The location and that's it! It's near hongik station and in the middle of the main streets of Hongdae.
The hostel is on the 4th floor and for some rooms it's even 5th floor without elevator. On the 5th floor there's only one toilet+shower for around 20 guests so i found my self always waiting for the bathroom many times. The 4 people dorm room is really tiny, we weren't even 4 people and still there was no space!
The host, Sabrina, is the greatest : super nice, kind and helpful. I was in a 6 beds dorm and the room was clean, as the bathroom. It's big enough. There's A/C. Location is perfect, in the center of Hongdae. There's many stores and restaurant at 30 seconds walk. Hongik subway station is at one minute walk. I really recommend this place !
The best location in Hongdae ! An ADORABLE crew ! This guest house is amazing!
Place was close to the subway and clean. Super great neighborhood nice common area to meet people and the manager kept stuffing bananas in my mouth. Great breakfast service would come back definitely!
Dustin and Sabrina were fantastic and friendly hosts. I really enjoyed my stay here. The guesthouse is located in the heart of the area with everything at your doorstep. It's on the 3rd floor above the shops shown in the pictures (the stairs are on the left) and is set over 2 floors with key code access to entry and rooms. Simple breakfast provided each morning to help yourself and ample fridge space if you want to bring your own food to cook. There are countless options for food and drinks around as you like. 1 to 4 minute walk to 2 or 3 major subway lines and one of them goes straight to the airport.
The bathrooms need some extra hooks and small shelves to be able to place/hang items and clothing. (I forgot to mention this to Dustin before I left - sorry) They were doing renovations during my stay so these may now have been addressed. As this area is full of nightlife and even day-life there is music playing outside until reasonably late and starting late morning. This wasn't an issue for me or any of the others during my stay, but can be for some so should be noted.
With a stay at Dustin Guesthouse - Hostel in Seoul (Mapo), you'll be a 5-minute walk from Hongik University and within a 5-minute drive of Seoul World Cup Stadium. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and a safe deposit box at the front desk.
