“Excellent Guesthouse!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

I would definitely stay here again! The guesthouse was clean, a great value, and a five minute walk away from a major subway stop. The owner was very friendly, and even let us use his phone to make local calls. There were computers on each floor and breakfast items and coffee in the morning. Couldn't have asked for anything else!

We loved our trip to Seoul, and staying at Hi Guesthouse made it that much better! It was well located without being loud, nicely decorated, comfortable, and the owner was incredibly helpful and friendly--he even helped us call the Japanese embassy on his cellphone. We picked it on a whim after seeing the positive reviews and couldn't agree more with them!

Each time I have been to Seoul I stayed at Tae's Hi Guest'. The house is brand new and very well furnished and decorated.
The Guesthouse is well located, not far (10 min walking) from Hongik University area (the place if you like to go out and party in Seoul). It has direct access to both Incheon & Gimpo Airport by comuter train.
If you rent the 2 bedrooms on the 3rd floor you will have your own small private apartment with kitchen and balcony and private bathroom.
Tae will always try to make your stay a success.
The best choice in the category in Seoul - good value for money.

the guesthouse is the best combination between location, cost, and cool environment... two metro stations in walking distance. Guest TaeHwan Lee will make you feel more like in a friend's house. He can help you as English Korean translator for common needs which is very helpful. Ask him for restaurants and night clubs... He knows everything and if you are lucky he'll bring you there.

I stayed Hi guest house with my Japanese friends for 6 days on August.
It's close to Hongdae station so you can go to the airport directly.
I loved people I met in this guest house. They were so nice and kind.
