This is my 4th stay at Studio 41st. The reason why I keep coming back is because the place is just lovely & homely. The rooms are clean & The staff are super friendly and they make you feel right at home. Though it was difficult to find it at first but after a few walks it's just minutes to Hongik University subway station & the infamous Hongdae area. Thank you Sun, Cream & Adrian for your warm hospitality. Keep up the good work guys.

Stayed: January 2014, traveled with friends

Studio 41st is a charming spot away from crowds. Clean and well-kept, it is a comfortable place to return to after all that walking about. Although in freezing winter, it feels a little of a walk to get to the hostel from the subway. Nonetheless, the warmth of the lovely folks there more than makes up for it. Good in english, conversations with the staff were easy and they were aways smiley and willing to help.

Stayed at 41st Hostel for 2 nights with my wife and 2 kids. It's a comfortable place to rest after a long day city tour. Situated in a quite neighborhood, but with some restaurant and grocery which is very convenient for travelers. Hostel managers were all very nice to us. Lovely smiles you could find all the time. Would definitely stay there again next time to Seoul. (There's a Taiyaki鯛焼きstand on the way to subway which is really yummy, don't waste time searching others....)

This was our first time in Seoul. We decided to stay in Studio 41st as it was rated highly in TA. Booking was done smoothly over the internet and staffs responded fast to my emails. I even asked if it was snowing in Seoul, Haha! Anyway, don't worry you won't lose your direction when searching for this place. Just follow the map attached in your booking confirmation email. We did that and it took us about 15-20 minutes to reach there from Hongik subway station on foot. We arrived there at night and the ever friendly Adrian was very kind to show us the room and explain to us on how to set the heater temperature etc. The double room was appropriate and was enough for the two of us. The room had a washing machine, stove, fridge, IPTV and super fast WiFi and wired internet connection. Definitely plus points! We never missed having breakfast at the comfy common room and if we did missed breakfast we would always hang out having hot coffee upon returning from our daily trips. The hostel managers would be able to help with arrangements for DMZ visits, musical shows (Nanta, Jump etc) and even the Trickeye Museum and offer you some discounts on ticket prices. And since we didn't arranged our Trickeye visit via the hostel, we didn't get the discount ~ LOL~ Maybe next time :)

Overall, this hostel is an excellent choice if you'd like a quiet stay in a residential neighborhood with good access to the subway system. And by the way, along the route there are shops to drop by for a quick grocery shopping. Would definitely recommend this to other TA forumers. Special note of thanks to the team - AJ, Adrian and Sun who always goes the extra mile when we were there (i.e. arranging for breakfast to be sent to our rooms when we had early morning trips and ensuring we had a good bibimbap on the DMZ trip) Hope to see you guys again!
