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.

The staff was really nice and helpful who made my stay in Seoul much easier. Everything was clearly written that I was well informed abt all the information I had to know. 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!

I made friends with Guesthouse staff and people who stayed here. I originally booked a bed for 4 days and ended up extending my stay for the entire time I was in Seoul. The place is a little hard to find if you're not really good with maps (also, Korean streets are a little more confusing with their lack of... More

We had a friend in Seoul book Housetay for us and we were very disappointed upon arrival. The map we got was not very helpful (uses Family Marts as landmarks, but there aren't any around!) and eventually we had to get a restaurant to call the owner and come find us. When we got to our room, it was basically... More

Firstly, map given on the website to locate the guesthouse was wrong. I was stuck and walked in rounds with my luggage and eventually gave up. My google map did better. Then, the toilet was horrible. Heater wasnt working and I had to bath in cold water at night, with the rain outside. It was messy and dirty, toiletries were... More
