          they are very informative”

          At the beginning before arrival, they gave information about a dog. If we have a problem they will put the dog. I am staying here for the most time in korea. The small guesthouse but comfortable enough for just go and sleep. A lack of one is number of bathroom, the amount have not fulfilled the occupant so you have to wait if someone used.

          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 ^_^

          Worht for what you pay”

          We had a rooftop room with private bathroom included. It was nice, quiet and private. But as bathroom and toilet are outside the room, so it has no heater and definitely cold. The 2 things you may need to know about this place is it a bit far from subway station. You can either walk to Mangwon sta. (500m) or take a bus to Hongik Sta. And the another thing is the stairs to the higher floor are both very narrow and steep. Overall, we were having a pleasant time staying there.

          I had a great stay. The female dormitory room is not small at all. Shawn is really friendly. it's very convenient because of its proximity to shops, subway station and bus stops. the neighborhood is also quiet so you can live in peace. Plus if you're a fan of B1A4, WM entertainment is just a few blocks away. Toiletries are provided as well. I love their cute dog, Coco.. Will book again when I visit SK again :)

          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. 😊

          The staffs here can speak English (relatively) well and they are all very, very friendly and helpful. I had to call my flight company to add luggage at the very last minute and they helped me to talk to the operator (in Korean) and helped me to sort things out nicely! The one and only downside is its location, a little bit far from the subway and if you buy a lot of things, you need to carry and walk for a fair bit. However, the good side definitely outweighs the downside! Will definitely be back! :)

          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!

          Positive : good location and helpful stuff. Smell of dog pee and poop in second floor not strong. negative : a dog lives in the house and stuff almost never went for a walk with him. I asked the owner and he said "maybe 2x per Week"!! This is the reason why the poor dog has to pee and poop in the house... Everywhere. And when this happens, he gets scolded!! Anyway, the smell in the first floor ist really disgusting! So watch where you step!!

The wall is very thin, My room is near the living room , so when other guests have meeting, watching TV., laughing. I heard everything until midnight!!!! 12am. After the long long day traveling I just need to get rest. I opened the door and said sorry, could you keep quiet a bite please. After that when I closed the door the noise got louder again. I saw the dog’s poop on the carpet. Then I don’t really know when I step on wet floor it was water or the dog’s pee!!!!

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.

          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.
