Good location & cheap price. ”
Pros: The owner is really nice and the metro station is just 2 min away. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and a big super-market in walking distance (600m) Cons: The whole place is really dirty, especially the community kitchen. It's not a place where you want to prepare food. The room is quite small, there are no mosquito nets, so you have to fight them at night. You've got the typical shower-toilet which was fine for me. Overall the owner is very nice and you get what you pay for :)
We’ve stayed here last June with my family and my sister. The guesthouse is very cheap but you’ve got more value for your money since the space is enough for us and the room is very clean since Mr. Kang himself is cleaning it everyday. The location is perfect since the subway and bus stops are very near. Lastly, Mr. Kang (the owner) is very accommodating and nice (and cute oppa 🤣😂) he allowed us to check in very early and even allowed us to stay while waiting for our driver going to the airport. Thank you, Mr. Kang! 😉 would definitely recommend this guesthouse to everyone! 👍🏼👍🏼
Good Price for who in tight budget”
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.
dongdaemun guesthouse review”
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. :)
great stay amazing place close the subway”
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.
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.

The best budget-friendly guesthouse in Seoul!”
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 😊
Near subway exit No 1 or No 2. Very nice location and value for money. Nice staff Smell of fungus in the bathroom. I found spread of black mold beneath toilet bowl. It would be nice if it is cleaned and disinfected.
Located at Sinseoldong新设洞 Metro Station exit 1 n 2. 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
Good location and Great staff”
Around the guesthose has a lot of restaurants. Some of them are famous. I had pork bbq where is the best ever. Near 7-11 and convenince store.Close to Subway line 1 which you can get to Airport by train.Staff is very nice. We arrived there earlier than check in time. He let us to check in. So we could take a rest before going out.
Last Minute Booking”
Great value for money and excellent location for airport bus, underground and shopping. Ground floor room had a damp smell, but 1/F room was fine. Kitchen was a bit cramped if you have more than 4 people. Overall very satisfied.
Happy i have booked on this place”
Location is quiet and very near the train station. Nice staff. Clean. Enjoyed their breakfast. Have refer this place to my friends and i will definitely book on this guesthouse again on my next visit to korea.
Perfect affordable homebase”
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!
Worth your money”
If you looking for cheap, clean, easy to check in and out and no issue for staying in small room, dongdaemun guesthouse is a good choice. Free breakfast. Very near to subway station. But, the wifi connection is poor if you stay in above floor. Need to go to pantry if you want fast wifi connection. No market like myeongdong or namdaemun, but still, its good for you. Lol. It save a lot of your money. Overall, the guesthouse is good. Maybe I will stay there again in future.
cheap place to stay”
The place is easy to find. Rooms are cleaned everyday. Staffs are very helpful. Room price is cheap too. One thing not so good about this place is the kitchen. Its too small for a group. Theres no lobby.
Takes 2 minutes walk to/from metro station. The area is quiet in the night. Highly recommend for travellers that doesn't mind small room. The owner was very nice.
A few steps from Dongdaemun station. Room is ok.
