I really enjoy my stay here. Sanga, the manager, is very warm and helpful. The location is great, you just have to walk to go to any shop, restaurants, cafes, or even club. The room is very clean, also the shared bathroom. I will be back here again next time i visit Seoul.

It's always a GREAT first impression when the person who greets you is very down-to-earth, relaxed and accommodating. At first, I was iffy about the location (you kind of have to walk down an alleyway to get to there), but once I met the girl who worked there I felt totally at ease. I like that the rooms are separated... More

We love Pumpkin Guesthouse! It was very easy to find, and close to everything. It was about a 5-10 minute walk from Hongik Univ. subway exit, and has many shops, restaurants and clubs around. They were able to accommodate a group of us very easily. The facilities are clean, sheets are clean, beds are comfortable. It was an all around... More

I am very glad to share my great experience stayed in Pumpkin House with you all. The location is in the hottest and most energetic area, Hong University in South Korea.

Excellent guesthouse with very friendly staff.. The Pumpkin located very hot place at Hongik University area.. The managers are friendly and helpful, and gave us a lot of travel tips.

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.
