Highly Recommended”

Apple Tree Guesthouse is my home in SEOUL. Good value for money compare to other guesthouses in the metro. The location is near Mangwon Station (5-10Mmins walk) and near the center of Hongdae, just be mindful if you have luggages since Mangwon station has only one elevator for Exit 2, exit 1 has also elevator but you need to take the another stairs up. I would recommend also to explore Mangwon Area, the market, the Han river and nearby places. Shawn is very helpful to us about our concerns, COCO is also a cutiee,she can play with you in the living room. Complete facilities is a plus. We will definitely come back when we visit Seoul again next time. :)

A home away from home”

The Apple Tree Guesthouse feels like a "home away from home"... if that makes any sense. The staff, especially Shawn, is accommodating, hospitable and friendly. They did what they could to make our stay comfortable. The location of the guesthouse itself is accessible to various places of interest. And, it is a short walk away from Mangwon Station Line 3. Plus if you're a dog lover, you'd find the presence of the adorable daschund named Coco a bonus. Will definitely come back here on my next visit to Seoul. 😊

Value for Money, Nice Host, Homie Environment, BOOK THIS!!! ”

It's the first time I travelled outside the country and I've chosen South Korea. I got into the Korean culture because of KPOP and easily got hooked into the culture. I planned this trip 1 year before and looked for accommodation via Agoda. Apple Tree is a great place to stay if you are looking for an affordable find. The place itself is situated in Seoul, specifically in the Mangwon area. The neighborhood is quiet and the place is clean. I just really want a place to stay and have a comfortable sleep. The room that I reserved was the bunk twin - the room comes with a bunk bed, table, chair, lamp and air conditioning. The comfort rooms are shared but that was never a problem for me. What's best about my stay is that I get the chance to know other travelers and Shawn. Shawn basically helped me with everything. He sent an email informing me about the directions on how to get to the place. He introduced me to his niece who is very cute. He even gave me additional information about where to get the best rate for money exchange. I will definitely book this place and I highly recommend this place for backpackers who would like to look for an affordable place to stay. - JON

A home feeling and cozy house in a residential area”

The Apple tree outside the house is definitely an icon, however, it does not make us easy to find out the location as soon as we can even we tried on google map. The house is very cozy with a lot of little detailed decoration makes guests feel like home and comfortable. Dachshund coco is definitely the most enthusiastic staff vs the owner oppa and those girls ....haha. She likes to play and catch attentions from guests. Overall experience is very nice with spacious room and comfortable beds. It is one of the best choice in the area which is not crowded even near Hongdae.

Ideal for any kind of culture traveller”

Home feeling, Warm atmosphere, Cleanness & respectful

As a frequent travellers to Seoul city, I have stayed in many different hostels and guesthouse. Appletree guesthouse is the only one I kept coming back & returned for a reason. Being a non tourist attractions admirer, I would prefer accommodation close to local neighborhood and let me discover about Koreans more. We will be able to find many non franchise coffee shops and cafe nearby. Similarly, we all able to enjoy culture exchange in the warm house without heavy shopping lovers around. Topics are mostly related to travel stories more than anything else. Shawn the owner welcomes us to use the kitchen and even hols little party in the living room. Just come and stay, you will gain more than plenty of nights in Hongdae typical hostel... Last but not least. THANK YOU!

Fair Experience ”

The guesthouse is located near Mangwon station. It took about 5 minutes to walk to the subway station. Since there are elevators available in Mangwon station, it is easier for travelers with huge luggage. The guesthouse is well-facilitated, with kitchen, a microwave (If you are interested in making the famous Mark Meal) and hairdryer. There is free Wi-Fi available in the guesthouse. The rooms are nice and clean. The bed linens are clean as well. There is air conditioning provided if the weather gets too hot. The only complaint I have is the bathroom. The flow rate of the shower heads seems to be lacking. In general, it was a fair experience at the Apple Tree Guesthouse.

It was an amazing stay. ”

The guest house is very well located, close to the metro (less than 10 min) and close to hongdae (20 min by foot). We had a room all the way up, so we had our privacy which was nice. We had access to everything (wifi, aircon, TV, washing machine, fridge, kitchen, smoking area) and everything was in good condition and working well. Shawn is the best host we have ever had, he was always ready to help us and very nice! It was the perfect location for our 2 weeks long trip in Seoul, it was more than we could expect for the price we paid.

Very comfortable and good location”

We loved our stay, thank you so much Shawn! He's super friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We stayed as a couple in the second floor double bed room that had an extra single bed and coffee table and small double couch, and found it extremely roomy and comfortable. There are three rooms in total on that floor, with a lovely communal kitchen, lounge and two bathrooms. Everything is decorated very nicely and it really did feel very home-like, very warm and comfortable. Security is ample with a numeric keypad lock at the front door (ensuring you can get in and out whenever you wish) and you get your own room key to lock up whenever you are out. We loved our three day stay, and it's a nice short walk to the subway along quiet and quaint streets. The guesthouse is situated not far from the very lively and popular area of Hongdae so there's plenty to do. We would definitely recommend this place!

Very nice owner/manager, bed was more comfortable than usual for guesthouses/hostels. Very quiet during night as it's in residential area but only 15min walk from busy streets of Hongdae. Puppy is adorable and very welcome addition as well. Clean. Very good overall, will come back again if I need place in that area ^_^

Place is clean, exactly the same like in the picture. Shared bathroom but bathroom is very spacious. Got free coffee and bread in the kitchen. Quite far from subway, about 10mins walking, but Shawn gave a very clear direction together with photos on how to get to the guesthouse. The place got a dog but if you're afraid of it, you can request for other levels without the dog.

We booked for a twin room and when Shawn assisted us to our room, I was surprised to see that it was a triple room (1 double bed and 1 single bed). I had the best sleep here during my Seoul trip. And price was super cheap. Everything is provided! Coco the dog is super cute!!! Thanks, Shawn! We will be back. And also, I loved that it is situated in a residential area.

Homey Feeling, great stay!”

Spent 2 nights in the 4 bed female dorm while I was in Seoul. I did faced a little challenge looking for it upon my arrival despite the host has given clear direction on email. But it's alright, learnt a couple of Korean characters (Laundry Shop) after this incident :) I feel like home the moment I stepped into the hostel. The host is so thoughtful, there are coffee, tea, bread, jam, butter prepared that you can have them anytime you want. The room and bathroom are clean, I had very enjoyable stay. will definitely stay in this hostel again the next time I visit Seoul.

My friend and I stayed here for two days and had no problem whatsoever. It was a little bit difficult finding the location of the guesthouse however the guides that the owners gave us locate the place helped tremendously. The dog Coco was very very cute and sweet! On our second day we asked one of the staff to help us order delivery food and she was hgappy to help, so that was another plus. Really cheap place with good hosts. I would overall recommend this place!

Only disadvantage is location of this accomodation. It is very close to the nearest underground station, but when you want to get to other places in Seoul, you always have to change a few times.
