        Nice hostel, modern, does everything it needs to do. Separate bathrooms for every room were very nice, lovely facilities overall, great location in an exciting area (Sinchon, Hongdae, Gyeongui Line Book Street), close to a very well-connected subway station (on the ring line, 2). Personal lockers would've sealed the deal, but still a very good hostel.

        I really enjoyed my stay at chocolate tree, they had everything you could possibly need for your trip to Seoul. Breakfast was provided in the morning, laundry facilities on site, I was even able to borrow hair straighteners and a travel adaptor :). The staff were super helpful and the location was very accessible via bus and subway, both very close to the guesthouse! Hope to return for a future stay.

        Great stay”

        Hostel is located just a 3 minute walk from Sinchon metro station, and only one station away from Hongdae, which is a trendy part of the city. The shower water was hot and well-pressurised, and the staff - all of them - were very friendly and helpful. The bed was a little firm, but still comfortable and we fell asleep easily enough after long days out. The Wi-Fi and laundry facilities were great. The dryer didn't quite work as effectively as expected, so keep that in mind. The breakfast provided was great - coffee, tea, toast, eggs and peanut butter and jam all were available. Overall a great stay and would choose this hostel again if available.

        I can’t think of any cons. Everything was good. The staff were very kind and accomodating. Easy check in and check out. Free breakfast include eggs, jam, , bread, coffee and tea. . You can cook anytime in their kitchen. They helped us for the delivery of Jajjangmyeong, Jjamppong and Fried Chicken. Will stay here again the next time I come to Korea.

        Location is up a hill but near subway. I liked the location. Bathrooms were filthy the couple days I was there. No hand soap, no shampoo or body soap etc. Room floors also dirty. Nice they had kitchen area. Free eggs to boil yourself or toast white bread, put peanut butter on. Laundry was free which is nice touch and convenient.

I want to apologize for the lack of toiletries during your stay, Shampoos and body soaps should have been fulfilled in the rooms but it looks like we missed it during your stay.

        the host Eric and his staff are very nice, always smile at me, they are willing to talk to you if you want, and give you space if you don;t want to be disturbed. A very minor imperfect is that the computer is very slow, but it is okay for normal usage. And there is bread and eggs provided all the time, which i personally think that is a big bonus haha You can get all basic things you need from here, i would come again next time!!

        Location is great, only ~5 min. walk from Sinchon station and easy to find. I stayed at this place twice, in a single room and a double room, both had en-suite bathrooms. There is a short slope to get to the hotel and no elevator, but it didn't matter for me because I didn't have much luggage. There's an electronic lock to get into the building, but just a regular key to get into the rooms. I found the beds to be comfortable and the rooms clean. Overall, a decent place to stay!

        We had a basement room at Chocolate Tree and out of three guesthouses that we stayed in Seoul this was by far the best. The room was very spacious and well-equipped with everything we needed. We could have stayed in this room for a whole week! The kitchen facilties were very clean and made our stay even more comfortable. The staff were fantastic and friendly and helped us print out our train tickets. The hostel is conveniently located a two minute walk from a subway station and you can walk to Hongdae in ten minutes.

Big TV so I couldn't resist to switch it on which usually I don't :) Eric is super nice. Sent me an email before I arrived to make sure all well arranged. The direction to the hotel is straight forward, very near to the metro and about 20 mins walk to the Ewha Woman Uni.market. Will stay with Chocolate Tree when I go to Seoul next time

        I would definitely return to this budget hotel when i visit Seoul next time. affordable cost, great location, helpful staff, efficient check in and out. Surrounded by many good restaurants and coffee shops. Nearby 2 subway station (2-5mins walk). A lot of value added service e.g. wifi egg rental, discounted show tickets. It will be perfect 100% score if they offer water boiler in room of one free bottle of water in room. Having said that, they have a small kitchen, common room at basement that guests can use, they provide free water and equipped kitchen (microwave) if you want to cook some easy food like noodle. Very impressive hotel and I will recommend to my friends.
