It was very comfortable. Breakfast was included in the fee. Off Season, it's less expensive. and it's quite popular among tourists. The staff often changes... More

My friend and I decided to stay here because a friend of ours recommended it. We found it fine from Hongik station with a little help from Google maps, about a 10-15min walk depending on how much luggage you're bringing with you. The manager was friendly and very accommodating, especially when we ran late at check out. It's in a... More

I was not able to write a review after our visit to Seoul last September 2013. Since we are planning to go back again this year (2016), I can't help but to remember the good memories we had in this hotel. Studio 41st service is superb.

Room was clean and spacious, in a safe neighbourhood. walking distance to the train station, and not too far away from the city centre. Friendly managers who waited and opened the door for us even though we arrived quite late at night. Beds were comfortable, and spacious enough for 2. Quiet and no hassle check in and out.

We spent 5 nights here. The location is not too far nor near the subway station. The staffs are friendly and kind. A very homely environment. This hostel does not have lifts, so if you're carry heavy and bulky luggages, be prepared to climb up the stairs. It has a total of four storeys. I had bulky and heavy luggage,... 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.
