Other than location, I don't think I will ever go back to this guesthouse. I was booked from 22 June through 30 June 14. My impression of this place is dingy and dirty. I will show some pictures I took later on. I was ushered into a tiny room, well.. i understand land is expensive in Seoul so no grouse... More

Because of the time we went back to the guesthouse is different, so using password to enter room is more convenient for the group like us. Staff is very nice and friendly. The location of the guesthouse is very near to the exit of mrt. The room is very neat and comfortamble !

I stayed at J-guesthouse for 3 nights. As double room is full, the guesthouse offered us a Triple room and charged us Won 65,000 (USD61) per night (original price should be Won 70,000, USD66). This price is bargain as it includes a very simple breakfast (toast, egg and tea) and private bathroom. The guesthouse is near the Sinchon subway, 5mins... More

I stayed at Shinchon guest house in the spring of 2012 for 3 nights. It is located in a super cute, and accessible part of Seoul. From the train station in Seoul, it's only about a 15 minute subway ride, or a quick ride in a cab. The front desk staff is awesome, and all speak English exceptionally well. I... More

Staying in Sinchon / Ewha

Neighborhood Profile
Sinchon / Ewha
Neighboring Hongdae, the Sinchon / Ewha area by Yonsei University and Ewha Womans University is a popular student hangout spot known for its youthful jovialness. The two respective schools and their beautiful settings are among the best in Korea. As the main demographic in the area are younger students, most of the businesses cater to their tastes with price ranges to match. The plethora of things to do in the area makes it busy all through the day and night. The area around Ewha is particularly popular with women as it’s famed for its shopping and affordable hair and nail salons.
