I'm rather satisfied with Duriworld House and I have a happy experience when staying there. First of all, their staffs are very friendly, especially Grace. She is very polite and helpful. It's very kind of her to introduce some places which are worth visiting to us. Secondly, the room is clean and comfortable. Also, I can enjoy the bathing because... More

Staying in Duriworld makes me feel absolutely relax and comfortable. It must be part of the reason why I love this summer vacation in Seoul :) The staff and owner are very very friendly, I mean.. VERY. Helpful, friendly and kind. They speak English too, so it's not too difficult for me to communicate with them with my broken Korean... More

Duriworld is good value for money in Seoul. Rooms are basic, comfortable and clean. This is a very quiet part of the Hongik University neighborhood, which is a plus, but I agree with previous comments that the door locks are very loud and the noise from the common areas gets into the rooms very easily (though the other guests when...

Duriworld is a real treasure. I was very happy to stay here. I stayed on my own and really enjoyed the communal breakfast where it's easy to meet new people. The rooms are quite basic but more than adequate, with all the facilities you need. Plus all you need to do is ask the very friendly and helpful staff in... More

I stayed at Duriworld in Hongdae for roughly a week in October 2013 and was very positively surprised by the quality of the accommodation for the relatively low price. It's located in a quiet small street and yet very close to the Hongik Univ metro station and all the attractions Hongdae has to offer. Reservation and checkin are very pleasant... More

I was so fortunate to find Duriworld House during my stay in SK. I stayed here.for 8 days (6-bed room) and made it my homebase as I travel to other part of SK. It was indeed my home away from home. I will stay here again next time and will recommend as well. Jhes (Jesshanie)

I stayed at “Duriworld House” for 7 nights during my visit to Korea in February 2014. I had been to another guesthouse a few years before but I wanted a single room this time, and spent some time searching for one. I found Duriworld and it was proved a gem. Reservation was easy. I liked Duriworld didn’t require a deposit... More

Perfect location within walking distance to hongdae district, shopping, food, and to local metro line. Staff were informative and very friendly. I think the best part of our stay was the breakfast and staying in the pororo themed family room. Clean rooms and free wifi. Thanks grace, we enjoyed our stay! Hope to see you again some day and maybe... More
