Lovely guesthouse! If you are expecting a fancy full service hotel then you will be disappointed but for what you are paying Ewha is one of the best guest houses/hostels I’ve stayed in. The room is small but very clean and comfortable. The location is excellent, only a few minutes walk to a subway station, buses directly out the front of the hotel and the heart of myeongdong literally 1 min around the corner. The bed is a little firm for my liking but I often find that is the case in Asia. The pillows were very comfortable though. The windows are double layered keeping the room nice and warm when we visited Seoul in winter and also blocking out all noise which is fantastic considering it’s busy location. The bathroom is very clean, compact but with everything you need. The bathroom is a wet room, but again very common in Asia and we had no issues with it, it is a practical space saving measure. You are provided with body soap, shampoo and ‘rinse’ which I think is conditioner but I didn’t try it as I brought my own. The body wash we did use and that was nice though. They also provide a bar of soap and body sponges. Two bath towels, two hand towels and a bath mat. There are also room slippers and shower shoes but again we brought our own so didn’t use them. The room has a TV, little desk, mini fridge and excellent wifi. Room cleaning is every second day and on request but as we were only there three nights we didn’t need new towels or sheets so we simply didn’t request the service. There is an elevator to the rooms and a hot and cold water filter machine on each level which was a nice touch. Breakfast is downstairs (no elevator) - the steps are very steep so may be an issue if you have mobility issues but we were fine. Breakfast consisted of coffee, tea, juice, milk, toast with a number of spreads, ham and cheese, boiled egg, packet soup and packet ramen. Very simple but very reasonable. You do your own dishes at breakfast which is standard for a hostel/guesthouse but they have good sponges, soap and drying racks so it really isn’t a bother at all. The staff were the highlight of our stay, they were all very friendly and helpful, helping us print tickets, reserve tables and restaurants and suggestions good places to eat where local Koreans rather than tourists go! Particularly we would like to thank Sein/Sean (sorry not sure of the spelling). Because he was so lovely, always greeted us with a big smile and gave us a fantastic recommendation for Korean BBQ nearby and we had a delicious dinner! Thank you! …
We arrived quite earlier than nomal check-in time but the owner allowed us to leave the luggages while the room is being prepared. They brought them into the room when we came back after lunch. Although the owner is korean, she can understand and speak english. The room we booked is a quadruple room with private en-suite bathroom. Since they provided kitchen, microwave and refrigerator, we easily cook our food bought from 7-Eleven at the next building. Free wifi is really a brownie point from them! The heater worked well and kept us warm all day and night. The location is very strategic since it is located next to Hongik Station. Definitely will go here when we go to Seoul in the future!!
Have splendid time there. The landlord was very helpful and attentive to our needs the location is very near to Hongik Univ station exit 3. Esy check in and check out. . Will definetely stay there again.
We booked a 2 double bedroom for four of us, but due to our room has airconditioner problem, we have been moved to another room in 17th floor at another building. The location is just about 5 mins walking distance from Exit of Hongyik Univ Station. No drinking water is provided but you can easily purchase from 7-11 downstairs. The new room is clean and spacious, it also has a small kitchen with all utensils if you want to cook something. Note: It has a different name in other booking website, but the owner is same (Adam & Eve) They are so kind-hearted and attentive to our queries :)
The location of this hostel is very close to the Exit 2 Hongik University Subway station. The hostel building alos very near with convenience store, and Hongdae street. The owner is very friendly, they will give the face mask at your last night there, feel like our own home, the space of the room is big enough (6 persons room) and 6 luggages. Very comfortable bed, have privacy.
