Not really crowded but there is human presence and hence, it feels...

The guesthouse is very near to exit 3 of Hongyik University station, walk straight from the exit and turn left when you see GS25, just walk a little further in and the guesthouse is on your right. Around 5-10 minutes walk and you will reach Hongdae shopping area. Everything is there, from restaurants to cosmetics. So no worries about the...

I agree with the other reviewers. This hostel is the perfect location and the staff are friendly and helpful. Restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all a few 1 - 15 minute walk away. The staff helped us with travel plans at the end of our trip. The room has a comfortable bed, hot pot for heating water, television,...

Very very simple and basic hostel. The only advantage is the location - with very easy access to the subway, and many stores around. The facilities are not even at average level, very outdated and basic. I don't think I will stay here again, sorry...

The best thing about Egg Guesthouse is the location. It is located just a few minutes walk from Hong Ik University station, which is connected to both AREX and metro line. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. After check-in, he spent time with us explaining about how to get around in Hongdae area. Moreover, there are many local...

The location of guesthouse is fantastic, it is just 2 mins walk from Hongdae station and it is surrounded by a lot of eateries and shopping malls. Since this is a guesthouse, it just occupies a few units of apartment for rent. There is no grand lobby or bellboy to help, I am fine with that. Once out of the...

Local hawker stalls are just across the street, you can also do shopping along the street. Mrt and airport buses are just in front of the hostel. It's so convinence to travel around and especially the airport buses are just in front when we need to depart to airport with lots of luggages.

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.
