Very clean, warm and cosy place. Short distance from the subway lines. Staffs are very friendly and makes you feel so at home. Many thanks especially to one of the staff, Sue, who always helped us with many of our queries on where to go and what to do.

We stayed here for 2 nights, then went to Japan, and then came back for another 4 nights. They stored one large luggage during this week, which was really nice. The hotel is clean and comfortable. We had a private bathroom and shower. The breakfast was nice, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Especially Sue! :) This place... More

This guest house is clean, conveniently located and very silent at night. The included breakfast is limited to a choice of cereals, jams, peanut butter, processed meat and cheese slices, toasts and some grated vegetables—but you can also cook fresh eggs any way you want. The room and towels are refreshed every day. One complimentary laundry bucked (washed and dried)... 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.
