Location is perfect, 2 minutes walk to Edae subway station and 5 minutes walk to Edae University. Staffs are super nice and helpful. And they can speak English, no communication problem. The room has everything I needed. The price is really good and saved me a lot of money for my trip. If I go to Seoul again, I'll come back to 24 Guesthouse Edae!!!

Highly recommended, feels just like home.”

Comfortable, Affordable and Convenient

My stay in Edae Guesthouse was a really pleasant one, the staffs there were really friendly and would try to help you as much as possible if you need any help. The train station is just a 1min walk from the guesthouse and the surrounding area has quite a number of restaurants, cafes and shopping areas. Great location I would say. Just next to the Guesthouse would be a convenient store where you can buy their phone card there too. The nearest train station would be Ehwa Women's University which is very near to the shopping areas like Myeong Dong and DongDaeMun. Everything in the room is kept really clean. Washing machine, fridge, oven and boiler are also provide. Overall, I had a really decent stay at Edae Guesthouse and would choose to stay here again if I were to travel solo again in the future.

Will be back!”

Exit5 of ewha uni station, cross the pedestrian crossing, turn left and walk straight to GS25 (less than 2mins), the guesthouse will be right beside it (yellow signboard with rabbit, very obvious). climb up the stairs. We arrived pretty late 12AM-1AM, there were none at the counter despite informing for late checkin, luckily there is a guest who was also returning, let us in & called for help. Inhouse facilities was good, babybliss hairdryer, hot shower, good quality shampoo&conditional, able to heat up food, aircon, heater (for winter), room is very clean. Staff were friendly & will greet you whenever you leave or return. A female staff was very helpful to carry down my heavy luggage from the stairs when checking out. Location is prime!! Easily walkable distance to edae street! Opposite the hotel (directly crossing the road at midnight, no cars) for authentic korean chicken & beer which open till 2AM. GS25 just right below which is super convient!! Pricing of hotel is affordable & hope it maintain the price. Will be glad to stay again.

Location, Friendly Staff, Doggies

My friend was visiting from the States when we stayed at 24 Guesthouse Edae. She was comfortable there and the staff was very informative in helping her with ANY questions she had; whether it was pertaining to the currency, mailing a letter (which they happily took care of for her) to tours or things to do/see in Seoul. The staff that I met was very accommodating and understanding. I'd recommend staying here whether it's for one night or longer. Thanks Melissa, Julia, Chae for making our stay wonderful!

Friendly & Warmth Stay”

Friendly, Helpful & Cheerful

There was a miscommunication with the booking. The receptionist(a young guy who studied in NZ previously) at Edae was helpful to solve the issue and liaise with the Ewha outlet to accommodate me there instead. They paid for my cab fare from Edae to Ewha. The people there was concern as I was sick and wearing thinly for the weather. They were also helpful with experience to have in seoul and culture exchange. The room were cosy and it just feels like home as it has everything that you need from TV, bathroom, Fridge and Washing Machine! Definitely a good place to stay and will be back next time and super value for money! *FYI: Edae would be a better location compared to Ewha, as Ewha has no lift and my room was at L5!

Pros En suite shower and toilet Refrigerator and washing machine and microwave Desk with cable TV Pleasant and accommodating multi-lingual staff In front of bus stop and less than one block from Circle Line Metro station Countless restaurants, coffee shops within walking distance; convenience store next door, grocery across the street Free (and fast!) WiFi service Cons Room very small Mattress could be more comfortable Steep stairway to hotel entrance with no handrails; there is no elevator No exterior window in my room Electric adaptor plugs fell out of wall-mounted socket; had to buy extension cord to be used on top of desk SUMMARY Staying one or two nights in Seoul? You might consider a larger and more upscale hotel room. I was at 24 Guesthouse for almost two weeks, saved a lot of money, and would not hesitate to return for another extended stay.

Nice and convenient ”

Convenient, close to public transport, space

I enjoyed my stay at the 24 Guesthouse Edae. Staff were friendly, attentive. Although there weren't lift, staff offer to help with carrying my luggages during check in and outs. Staff can either speak English or Chinese, no communication issues. The main door and all room doors are password locks, so you don't have to worry about locking yourself out or forget to lock your door when you leave your room. The guesthouse is also right next to a 24 hour convenient store so you can get snacks if you feel hungry at midnight. Its 1 mins walk to Edae station and 5 mins walk to Ewha Uni. The only con is the walls are kinda thin. I can hear next door talking on the phone at 2am, which is annoying, but maybe its just bad luck. I will definitely recommend this guesthouse if you don't mind a bit of stairs.

Definitely one of the best guesthouses in Seoul”

Centrally located, well equipped, attentive and friendly staff

This has got to be the best Guesthouse I have stayed in. Firstly, the room is well equipped and has a cable TV set, washing machine, microwave oven and a kitchen sink. Area is pretty reasonable with more than enough space for 2 open luggages. The air conditioning is strong, unlike other guesthouses that provide mediocre ones. Common areas are very clean and there is effort in ensuring that is smells good with timed air fresheners. The boss of the guesthouse is extremely friendly with guests and really does his best to serve them all. The staff is attentive with good english and mandarin language competencies. Check in and check out is fast. Location is just half a minute walk from Ewha Woman's university station and the surrounding encompasses the shopping districts with plenty of food options and convenience stores nearby. Only thing I could possibly gripe about is the lack of a lift to the second story of the building but it does not really matter anyway because the staffs are willing to come down and help with the luggage. Not to mention security is pretty good too with CCTVs extending to even the outside of the guesthouse. All in all, a definite good stay for the budget traveller!

