I stayed here for 4 nights, and I loved my room! The room was spacious, super clean, with a washer to do your own laundry (for free)! Most of all, the location was perfect in terms of convenience! As previous reviewers have also mentioned, public transportation is literally footsteps away from the JK House. Oh, and JK! This man is... More

My friends and I loved our stay at this hostel and we would like to thank JK especially for his great hospitality. The room we stayed in is large and tidy. As for the hosts, JK is fluent in mandarin and Kyle is fluent in English so communication is not a problem at all. We have also joined the tour... More

The guesthouse itself is very clean and the owners are very friendly who can speak simple mandarin. It helps a lot when you don't speak Hangul at all. The location and public transport are fabulous! Hongdae JK Hse is located at Hongik University Station (line 2) and you can just hope on and transfer to any other lines to anywhere... More

My parents and I stayed at Hongdae JK House for 4 nights during our recent visit to Seoul. Our room, or rather an apartment / SOHO unit, was located at the 12th floor. Pros: 1) Generally it was a good stay and it's pretty easy to locate the guesthouse. The building is close to Hongik University subway station, in fact,... More

臨近弘大地鐵站的Hongdae JK House是第一次自助旅行選擇的居住民宿!! 民宿的房間相當乾淨與整齊,房間的view可以看見最真實的韓國住宅大樓; 除此之外,民宿老闆的人也相當Nice,幫忙代訂NANTA Show tickets 以及炸雞, 還推薦了不少鄰近的美食!下次等春假或暑假有機會再規劃去Soeul旅行的時候, 首選的民宿還會是Hongdae JK House:)

I've stayed in JK House twice for my first trip to Seoul, once in a girls' dorm and a night in the family room. JK House is easily accessible even for a student like me.

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.
