I got to see the 6-persons bedroom because we made some great friends in he guesthouse, it was a little bit... More

On April 2014 I went to Seoul with my wife, and we decided to stay at Seoulwise Guesthouse. The owner (Mr.Young and his staff Adrian) was so kind and helpful. They speak good english too. Even before we arrived in Korea, we asked a lot of question about Seoul, and about the guesthouse, and and he kindly replied to all... More

This place was excellent for me and my sister who were travelling alone. Young was great and very helpful! Our friends we met even fell in love with him because he was so nice and helpful. The room (twin) was adequate for us and we had enough room to move (unlike in Japan). The room was cleaned everyday and convenient... More

My mum and i stayed here when we travelled Seoul. The accomodation was easy to find and at a very convenient location. Subway station was only a few minutes away and because it was at a university district it was always busy and therefore felt safe. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. The main owner was... More

Okay, this may be in year 2014, and I travelled to Korea in 2012, but it doesn't stop me from writing a review for this guesthouse as soon as I create an account in tripadvisor. Because yes, staying in this guesthouse is that memorable! I travelled with my friends in 2012, and there were four of us. We got a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and it was my first time to Korea. This place has a great location in Hongdae close to so many bakeries, coffee shops and cute cafes, and shopping and so on! Free breakfast is available each morning, making the value even better than it already was. It's quiet, very clean, and has spacious rooms too.... More

This is my second time in Seoulwise Guesthouse and I have to say that I'm always glad that I've picked this place. I've changed my reservation several times before I've reached and Mr Young was really patient with that. One of my friends came in crutches and we had to rent a wheelchair for her. Mr Young and his staff... More
