We spent 5 nights here. The location is not too far nor near the subway station. The staffs are friendly and kind. A very homely environment. This hostel does not have lifts, so if you're carry heavy and bulky luggages, be prepared to climb up the stairs. It has a total of four storeys. I had bulky and heavy luggage,... More

I've lost count as to how many times I've stayed at Studio 41st whenever I visit Seoul. That shows how good the place is. The location is good. Accessible to anywhere since its near the subway station. And it's at the infamous Hongdae area where there are a lot of street food and shopping. I really like the rooms.It's very... More

The property is clean and enough for what you paid for. The breakfast is self served and it is really nice to cook your own egg how you like it. The customer service is outstanding! Evy and the rest of the staff were just amazing! I will definitely return to studio 41!

Location - One of the things that we did not have enough foresight was that we would spend a lot of time at Myeongdong versus Hongdae. Getting from the Hongik University station to the Myeongdong station was time consuming. Make sure that most of the sites you will visit will be at the Hongdae area, or you won't be taking... More

Staying in Hongdae

Neighborhood Profile
Hongdae
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.
