Room was clean and facilities available were simple enough for me - solo traveller. The guesthouse is on a slope so be prepared to do a little climb. Otherwise it is at a good location, quiet but yet not far from eateries and shopping.

Stayed here for a few days while in Seoul and loved it. Close to Myeongdong station so very convenient for public transport. 'The Hill' is literal as it's quite a walk up a hill to get there. Check-in was easy and the host was extremely friendly and helpful. You can help yourself to bread, toaster etc. at any time in the day not just at breakfast time. Wi-Fi in every room which worked well. Free laundry facilities which was really convenient. Only downside was that we were told check-out was at 10 but got asked to leave our room at 9:45 by a cleaner whilst we were eating breakfast. Also my pull-out bed didn't have a mattress cover just a blanket which slipped off every time I rolled over. Not massive downsides though and otherwise we had an excellent stay so would definitely come again.

The owner was really friendly and nice. The location of the guesthouse is perfect, it is close to Namsan hill and the shopping area Myeongdong. To get to the guesthouse, you need to go on a tiring uphill walk. There is also a halal restaurant nearby, which is convenient for Muslim travellers. There is also a kitchen at the guesthouse, and the breakfast menu include white bread, jam, butter, eggs, tea and coffee. Toaster and induction cooker were also provided. You can also get free flow of hot/warm/cold water. The room was small but cozy. Room amenities include shower gel, shampoo and hairdryer. However, only small face towels were provided. There was no facial tissues either. The room that I stayed in has an attached bathroom and in-room wifi. However, only one device could connect to the room wifi. Not sure if it's because of a limit or because of device problem. I also wish that there are more plug points in the room.

4 reasons why I love my stay here and will definitely be back when I visit Seoul again: 1) Location – It’s near Myeongdong Station so it is easier for you to go around Seoul. The stop for airport bus is also near so you can opt to take the bus to/from Incheon Airport. It is also near Myeongdong area where the shops and street food are. It is walking distance to the cable car station going up to NSeoul Tower. The only downside of this place is that it is located uphill and it will really test how fit you are. 2) Clean and cozy room – Our room is small but it’s clean and really cozy. It has the basics like A/C, hot shower, TV, and comfortable bed. 3) Budget – A clean and cozy room in a very nice location at a cheap price with a strong wifi and free breakfast, what more can you ask for? 4) Accommodating owner, who patiently answered our questions and concerns.

Stayed here for 4 nights and the room was clean, comfortable and fit for purpose. The only downside of the room was the bathroom which was a but small. Breakfast was alright if you were up early but if you were up later it got a bit crowded. Location was good and quiet. Good place to stay for a few nights.
