              I open visit seoul for short time. This time i found Housetay. Housetay was just near Subway station(2min by walk). And i guess they reopened new guesthouse. So i was clean enough. I am sure i will stay again. By the way, Thanks you for help me to buy Bigbang ticket. See you soon

              Disappointing Hostel for a Relatively High Price”

              We booked this hostel for New Year's Eve weekend, because most other places in Hongdae were booked. This is the second time I've stayed with Housetay (but at a different location); my first experience was rather disappointing as well, but as it was very cheap, that was to be expected. This time, we paid about 35,000 won per person per night-- the priciest hostel I've been to in Korea-- but we expected this because of the holiday weekend and the fact that the only room available was a private triple. For this price, however, I would have expected exceptional facilities and service, which was most certainly not the case. In short... the beds were hard and uncomfortable, there were no towels provided until we asked (and even then, they did not arrive until about an hour after we requested them), there was no breakfast provided (which we knew ahead of time, to be fair, but every other hostel I've stayed at in Seoul has provided it), the hot water was unreliable, and the lighting in the rooms was dim. On the positive side, the location is good-- out of the busy and loud part of Hongdae, but well within walking distance of all the shopping, clubs, restaurants, subway station, etc. But the only way I would ever recommend this place to a friend is if there were absolutely nowhere else available.

              The location was really excellent! i love how it is at the center of Hongdae. It is also near the subway station. Restaurants and shops are everywhere. What i don't like is that there's only one bathroom per floor and it is not cleaned everyday. Bathroom should be thoroughly cleaned. Also no trash bin inside the bedroom. The room is a bit cramped but it's alright for the price. The design of the room is really cute too.

              this place is in the middle of hongdae shopping street so you sure can enjoy your night life here. the kitchen is on the 2nd floor so i recommend you to book a single room type, you'll feel much more comfortable to do anything. share toilet, not so clean but acceptable cause there're lots of women there. to be honest, this place is very fine, if you want to spent you nights or just for store you bags for a super cheap price, it is gotta be on the very first of your list. :)

              Great location, very near to subway. Hongdae very happening during night & you can explore around by walking. 1st day when I arrived the bathroom was too dirty but on 2nd day there's ahjumma came to clean the bathroom. There's no locker but i'm fine with it. Dorm secured with code door but the male staff came inside whenever they like. They didn't change the bedsheet. So far im enyoing my stay at this guesthouse.

              Cheap but”

              It's located in the back of a dead-end street/corner, so be careful not to miss it out. There are 2 floors in the house. The doors are locked with codes so it's safe, and even the doors of the dorms have codes. The toilet is a narrow, you have to turn sideways when you are on the toilet. There's a shower. The beds have curtains to hide from the others. The staff is nice. However, there was one big problem: my dorm where I slept in was soooo hot it was really uncomfortable to sleep. I don't know why it was so hot but all the other guesthouses I've been in didn't have this problem.

              i stayed in a room with 3 double decker beds. limited space to move around, if you're big you may have some problems. toilets are cleaned everyday, just that the waiting time will be long during peak timings. location wise, it might be a little difficult to find as here are no obvious signage- beside GS25.. near to hongdae district and there are many restaurants around.. near to hongik university station (green line) overall stay was decent

              Great place to spend less money on hostel”

              I rend a dorm with 6 bunk bed and share it with other 4 travellers. The facilities is basic but worth it. The place is quite near with metro and cafes or shops so you can enjoy it in the boring cold night. The staff are superb!! they work efficient and so much helpful. One night I felt so cold in my room and thought the heater was off. Then I send message to the staff living below floor to ask them if the heater was off? And then about 15 mins. they are coming to our room to tell that heater is on but maybe take time to make the room warmer. I just appreciate what they do. Good job for them!

Room a bit small if all traveler bring a big luggage. Owner was very nice and can speak English so oversea traveler was no problem to communicate.

              Really near the center but less privacy, untidy room, & no one to call at night in case of emergency”

              It was not our 1st time in seoul..We chose the place mainly because of its location and we weren't disappointed on that part. However, we noticed that though someone comes to clean the place daily, the room was cleaned properly. The bedsheets didn't feel and smell clean and it was dusty under the bed. We were surprised to see dirty clothes that wasn't ours under the bed, which made us wonder if someone really cleaned our room before we came. So we also thought it was unreasonable to impose the strict checkout time policy just because the person who CLEANS the rooms starts cleaning at the exact time, since for us she DOESN'T really clean well. Also, no admin stays at night so if there's some trouble, you have no one to call, just like when the heater didn't seem to be working and other guests were bothering our sleep. It was impossible to ask for assistance at night. Moreover, the room divisions were so weak that we could even hear the guest next door talking and snoring.

              You got what you’ve paid”

              The place is situated in a small alley which is not easy to find. You gotta go to the basement where the door isn’t locked. Then you’ll find a notice left by the guesthouse. You gotta add his KakaoTalk to contact cuz there’s no one there. (It’s a little bit confusing when you arrived but they reply quickly.) Then you’ll get the pin and room number. The water in the bathroom isn’t warm enough and also the room on 1 floor doesn’t provide the heat. However, the bed is comfortable enough to have a good sleep.

              This is my second time for this branch, it is a bit hard to reach staff this time since early morning we've been out and back after 6pm.The business hour around 11am-6pm only.For self check in is really helping us since we're arriving after business hour.Please always update new password for ground floor (common use) since the number on memo is totally different with the current password.There is always wifi problem, since we've trying many times and give up to use it.

              It was just so so, and I don't want to come back there again”

              The location is good, only 5 mins walk to the Hongik Univ. metro gate 9, however, it's very very hard to find as well as to guide. About the staff, thanks to the friendly guy whom i met on the first day there that I put 3 stars, otherwise no impression. The thing that disappointed me the most is the cleanliness. Everywhere is dirty and messy, even though they clean up every day. Only one toilet shared with many people, always full of bottle and not clean at all. When i checked out, i saw that girl she didn't changed the bed sheet or pillow at all, only folded blanket and left (i had stayed for 4 nights). Also, on the first night, i saw a big spider!! Another girl in my room said she saw another one (because when we described how big it was, we know there were at least 2 spiders). In conclusion, you can stay there if your travel budget is limited, or you just need a place to sleep for one night. Otherwise don't!

              The bathroom was not up to snuff but not filthy. The bed was ok, the room wasn't the one I was supposed to be in either but it was fine. For a night, Its cheep and in a good location. I probably wouldn't stay there for comfort or fun as there isn't any common area either but for a night or 2 it's safe, fairly clean and accessible.

              Ewwwww”

              I've stayed in about a dozen hostels in Seoul now due to working far enough out of the city it's easier just to sleep here. All have been in a similar or lower price range and good location but none have been anywhere near as bad as this one. I arrived very late at night with no pillow or towel on my bed, bugs in the main room and no soap (or any toiletries of any kind to substitute) in the bathroom or kitchen and the place was a bit gross so it was really needed. I stayed in a F 4bed, one occupied bunk had a curtain but all the others were broken and absent. It seemed like one girl had been here a while as half the room was covered in her things including clearly dirty clothes on the floor and she had taken the pillow from the bed above too which wasn't replaced by staff the next night for a new arrival who slept without. The free bunk below me, which had been empty and dirty for at least 2 days was eventually made but with the same sheets, nothing cleaned at all....ewwwww. Avoid lol
