I have been booking a bed/room at FunFun for the past year. I live in Daegu teaching English, so once a month or more I head to Seoul for the weekend. I couldn't suggest a better place for a solo traveler or a handful group of friends to stay. This is the reason why I have so many friends in... More

Nice spot in the middle of Hongdae. It's close to the subway (3 min walk) and the night life and restaurants are just around the corner. The place is really small and cozy which means that you get to know all the guests! The staff is also super friendly and helpful. They clean every day and all the facilities are... More

We stayed here last February. The place is walking distance from Hongik university train. There is a direct line from the airport train so you can easily go to the area. The directions from the website is also easy to follow. It's situated in the vibrant, young and hip area of Hongdae near a lot of cafes and shopping areas.... More

I had a great time here. If you want to meet young people in Seoul, stay in Hongdae. Stay at Funfunstay! Location is the greatest asset of this hostel. The staff are incredibly friendly. If you are comfortable with staying in a hostel, you will have a great time.

Situated only three minutes walk from Hongdae, funfun is not only very convenient (Hongdae is a great area to stay and on a direct line from the airport), but the rooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day, there's free laundry, free breakfast, and the staff are really awesome. Overall it's a great choice, can't fault a thing, especially as it's... More

The location of the guesthouse is just great. It's a short walk from the train station but there are nice things to see along the way. For example, there's an area that hosts events like flea markets in the day and street performances at night (caught Jung Sun Ho twice, a pretty good and engaging fingerstyle guitarist). It was about... More

The guest house is very well located, the price is reasonable. The breakfast is said to be included, but is so cheap and frugal (there's about 20 slices of bread for everyone and some strawberry jam). Otherwise, some of the managers were friendly, but others didn't really feel like chatting. It is very clean and the beds are comfortable. Bring... 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.
