One of my favorite hostels!”

I initially booked this place for only 3 days before I hopped to another hostel that my friends recommended. Honestly wish I just stayed at Birdsnest the entire time. I even went as far as leaving my hostel in Itaewon two days early so I could book this hostel again. Highly recommend staying here. Why? 1. The staff here are some of the coolest people ever. Super down to earth and willing to give you recommendations / hang out with you. 2. It felt like home. The environment was just very welcoming. Obviously, as a solo traveler, it's nice meeting people and this hostel allowed me to do just that. Of course you have to make an effort to socialize but the environment matters. Birdsnest has two living rooms that really welcomes guests and workers to socialize. 3. Location. Hands down my favorite area. If you're looking for affordable Korean dishes, bars, cafes, etc - Hongdae is a great location. Highly recommend you give this place a shot. It's affordable, located in a great area and more importantly the people here are awesome. I had the best experience of visiting Seoul because I got to meet so many people from this hostel.

Birdsnest exceeded all my expectations!”

Comfortable and cosy

It was my first try at staying in a guesthouse and Birdsnest exceeded all my expectations not only in terms of comfort, safety and convenience, but more so in the genuine care and attention afforded by the boss, Mr Lee, in ensuring that I had a good stay. Birdsnest is conveniently situated near the Hongdae subway station and a stone's throw away from the Hongdae shopping and eating places. The vicinity is abuzz with young people and there is no lack of places to hang out with if you're travelling with friends and family. I felt very at home and well-taken care of while I was in Birdsnest and extended my stay for another month there!

A home away from home”

This hostel was unlike any hostels I have ever stayed in the past as it didn't feel like a hostel in a sense, rather it felt like a home. First of all, the building of the hostel is a two story semi-detached house with small number of guests, two living area on both levels, and a nice fully equipped kitchen, making it feel like truly a home away from home. On top of the intimate feeling the house presented, the international team of staff at this hostel was the most friendly, hospitable, and helpful I have ever encountered, they would go extra miles to help you in anyway they could, which made my staying there feel even more like a home. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Birdsnest, and will definitely use it as my home base whenever I am in Seoul. Thanks so much to the lovely staff, Mateya, Eva, and Lisa, for everything you have done for us guests, you are the best staff in the world, period!!!

Great host and environment C:

Although the hostel is a bit far away from Hongdae station, other things are really good. Friendly host, Mr Lee, introduced the hostel to me after I arrived the hostel, and even cooked for me and shared food with me during the days I stayed there. The dog there is very cute and energetic, loves to run around all the time. The host will give you the key so you can choose anytime to go out or come back. There are 1 family room, 1 dormitory room, 1 bathroom with restroom, a kitchen, a living room with TV and Mr Lee's room on the ground floor; 2 dormitory rooms(one mixed and one for female only), 1 single room, 1 double room, 2 restrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room and a computer on the secord floor. Other than this, the environment of the hostel is very comfortable, just like home. You can talk to Mr Lee or other travellers, everyone is kind and friendly. I really love there and wanna stay for a longer time. I will be back again if I go to Seoul next time C:

Great hostel with a homely feel ”

Always hot water, friendly owner, clean, homely feel, computer and wifi available, breakfast was included, hot drinks (coffee and barley tea) available 24:7

Upon arrival I was welcomed by the owner and his little dog, I was quickly shown around the hostel and made to feel extremely welcome, it felt more like I was staying at a friend's house rather than in a hostel. There are 2 living rooms/public areas, both of which are really nice, ideal places to relax after a long flight or if you like to meet all the people you are staying with. The showers and toilets were all clean and even though it was stated that the hot water would be turned off at 10pm, you only have to ask to have it switched on again if you should require a shower later than that. Location was for me perfect, it is in Hongdae, a more studenty area, with many cafes, bars, restaurants and shops within a 10min walk, while the hostel itself is in a quiet residential street. In terms of getting from the hostel to other places it is no problem at all, a 5 minute walk to the subway (which is also the same station that the AREX stops at, again ideal) and as the subway is excellent in Seoul you will quickly get to anywhere in the city.

Incredibly Awesome”

1. Very Accommodating owner and staff 2. Very Clean rooms 3.Near Subway

My friend recommended this Hostel and since I trust his taste we decided to book Birdnest for our 1 week trip to Seoul. We book the twin room which is on the 2nd floor of the hostel. It's actually bigger than what I expected so I'm happy guest!The 2nd floor has a nice, warm and calm ambiance compared to the first floor so good thing our room is in there. The hostel has super fast internet so you can upload your pics in 1,2,3! The bathrooms are always clean, towels and tissues are always provided. The place is near subway so super easy access to the subway transportation. The owner is very kind and accommodating. We arrived early (8AM) than the check in time (2pm) but he let us leave our luggage and eat breakfast! Our flight back (9pm)was also way out of the check out time (12NN) but again he let us leave our luggage again while we roam around and enjoy our last hours in Seoul. We really appreciate this, Well of course it was really us, that's why I'm writing this review. I'm just curious ~~^^ The area around is very quite and safe. Since the place is located in Hongdae which has superb night life, which me and my friend love so much this is a Major plus. I'm really satisfied with my stay here and will recommend it to my friends. We are planning to go back next year, so you already know where I'll be staying ^_^

Friendly owner, clean, great location, easy to get from/to incheon international airport

This hostel is an ideal place to stay if you are visiting Seoul. The owner is very friendly and really tries to help out his guests in whichever way he can. The hostel is very clean, with a nice shower and the breakfast is also good. In addition, it is located within walking distance of the pub street of Hongdae which is the main party area. Also, the hostel is within walking distance from the metro station from where you'll be able to take the subway to the airport or go sightseeing around the city. Had such a great time here, would certainly recommend it!

