They give you privacy if you want privacy, if you want welcoming, and a home vibe they give you that too.
It's really whatever you want.
The host, Tae-Hwan seems to take great pains in aesthetics so by default, the guesthouse is very clean (they wash down the bathrooms every morning, vaccuum, change your bedsheets!(forthosewithlongerthanacoupledaysstays) and even smells so nice every day.
I have been staying here for little over a week now (still a bit more to go), and my time here has already solidified my view of Hi Guesthouse.
Promptly @8am, you always here the staff coming in and making the coffee (from starbucks, yay!), and you kind of hear the house starting to wake up.
It's a great feeling.
Obviously, with the shared dorms, much of your experience will also be left up to who you end up sleeping in with (if you're sensitive to noise/privacy, and the like)
but that is really not left to the hands of hi guesthouse itself, and they have signs everywhere reminding theguests to be respectful and such so that all our experiences here are pleasurable, so yup, that's why I would give this an excellent rating despite definately having the night I couldnt sleep due to outside factors.
Him and I'm pretty sure most if not all? his staff are bi to trilingual, so it's awesome, and kind of inspiring in a sense, that we can all kind of that if we put our minds to it.
Anways A+ for hi guesthouse itself and its homemakers :)
Also, for some add. info, this was my first ever stay at a guesthouse, let alone living in a shared format, and it was amazing! I was very worried about safety, but they are very accomodating if you're worried with keeping everything in your room, and there's lockers with keys that I can open lockup, then open, and lockup again, haha it's a great feeling ^^
i think I've said enough, so yup!
you guys should come here. if not for its cleanliness and quality, for its benevolent host. Isn't that what living's all about anyways? the good people.
OH! and it's location is amazing. i'm a native korean so I know. visitors might think its a long walk to hongdae, but in seoul, this is nothing.
in your SUBways there's walking like crazy, so if you can't handle this, then might as well get a tax for everything during your stay.
