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.... More

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.

I got very lucky finding this place. This was a very good surprise to find this guesthouse. Sleeping Strawberry is a small guesthouse in Hongdae, close to several universities so the area is very lively with many shops, bars and restaurants. It can be busy at night, yet the guesthouse itself is located in a quiet street so you will... More

Great location, lovely hostess. It's between Hongdae and Sinchon, in a safe area. I would stay here again. It's easy to get around Seoul from here and there is a great vegan bakery just around the corner.

I stayed at Sleeping Strawberry for a week over Christmas. This guesthouse is really cozy in winter, especially thanks to the ondol.

I found the Sleeping Strawberry while searching for vegetarian hostels in Seoul. I quickly discovered that it is more than just a vegetarian-friendly hostel: it is a community of fun, engaged, brilliant, and kind people from Seoul. The hostel itself is in a very convenient location near Hongik University, very easily accessible by metro. It's clean and comfortable, and has... More

I was so impressed with the story you became a vegetarian. You spotted my guesthouse in the internet to travel Korea as a vegan. So did I. Two years ago, I searched vegan restaurants by internet and then enjoyed vegan food at some restaurants while traveling Kyoto in Japan. It was one of amusing methods of traveling. You informed me...

Thank you for your great review! I used also to find my second home sometimes while traveling in and out of the country. I was more of a friend than a guest/client to them. Despite the differences between us, there's one thing in common between us. It's that we are women travelers. And we are concerned with the sustainable lifestyle.... 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.
