The staff, Grace, gave us a useful map with supermarket and restaurants' location. She is helpful and kind to give us some informative advice with English! We had a bunk... More

We stayed in a twin room with its own bathroom this time. The room is at the first floor and is with good and warm circumstances. Also, the staff was very nice. We recommend people to choose this hostel.

We booked a twin bed, shared bathroom. we got it for a decent price. The distance between the airport shuttle/ train to the guesthouse is a bit far, although the location is great because it is situated in Hongdae. The major drawback we had was the size of the room and the number toilet. Staying in "Korean guesthouse set-up" was... More

I've stayed at Duriworld 6 pax female dorm for a couple of times. The dorm was great for solo traveler like me, or if you have friends checking in/out at different date(s). The hostel could get a bit stuffy and noisy (the wall is thin!) when it was full house, but otherwise, it was a good economical choice. Free breakfast... 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.
