The hostel has a good location, close to a metro station, but in a more quite area. The rooms are clean, well equipped, they has multiple washrooms so dont have to queue there. In our room the wifi signal was very weak, but once we told the staff about the problem, they immediately checked and gave us another room -... More

The hostel has all you need for a good night sleep, friendly staffs and guests, stable internet wifi connection and safe to stay in this hostel too. It is priced reasonable. You need to read the map thoroughly to find the exact location of the hostel, the map can be quite confused, try ask around for directions.

Although the location of this guest house is quite far from the city centre, other things make up for it. The staff is absolutely great, always helpful when we needed some directions or other info. The owner of the guesthouse was really caring and very interested. This made the guest house feel like a warm place. The rooms were good,... More

It's a nice and cozy place. It's not far from the subway (Hansung Univ.) and close to a convenient store. The staff I met spoke English very well. I stayed at a twin bed room with a private bathroom. There's enough space for placing my stuff in the room. The room was bigger than I thought. A hair dryer, TV,... More

I stayed in this guesthouse in July and I would say this is a really lovely place to stay. Well, it may not be as convenient as compared to staying right in the hearts of Myeongdong, but I love this place for its tranquility and also the first-hand experience of how living in a Korean house feels like. I don't... More

I've spent 2 days at one of the private rooms which was comfortable, warm and totally separated from the bigger house on the top of a hill providing a spectacular view at the city. The room was large enough and had a double bed. The room had also a shower room and toilet, which was clean and had all kind... More

Excellent location (5 minute walk to Hansung university subway station, blue line). Small but comfy and clean rooms with TV. Quiet and friendly environment. Free breakfast (toasts and juice). The shared bathrooms are not the cleanest but reasonable. The host Danny is very nice and gives useful travel advice even for cities outside of Seoul. However, Danny is not always... More
