    It is approximately 5 minutes walk from the Hongik University metro. Clealiness at the guest house is not an issue. This guest house is very similar to the few guesthouse i had stayed previously. There is no common area except the kitchen.

    Not good at all. ”
    I am a customer who live in 6 people mix room 2 nights. My room also 5 customers here, they check out in the morning so just me stay in the room until 11am. I don’t understand why my room is not allowed close the door and window in the morning. Host keeping open my room and window after i close that. And he saw other customers come my room just for make up even if they lives in other room and no one asked me. After that, the host asks me change to other room for that customers when they mention they have other friend will come the guest house. the host asked me “will you stay in the room today? Don’t you go outside?” and change me to the very narrow room but not clean yet. By the way, the host never offer the room key for customers. And some locker no key.

    Walking distance to Airport Railroad , Hongik Univ Station maybe 100m away lol. And near subway station. I was amazed because behind and beside this guesthouse are those samgyupsal restaurants and the shopping streets along hongdae. Mr Kim is very accomodating. He even gave us paper bag for the things we bought. Wifi is good and the room is clean. He also upgraded our room from 8pax mixed to 4bedroom female only. Thank you Mr Kim. I miss korea. Definitely come back and stay here. Very accessible location . 👍

    great location but moody owner”
    the location is perfect, it is located right in front of exit 5 Hongdae station. Clean bath room but the bed sheet was not changed everyday. For no reason, the owner stopped the breakfast, for the last 3 days from the total 6 days stay. And I was too anxious too ask. I still recommend the place for its location and wish the owner would be nicer in the future. People change.

    If you are coming from airport , only takes 2min from Hongdae Station Exit 7 ( Airport Line ) If you are go to Hongdae Shopping area , just a few minute walk. The hostel is surrounded by many kinds of restaurants. Owner Mr Kim is very nice and helpful with good English , so communication is not a problem. Rooms are cozy and tidy (I stayed at double room for one night and single room for 2 nights ) both are pretty big with air con. Beds are comfy. Though there are no private bathroom in double or single rooms , but the shared toilet and bathroom are very clean. Definitely going back next time I visit Seoul !

    I must admit it is one of the best guesthouse in Seoul. I like that it is near Hongik Univ. Station exit 5 (that actually has a lift because not all exits do have elevators/escalators readily available) which makes it easy for me. Mr. Kim is very nice and helpful. All in all I’ll give a thumbs up for this guesthouse. ❤️

    From Hongik Station, took Exit 5 (with escalator), turn right on main street, passing by the construction site (during Nov 2017). You’ll be able to see the green signage of the guesthouse. There are coffee shops and restaurants in nearby blocks. On Exit 5, there is 7/11 convenience store. On Exit 3, you can have picnic at Yeonnam-dong. Coming from Line 2 (Green), better to use Exit 8 (stairs only), in the evening there are may street food you can buy from before going back to the guesthouse. Upon entering the house, you have to take off your shoes and change to provided slippers (remember to always wear socks since the slippers are also shared) Complete review: https://ruffeecola.blogspot.com/2017/11/cocoon-stay-guesthouse-hongdae-hongik.html Good for travelers looking for a very affordable price in a private room that is located at the heart of Hongdae area. It feels safe because this guesthouse don't allow drinking and smoking activities.
