I also had the opportunity to meet their mum and Marie's daughters, and the whole family welcomed me like a friend. Kpopstay is located within a 10 min...

I've had good and bad experiences with accommodations in general, but I have to say that Kpopstay ranks among the best ones. Mark and Marie were very hospitable. I stayed with them for 8 days and was never dissatisfied from checking in to checking out. It is conveniently located in Hongdae where there's plenty of establishments open 24/7. It's also...

Thanks for the lovely weekend stay at KPopstay Mark! I never really thought that a hostel set-up could allow for a decent amount of privacy, yet at KPopstay there is a perfect balance between hanging out with other guests and enjoying your own space as well.

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.
