Quaint Neighborhood
Don't get intimidated by the reviews of birdnest being far from station or hard to find. It is not. - I loved the feel of the area, and it's close to a salad cafe if you're a vegan, and bbq places open till after midnight if you are out late. Trickeye Museum is a walking distance away! Seoul station is just 2stops away. I will definitely come back.

Not that pleasant, but good location
Well, I went there during the winter with my friends. We booked for 5 nights in Bird's Nest. The location is quite okay, about 10-15 minutes walk to the nearest subway. It's near by Hongdae district which we can find a lot of good stuff and food. What I find not very satisfying was the room. The bed was not very comfortable. The water heater didn't work properly, so sometimes we suddenly got the freezing water attack during the shower. The room cleanliness is just okay. They changed the towel everyday. They don't have breakfast but we still can use the kitchen. They also serve rice for the guest every morning. The staffs are quite awkward with the guests. It was Christmas night and they don't even prepare small events for the guests. Maybe I was expecting too much of a guesthouse life will be like. 🤣 Anyway, it was not all pleasant. We were just quite happy with the location.

Acceptable
The cleanliness of the showers room is worst, no shampoo/ bodywash provided and there is worm moving on the barrier of the shared shower room. The blanket wasn't warm enough for a cold night & we has closed all our window tightly but still can feel VERY COLD. Have to walk 15min to the nearest subway: Hongik Universiy subway station

Thank you for your review, we'll do better, from here to subway line 2 about 6-7 minutes, near exit 2 and 3

Never have had a better manager than in this hostel
This manager knows what it means to be human. And by that he's very friendly, has a nice type of humor and likes to have a talk with anyone. He's always ready to help you, no reason what kind of question you have. I think he has the quality to make every place a special place. I'm very glad I did have the chance to meet this man. Many greetings, Henk van den Brand

My arrival was at 15 of april and I was planning to stay 7 to 10 days at Birdsnest... It became a month because I became ill. The help from the people who were working here was awesome. Specially the manager was amazing.There are people that say that there are Angels on earth...well when that is true: He is definitely one of them. Also I saw that there was no question from guest that was to much for him and he almost always found an answer. From the beginning I had the feeling to be accepted and feld me like at home. Thanks for all the help and kindness. Many love ringsinthewater Netherlands
