The Cocoon house was pretty easy to find if you wonder around a little bit (i didn't have internet). Location was good, and the subway station is only about 15 min walk away. The house itself was clean and the shared kitchen looked nice. Although you could hear sometimes trough the walls, usually it was pretty calm in the house. This was my first time using Airbnb accomodation. The room was small but enough for someone who is going outside more than staying inside. Shower was roomy enough, although the showers water pressure was pretty weak at some points. There was a towel as promised but it was small so i recommend bringing also your own if you're not used to using small one. Bed had two blankets and a pillow but they didn't have sheets. I saw also some other peoples hair on the blankets and floors. Also there was little bit stains on the table and walls. There weren't any extra plugs, so if you need to charge your phone, you had to disconnect frigde, tv or internet. At first i didn't have toilet paper in the room and i had to ask it the next day. But also it was nice i got a hairdryer from the manager, i just asked it on advance from Jay. All in all the stay was pretty OK, would have been alot more easier if the nice manager spoke english. If you are willing to compromise from some things listed above, i recommend this since it was cheap on a good location!

quite basic, but it had everything needed - bed, personal bathroom, TV, personal wifi. the room is clean and the security guy is nice. The only problem was the stairs and the subway station is a little bit far i think, so who taking lots of luggage or big luggage should thing about it as those can be a challenge.

Been here for three weeks. Good for the price. Rooms are small but fair enough to sleep. Communication on the web is easy and precise. Jay answers quickly, precisely and politely. A little more difficult in the house; the manager speaks just Korean, anyway available to put some effort to understand. Some useful busses stops are very close. Yeoksam station is not very close, 15 mins on foot. Aircon cannot be controlled from the room, you have to ask the manager to change your settings. Overall, good compromise for Gangnam area.

Jay and uncle Kim have been really helpful during my stay at Cocoon House. They helped me to solve the internet problem, they also adjusted the air-con temp for me when I needed. The place is quiet and clean. There are quite a few restaurants nearby. Buses are quite frequent. Overall I like this place.

The communication was poor and the place was extremly small and had nothing but a bed, wc and table. The host not actively available either. Only good thing was that the host let me check out whenever I wanted which is good.
