3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Stay there for 4 nights. Very near to the Hoegi Station, a less than 5 mins walk. Express check out. Helpful staff. Only good wifi connection near the lift. Each room has different furniture, beds are not at the same size. We booked three rooms and turn out that 3 beds in 3 rooms were in different size. General cleansing in the rooms, I mean only change the small towels and no big towel is provided. No swipe of floor. The selling point is just near the station and cheap.

Situated an easy walk to Hoegi Station (line # 1), this small hotel is great value. I needed somewhere central and cheap for a two day visit to Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, and Hoegi Coop Residence was perfect. When I first arrived, I complained about the smell of cigarettes in my room, and they happily moved me to another room immediately and with no fuss.The manager and staff were stil helpful with advice about transport and sights. Thanks.

The rooms are small but don't feel too closet like. The small bathroom wasn't Hilton hygiene standard, but passed my own fairly high standard. The shower was strong and hot, but take your own products. The bed was OK by Korean standards, the sheets and pillows were good quality, but I will never understand why Koreans only use one sheet. The little kitchen is a bonus, but does not provide any utensils or cooking gear. Also, the window opened, which I like. And the double glazing on the windows made it was quiet from street and train noise at night.

I will stay here again. Thanks team Hoegi!

The only good thing about our 5 nights stay in this hotel was the location. It's very close to Hoegi subway station (within walking distance in less than 5 minutes) with convenience store, Daiso, Gong Cha, Tom & Toms Coffee, and a number of restaurants (Korean & Japanese) located just a stone away.
- From Incheon International Airport, take the AREX Non-stop Express Train to Seoul Station (about 40 - 45 minutes). Thereafter at Seoul Station, take Line 1 (Blue Line) to Hoegi. It is 10 stops from Seoul Station to Hoegi Station.

This was not our 1st time to Seoul and we were really disappointed with the room:

1) We had a double bedroom and it was really a small room with cramped toilet. The major thing was the housekeeper wasn't doing his / her job properly. Room was dusty with traces of hair and the mini kitchen was dirty with cooking stains.

2) Even if we requested for housekeeping everyday, we still came back with dusty floor and desk. The only thing the housekeeper did is washed the toilet (briefly), changed the toilet roll, and threw the rubbish (they didn't even threw it on that 1st day). No vacuum the floor, folding the quilt, or cleaning the kitchen whatsoever.

3) No toilet amenities. They only provide you with 2 hand towels so bring your own essentials. There are 2 slippers for room and toilet respectively.

It was an overall dissatisfied stay. Not recommended and no 2nd time.

My husband and I stayed there for three nights around February this year. The room was small, yet cozy. As it was during autumn, a heated floor really help made us felt so comfortable. Our favorite is the microwave inside the room as it is easy for us to use it to heat food.. especially instant rice and canned food. It really saved us from having to go wandering around to look for halal food.

The location is superb. The nearby area was a bit dirty, yet acceptable. A lot of food stall and shops there. Convenience store is just a few steps away from the hotel. The room, I would say the cleanliness is average. It is recommended for budget traveller or backpackers who is not so fussy about the room as they are not going to be in the room longer than sightseeing outside.

really convenient location, just 3mins walk from Hoegi Station....there are lots of convenience stores around and a whole street of restaurant and food stalls(but obviously not for tourists, only for locals) However,the streets around are really dirty, and there is a construction site nearby. Facility inside the room is really poor, the TV is very small (even smaller than my laptop), the chair is dirty and nearly broken, the bathroom is tiny and gets all wet when you take a shower....the bed is comfortable but the blanket..not really clean with tiny hairs on it. There is a stove but no cooking utensil nor eating utensil, so the stove is basically, useless. I won't stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the corridors have view of the Hoegi Station and trains passing by

me and my friend stayed there for 3 nights, below is the good and bad things:
Good: the location is very good, just 3-4 mins walk from Hoegi Station. Exit 1, go straight a bit then turn left. Many restaurants, convenience stores around.
Bad: the bedroom is not clean (i found some hairs on the floor, bed, bathroom which disgusted me, we cleaned the bed a bit before sleep), no wifi, no hair dryer, the TV doesn't work properly.
The staff is nice but he doesn't speak English.
I would recommended this so-called hotel to budget traveler only. To be frank i won't stay there again
