Location is superb but need to walk a bit if you're bring strolley with you as elevator across the road (5-7 munute walk) & with good staff response time to time but do no expect daily cleaning service as this fit with the price.

    Disgusting CR”
    Their towels are just a little bit bigger than the face towel. CR is filty. Room is small. They only provide coffee stick and breed for their free breakfast. However, location is just a few minutes walk from the MRT.

    Excellent location, near train station. But the road is quite steep, so it's kind of hard for guest with more than 1 suitcase. But the location is so nice, near ehwa university (you can take pictures there), cosmetics shop also clothes and shoes shop. Staff is friendly, can english and standby until 11 pm. They also write maps if you need airport bus and there is a scale if you want to weigh your luggage.

    Great location and worth the money. The place is clean and its 3 mins walk from Ewha station. ”
    The room and bathroom are super clean but it would be good if a soap and a shampoo is provided. Also the blanket for double bed is not big enough for two person. Overall it was a good experience staying in Sinchon guesthouse. I would recommend this place to other friends and will definitely stay here again.

    I loved the stuff. The girl on duty was like a friend, she gave a lot of friendly advise. The room was very tiny. Breakfast should have more things - not only bread and jam, and peanut butter. I didn't like that they didn't clean the room during the whole time I was there - I was there 7 days.

    Location, comfort, staff
    Good. But we were greeted by drying racks and linen inside the room- shocker. But it was cleaned up pretty quickly. Pros: location, cleanliness, comfortable bed, water dispenser available, bread available. Cons: weak wifi, low water pressure for shower, no lift aka climbing the stairs with luggage( especially since I stayed at the highest floor).

    Location, Hospitality and Helpful staff
    Location is very good, close to subway(ehwa woman university station, exit 1/3), go straight towards the direction which you see watson on your right, when you see Missha store, turn right (YES APM will be on your right) then, the second junction turn left. There you go. Room is considered bigger compare to other guesthouse I have stayed. It's a very comfortable room, breakfast of toast bread, peanut butter, jam and coffee(love their coffee!) is provided (self-service). Staffs are well versed in English, Chinese and Cantonese. No langugage barrier staying there. Will definitely return to stay there as the room is good and location is execellent.

    Good location and decent place to come back to.”
    Good location, staff who can speak english and mandarin, clean
    First off, it is a budget place to stay, so I wasn't expecting much. I arrived near midnight and though I did let the staff know that I will be arriving late(there won't be people there 24/7), it took me 10 minutes of running up and down to locate someone to let me in. The person was friendly and check in was fuss free which was good. Bring your own towel as though they do provide clean towels, it is more like a face towel. The room was clean but the toilet has a musty smell to it(windowless and ventilation was bad). Thank goodness the toilet was not in the room, though we do have our own toilet. Room was small but clean. Breakfast was just bread and jam. Staff will be there in the day till around 11pm at night. Friendly when you need them but basically mind their own business. Location was good though, near to the station and bus stop that leads to the airport. Near the woman university so shopping was good too.

    i chose shnichon guesthouse is because of the ideal location of the hotel. it was only less than 15 minutes driving distance from the train station. i saved a lot from the cad fees. i am so glad and happy when the staff there speaks very fluent english to me and make me felt welcomed. basically, the room was big, clean and i loved the white color theme of the room. there was no worries to find foods as there is a small but complete kitchen at the ground floor. it is convenient to get groceries from the shops nearby. definitely i would like to pay a visit to shinchon guestroom for my next trip to seoul!

    The room was a little small for 3 person but my sisters and i enjoyed the stay. The room is nice and clean. The staff speaks English and Chinese so we have no problem communicating. They did not explain how to use certain facilities or provide us with useful information as compared to other hostel staff but they are very helpful when you request for help. A value for money choice.

    A great guesthouse, especially for the price! wow!”
    New, hotel like rooms with all the facilities you could want
    This guesthouse was more like a hotel than a guesthouse in that the rooms were new, perfectly clean and had everything you would expect in a hotel. But it had the additional advantage of wifi in our room, staff that spoke english and did their best to advise and help out in any way. If you plan to arrive late at night, make sure you contact them first as we arrived at about 1am and there was noone about to let us in. Eventually another guest gave us the contact number of the owner and we called him to get a staff member to help us into our room. Breakfast is provided and is help yourself which was great.

    The place is very comfortable, especially during winter. During our 5 day stay in Seoul, we looked forward to going home to this guesthouse knowing that a warm and cozy room awaits us. The floor of the room is very warm, i guess that's the ondol type. The staff speak good english and are very friendly. The location is perfect, very near the subway and to almost everything! If we have the chance to go back to Seoul, we'll definitely stay in this place again! Thanks Shinchon Guesthouse!
