Stayed at Duriworld for 7 nights last October 2014. There were 11 of us in our group and stayed at the 2 dorm rooms. We were all very satisfied with our stay. The rooms and the whole place were always clean including the shared bathroom. Beds are very comfortable and the rooms have enough space for all of us to... More

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..

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

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.