this hotel is just 1min walk from Ewha women university metro station exit 6, after u get to the surface, turn ard and u will walk down slope n see a "GS 25" convenient store, beside it will be a yellow signboard for 24 guest house edae. Took me 1hr to find it because google map showed its another few blocks away, luckily a very friendly local bring me to the right place. its located on 3rd floor so there is no lift, u have to carry ur luggage. the room is small, i have barely enough space to open my 25inch luggage on the floor with no spare room to walk. the toilet is also small but not dreadfully small like those i had experience in paris. the bed frame is abit loose, mattress is ok. there is also washing machine, you can purchase the washing powder from the owner at 1000won. there is also a small LCD TV. i stayed 3 nights there. you can walk from ewha to sichon station in abt 10mins and ewha women university in 5mins (just walk across the junction at metro exit) overall a pleasant experience, recommended for budget conscious solo travellers.

If you don't expect luxury, you will love it”

The location, its proximity to public transport and friendly staff

Our stay was very pleasant and the rooms were cosy and clean. We stayed in the twin bedroom and loved the fact that we had a washing machine. The guesthouse provides detergent at a low charge of two thousand won or so, but we brought our own from the start and the washing machine was really very convenient given that we were in seoul for 12 days. The staff are also very friendly (they greet you everytime you reach back!) and although we did not have any breakfast there, we saw the breakfast on the first day and it was a rather generous spread. And for animal lovers, one of the staff/owner has a little toy poodle that makes its appearance in the common area downstairs sometimes. It is really shy but curious! :D The location is also fantastic - it is directly next to Ehwa Women's University subway, and 15 minutes walk away would already be Sinchon. Being close to the university, there are a lot of food options available and even at night you can get supper from the convenience store (cup noodles or such) next door or opposite the road. If you love fried chicken, there are even a few stores along the street that open late into the wee hours of the morning. BUT PLEASE NOTE! If you intend to check-in early, please go busy yourself in the airport or something first because the staff only comes in at 8am regardless of whether or not you request for an early check-in. We made that mistake and was waiting outside the door to the guesthouse for a good hour. Also, the place has no lift so bear that in mind. And lastly, please be careful when you climb them stairs because the rubber lining was loose on the edge of one and I went tumbling down with my luggage when it suddenly gave way. Also, checking out is easy because you just leave your room lock sequence on the white board so you can leave even if the staff is not around. TLDR: Good location, friendly staff, clean cosy rooms (choose the washing machine room!), DON'T intend to check in before 8am!

Location, staff, facilities,

This is my second time staying at the 24 Guesthouse Edae. I enjoyed the stay and would stay in this guesthouse next time I come to Seoul! The guesthouse is about 3 minutes walk from Ewha University station(exit 6). There is a GS25( convenient store) right next to it, and restaurants near by, so if you are hungry in the middle of the night, you don't have to starve yourself. :) The staff are nice and friendly, same as last time. They were helpful when I have questions and greeted me every time they see me. Although this guesthouse do not have a lift, the staff helped me to carry my luggages down when I checked in and after I checked out. All rooms have floor heating, air-con, microwave, washing machine, tv, wardrobe. Definitely recommend this guesthouse for its great location, helpful staff and facilities :) I enjoyed my stay with them!

Stayed in both the single room and twin room for my trip. Pros: 1) Very convenient location - near edae subway station, busstop right at the doorstep, 5min walk to edae shopping area 2) Has basic facilities in room - washing machine, self-controlled air conditioner (as compared to centralised air-conditioner at some places), hair dryer, toilet, microwave, kettle, TV etc. 3) Helpful staff 4) Decent breakfast - bread, jam, peanut butter, coffee, tea, hardboil eggs, raw eggs, milk, with frying pan and toaster available Cons: 1) the twin room i stayed in only has a shower curtain and doesn't have a toilet door 2) Hard bed 3) walls at the single room i stayed in was pretty thin, could hear the voices of the rooms beside me and at the corridor clearly Overall, i would probably stay here again if i go to korea for a solo trip, but maybe not with a friend because there are no toilet doors at the twin room. Liked the location especially as it is very near the subway.

Well located guesthouse near Ewha Women's University”

My husband and I stayed here for a week. We really appreciated the convenient location — it is a short stroll to the nearest subway exit of the Ewha Women's University station (green line), which makes it really convenient to get to other parts of Seoul. The airport bus stop is also within a five-minute walk away. The room was relatively small, but housed good amenities including a washing machine (detergent costs 1,000 won a bar from reception), a kitchen sink and a hairdryer. The warm water and water pressure from the shower was relatively constant, but there were times it came down to a trickle for about 10 seconds — a small inconvenience that can be easily overlooked. The guesthouse offers cleaning service at an extra charge (about 3,000 won I think) but if you don't opt for it, it is your responsibility to take the trash out, replenish toilet paper etc. The floor was really grimy from the time we checked in, and the cover on the spare bed was also quite dusty. Thankfully the double bed that we slept in was clean enough. There are different receptionists on duty depending on the time of day. They are generally very helpful — one even helped me with my heavy luggage up the stairs. As you come up the stairs, you will see posters advertising tourist specials (deals to Everland, Nami Island etc.), but what we soon learnt after enquiring about a few of those is that the staff have no idea what is on offer, and we wasted a lot of time at reception waiting for them to figure it out. On one occasion, we were at reception for almost half an hour while the staff searched for and scrolled through the tourist website — when all we needed her help to do was to call the number we had provided from the start to book our tickets — this was really a frustration. If you're on a budget, this guesthouse stands out most for its convenience. If we return to Seoul, we will likely explore other accommodation options.
