Seoul i Guesthouse

Reviewed August 14, 2011

so I met some cool people there but the thing is when I try to think of the exact good things about this hostel I couldnt really tell..except the bathrooms.

I was there at eight but they said the check in time was 9 so I sent em email saying I would be there at eight to make sure somebody would open the door for me, they said OK..
but then when I arrived (with the heavy rain and storm outside) in front of the doorstep the door was locked and I couldnt get in. I was lucky enough that one of the traveller woke up and get the door for me otherwise I would probably have to wait forever.

There was no first impression about this hostel.
The first footstep I got in there were SO MANY SHOES and it SMELLS REALLY BADLY.
omg I couldnt even explain this. this hostel is messed up.

So I got a femake dorm room. The bed was ok. the room is not ok its very tiny.
people tend not to turn on the fan (or air cond.) at night...I couldnt breath properly since I felt like having the air circulated all the time for my sleep.

The awesome thing about this hostel is free breakfast which is eggs and toast.
and THE BATHROOMs! My fav. one is the one near the private room downstairs.

Room Tip: maybe try to get a private room?

I've been there twice. But host is change, new host is much better and so friendly.
We have told a lot and he brought me to Korean restaurent with other guest.
I've got a lot information and learned Korean manner in the restaurent. Definitely, I will be there again.

My very first home in Korea is also the filming location of the movie My Tutor Friend Lesson II. Although this is my first hanok stay & I haven't tried other hanok yet, I still recommend this guesthouse because this is a very nice & neat hanok and the owners are very very kind and accommodating (just follow the guesthouse rules ^^...) that I felt I was part of their home in my 2 weeks stay there.

You must definately select Seoul i Guesthouse as your choice of stay in Seoul, Korea. The staffs were friendly and approachable. They had took the initiative to help us to arrange reservation for our travel itinery. In general, we felt cozy living there.

Room
We were happy with the room arrangement as we were given a family room consisting of four beds with an additional add-on bed. There were three big wardrobes, a security box, and a little bin. It gives a traditional korean culture setting.

Internet Access
There are two desktops with fast internet connection speed which enables guests to use from 8am to 12midnight. Guests can easily access to internet and connect through skype services too!

Kitchen
The kitchen is absolutely fabulous. We were totally amazed that the kitchen was fitted with a nice cozy bench, a huge refridgerator, water cooler, pots, pans, and kitchen utensils. It has practically everything you need. Also, washing machine and dryer are also available.

Living room
The living room is the place which makes the place cozy. We love the beanies especially!

Location
Lastly, the location is really good I must say. It is only 8 mins walking distance from Hongik Univ Stn. People who are staying with Seoul i Guesthouse should definately hail for a cab if you are carrying many luggages. It is only approximately 3000 won!
