The staff was excellent, the breakfast was simple but perfect, the location was decent, the beds were very comfortable, and the room was overall clean. The bathroom was clean and the shower head was better than my one at home! Would highly recommend to other traveling young people/traveling on a budget.
The location was great in hongdae. But that meant super loud drunk people could be heard from the street from midnight until at least 2. Which is when I finally passed out. Also no clear entrance- I walked around twice before realizing where the door was. And no elevator. This isn’t anything the site can control, but I hadn’t thought to make sure before booking and was left in a lot of pain. So just be aware. The shower is attached to the sink, and there’s no place to hang the shower head while showering. I had to hold it the whole time. Not necessarily bad things, just be aware of them and what you expect when renting a room.
Really clean, comfy and calm guesthouse. Location is just 3 mins from hongik uni station and very easy to find. Had no problems during our stay.
Great location and nice spacious room. Good customer service from the front desk people.
Delightful location near food, shopping and transportation. Excellent and clean rooms, and easy to access despite arriving at midnight after closure of the front desk. Also option for room cleaning during the stay, which is uncommon in my hostel experience. Great breakfast coffee/juice but more importantly this excellent chocolate cereal that will hereby influence my dietary decisions into the future.
Super stiff beds, hurt our shoulders for the first day but we got over it with more strategic pillow positioning. Gotta be careful of the marble floors - looks excellent, but any wetness on the stairs from a dropped cup of water or the rain outside means you can slip!
Location is very good, around 5 mins from Exit 5. The room is very clean.
Stay at 5th floor, everyday go back is a challenge.
