“Friendly and helpful staff make the difference”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Stayed here for 9 nights in late July/early August. The Kimchee staff, especially Derrick, are helpful and friendly. Derrick is fun and often stays after closing to visit with guests and hang out. The guesthouse staff will do your laundry for you about $3, which was very useful since we were visiting during one of the hottest times of the year (monsoon season) and everything I owned was sweaty. The rooms are small and a bit moldy - but, they are clean, and if you set your expectations properly and keep in mind that the price is so low it's as close to free as it gets, it will be fine. The location is great being a short walk from the Euljiro-3 metro stop, and very very close to the City Hall area and Myeongdong shopping. There were even a couple of noraebang (karaoke) places nearby (one on the 2nd floor of the building the guesthouse is in) that I didn't get to check out...but if that's your thing then this might be your place.

One of the friendliest guesthouses I have stayed in my travels.
Their staff can speak really fluent English: everything from planning your iterenaries to a simple chitchat! Everyone here is relaxed and smiling, usually you have haggard staff at receptions but here, its different.
The room is really basic and tidy but enough for a good night rest.
If the weather is great, check out the rooftop terrace they have tables and chairs and you will enjoy the view and relax in the quiet.
The only drawback of this guesthouse is that its quite hard to find at first, they have rickety stairs so do mind watching where you are going, and if you have a huge luggage it could be stressful especially for a girl so let them help you.

Stayed here September 2012 with friends and February 2013 solo

We all 8 people from Bangkok stayed at Kimchee Myeongdong guesthouse for 6 nights at a reasonable price (very cheap ^^) and clean. Derrick, a staff there was friendly and willing to help you carry the luggages (the best part :P)
The only disadvantage of this guesthouse is that you have to climb up 3-storey building, but there was not our problem anyway ^^
Thanks again, we are impressed by the warm welcome and your helping hands. Unfortunately we spent a very little time in the guesthouse since we went out all day long !
