It's a good place to stay with friends, the cleanliness is phenomenal and the breakfast is always warm and fresh. When my friends and I went there in January we felt almost as if we were home. It's located in a great area, quite in the middle of Seoul.

Stayed here, and loved it. Really good price and great hospitality recieved from the owner Mr. Kim. The only down side is that they aren't too keen on you having visitors. Other than that, it was a lovely place to stay.

Only problem I ever had in this guesthouse was Mr Kim needs to organise room arrangements as he made a mistake with yours however I am grateful we got a discount staying there and meet so many great people. But staying at Orange Guesthouse is so much fun. The... More

Booked the family room through booking.com and although it looks very different from the picture, it was comfy. The air conditioner was too cold and the remote control provided can't be use for other purpose except for turning ON/OFF. I have problem with the toilet near to the room as the lock system is very fragile. It's not very safe... 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.
