We loved the lively street food scene and atmosphere right outside the hanok, yet the street where the hanok was in was quite quiet. Location was fantastic. The room was extremely clean and cozy. It was small but intimate. The owner is a sweet lady who didn't speak much English but tried her best to understand our requests. Only downside...

Very clean, pleasant, and comfortable. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I've only ever stayed in the dormitory, which is co-ed. There are four sets of bunk beds and a loft. The climate control is good so the dorm is always at a comfortable temperature. The 6th floor dorm has a balcony with a nice view of the city....

Kimchi Guesthouse was extremely clean, affordable and located very centrally near lots of the major sights in Seoul (Gyungbokgung and Insa-dong). Our room was small but cozy with a strong AC. The shared bathrooms were spotless. If you want to stay at a traditional hanok guesthouse but don't have the cash to splash out for the more expensive ones in...

I really love this place!!! It's a perfect stay for those that want to experience more of the cultural life Korea. It's centrally located and just walking distance from 2 different metro lines. The rooms are cozy. The manager/owner is very kind too. I will definitely come back here in a next visit to Korea! #LovinSeoul

The guesthouse is located at a very convenient location, 3min walk to the subway. It's hard to find but you can call to ask the guest to pick you up from the nearest subway. The room is rather cosy but warm, stayed during winter over Christmas and it was warm in the room. Definitely a good experience to tradtional stays.

“Rooms other than #2 and #3 (which are adjacent to the living room and the open kitchen) are quieter. It is suggested to keep the room doors shut at all times, fall or winter, otherwise the heated floor will get too hot to sleep on.”
