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

Not only that, the last minute plan... More

Perfect place to stay if you're looking to get around Seoul. You'll have an easy access to the subway (about a two-minute walk from Hongik University) so communicating is a breeze. It's a walking distance from Hongdae where you can get the best street food and feel of the Korean youth culture.
