I wasn't having doubts on a guesthouse, but eventually it turned out great! We did not have a good experience checking into the guesthouse as nobody opened the door for us (around 9-10am) and outside weather was freezing and we did stated on the early check in possibility. Therefore it forced us to have breakfast somewhere else before someone wakes... More

I stayed for 3 nights. The place is very DIY... and more like you just crash at one of the bunks at someone's apartment in a mid-rise building with bunch of other travelers.

It's located at Chungmuro Stn, which is just a few stops away from the shopping places (Itaewon, Myeongdong, Dongdaemun) and is easily accessible to other places (a change or 2 of the subway lines...

The guesthouse is conveniently located behind the Korea House near the Chungmuro station at downtown Seoul. There is a convenience store in front, so you don't have to go far to find your necessities. It also near key places of interest such as Myeongdong, N Seoul Tower, Dongdaemun, and a stop for the limousine bus to the airport. The service... More
