Stayed here in April 2016 by myself whilst travelling Korea. Having stayed in a fair few guesthouses/hostels in Asia, Seoul i was easily one of the best. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful (even helping me to report my phone lost at a local police station after a crazy night in Hongdae!) and always had time to chat and... More

Seoul i Guesthouse was the first stop on my 4 month trip around Asia and a perfect place to start! I arrived like a zombie due to a horrific journey from the UK, the staff were very kind and even let me delay payment of my deposit until the next day when I did not have enough cash. Within 5...

Like the title says. Staff is enormously friendly and the guesthouse is clean and located on a quieter bit of hongik unit but still very central! Only one disadvantage which is the private room no. 4, located next to the reception. You can hear everything, when jet lagged not always very great. As well as the fact in the streets... More

I was travelling on my own and found this hostel. It's conveniently located near Hongik University station, so you can take a direct train from either airport. It's also very near to Hapjong, which is great for food and night life. A few stops away are the two main palaces and temples so no shortages of things to see and... More

Very friendly&helpful staffs. Place is clean all the time. The location is great, only 2-3 mins walk from Hongik station, easy to find tho. Plus there are lots of yummy local restaurants / shops / stores. I really recommend this place to all of you. And i'm gonna stay there again when I go to Seoul !

You can have toasted bread and eggs for breakfast every morning (self-serve). Situated at a very decent neighbourhood. 5 mins walk to Hongdae Station Exit 3. Convenience store nearby if you need...

At first, location of this hotel is perfect – it is right near exit 3 of Hongik Univ station, which is a good transportation hub to go anywhere. Airport KTX line also comes here. There are many dining places near hostel and just in 10min walk there is a big shopping place. The room was clean, cozy, and warm. Stuff... More

Staying in Sinchon / Ewha

Neighborhood Profile
Sinchon / Ewha
Neighboring Hongdae, the Sinchon / Ewha area by Yonsei University and Ewha Womans University is a popular student hangout spot known for its youthful jovialness. The two respective schools and their beautiful settings are among the best in Korea. As the main demographic in the area are younger students, most of the businesses cater to their tastes with price ranges to match. The plethora of things to do in the area makes it busy all through the day and night. The area around Ewha is particularly popular with women as it’s famed for its shopping and affordable hair and nail salons.
