Reviews say it is beside subway. Hence you need to find out which subway, and then take AREX train to Seoul station and subway on to the right place. Use comuter train from ICN and the total cost will be no more than 5,000 won.

after i posted the question,

i read about the direction to Phil Hse.

Airport rail Incheon Intl airport -> Gimpo Intl Airport

Then change to Line #5 ( Gimpo Intl aipt -> Achasan)

Is this recommended route?

TQ

take a subway line No. 5

get off at Achasan station(next stop)

From Exit No 3

and then just turn right go stright 1 minute

you will find the ' Familt mart ' sign

another way

You can take Airport Railroad at Incheon Airport. And

transfer line 5 at Kimpo Airport.

Get off at Acha-san Station.( It will take 1hour from Hostel to Kimpo Airport.) and get out to Exit No. 3

From Exit No 3,and then just turn right go stright

How much luggage will you have? If you have anything more than a rucksack, I would avoid the subway altogether and take limo bus from airport then short taxi to hostel. Otherwise, there's probably not much of a difference time wise, although the bus will be more comfortable than subway and you'll be guaranteed a seat (and more to look at!)

I used your 2nd option ( with one luggage bag) and was fine. convininient... only when i extit at gate 3 (achasan) i didnt see the hotel and did asked people around also couldnt tell me.

As you come out the exit 3, on your left side is a resto ( with and windmill decoration). The hotel is behind the resto, walk along the road for few meters and you see the MART and the hotel.

Now, I see it takes about 90 minutes from ICN to Phil-House and also, that it's not really near anything.

Can anyone recommend a hostel type place in Hongdae or another part of Seoul where there's something going on and also a little closer to the airport?

I'll be there 3 nights.

On a previous visit I stated in Namsan Hostel, but would like to try a different area this trip.
