Namu guesthouse was warm and cozy. We felt well taken care of and we learnt a lot about Korean culture by conversing with the staffs. Namu was clean and quiet. Being in a residential area, it was great for a good night rest. It's also within walking distance (15mins) from hongdae station, which makes it convenient to travel around Seoul... More

Namu is very friendly and she helped us a lot with our trip. I like everything in the house especially the food and drink in the fridge. The house is very closed to the Exit 3 at Line 2 and Hongik University. So many shops are nearby. 我们来首尔是为了报道AAJA,没想到这里民宿如此好。Namu人很好,很关心我们的生活,有问题都找她。厨房里有好多吃的喝的,早餐自己动手超简单。洗衣服有洗衣机,晾衣架,很方便。旅馆离地铁二号线几个出口都很近,附近是弘益大学,晚上有街头表演,还可以购物,吃美食。真的很舍不得这个地方,以后有机会再来。

The guesthouse location is closed to Bus Terminal (6 minutes). It is very easy to take bus to other attractive point. There are many restaurants in Korea style nearby. The bed room is clean and well maintain. It is highly recommended guesthouse.

The best decision of my Korea stay was to stay in Namu Guesthouse. What you can expect is a cozy and quiet home, with wonderful hospitality provided by the owner, Yeowon and her staff. They infuse the house with warmness and a lovely energy that is infectious. I think this is what raises Namu above the rest of the accommodations... More

Namu Guesthouse was my first love in Seoul. Between exploring the vast and impressive city of Seoul, this guesthouse pushes all the right buttons to get some needed homely comfort. I often found myself relaxing in the living room for much longer times than i planned. If you are travelling for a longer time, or you're just a family person,... More

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.
