    Convenient location, multilingual staff”

    LIKE: convenient location, safe, neat, clean surfaces, receptionists spoke English DISLIKE: Staff said the main switch to rooms' aircondition are turned off from Oct onwards but it was 24deg C that weekend. The room was hot and stuffy. It took many guests to complain before the staff turned on the main aircon switch. Staff said their toilet cannot flush down toilet paper and instructed to throw used toilet paper into the trashbin instead. This is smelly and not hygienic. Hotel said its location is only a few minutes from Hongdae station exit3 but no map was given. We did not arrive by train, so the word descriptions were not useful. We searched for 10+min before finally finding it in the correct lane. The landmark to turn into Baroato's lane is the Innisfree shop. Then continue on for about 50meters. Pay careful attention and look for the hotel signage on a low stand (which is easily blocked by vehicles parked there). NOTE: the provided breakfast is just 1 cupcake, 1 cookie and 1 small cordial can drink hung outside your door in the mornings. Water dispenser in the common area serves 3 temperatures- hot, normal and cold. Main door and room door are accessed by password numbers. No receptionist after 11pm.

    The room is big and nice, the location is really good and not far from subway. Only one worse for me was that...there are no lift!!! If u have the heavy big luggage then make sure you are strong enough to carry up there to the lobby and to the room.

    The location is very convenient, but the room is too small.”

    The room is too small and lacks of end table. It’s so inconvenient that you have to eat on the floor or bed because the “only” table is far away from the TV. The room is suitable for one person who travel with less luggages. However, the location is really convenient!

    Execellent Budget Hotel”

    They don't have elevator so you will have to carry your staffs on stairs. But it's not a problem as you can ask for help if you really can't handle it. Staff are very nice and helpful and one of them could speak Cantonese. Very good location. It's just 5 minutes walk to Hongik Uni Station Exit 3. Simple and lovely breakfast are included and they provide different food every day. Will difintely stay again if I visit Seoul in the future!

    I stayed in a shared bunk and am impressed with the impeccable service. The staff was responsive to my queries prior to arrival. The room was generally clean and comfortable. Location was great as well, and was slightly away from the noisy side of Hongdae. Highly recommended!

    Very clean room, nice fancy warming floor, nice location only 4mins from subway station, free flow water, fast internet, the downside only the small size room, and inconsistent warm water of the shower. Other things are excellent. Would definitely stay here again for Hongdae area.

    It’s a guest house not a hotel!”

    The name is very misleading, it might be a nice guest house but def not a hotel. I needed an iron, there was no solution. I booked the double room, but couldn’t have a nice sleep because the room door is just a few cm away from the reception desk. No need to mention that the walls are paper thin and you can even hear the steps from the other room.

    Good”

    It is quite difficult for my family and I to find where the hotel is as it is not located at the main street. And there is no lift in the hotel, it is quite harsh for us to take the luggages in. The hotel room for two is not spacious. We can barely open one luggage, so not to mention opening two at the same time. Yet, they have nice service as there is breakfast hanging outside the room door every day and they are willing to answer questions.

    It's very impressive since arrived earlier checking time, the staffs are very nice. But few days later, when I back to rest at afternoon (might be 6/13), the duty staff talked bad language about "Taiwanese" behind another room's guests.(almost yelled and loudly) I think it might be something happened before I backing, but it's really not a good attitude to yelled customers behind especially I came from Taiwan as well and makes me very uncomfortable.
