The director,who goes by B.T,buzzed us in around 9 o'clock in the morning, well before check in time and without reservation. We had found the place by mistake. He immediately made us feel at home and began preparing two available beds. We chatted briefly and he put us up earlier than policy states with no extra charge. Later that afternoon... More

A great place to stay in. The host and staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay there. Will definitely stay there again when I'm back in seoul. The location is near enough to the metro. But there are a lot of stuff to visit around the guesthouse as well.

This guesthouse is located in a quiet area yet not far from the Hongdae Cultural Area. Very close to 2 subway lines (2&6), which makes it convenient to transport to most of the interesting spots in Seoul. There is a local market within 5 minutes walk to explore the local life and foods. The rooms and beds were comfortable, the... More

Yooginong is a fantastic choice if you are looking for something a) clean B) quiet C) welcoming There are many other reasons to book this place, but you will have to go there yourself to experience it. I stayed for four nights and was lucky to have a four person room all to myself in low season. The room was... More

I recently found myself in this nice guesthouse with such pleasant, friendly and helpful hosts. I didn't expect much when I first booked this place mainly because it was so cheap. But from the first time I set foot in this guesthouse, there was never a time I felt less like home. The host in particular, BT, has helped me... More

I've lived in Korea for a year, and every time I visited Seoul I always wondered why Hongdae was considered the heart of independent subcultures in Korea, because the only thing I ever saw was drunken kids and night clubs, with the exception of a few cool cafes. However, the staff at Yooginong seem to be authentic veterans of the... More

I didn't expect that much when I booked this guesthouse cause it was cheap. Yet, after spending 3 nights here, I was really satisfied. I used one bed in 6 dormitory room with two girls. The room was spacious and bright. I heard that this guesthouse re-opened one month ago at a new place. Due to that, the house looked... More
