“lovely place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2011

I had to be in Seoul for academic purpose and decided to stay a couple days more in the city. So we moved from a university dorm to this guesthouse. The location is good, though you have to walk into a small alley from subway and its a bit scary in the night. But thats about it, other things were fantastic. I stayed in a family room with four other companions of the trip, the room was clean and so was other facilities. The owner is friendly, speak really good understandable English and can give you directions to attractions in Seoul. There are computors for guest to use, also free wi-fi access. The subway is not far from the place, takes like 2 mins walk to Chungmuro station and assumably 10 mins walk to Myeongdong the famous shopping area(i didnt go there on foot, though). Near the subway station there is a bus stop for Airport shuttle that would cost you around 10000-14000 KRW within 45 mins to Incheon or Gimpo airport. Overall i love this place and consider going back again if i am in town.

Nice and clean, but cold.My friends and I stayed for 14 nights/days and it was cold in our room, especially at night. And the hosts didn't treat my friends and I well. The owner's mother is always giving us this look like she doesn't like us and is always watching our every move when she is in the living area with us. And they would come into our rooms when we are out which I don't like unless they are coming in to clean our room, which wasn't the case except one time. I didn't like the fact that they touched my stuff. One time we were sleeping and the guy (owner) came in with his keys and my friend was up so he got spooked, how wrong is this.Overall I would recommend this place if it's the only place you can find for your budget of cheap places to stay, and the fact that the subway is nearby.

We came This guest house introduced by our friends and guess what,its not bad.for 54k won pernight (per room) its a very comfortable and clean.Really near the subway too (just 3 min walking)The owner can speak good english and very helpful too.they provide you with wifi (so that you can do search on your journey).At the computer place is a living room,where you can meet other members of the house and get to know them (if they are friendly enough)As this place is getting popular,i suggest you prebook it first.i Think the only thing that i least like about this place because the wall is very thin,u can hear clearly whats the member of the next room talk about.but thats all i guess..otherwise its a good place.I will stay here if i come to korea again.ps;-u can see seoul tower from this place too :)
