I had a wonderful stay at the Cocoa Guesthouse. The staff are very welcoming and they engage in small conversations to make you feel at home :) The guesthouse is very clean especially the bathrooms and shower and there is an enough number for every floor. I went there during winter season the only downside is, it doesn't have centralized heating but they provide a heater for each room and the walls are thin you can hear the conversations of the adjacent rooms.

It has minor setbacks but I will definitely book here again if i go back to Korea ❤
Very good value!!”
Location is fantastic if you are young and/or enjoy going out!!! It is in the middle of Hongdae neighborhood, you can find anything within walking distance. It is recently renovated guesthouse. I have been to many guesthouses in Seoul, but this guesthouse is the first one with plenty of good-sized shower rooms. It is great to have plenty of shower rooms. Unlike some guesthouses, they provide shampoo/body soap and conditioner as well. The staff members/owner are very kind and respectful people. They work very hard. I have to mention this is first guesthouse ever in my life that starts offering breakfast at 7:00 a.m. If your plans require you to start your day early, it is fantastic to have the breakfast early. 2 kinds of cereal, bread, toaster, butter, jam, milk, and orange juice provided. I highly recommend this guesthouse. Also, unlike some hostels/guesthouse they also provide free towels which is always very helpful for travelers.
Perfect location, Very kind & helpful staff, Clean room but a bit small for us.”
Overall is great experience to stay at Cocoa guesthouse, unique interior design, very kind & helpful staff. Location is very strategic if you want to use subway or bus. Our experience using bus is very easy, just a few steps to bus station, bus 7011 let you get down to Namdaemun directly. we prefer bus better because it's easy n convenient. Room is clean, but a bit too small (subject opinion), i got double room with shower, but there is no closet. I thought it's already include both closet n shower. but that's not a big deal. The staff is very very helpful & kind. He helps us a lot during our check out time. Our suitcase are very heavy & he helps us a lot by taking it down the stairs.
Great guest house”
I was traveling seoul to meet some of my friends, so I had to stay in some guest houses. Cocoa guest house was the best among the guest houses that I have stayed. Staff there was so friendly and nice. The room was so clean and comfortable. Location was in the center of Hongdae area, and it was close to sangsu station. If I should stay in Hongdae area, I'll definitely stay in this Guest house.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Cocoa Guesthouse. The guys from the reception were kind and helpful, everything was clean and there were enough showers and toilets. And the location is fantastic :-)
Great value for trips to Seoul”
I was pleasantly surprised about the quality services Cocoa provided. 1) The management kept checking n cleaning the corridor, kitchen area and empty rooms very often - saw its staff cleaning from morning until noon. 2) Provided with “basic and sensible necessities” such as clean towels, hair dryer, shampoo, hair treatment, body cleanser, facial cleanser, and even moisturizing lotion.. 3) One little minus, breakfast menu was the same while I stayed - So every morning, I had loafs of bread with strawberry jam and orange juice. lol
This is my first time to go to Korea ,and COCOA make me have good memories . Best location,it's near the club so you can go that and don't need to worry about how to go dack the hotel . Great stuff ,very nice, kindly . good breakfast, cereals was awesome. If I can I'll stay there again.
It is 3 stories high with no elevator, so it can be a hard task for those with large baggages. The facilities are clean and staff are very friendly. For breakfast, very simple bread with jams, I had hoped there were eggs but there was none when I stayed. It's a good location if you are the type to go to clubs and karaoke bars. But it can be a long walk to the hongik stn. But a good way to walk through hongdae and see what it offers
Everything is perfect!”
It's very well located that it is an only 10 min walk from Hongdae Station where we take the airport express. Though there are lots of bars in the street but I don't find it noisy at all. Facilities are good enough and the staff are very helpful. WIFI signal is strong. I will definitely recommend my friends to stay here!
Amazing staff will hook you up to the Cocoa Guesthouse!! ”
In addition to kind and professional staff members, you will be glad you chose this guesthouse. It is clean. Good number of showers and toilets unlike many guesthouses in the area. Free breakfast of cereal, toast, butter,jam and juice is always great to have as well. :)
Very nice place in excellent Location.”
The guesthouse was great, super clean and comfortable in the best location.The staffs were very helpful and nice.The place are surrounded by bars and nightclubs.I'd recommend this spot for those who enjoy night-life activities. I had a wonderful time in here soI'll see you guys later. :)
Great stay (made an awesome friend)”
The facilities were great here. Clean and spacious rooms, bathrooms, and common areas. The location can’t be beat with so much to do in the area. I met some great people in hongdae and the staff was very nice which made my trip!
Love this place so much ”
The host is really enthusiastic and nice. He helps us to carry our heavy luggage. There are a lot of toilets and bathrooms. Don’t need to wait for my friends. Definitely will come back when I have a chance to travel Seoul again
Good value for money and convenient”
Staff was friendly. Location was perfect to explore Hongdae. Only gripe is pillows and towels were smelly.
Convienent Location. Comfortable.”
Convenient location that is walking distance from the subway and to shopping areas in Hongjae-dong. Hostel is tucked by an alley but the staff provided helpful directions prior to check-in. There is a three story climb up the stairs to the lobby (no elevator) so keep that in mind when bringing a lot of luggage. The staff were all very friendly from check-in to helping me with calling a taxi and bringing my luggage downstairs. Room was small and simple but sufficient for a one night stay. Bathroom and shower facilities were very clean.
located in the very busy pub areas..”
Hotel room is very basic, but everything else is pretty good considering the price
Very good ”
The location was not far from the subway, the room was very clean, the staffs were very friendly and helpful. The only thing that we felt missed was that they didn't provide iron for clothes. Other than that, everything was excellent.
We arrived late from the check in time. Supposedly check in time is until 11pm but we arrived past 1am. We got lost. But still, Jinu accommocated us. He oriented us about the place, the facilities and the rules in the guest house. We enjoyed our stay for the value of the money that we spent, it was worth it. Breakfast was good, athough it would be better if we can cook. But that is just minor. The guest house was clean and well maintained. I love the facial foam which i looked for in the beauty shops and i got one at Natures Republic! Thank you, Jinu and Jeremy for welcoming us! It was indeed a great stay!
Pros Near Sangsu station Booked a quadruple room and the rate is very affordable, Clean, staff is very friendly, with simple breakfast like bread with butter and strawberry Jam. Cereal, juice, tea or coffee Con No lift
Small room for couple but very clean and comfort. Great location: many store nearly there and take 10' walk to MRT. And the owner guys are super kindly!
