Great flat in a great area. Close to transport and good food and nightlight. Hyun and Michel were very helpful. Would definitely use again!

This place is amazingly clean and cozy. Perfect for 1-2 folks! Hyun & Michel are great hosts. Although we didn't get to meet them, but they've been really responsive to our questions and concerns we had. They even asked us during our mid-trip if everything's fine. Thumbs up if you're looking for a small yet cozy home to stay while in Seoul that's near Hongdae (Hongik University Station).

Hyun & Michel's place is amazing! Exactly as pictured in the photos and so comfortable and clean. The apartment has everything you need (kitchen well stocked with appliances, laundry, small table, great wifi, toiletries). They even provide a pocket wifi which is hugely helpful when out exploring the city! They also provided very detailed instructions on how to arrive and check in, which made it super easy to get there using public transit. One of our best air bnb experiences yet. We'd absolutely stay here again the next time we're in Seoul.

The place was clean and it's a nice size for two people. It's abit of a walking distance from the train station but there are a lot of eateries, cafes and mini mart along the way. Not forgetting a pharmacy just around the corner. Hyun and Michel have been very responsive to my messages since the day I reached and instructions were clear too. Appreciate all the recommendations and tips! ;)

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING A GREAT HOST. Thank you for being so responsive and providing us with different options when we said we want to go hiking! The place is warm and cozy, feels like home and the neighbourhood is quiet but with convenient stores and some restaurants around! A very nice location with walkable distance to Hongik Station. We liked it a lot and will hope to stay there if we travel to Korea again! Recommending this to everyone! Thanks Hyun & Michel!! ^^

The apartment was beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed. It was clean and the internet was very fast. The neighbourhood was quiet, but walking distance to shops, lots of cafés, and restaurants/bars. Hyun & Michel were very friendly and helpful. We stayed for a month, and would definitely stay again the next time we're in Seoul.

Hyun & Michel User ProfileHyun & Michel is a superhost.


We are Hyun & Michel, a Korean-French couple living in Seoul, and recently parents ^^
Having travelled a lot around the world, especially in Asia, and met wonderful people, we want to make sure that our guests enjoy fully their stay in Korea... starting with your accommodation in our cozy studio of Hongdae :)

Many items in your Hongdae nest are related to Korean culture, from the beautiful silver grass which grows on the country's river banks, to the symbolism of figurines and traditional Korean scrolls.
We will do our best to welcome you in person at your arrival, and provide some information.

See you soon for a memorable stay in the Republic of Korea!
