For the price I would say this is a great choice, location wise not bad either, very near to a train station and plenty of convenience stores and food nearby. However it is very tiring if you are bringing trolley luggage and taking the train here. Travelling from the airport to the train station in front of this guesthouse will... More

Stayed at this accommodation for four days, and greatly impressed with Joey who is really helpful and very welcoming towards us! :) I've summarized the experience in two points below. The room review is solely based on double bed room with private bathroom only. Plus: 1. Near to subway station, Sookmyung Women Uni station (but you have to climb lots... More

From Sydney Australia, I stayed here for about 4 days. First time in Korea. Flight was extremely delayed and arrived 2 hours late, at 1am. With no subway trains, I walked it from Seoul station to the guesthouse. Super straight forward and easy. Travel Southward from the station. I didn't really have an itinerary planned for Seoul. The only plan... More

My friend and I booked this guesthouse pretty last minute so didn't expect much at first, but it turned out to be an excellent choice! Very convenient location, literally a few steps away from the subway station unlike many other hostels which abuse the term "walking distance" from subway stations. The room we booked had one single bed with a... More
