I booked for single room and they gave me a really big room! The guesthouse seems newly renovated or very well-maintained. Toilet is clean and functional. Love the breakfast provided, hoped that they could start breakfast earlier at 6am or something because if we go for day tours, we need to leave very early. Does not have elevator, but can try asking host to help you with luggage. :) The TV didn't seem to work but I was not bothered by it. Very near to Hongik station and there's many restaurants in vicinity.

It’s near Hongik Univ station so easy to visit some places you like in Seoul. The room is small but clean. I would like to stay in again if I have any chances to visit to Seoul, Korea in the future ^^^

The guesthouse is 7 mins walk from the Hongik Metro station exit 3. 5 mins away from some of the best and affordable food+drinking places.The rooms are perfect size and clean and neat environment provided all the time. The owner was kind enough to provide me space to keep a bag while I traveled the other cities. Would anyday choose this place for it's location over anywhere else in seoul.

Location's good, only 10min walk from Hongdae Station Exit 3. They provide a youtube video for direction to find the place, very thoughtful! And they sent me emails about my room number, door password beforehand so its very convenient because they reception staff is not 24hr. That way you can just check yourself in no matter what time you arrive. I stayed in 4-bed-female only room and the room is nice with private bathroom in it. There are aircon, hair dryer and BIG refrigerator in the room! They provides towel, soap, shampoo and toothpaste. The downside is this place has 4 floors and no elevator. So if your room is at 4th floor like me and your luggage is heavy, its kinda pain in the *ss bringing it to the room 😅. And they also dont have locker in the room so even tho it might be safe but I think its wise if you dont left your luggage unlock while you go out. Other than that, this place is awesome, it has water dispenser every 2 floors I think, so you dont have to go all the way to the kitchen if you're thirsty. They provides iron and ironing board, tissue and trash bag at accessible place so you can use/take them anytime you need. The dining space is cozy and for breakfast they provide coffee, tea, 2 kinds of cereals, milk, bread, butter, jam, and boiled eggs. They have microwave too in the kitchen. So I'd love to stay here again but I hope they can install an elevator in the future 😁
