Fantastic location but doesn't deliver on some previous reviews The location is fantastic as you can walk to all the major sights quite easily. They also have a pleasant 'common room' in the basement with computers which is where breakfast is served. That's the good news. It's very difficult to find at first as it's in a small unmarked alley... More

Me and my friend stayed here for 6 days and 5 nights. The location of the guesthouse is conveniently located at the center of seoul. Very near tourists spots like insadong, gwanghamun square, gyeongbukgong and changdeukgong palace, jongmyo shrine, jogyesa temple, chonggyecheon stream and gwangjang market. We actually walked from shunshine to those places since its really near and the... More

... or as a trip with friends, since the staff is amazing. They are not only helpful giving directions, helping you to plan your tours, etc., but they also dedicate time to talk with you about anything, like friends you have known from years. The location of the hostel is perfect if what you are looking for is to know... More

Amazing owner Max speaks four languages and his staff also are skilled in several languages. A one minute walk from the subway in a neighborhood of restaurants. Rooms are small but quite adequate and clean, each with its own bathroom and fridge. An excellent value in a good location near several attractions. We appreciated Max's knowledge of local restaurants, recommending... More

The staff was super friendly, gave us a map of the city and told us where to go and gave us some good recommendations. Breakfast was included and the guy from the reception cook it for us, while having a good chat. Room was a bit small and the bed was hard, but that normal for Asia. Shopping Tip: Close... More

Really nice location, 50m away from Jongno-3 ga exit 4 escalator of line 5 and 100m away from line 3. So in this case, you can ride the subway all the way from Incheon Airport for only 4000won. Convenience store is just at the main street. Staff speak good English and they will help you carrying your luggage up the... More

The staff at Sunshine guesthouse are so helpful and friendly. They all speak English very well. The rooms are cozy and one gets value for money by staying at Sunshine. The location is ideal and it's a 1 minute walk from the subway. Restaurants line the streets around the guesthouse. I won't stay anywhere else when visiting Seoul.

I loved that it was right in the centre of town where I wanted to be. Walking distance to most of the palaces and markets. It was nice and flat no hilly areas at all. Within walking distance to metro and buses. The room was quiet and airconditioning a pleasant bonus. Plenty of street vendors in the same street for... More
