The place is a hippie place for the young people of Korea, so there are a lot of good establishments in the area. It's about a 5-10minute walk from Hongik University station Exit 7. The rooms are clean and a small towel is provided. Staff were great and friendly. Great value for money, comfort, and location. I'll definitely recommend this place to my friends when they come to Korea!

The host was very helpful and replied to all our messages promptly despite it being late at night when we arrived. Everything that was stated in the listing was provided and the guesthouse was conveniently located. Loved the staff, Paul and Joanna, who were there everyday to clean etc and make sure all of us enjoyed and felt comfortable. Made a lot of new friends from around the world and had a great time staying here!

I don't have any idea who is satisfied with this hostel. Unlike the photo, the room I stayed a night was very untidy and noisy. Pillow and blanket were very itching. The curtain stick was out of order, so I couldn't hide the light from outside. You might be satisfied if you are a light backpackers or heavy backpackers who just want to put their lugguage and stay out a night because Hongdae and Shin-Chon subway station ( commercial town ) is in the vicinity of this hostel.
