    Good place, simple and clean, nice staffs”

    The hostel is a bit far from subway but it's easy to find. The staffs are nice, kind and willing to help. Some of them may not talk in English but they are trying to communicate. I love their breakfast, it's simple but really nice. The hostel is not big. There are only 2 floors and 1 bathroom on each. The wall is thin though, you can hear others talking outside easily when you're in your room. Anyway, the place is clean, cozy, and lovely.

    I stayed at this guesthouse several times and each time I had a very pleasant stay. The rooms are spacious & clean and the host and employees are extremely friendly (and make very delicious breakfast as well!). Since the guesthouse is located close to the subway, it is very convienent in terms of travelling as well. All in all, great place to stay :).

    Nice homey place to stay!”

    Firstly, my impression for Issue Seoul Guesthouse was the kindness of hosts. They're well welcoming and super caring. The place is well cleaned and lovely. All facilities are prepared. As there's shared bathroom but separate men and women, it's better than other guesthouse i has stayed. It's like you stay at your house but has many rooms and guests stay at the same time. It's located in nice neighborhood too. I'd love to recommend this place for any traveler who looking for a good place to stay in Seoul!

    Felt like we were home”

    We were first time travellers to South Korea, my friend and I. We didn't know what to expect from the place, the people, the culture, etc. But when we got to Seoul, everything was easy and efficient. And Issue Guesthouse added to that experience by being a welcoming and warm guesthouse for travellers. The location was good for being near Hapjeong station; the guesthouse is always clean with the owner and her staff being present everyday and always ready for a nice chat; they also serve breakfast daily which is awesome (coffee is really good); rooms and beds are comfortable, and; the neighborhood is quiet. All in all, we had a very very lovely stay! :-)

    Its a value for money accommodation but a little far from subway. However, many nice eating places along the way so take advantage of the good pork BBQ restaurants and mandu (dumpling) restaurants. The staff is friendly so ask them for recommendations on places to visit. Nice lovely breakfast of rice balls, personally prepared by the owner every morning. Clean, but shared toilet/bathroom.

    Great place for budget traveler”

    Overall it's a pleasant place to stay when you have limited budget. The staff are kind and the room is clean, I also like the location which is quite easy to get to central Seoul. The only thing that bothered me a little bit is the noise, you can easily hear people talking or walking; so if you are sensitive to noise I won't suggest this place to you cause I also got some problem to fall asleep deeply at night. Also noted that there are only two shared bathroom, which means when the house is fully booked, it will take quite long for you to wait in queue for taking bath. And for some reason, the toilet and shower sometimes doesn't work that well.
