We stayed here with 4 people and our rooms were very warm! The staff were also very welcoming and helpful, and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and accommodated well. The guesthouse is close to many wonderful shops and food stalls, and is within walking distance to many great locations and restaurants. Rooms were very... More

It was my first time to visit Seoul and was intrigued by staying in a traditional house and I was not disappointed. Doo Guesthouse 1 was well appointed, clean, quiet and the staff was very helpful. It was an eye-opening experience but well worth it. I had to change to Doo Guesthouse 2 since a friend was joining me and... More

It's our first time to visit Seoul. My mom, friends and I wanted to experience the traditional Korean housing so that we could immerse ourselves with this country's culture. Doo guesthouse was referred to me by my officemate as a value-for-money hanok guesthouse, accommodating and helpful staff and also has various hanboks (Traditional Korean Clothing) where we could don on...

I stayed here for a night. got there at 10 P.M and the staff still welcome us so kindly. The room actually didn't meet my expectation because it was small, but it was nice and clean. We are not used to sleep on futong beds which just a mattress on the floor, but since we stayed for the experience, so... More

We stayed one week in the tiny hostel. Cosy and clean with simple nice rooms. Sleeping the first nights was little difficult but only because we are not used to sleep on futong beds (only a thin matress on the floor) but staff was helpfull and added a blanket under the matress to make it softer. Overall a good price... More

If you are looking for a budget accommodation, I am sorry to say that this is definitely not the right place. The place is also not easy to find, do not come here if you are looking for a super clean place. That's the down side. The staff is super cool, nice and can I say crazy? We are welcome... More
