Good Facilities, secure and the staff is helpful and nice but the location is a little bit far away from the city center. It's not easy for me to find a place to eat something good. It would be better If the bathroom and the toilet be separated. In a word, it's value for money

Within 15 minutes of walking distance from Phil House, you can relax... More

Excellent location ideal for travelers. It only take 2 mins from Achasan station(Line 5). The room was clean and comfortable. Offering bed cover and pillow cover can stay more pleasant. Above all, each room have bathroom(with simple shower booth), Wifi(unlocked and fast) and washing machine(can use for free!). These make my trip highly comfortable. And I enjoyed all these merit...

My stay was amazing at the Philhouse. First, the location was at nearby subway station! The staff was so pleasant, the lounge/room are fully stocked with almost anything you could think of and nothing seemed out of place. Such comfy beds. Great location for all things tourist. Would highly recommend

I've stayed in this guesthouse twice already, and I think I'll stay here again next time I go back to Seoul. First, the staff are courteous and very friendly and accommodating, starting from process of booking the rooms up to calling airport taxis to Incheon. Second, the rooms are cool and wifi is fast. Third, the location rocks because it... More

Phils House is beautifulllll! clean, cheap!!, near the station, TOO NEAR actually like 1-2mins just walk. BUT hotel staffs don't really communicate with customers. front desk always empty. I travelled 22 countries, my first time encountered a hostel where staff is either missing or not so talkative and helpful or recommending travellers with brochures and points of places to go...
