We had a very pleasant time at the guesthouse! The family made us feel comfortable there and were very helpful and caring! We would definitely stay there again!
I enjoy the stay at this hanok guesthouse, great experience.
Nice hanok in Seoul”
Pleasant. Nice owner, however speaking very little English. Tiny clean traditional room. Thin walls, so noisy co-guests can be a burden. Breakfast needs improvement.
Traditional Korean Inn”
The inn is a traditional Korean hanok house and is located just steps away from the Samcheongdong hanok area with art galleries, restaurants, and shops. The room itself was cozy and clean with a futon spread out over a heated floor, but shared bathrooms It's a real cultural experience. I would stay again.
For Trial is OK”
It is a special expereience to stay in a traditional Korean House. Although it took 15mins for walking from the subway station, Gain guesthouse is not difficult to find. Gain guesthouse is smaller than I imagined. Eventhough I staied in a family room for 2 people, It was just enough. There is no garden I expert but I appreciate Gain for her very clean and simple environment and I enjoy to stay here, however the price a bit high.
Experienced korean history with comfort”
Although the Guesthouse is slightly further up the hill, it is very easy to find. In addition, the toilet is indoor, big and very clean. Everything (towels, soap, shampoo, toothpaste) were provided for us. The owners checked what time we would like to have breakfast and promptly prepped our breakfast in the kitchen. It really has a nice ambiance to it.
It is a pleasant stay in Gain”
I am very glad that I choose Gain Hanok Guesthouse for my stay in Seoul. My Korean friend warned me before I go that those traditional style house could be very cold during the night because the door are made of wax paper, just like the old Asian movie and you need to go outside the court for bathroom but this is not the case for Gain. Their bathroom are actually inside the house so you don't need to go outside, and even though the door are made by wax paper, it is not that cold at all as the floor is heated, I actually feel hot during the night. Seoul temperature was about 25F during the day when I was there. Breakfast is American style, including cereal, milk, cream soup and toast. The homemade strawberry jam is the best. This hostel is hosted by a couple who also living in the house, they are super nice. They know basic English so communication is not a problem. The hostess showed me places to visit around the area. She also helped me to look for bus schedule when I told her when I leave. Actually I just want to tell her that I have a early flight (8:30am) in the morning and want to know how to check out, but she and her husband are so eager to help and the husband ended up drove me to the Limousine Bus station at 5:20am. Gain is located inside Bukchon Village, one of the must see area. It is about 20 mins nice walk to Jong-no 3 ga or 15 mins to Anguk station. You can take Limousine Bus 6011 or 6002 from ICN and walk up to the hostel. One thing to aware is that the address listed in agoda (1-38, Gahoe-dong) actually can’t be found around the area. The hostel is between Bukchon-ro and Bukchon-ro 11 gil. Just search by hostel name on google and you should see a lit sign "Gain" when you get there. Let me sum up here: Nice traditional Korean style housing, Friendly staff, Great Breakfast, Clean Bathroom, Fast Internet, Close to Bukchon village and Jong-no district. So if you are looking for something different, Gain is your choice.
Autumn Seoul ”
Friendly & comfortable~”
Unique experience - local hospitality - traditions”
It was a pleasant stay. Mr Min is very welcoming and immediately showed me a map of the local area. Situated between Changdeokgung and Gyeongbokgung - easily reached my bus and then a short walk. You have to tell the owner Mr Min when you are leaving at night and roughly what time you will be back, this is not a hostel experience. Whilst I was staying there are 2 family's with children and you need to be respectful to other guests. Breakfast consisted of meat soup, Korean coffee and bread. You can have cereal as well. I would highly recommend this place as then owner went out his way to help - he dropped me on the last day at Gyeongbokgung subway as so I didn't have to change lines to get to Gimpo.
It was calm and very rustic”
Wonderful, tradition hanok stay”
The owner is very friendly n can speak some English. He even provide advise on where to visit. Breakfast is a simple western type with pumpkin soup.
Unique homestay experience, in a nice area”
The room is clean and comfortable. The owner and family are very friendly and warm people. Excellent experience for a Korean homestay. The location is superb, in the very cultural and colorful area. However, there is no WiFi provided, and it could be a little noisy in the day, as the area is filled with tourists. Only the owner speaks English, not the rest of the family.
Cultural experience in Bukchon ”
It was very interesting to stay in a traditional Korean ondol house. The place was a little difficult to find but the people in Korea were very friendly and took us there personally.
Comfy Hanok Guesthouse”
The owners are very nice and helpful, e.g.still offer us the breakfast (i.e. toast, cereal, milk, orange juice, coffee) even though we wake up at 11am. The room is comfortable and washroom, bathroom are very clean. For the location, this Hanok is 15mins walk from Anguk station. There's a shuttle bus from Auguk station to this Hanok, the bus station is just next to the Hanok. This is extremely helpful when you are off to the airport with heavy luggages.
No window, difficult to find the location. Room very small.
an interesting experience”
the main attraction of this guesthouse would be the traditional Hanok experience. Room is small but very homely and comfortable. there is also floor heating system. Host is super caring and polite and location is near Anguk Station and the famous Bukchon Hanok Village. A must-try.
lovely hanok and perfect location”
we stayed 2 nights with a group of 6 friends and reserved 3 double ondol. the hanok is small, clean and very pretty. location is perfect for walking around in the bokchon area which offers a lot of traditional houses as well as small shops and plenty of coffee and tea places. breakfast is continental (toast, cereals, juice, soup etc..). the owner speaks enough english to give suggestions about places to visit in seoul and restaurants. finally, the most important thing for us was the extreme politeness, sweetness and care of the owner and his family. i would highly recomend this hanok!
I loved the house. It was beautiful, simple, clean and very homey. We had a little difficulty finding it, but we were driving ourselves. I'm sure if you take a taxi there you'll be just fine. It's a little out of the way from other attractions, so be prepared to take a taxi or the subway to where you need to be. The host was a very friendly man and made us feel welcome. The beds were surprisingly comfortable considering that they are basically just mattresses on the floor! The atmosphere in the morning was lovely, with classical music playing and the table set for us for breakfast.
