“Good & simple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for good accommodations close to the train station this is it. The room we stayed in was very small- but suited our needs as a place to sleep to catch the train. The breakfast is simple: bread, cereal, bananas, instant coffee.
It is tricky to find! Follow other reviewers directions & you'll find it.

The guesthouse is situated conveniently close to Seoul Station, which makes it really easy to get around. The staff were super helpful and spoke English quite well. Our room, allthough small, was clean and comfortable and kept a good temperature despite the blistering cold outside. There is also an AC unit for hot summers and general ventilation and a TV set with Korean channels. The bathroom was actually rather big, but also quite chilly.

Stayed here for two nights while hopping around Asia. The location was extremely convenient to Seoul Station (their main station) and all the bus and subway lines. For directions from the Seoul Station please read below.

Our room was small but efficient with a bunk bed, desk, TV, and a private bathroom. The included wiki worked very well. Breakfast in the morning was simple: bread, jam, cereal, juice and instant coffee. There's also many great little snack shops and restaurants on this alley. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. If you're looking for a safe, clean, simple and convenient place to hang your bag, then this is it.

The location is one block and down an alley from Seoul Station, but it can be confusing. The "How To Access" part of this website helped us but some parts are incorrect (http://www.travelnote.net/seoul/hotel/kpopguesthouse). We couldn't find exit 11 from the station. It's best if you can ask someone where it is and then you can follow the directions. If you don't start from exit 11 you will need to figure out how to cross the labyrinth of main roads with barricades to get across the street. Finding exit 11 essentially takes you under the main road to cross the street. After you come up the stairs outside from exit 11 you will make a right and go up the street. Then go straight and cross the street. After crossing the street make a quick right and then make a left down the first alley. Go down that alley and you will see the Guesthouse on your left. I will email the hotel and ask them to include updated directions for future guests. Happy Travels!

K Pop is a great little place that is very close to Seoul station. This Guesthouse is very similar to a hostel but not as frantic while still having some character. Our room was on the 6th floor we had three very clean and comfortable single beds. There was a TV with Korean cable, clean towles, soap and a very cold AC unit. There is roof access which provides picnic tables and a sweet view of the Seoul Tower. The bathroom was small but functional and clean. Breakfast was basic cereal toast coffee and juice. The building is located down an alleyway off the main street which features a resturant, small store and several friendly characters to greet you. It is easy to get anywhere in Seoul from here by train, subway, bus or taxi. If you are looking for a simple place to sleep and store your stuff while you explore Seoul K Pop is perfect for you.
