For me, this guesthouse is more of an Airbnb where you rent a furnished room for a certain number of days. Aside from the incident where the owner (Mr. Hong) charged us with a no show fee (which was resolved easily), our stay was generally ok. What I liked about this place: 1. Great location (areas of interest within 500m)...

Good price comparing room, facilities and great location. The airport limousine stop is in front of the hostel so it is very easy to get to and from the airport. Right in Dongdaemun shopping area. Dongdaemun Design Plaza is just opposite. The underground is very near and there are 3 lines so it is very convenient to get to anywhere...

Convenient location, just 5 minute walk to Metro Station and Dongdaemun, opposite to the new Design Park. Safety is not a concern even at midnight. Rooms are nicely decorated, with separate bathroom. But it's quite small, and cleanness should be improved a little bit. Free jam and bread available. The owner speaks English. He's nice and helpful.

First of all, let me start by saying that the hostel is not that bad. For the price, one gets the basic accommodation, no bells and whistles, no frills. Room was quite worn out and in need of some maintenance. There is a fridge and an electric kettle in the room but there was insufficient cutleries/utensils (not enough cups/mugs). Microwave...

The location is very convenient, the subway station is within 5 min walking distance, there are many resturants and cafes nearby. The Dongdaemun shopping is about 10 to 15min walks away. There is a convenient store downstair, a good place to get drinks and snacks. The room is of good size, the beds are good enough for a good night...

Location is good if you are travelling using public transport. If you are taking cab, the driver may not know this place especially if they do not speak english. Mr Hong was very hospitable. Easy check in and check out. A train stop away is Myeongdong and walking to Dongdaemun fashion mall is about 5 mins. Whole street of eateries...

First of all, the location is great - it's just about five minutes walk to the train station. There's a convenience store in the building (ground floor), and it's so close to the shopping and food places. Mr. Hong is nice enough to let us rest in our room earlier than the check-in time. The room is clean and large...

Staying in Dongdaemun / Sindangdong

Neighbourhood Profile
Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit. Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and other goods while prices are relatively low. The night shopping (between late night and early morning) is particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a place where you can literally shop until you drop. If fashion isn't what you’re looking for, the long-running wholesale markets nearby sell everything from cloth to utensils at lower prices. The rows of food stalls that set up at night ensure shoppers get refueled, and foodies will enjoy checking out nearby Sindang-dong’s Tteokbokki Town as well as some non-Korean offerings from the Central Asian Village near Dongdaemun.
