      Wonderful Host and Guesthouse”

      I had a wonderful time at ICOS Hanok Guesthouse. ET imo was very kind and accommodating! She's the nicest host I've met. Excellent location - near the subway and there's a convenience store nearby if you need anything. Met new friends who are also staying at the guesthouse. I recommend staying here if you're on a solo trip - it's very safe and comfortable. I will come back when I visit Korea again.

      Cute tiny hanok house in a really nice local neighbouhood. Short distance, east of Sinchon subway station. Walking distance to Yonsei and Ehwa universities. Lots of family-run eating places - good eats for reasonable prices. Host is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Dorm was a bit small but comfortable.

But when I call for help Imo are very fast to response and picked me up :) also before going back I cought cold and she kindly give me over counter meds. The room itself are exactly what I expected, for a single room there are no other offer that can beat Icos. I will gladly stay in here again if I got another chance to visit Seoul

      Excellent location,5 mins from the Metro Station. There are convenience store, post office, banks and many restaurants around the guest house. Unique experience to stay in a Hanok. But the best part is the atmosphere in Guesthouse,so warm and cozy, you feel like at home. The Boss E.T is the BEST, she take a time to talk with you. about neighborhood, Seoul or Korea. It was so interesting. I met some very nice and funny people there Definitely stay over again when I visit Seoul next time.

      Imo (aunty in Korea) welcomed us with a warm smile and hugs. She even bought us dinner so that solo travelers like me would feel less lonely and make friends. Because of this place, the whole trip became special and memorable. Thank you Imo, I will definitely come back again.

      I stayed at the GH for 2D1N and enjoyed every moment of it. The place is nice and the owner (Mr. Steven) is very friendly and helpful. Due to last minute changes, he was able to accommodate my requests for changes/help. Would definitely come again and recommend this GH!

      Lovely Hanok Stay”

      I am a frequent solo female traveller and this guesthouse is now on my priority list. On my check-in day, I arrived few hours earlier than my expected time. It was my fault for not being able to estimate the time properly. I contacted the host and he told me that he would come in 5 minutes so I would be able to check-in. Upon arrival, he showed me around the neighbourhood, including the eating and shopping places. 3 minutes walk to the Sinchon station, clean and cozy rooms, convenient cooking facilities, well-heated shower. The host was very attentive and kept checking on us to ensure everything went on well during our stay. What else would I ask for? Thank you very much for the memorable and great hospitality. It was not my first time in Seoul, but the experience was a little bit different this time with my stay at this guesthouse. I would definitely stay here again during my future Seoul trips.

      Korean style - loved it!”

      A hanok is a Korean style of house that won't be what most Westerners are familiar with. But if you're fine with leaving your comfort zone, this is a GREAT choice! ET is a lovely host who is personable and easy to contact. The place is easy to find and has everything you need. If you've never seen a hanok before, be aware that the main area is not heated (it was January and darn cold) so you have to walk through the cold to get to the bathrooms. Which are Korean style, meaning the shower head is not in a seperate area from the toilet. Really not a big deal. The bathrooms had one small heater per room and has a toilet seat heater that was on continuously. The bedrooms were heated and there were heating pads on the beds. Basically, ET-ssi provided everything to make the experience as comfortable as possible. Location is great; Sinchon is one of my favorite areas in Seoul. Basically, if you're comfortable with a little more local style and keeping to a budget, this is an excellent choice!

      Great place! Very helpful and friendly, with a good vibe”

      While icos might be a bit small (as it is based inside a traditional Korean hanok house) this enables a very warm friendly vibe. The guesthouse owner is extremely nice and helpful, and as she was previously an English teacher and a tour guide, is an absolute well of helpful knowledge. The rooms and common area were all clean and the place was warm and comfortable despite this being the end of November. Highly recommended :)

      I'm the solo traveler staying in Korea for 10 days here and had some business things to do. Imo, the owner, has helped me a lot, she recommended me good restaurants, places to visit and also helped me with my little business. She also introduced me to others travelers, that made me have a plenty of freinds that time. I, she & other travelers had shared a lot of things. I was even once in the church, although I'm a buddhism, in the party for foreigner student, in the Korean class for foreigner without spending any money. It's super fun though! ^^ I hope I can come back next year and see them again. ♡

      The guesthouse owner Lee is very friendly. She keep in touch with me after I arrive the airport until we meet and she picks me up at the subway station even it is just 3mins walk to her guesthouse. Excellent location. Well-connected wifi. Unique experience to stay in a Hanok(Korean traditional house). I stayed at the upper bunk bed and there is charging place right next to me which is very nice. I feel like home when I stay in Lee's place. Definitely stay over again when I visit Seoul next time. ^^
