After reading great reviews, and not wanting to spend too much money on accommodations, we decided on Guesthouse The Hill. First, my email exchanges with the owner were extremely efficient and payment was easy (paypal deposit and remainder payment in cash USD). This hostel is brand new so it's super clean and very modern! In the morning, complimentary boiled eggs,... More

My friends and I lived there for 6 nights, we had great experience there. Mr Kidae and his father are both very nice. We bought many snacks from the nearby myeongdong mini mart and arranged for delivery (the mini mart provide free delivery once you hit certain quota) for the next day. The next day, when we came back, the... More

Only 5 mins from the metro. Very close to the main shopping district Myeongdong in Seoul. Lots of good restaurants nearby. We really enjoyed one of the restaurants nearby called Shin ui joo. Also close to the Nanta theatre which is a great experience. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a bit small.

The guesthouse is in a very convenient location, just a few minutes walk, you get to Myeongdong train station and a few minutes walk uphill you reach the Namsan Cable Car to take you to... More

This guest house located on the hill and you need to walk uphill for around 10-15 minutes before you reached. And if you stayed on the 3rd or 4th floor, prepared to climb several stairs before finally reach your room. The room is quite cozy (although quite small) but we really had a comfortable sleep during our 7 nights stay.... More

We (4 adults and 1 kid) stayed here for 6 nights in October and it was fantastic. From the start of email enquiry till the end of the stay, Mr Baek has been quick and took care of everything. It is located at one of the best location with Myeong-Dong and N Tower within walking distance. The room condition is... More

We stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights. It never took us too long to locate this house. When we reach myeongdong, we just follow the map given by Mr. Baek (the owner) thru email. We needed to walk uphill to reach the house but it was never a problem. When we get to the house, it was Mr.... More

I stayed here for two nights mid-September. The location is excellent as it's just a few minutes' walk from Myeong-Dong metro station and it's also peaceful (save for talking) given that the bustling Myeong-Dong downtown area is so close. The guest house is well located for the airport shuttle bus. The owner is very friendly and helpful, his English is... More

We stayed at Guesthouse the Hill for 5 days on August. Mr Baek is a really nice person and he is very helpful from introducing us to good eating places and gave us a lift to Toyoko inn Hotel (since it was raining at that time and we need to go and get taxi with our lugages). Thank you for... More
