Easy to catch airport bus, things are cheaper as this is University area, not much tourist
This is my second stay at the guesthouse. Overall, I do like it as it easy to catch airport bus, things are cheaper as this is University area and not much tourist. But this time, there were few things that let us down. The girl staff not so friendly and helpful. We were staying there for 4 nights. For the 2nd and 3rd night, there had no heater at all, and that was 4 degree celcius. I told them about this issue and the girl just say would check it and she had never follow up on this. Until the next morning, we complaint to another staff, then the problem only solve. However, another problems occurs. On the night, there was no hot water. I told the girl staff, she was like no big deal and just telling that someone had switch that off. This sound alright for us and she never follow up on the matters. Despite those issues, overall the guesthouse looks good and cozy after renovation.

The staffs are nice.The environment is quite good.

Near Shopping District. Convenient Transportation.Staff can speak in English.
The environment is quite good and staffs are very nice. However, I lived in the new building which is still under construction. My room is clean and tidy, but the WIFI connection is not good at all. The signal in my building is weak and disconnects always. I think Wifi in other buildings are better and more stable.

Nice people.

There is a cat. You need to ask them for towels. Hyehwa Exit 4 is closwer to the hostel.
1. The door will be locked at eleven. There was once we back at 10:45pm, it was already locked. But they didnt tell us the password in advance. We standed outside and knocked the door, feeling quite helpless. Someone opened the door around 5 mins later. 2. The door of the room cannot be locked if you just close it without pressing "#". there was once we saw the cat on our bed when we came back.

Easy going GoldenPond

Easy check-in, friendly staff, felt like home.
Overall a nice little piece of traditional Korean architecture nestled in the heart of the theater district in Seoul. They were very accommodating with me changing my dates and a comfortable stay for the value.

Great location, friendly staff

Great location, friendly staff, easy access to public transport
The hostel is nice and clean, short walking distance to the subway station and airport bus stop. Goldenpond Guesthouse gave everything we need. I and my family had a very comfortable stay. Thanks for MiJung Song, and her staff who were very kind and helpful. The best place to stay in Seoul!

The accomodation and service are excellent.

the helpfulness of the staff, cleaniness and location
I had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The owner, MiJung Song, and her staff were a great help to me and made my stay hassle-free and carefree. The staff even helped me find accommodation at another city that I was visiting. Without the help of MiJung and her staff, I might not have found good accommodation, since I do not speak Korean. Thank you MiJung and staff!
