I found the Sleeping Strawberry while searching for vegetarian hostels in Seoul. I quickly discovered that it is more than just a vegetarian-friendly hostel: it is a community of fun, engaged, brilliant, and kind people from Seoul. The hostel itself is in a very convenient location near Hongik University, very easily accessible by metro. It's clean and comfortable, and has... More

I was so impressed with the story you became a vegetarian. You spotted my guesthouse in the internet to travel Korea as a vegan. So did I. Two years ago, I searched vegan restaurants by internet and then enjoyed vegan food at some restaurants while traveling Kyoto in Japan. It was one of amusing methods of traveling. You informed me...

Thank you for your great review! I used also to find my second home sometimes while traveling in and out of the country. I was more of a friend than a guest/client to them. Despite the differences between us, there's one thing in common between us. It's that we are women travelers. And we are concerned with the sustainable lifestyle.... More

UE is so wonderful and friendly. Feel free to ask her any and all questions- she knows everything inside and outside Seoul! She constantly introduces you to many gems in and out of Seoul other than the typical tourist hotspots, so you get a sense of true local color during your stay. The hostel is very convenient in terms of... More

Thank you for your great review! You visited your parents' homeland on your own and I was happy to help you traveling in Seoul. During staying at Sleeping Strawberry, we spent lots of time together because there were always many events in Seoul including Hongdae area near the guesthouse. And you had an opportunity for transplanting rice seedling in the... More

Ue is a very welcoming host and helped me find lots of things I was looking for, including various vegetarian/vegan places to eat. The hostel is very clean and run in a very sustainable way. I felt totally at home there and she invited me to a slow food market on Sunday morning, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Staying there totally... More

Great to see you! I help my vegetarian guests with the relevant information to help myself. It's an activity for reducing global warming for me. I have a good feeling about your stay in Korea. I hope to see and talk to you soon! More

I was lucky to be introduced to UE's Sleeping Strawberry Guesthouse last year, 2013, and I keep coming back there when I travel to Seoul. I've also been able to experience very special events outside of the guesthouse thanks to UE always striving to include her guests in her activities. UE and her staff and close friends and colleagues are... More

Ana, you're no longer a guest. Most of all my x-guests living in Korea is now my friend, including you. I'm happy Sleeping Strawberry functions as a good place to establish a network of solo women travelers. You're having a wonderful life as a teacher and a city farmer. I hope you live long in Korea. See you frequently! More

Hi! I remember you were a so curious traveler. We had the opportunity of tasting some special foods at the Sharing Native Seeds Festival. I expect you to live a energetic life no matter where you live. Do you live in Europe now? Tell me you news on the fb. More

I would definitely stay at Sleeping Strawberry again. Ue was outstanding at communicating before my trip, providing lots of suggestions on things to do, and it was easy to pay once there. The directions, including pictures, to the home from the subway/airport were spot on.

Thank you for your good review. You spent a short time in Seoul because you laid over for only two nights on way to other country in Asia. I guess you had a great holiday with your sister. Let's go hiking you like if you revisit Seoul next time. More

Thank you for your kind reviewing. I remember having a glass of homemade black beer with you at one of my favorite restaurants in Hongdae area. The bitter beer tasted sweet thanks to the chef's knack. Happy and Healthy and Peaceful Lunar New Year! More

Sleeping Strawberry is like my second home in Seoul. The host, UE, makes this happen with her caring kindness! It's ideal for those who are both interested in Eco issues and chic shops around Hongik Univ. I already miss the organic toast with various flavor and apple jam every morning I had for breakfast.

Ingrid! Thank you for your good review. Sleeping Strawberry is not like your home but now your home. As soon as the threshed rice you and me cutted in Gwangwha Island is delivered, I will make rice. I wish I could share the cooked brown rice with you. See you ^.* More

Long time no see! You visited Sleeping Strawberry in the middle of winter. Do you remember the tour of Secret Garden of Changdeok Palace? I caught a cold after the tour in the freezing day. It's soooo hot in summer of Seoul. It's getting hotter as a result of global warming with the year. Nowadays we go hiking most weekends... More
