I loved my 4 nights stay at Sleeping Strawberry. Ui was great and we went on a spectacular hike that just happened to incorporate walking by/through the house from Coffee Prince! The guest house has three rooms - one with 3 bunkbeds, and two rooms with a bunkbed set each. If you want to spend all your time partying in Hongdae, or if you want to spend your days quietly exploring old and new Seoul, this is a great place that will make you feel warm and welcome. p.s. very happy with the free breakfast every morning and random free meals!

Thank you for enjoying my home-made bread with your whole heart while staying at Sleeping Strawberry. I believe you can also make your home-made bread easily if you apply properly the recipe I sent to you. I'd like to taste bread you bake using Turkish native whole wheat flour. - Ms. UE

Sleeping strawberry is such a nice place to stay in Seoul if you are look for a nice home-y place to retreat to at the end of the day. Ue is a lovely host and provided a delicious and healthy vegan breakfast everyday. It was left out for the guests to eat when they were ready which suited me perfectly. I highly recommend for eco-conscious women who are traveling and want to be around like-minded people!

The name of this guest house already caught my attention in the first place. Being a Female only guest house and vegan food easily accessible around the vicinity of the guest house is an plus point for a vegetarian person like me. The guest house is located in a quiet residential area and very convenience place for traveller to travelling around as it is located near Subway ( Hongdae subway) and within 5- 8 minutes walking distance is another subway ( Sinchon). The owner is a very friendly and helpful person. She prepared delicious breakfast and conduct Korean cooking class. I stay here for 10 days and overall I enjoyed staying in the Eco friendly guest house with clean and cosy room.
