I came to stay here for 2 nights for a stopover on my journey. Seoul itself was too cold for my taste but the place was heartwarming. Especially the manager Sabrina made the stay worth it, you don't see a manager as kind and nice as her really often! Definitely recommend staying there if you are in Seoul, the connection...

Eventhough I arrived after check in time, Sabrina still welcomed me into the hostel. The wifi worked great and the cold water tap was nice. But most of all the location is wonderful. Close to many places to eat and drink and shopping unti late at night.

I stayed in more than 10 hostels in Korea in three years, and i can easily say that Dustin Guesthouse is the best. This was my third time here. Very friendly environment, clean space, and great location. Dustin and Sabrina are very helpful.

I had a great time during my stay at Dustin's, much thanks to the great atmosphere in the common room which filled up with cool people and fun conversation every evening. The location of the guest house is very close to a subway station which makes transportation convenient, and Hongdae's streets offer a lot in the ways of restaurants, street...

There is a reason why I chose to return to Dustin Guest House on my second time in Seoul. Not only is the location perfect, stepping out of the hostel you find yourself situated in the heart of Hongdae, but the cherry on the cake is the warm welcome and friendly environment. Only 5 minutes walk to Hongdae Univ. station,...

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.
