneliness in here. Everyone is really kind and willing to help you. If it's your first time in Korea just come to Birdsnest!

The place is really nice and clean. Close to everything and you can meet a lot of people. The beds are comfortable and they are providing you a free towel for the shower. There is a very nice small yard and 2 common areas where you can drink and socialize. I will definitely come back.

Staying in Hongdae

Neighbourhood Profile
Hongdae
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
