I came here and stayed two nights at the dorm. It was really comfortable and clean, safe and the breakfast was a little shy, but delicious. Fantastic location for shopping, bars and eateries. The staff here is awesome too. Don't miss the chance to stay here!

It made our trip that much better, coming back to a clean, comfy room and waking up with bagels and tea. It was just outstanding...

Staying in Sinsa / Garosugil

Neighborhood Profile
Sinsa / Garosugil
Trendy, chic, fashionable – these are just some of the words that sum up Sinsa and the neighborhood of Garosugil within it. In particular, Garosugil has emerged recently to be one of Seoul’s most popular neighborhoods; from the latest haute cuisine to what’s next in haute fashion, the restaurants, boutiques, and shops here tend to spark trends quickly spreading nationwide. It’s a magnet for celebrities, fashion industry titans, and Seoul’s elite and elite-aspiring, although some claim soaring real estate prices have led to a decrease in Garosugil’s independent charm. Still, it continues to remain one of the hottest and hippest areas in Seoul, so it’s best when visiting to make sure you’re dressed and looking the part.
