We had our Seoul escapade last November 2012.. We were supposed to book another hostel but unfortunately (due to visa problems) we booked late and the hostel was full. So we asked for suggestions from the owner of the hostel, he gladly suggested, goldenpond.
Location: Looking at the website, it was really good because the MRT is near. And the location is really surprisingly fun! Especially at night, when you can see students or couples having some drinks or shop at the night market. It is also near some establishments, like, supermarkets, cosmetics shops, convenience stores.
Stay: We were greeted by the owner when we arrived at the hostel. She is so kind. She led us to our room. BTW, our room is separated from the main bldg. Somewhat like an apartment. The room is good. We have our own kitchen and washing machine. The hot and cold shower works fine. The downside of this room is that the bldg has no elevator. It was difficult for us because we have brought heavy luggage with us. But kindly enough, the owner helped us carry our luggage.
Sleep: The bldg. was quiet. As in totally. It seems that no one's renting the whole apt but us!
Cleanliness: Everyday someone cleans our room. The sheets weren't changed when we were there. But I am sure they were new when we arrived.
Overall, staying at Golden Pond is a breeze!