"Perfect"”

Good Value, Good Place and Safe

“Perfect”I spent 5 days (2-6 April 2013) in Birdnest Hostel Hongdae and I enjoyed it a lot. I love the single room, since I am a Moslem and traveling on my own, I prefer to take this room for privacy reason. The room is SUPER fine for me. Is in the 2nd floor which is awesome and it has a small table, a table lamp, a mirror, a clock, AC, and a bed with a clean bedcover. Excellent!! Free breakfast is available (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bread with jam, egg) and all is self service. Free laundry and you can iron your clothe as well. Great thing about this place is the location. Just about 10 minutes walk away from Hongik university subway station. You will find the location easily if you follow the given directions. If you are a tea or a coffee drinker, there is a place call “Deep Coffee” a small coffee shop , and the Green Latte is very amazing. Is a MUST to try!! If you need something to munch, you can reach 7-Eleven or GS25 (24-hours Mini Mart) which is very easy to find. The owner, Mr Lee is a nice, friendly and helpful person (^^,)V he allowed me to use the phone to contact my friend in Korea. He also willing to drop me at Hongik university subway station very early in the morning, to catch my flight (it was raining and I am very appreciated, thanks in a million Mr Lee) He’s a very open person, easily to mingle and welcoming all the guests by having warm conversation with them. Keep it Up Mr Lee. Over all, I enjoyed my stay here. I was honestly sad to leave and will definitely go back if I am ever in Korea again. "Please keep that single room for me Mr Lee \(^ ,^)/ TC always"

Very clean, not hard to find and very flexible owner. ”

The owner was very understanding of the pridicament I was in and actually allowed me in at a very late hour. Very clean and the water is hot all the time compared to many guest houses I've been to in Seoul. The kitchen is very neat and I had an awesome time there. And it's close to Hongdae, a very upmarket and busy district in Seoul.

nice environment, clean and quiet

My second time staying in Birdsnest, overall its clean and quiet, wifi provided. The location is quite close to Hongdae, acceptable distance in foot to the main streets. And subway station is quite close as well. There are bakery, cafe, restaurants, and e-mart nearby, easy to get food or drinks. That district is quite safe. Fair price, and I would like to recommend to my friends.

Nice Guesthouse”

A clean guesthouse in a quiet neighborhood

It takes about 5-10 minutes from Hongik University Station to the guesthouse. It's located in a quiet neighborhood. I stayed in an 8-bed dorm on the second floor. They provide a towel, and soap and shampoo are in the shower room. On the second floor, there are two showers but in one room. When I was there, people used the shower one by one (meaning even though there are two shower heads, they only used one at a time) since the shower room is co-ed, and there is no private space for changing. In the evening, I had to wait for a while for a shower to become available, but other than that, there was not much problem. The second floor was kept really clean, and there is a floor table where people can sit and look at their computer or chat. Hongik University Station is well connected to major sites in Seoul, and it was very convenient to go anywhere. Especially if you are heading either to Seoul Train Station, or Kimpo or Incheon Airports, Hongik University Station is on the Airport Line, so there is no need to transfer to get to these places. It takes about 45 minutes to Incheon Airport. I would stay here again if I get to go to Seoul in the future.

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

Good and reasonable accomodation”

Reasonable distance to entertainment and fnb; Clean and comfortable rooms; Friendly staff

The accomodation was good and reasonably-priced. The guesthouse owner Lee was attentive, even checking on the heating system in the room. Guesthouse was within walking distance from the subway station and entertainment/fnb outlets in hongdae, so stayers should have no problems getting to and around hongdae.

Homey Hostel that i ever met”

Every I remember about Seoul, I remember about this place. We stay 6 days here and its very memorable. I cook breakfast every morning to my sisters. And we make many friends here to the other guests from the other country. This hostel manage by turkish guy and his friends, they are so friendly and helpful. And they friends, Korean girl and korean guy is so friendly to, we communicate in english. Turkish guy just tell us, in this hostels is no rules, but only respect the other guests, just that. and we stay there 6 days with a happy ending. Hostel 500 meters from hongik university station exit 2. many convenient stores,cafes here, bakery too. even i shop shrimp freeze in the store surround there. but until we go home, we dont have time to eat pasta in the cafe near this hostel :"( because we always go to tourists attraction from morning until night, everyday. Birdnest hostel is unforgetable place.
