the room is clean but the whole house is quite old.. not so convenient as we need to take turn to go toilet every morning because not every toilet is available to use in the morning.. but overall is okay with this price.. still worth it.. very helpful staff and very kind owner too.. overall still satisfy with the stay..

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

I stayed here for 11 nights with 2 other close friends. Enjoyed the stay overall. Will organise my review into a couple of categories to make easier reading. Room: Good: We stayed in a 3 bed room (Room 103)- one bunk and one single that was located on the Ground floor. The single bed was without a doubt the better... More

We have stayed there for 6 nights. Danny the owner picked us us at the Metro Station Exit 5 and his wife dropped us at the airport bus station when we're heading back to the airport. All of the staffs are excellent. Danny gave us a brief tips about where to go and how to go including the recommended places... 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

It's been a few months since we last stayed at Open Guest House, but I vividly remember how nice the experience was. My brother and I stayed for 9 days, and found ourselves right at home here. Firstly, it's a big house! With clever walls and partitions. I'm quite inspired to model my home after their's for our next renovation.... More

Our 7 night stay at Open Guest House was excellent. The best part was the owner who gave excellent advice and was always willing to help. His wife picked us up from the airport bus stop and he dropped us off stop on our way home. The staff member who is present at nights is also very friendly and helpful.... More

Not enough can be said about this place. I have stayed here on 3 occasions and each time I have felt extremely welcome. Danny is an amazing host who is there to help with anything you need. He helped us book a skiing trip, recommended places to eat, places to hang out indoors (it was -17C ouside) and recommended treks... More

We stayed at the Open Guest House for three nights in October at the start of a two week road trip around South Korea. We arrived without knowing that it was a hostel but Danny (who runs the Guest House with his family) and his family put us at ease immediately and ensured that we had the most comfortable stay....
