Stayed in their twin room with 2 single beds for 7 nights. The room was quite small but enough for both of us. They have provided kitchen stove, microwave, washing machine & fridge inside the room. You can borrow utensils & frying pan from them too. They did not provide towels in the room but you still can borrow from... More

The best place to stay in Seoul, really cheap guesthouse in great location - near Seoul's temples and close to the metro station. In neighborhood there are many korean restaurants, fast foods, bars and pubs. All the time we could feel family atmosphere, staff is really nice and helpful, always smiling. And we could use little "kitchen", some necesary things... More

We had our Seoul escapade last November 2012.. We were supposed to book another hostel but unfortunately (due to visa problems) we booked late and the hostel was full. So we asked for suggestions from the owner of the hostel, he gladly suggested, goldenpond. Location: Looking at the website, it was really good because the MRT is near. And the... More

Although we didn't stay at the main building, we enjoyed are room at their extension building. Wifi is fast, very clean, and spacious for the... More

First and foremost, I remember the staff who greeted us was friendly, helping us with our luggage and getting around the neighbourhood. The guesthouse on the other hand had a very cosy and homey feeling that I love. With basic stuff like internet access in every room, kitchen, water cooler, English-speaking staff, and a location within short walking distance to... More

The rooms are simple but clean and with some kitchen facilities in case you wanna cook something easy. The toilet is rather small but is also clean and the y have a small wardrobe in the room too. It is nothing fancy but it is good for the price and it is quite near the subway in a nice neighbourhood... More

Locatipn, location, location. Goldenpond Guesthouse is close to the metro and numerous buses. Best of all are the countless coffee shops and stores nearby on the buzzing streets. Rooms are small but adequate. Clean sheets. Staff friendly and accommodating. You can't go wrong here.

Staying in Daehakno

Neighborhood Profile
Daehakno (literally "University Street") is home to a number of famed universities, so the neighborhood is always abuzz with university students, and a youthful, optimistic energy permeates the air. The abundance of restaurants, cafes, and shops cater to the younger demographic in both taste and prices, making it a popular meet-up area. Daehakno is also famed for its creativity, showcased in the many amateur performances put on at Marronnier Park and in more professional productions at small independent theaters scattered through the neighborhood. For a break, be sure to check out Ihwa Mural Village nearby, a former shantytown transformed into an art village with installations and wall paintings. It hosts a Filipino Market on Sundays.
