“Will probably come back.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I have been here twice. Loved it the first time but was disappointed the 2nd time round. It was not as polished( place was not as clean and as well kept as before)as before too many junk of a furniture and the change of beds-harder beds. Overall for a perfect location and just for sleeping, the price was slightly abit steep than other guesthouses. The best part? I get to meet other travellers and practically the whole place to ourselves.

Great place, great rates, great people. Really cool backpackers in an excellent location. close to Hongik University area & subway. Seems to attract other cool travellers also.

I may be biased since when I stayed only a few people were there, and I had a 6-bed dormitory for myself, but I enjoyed my stay there. The landlord is very helpful, and can book tickets for tourist attractions such as the DMZ, the beds are okay for the price, the house is clean and not too noisy.

A bad point would be the bathroom: it's small and there are only 2 in the whole house. In a 5-minute walk you can go to a public bath, which is much nicer and convenient.

Room Tip: Be careful if you order a room for 2: it's one big bed and you can't have two separate ones.

It's at a very convenient location, 10 minutes away from metro and airport bus station. There are many restaurants around metro station area.

It can get very busy over the weekend at the guesthouse. If your room is next to the bathroom, you might have a trouble sleeping as there are too many ppl in and out from 6am to next morning 3am. There is a thin wall between the room and bathroom.

The place is old from outside and inside. There are only two bathrooms, toilet and shower are together. You can imagine how busy it can be. Once I waited for one hour, but still couldn't get access to the bathroom and had to find a toilet on street. There is no shower curtain to separate the toilet and shower so that the whole bathroom is totally WET after someone took a shower.

It's cold in winer in Seoul, but the owner doesn't turn on the floor heat often. It's freezing inside the room. The small heater is just not powerful enough to heat the room.

Compare to other guesthouse, their price is a bit more expensive than others so that my expection might be a little bit high.

If you are a budget traveller who can sleep through the noise and don't mind the awful bathroom situation, I would recommend this one location wise. Otherwise, look for something else.

it was a nice and cute hostel. the owners were almost never around. clean for the most part. but def had a SERIOUSLY BAD mosquito problem in the bedrooms. in one night alone i got bit over 30 times. and i only managed to sleep for 3 hours due to that fact. those buggers were vicious.
