Located at the top of a steep hill, but not too far from the station. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Comfortable, but pretty basic, which one might expect for the price. Not luxury accommodation, but apparently clean. Some (all?) rooms need to share a bathroom, so be prepared for that.

Stay at this guesthouse for 2 night and a few nights at different accommodation. To be honest its nice and clean. Some suggestion from what i can observe during my stay in Seoul from its competitors are daily room cleaning, better towels that absorb water n moisture. To sum up all rates is quite on a high side for the... More

Good location at Myeong-dong. Futon tatami style of sleeping. Rooms are clean. The slope to the guesthouse is steep at certain location. Try the famous Namsan Pork Cutlet, very near about 3 mins walk.

I had a great first impression of Crib49 when communicating with Kristine over email about my booking. Very friendly, prompt and helpful.
