Staying in Rio house Hongdae is the best choice for both single and family travellers. The location is right next to the Hongdae metro station, which allows me to travel around easily. Yonsei and Sinchon are only in 10 minutes walk. The room is big and tidy and the price is cheap! Though Hongdae might get crazy at night, the room level is high enough to give a quiet environement.
More importantly, the house owners are extremely nice and helpful. They are eager to offer helps and organise many interesting events for guests to immerse themselves in the life in Hongdae and Korean Culture, like cycling next to Hangang river and hanging around in Hongdae area. I was travelling alone and when I dont get a partner to eat with, they brought me to try bulgogi and samgyupsal :D . The owner Mr.Yeom speaks good English and Mr. Cho is a very friendly and polite korean man.
