The guesthouse is conveniently located just a short walk from the subway station and the rest of the city is very easily accessible from there. The guesthouse is clean and cosy with breakfast included. The manager is very friendly and helpful,... More

Though I missunderstood my arrival date, the owner warmly welcomed me. and he always takes care of the guest, so it's really cozy there at the hostel. Of course, friendly stuffs, good location and nice breakfast included! I'm sure I'll stay at this guest house next time again :)

If ever my friends and I needed assistance, with simple tasks such as ordering food or looking for directions, the staff was eager to assist. Also, the location was set in a great part of hongdae, making my stay really fun. The only... More

I had an awesome time at this guesthouse. The staff were super friendly, and I made lots of friends with the other guests. The free breakfast is handy and if you want to start the night with some quiet drinks you can go to Barstay which is a 30 second walk away. I will definitely return to Housetay.

However, when more guests move in, it could be quite noisy in the guesthouse at night. And bathrooms were always in use at night that we had to... More

The staff are really friendly and always there if you need help. The location is very good near all the restaurant, bar and the subway. The free breakfast is just at the front of the guesthouse in a nice cafe/bar I recommend Housetay

My friend and I stayed here for 1 night for our first trip in Seoul. For the price it's a great place to stay and it's in Hongdae which was a really interesting area to explore, and maybe under 10 minutes walk from the metro station!
