          dongdaemun guest house is highly recommended for group or backpackers or on a budget trip”
          the location is verty near to subway and bus stops. . Mr. Noah Kang , the owner is very helpful and approachable. We stayed there for 7 nights and we are very comfortable and safe. This is a two floor buildiing, so even if your room are upstair its easy to come up and down, unlike the first guesthouse weve stay last year near seoul station, we were put on the 6th floor with no elevator. so imagine for 4 days your going up and down on the 6th floor using the stair. In Dongdaemun you are near to every thing, you can cook your food, and the free meals are available anytime you want. By the way guesthouse are very different from hotels so dont expect a very cozy room and facilies. For me, the price we pay for the rooms is very reasonable . Thank you very much Noah Kang

          Good place but think carefully ”
          Pros, near with subway station. Very great staff. Able to drop luggage even before check in time. Great place just to sleep. Comfortable bed and pillow. The room got hair dryer, iron, tv, fan, air conditioner. Got private toilet. Cons, old building, but not very old. Messy lobby and kitchen. Very small room. Refrigerator in room cannot be used. Got breakfast but only bread, jam,milk and cereal. The road very dark and scary at night. Even near with subway station, the location is not in tourist area. Conclusion. This place very good place for sleep only because all basic necessities provided. 2 stations away from dongdaemun, but quite far from hongik university. But good value for money. You get with what you pay.

          Good : Very close to the subway (Shinseol-dong Ext 1) around 50m, the guy (receptionist) is very helpfull. He even wait and help us carry our super duper heavy luggages downstair when we check out at 5 am. He is very helpfull in many things. Bad : The sewarage system is really bad (smell like urghh). You need to close the bathroom door all the time to make sure the room is not too smelly. For someone who is height with 175cm above you need to be careful with ceiling since their ceiling is low. But, overall is nice and affordable since you need the room for rest and sleep only.

          The owner is very accommodating to our requests. The guesthouse is comfortable and about a short walk to the train station. Note though that if you are carrying heavy luggage, you might want to request to stay at the first floor. :)

          Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Seoul Sinseol dong it was a perfect place with ensuite toilet and free breakfast. The location was great, not far from all the top tourist destinations. Tried to contact you but this seemed like the only way, we were wondering if you could keep the green innisfree bottle from the fridge on hold till we get back in 8 days. We're from room 102 we will come to claim it on the 28th, please let us know if this is possible. Thank you, best wishes! Would highly recommend.

          The best budget-friendly guesthouse to stay in when you're in Seoul. It's so close to subway (sinseol-dong) station. Also, it's located in a safe and quiet neighborhood that's why you can enjoy your trip without worries 😊 Most importantly, Mr. Kang is really helpful towards guest's concerns and needs. You can ask him anything and anytime all throughout your stay. This guesthouse has complete facilities which will make you feel just like home 😊

          Solid budget accommodation in Seoul”
          Seoul is an expensive city and this was one of the cheapest places we could find. We enjoyed our stay. The room was small, but clean with comfy beds and a hot shower. It also has a small desk and TV that we didn't use. The hostel provided breakfast of milk coffee, juice, water, bread, and jam. Nothing fancy, but it keeps the belly full for the first few hours of the day. The owner was very welcoming and messaged us directly with directions to the hotel and instructions for check in. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here again our next time in Seoul.

          Room is unavailable at check-in on 7 April as booked. Host brought us to live at Sinseol residence where doesn't have breakfast, no room make-up along 6 nights, fire escape door is locked and luggage storage area is accessible by anyone. However, Dongdaemun gussthouse's host provided us a breakfast instead. It is poor management of guesthouse and Agoda. But still thanks for host hospitality.

Access from exit 1 will see a 7-11 at the T junction, at the junction turn to the left n walk straight for 40m, guesthouse is at the left. We enjoyed the morning breakfast in the small kitchen even just only bread & juice n milk but the value added for the family member to sit together is priceless. Thanks

          The location is about two minutes walk from the local underground exit and was really well connected. The surrounding area had some good food and it was really close to a 7-11. There isn't much in the rooms; there are no toiletries or free water, but this isn't the type of place that you should expect those things. The water was hot, the sheets were clean, it had a TV and hairdryer, and was in a quiet location! It was more than my friends and I even hoped for! Breakfast in the morning is just toast, jam, and juices but it's enough to get you started on your day! There are certainly enough electrical outlets in the room (note: they are the European two prong sockets). Noise from the hallway does carry at night, but luckily the people that were staying at the same time as us didn't stand in the hallway and talk to each other. The rooms are really dark at night, which is perfect for a good night's sleep after a day of exploring Seoul. Overall, I know I would stay here again in a heartbeat! It was safe, convenient, clean, and affordable. If you want to live in your room while you travel, this isn't the place for you; but if you want a comfortable place to come back to at night then stay here!
