I stayed here for my short trip to Seoul last November and really enjoyed it. The hotel is quiet, clean, in a good neighborhood, and easy to find, not far from the Hongdae metro stop. I got a single room in a two bedroom suite which included a kitchen and shared bathroom (there were three other guests at the time... More

The location is very convenient as it is near Airport Express and subway stations. The manager Suzy and host Lynette are very warm and kind. We even get to... More

This guest house is relatively close to the action of Hongdae and the park and the staff were incredibly friendly! The rooms are tidy and clean and so are the bathrooms. A really comfortable stay for a really decent price! I would definitely stay there again.

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.
