Stayed four nights at the Kimchee Gangnam Guest house. The location was great, the staff were really helpful and I felt totally safe as a single female traveller. As others have said, the rooms are very small and dated. My sheets were clean but they did have some old stains on… The room had a window but it was frosted...

Stay here for my first time to Seoul, really nice one and staff are helpful and friendly. Good English Close to station, and easy to walk around.

Location is perfect - easy walking distance from the subway station. For its location, the price is excellent. The single rooms are in the basement but still have windows because of the sloped terrain. If you check-in after 11:30pm, you have to let them know. When I arrived after 2am, the entrance was open, and my name was placed on...

I stayed here during mid September 2014 for two weeks in a single room, which was not bad. Like other people mention the room itself is quite small, yes indeed, but is perfect for the basic needs. Air conditioning was good, wifi was also good, the only bad thing about it is that you have to reconnect every time you...

I stayed in a single room there for 2 weeks, so it was more of a goshiwon for me than a regular guesthouse. As all goshiwons, rooms are small and offer limited amenities, but this one was not the smallest one out there. Nethertheless, it offers very good value for your money, as long as you're aware of what kind...
