I had only booked for one night and ended up extending for 3 nights as I loved it. I stayed from Sunday-Wednesday and found it to be very quiet but this may be a different story Friday and Saturday night. The bedroom was very clean and the beds comfy (much comfier than other hostels I have stayed in). The owners... More

Location, not too far from convenient store, eateries and public transportation. That's the best part. Friendly owner.   However, the noise coming from right across it starting from around midnight was horrible. There is a pub right across. Gets really loud right about the time you are going to sleep. Cleanliness; not so much of fault of the owner, rather the... More

Staffs are very nice and helpful. Bedroom is clean but toilet a bit dirty. Housemate also helpful and friendly. Free WiFi! This guesthouse not really far from subway just 10 minutes walking (you have to get off from Hongik Uni Exit 1 )

Cheap for a strategic place in Hongdae, clean although the bathroom is not as clean as the room, good breakfast (bread-jam-milk-juices-cereals,coffee-tea, eggs, etc). The owner is very helpful and kind. You can cook in the kitchen too. They have a nice sitting place with sun umbrella outside.

I did not personally stay at the guesthouse but my parents did. I booked a double room at the guesthouse for my parents, but upon arriving, we found out that the room had been double-booked. Jasper was so apologetic and even brought us around to see whether there are other guesthouses in the vicinity that has a room that we... More

Orange Guesthouse is a pretty looking building at the corner of a quiet street, that is prolly about a 10min walk away from Hongdae. The manager Jasper is really sweet as when we arrived, it turned out the previous travellers in our room lost the air conditioner controller but the AC can still be turned on with a manual button....

We visited for one week and what a week it was. The orange guesthouse is in a great location in the uni district. The staff are brilliant and you will immerse yourself in the Korean culture straight away. Thank you very much jasper and the team.

I stayed here last September with my sons. We were greeted and welcomed as if we were old friends and we were invited to eat with the owners / staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the only house rule was "don't wake the other residents up when you come back in at night". We were even met and escorted... More

This place was in a fantastic area if you're interested in a bit of a night scene. It's right in the smack of the Hongdae region and full of great bars, shops and restaurants. If you're not into drinking - there's a huge cafe culture too. Tusk and Jamie were super helpful and very friendly - they even stored our... More

Staying in Hongdae

Neighborhood Profile
Hongdae
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
