First time staying at Ann's during my December trip. The room was fully equipped with washing machine, kitchen utensils, own bathroom. Love the location of the guesthouse as the basement entry is already hongik uni station exit. Guesthouse itself is also located in a superb location. Couldnt have asked for more at a reasonable and affordable price as well. Would... More

I've stayed at Ann's Guesthouse twice now, mainly because the location and service is excellent. Hongdae is literally just across the street so there's always lots to do! Plus, it's just above Hongik University Station, which also connects to Incheon and Gimpo Airport directly, so no dragging heavy luggages all over Seoul before reaching the airport. Even her second guesthouse... More

Stayed at this place last November and found it to be a nice place in a great location. Location wise can't be faulted as the building sits directly above the Seoul Underground Metro, i.e. Hongik Univ Station. Just take the lift to the basement and the station is right there. So convenient to traverse across Seoul City. Owner, Ann is... More

Great location, The Guest House is located in the shopping arcade. It's easy to transfer to other places by metro. Getting to the airport was convenient. If I were to visit Korea again. I would definitely stay here.

“HOME AWAY FROM HOME” – one of the first few things me and my friends sought for in preparation for our vacation trip in Seoul, South Korea. We were six in the group; one guy (me!) and five girls. Our criteria for choosing were simple; BUDGET FRIENDLY – the place should be budget conscious; we wanted to stay in a... More

Staying in Hongdae

Neighborhood Profile
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
