Very Good, Hospitable Staff, Clean Rooms.”
Very good accomodation and a bang for your buck accomodation. I met lots of different people some of which became friends. The staff members were very nice, laidback, and accomodating. Staff member Marlo was very nice, and even spent a lot of time with us even after her shift has finished. I would stay in this guesthouse again when I go back to Korea and stay at Hongdae. Keep up the good work! 🥰😊
Takes quite a bit of walking from subway exit 2 but the directions was on point so it was easy to locate. The only downside is there's no elevator so I struggled to carry my 20kg luggage up the stairs to my room in the 3/F. In-room safe box didn't have a LOCK so there's no point of storing my laptop and other valuables in there. Also, I see no hairdryer. Other than that everything's good if not great. Highly recommended for budget travelers/backpackers.
I am thankful that my room was upgraded for free. I didn't expect that. The staff are nice and accommodating. The place is a bit far from the station but for those people who enjoy walking, just like me, you will surely like the place. The hostel is in a peaceful area.
Nothing special, just a room to sleep in”
If you are looking for a place to just sleep for a night then this place is ok, but do not expect anything else. The area to hang around and chill is toooo small located at the basement and you can hear everyone's noise.
My only/main issue is that the check out time on agoda is listed as 12 but when i arrived i was given a list of rules, one of them being that the check out is 11am and there's a 10,000W fee for overstaying. Other than that disappointment it was fine. It's in a quiet area, quite far from the party area of Hongdae but close enough to the shops and station and everything seemed clean and spacious. Not my favourite hostel but i'd definitely stay there again as the price was great.
Not really sure as to why this hostel has a lot of positive reviews. Location is 15-20-min walk to the nearest MTR (could be a bit of a problem if you have too many luggages), reception area was very untidy. Room was just okay for sleeping, nothing more, nothing less (bed was very hard & the floors were squeaking). Staff were okay esp. Marjo (i think that’s her name), she was super nice. But all in all, just 5 stars for Marjo, the rest - 1 star.
If you have little more money, better to stay in another hostel”
we stay for two days. when we check in, the staff didnt ask us about our passport or booking refference, they just let us go to our room and they didnt give us room key so we felt uncomfortable about that and we are so worry about safetiness of our luggage. Heater room didnt work, but lucky the blanket was thick so we could still sleep comfortably. I dont recommend you stay here at winter.
Great staff and awesome location! ”
I enjoyed my stay in this guesthouse!! Location is excellent. Situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood but walking distance to the restaurants and bars of the main streets. Marlo, one of the staff there, helped me a lot during my stay. She answered all my questions and recommended many restaurants and activities I can try out. She also taught me basic korean languange and made sure I got all what I needed to be comfortable during my stay. Truly made my stay here more fun and memorable! Will book here again when I come back.
We were staying here for some couple of days and the staff was very kind. They provided us with some useful information. One of the staff members named Jiaxin helped us to pick some amazing coffee cafes. Furthermore, really enjoyed staying here. Very clean!
I really liked the location of the guesthouse! Very close to the Hongdae area were there are a lot of things to do! One of the staff members Jiaxin recommended me and me friend some good places to go! She was very helpful. Besides, the guesthouse was very nice and clean!
First of all, I really enjoyed my stay in Kimchee Guesthouse. The staff was really nice and nice to talk with, especially Jiaxin was really helpfull! She knows a lot about the area. Also the rooms are very nice. Location is perfect. Very close to the subway. Really recommend it! :)
I really enjoyed staying in Kimchee Hongdae Guesthouse! You can make friends easily and the staff is very nice. One of the staff called Jiaxin was really helpful. When i needed information she helped me with it. Also the guesthouse is easily to reach from the subway stations.
The staff is really kind and they help you with anything. Especially one of the staff members named Jiaxin was very helpful.. The guesthouse is also very well located in Hongdae and the accommodation itself was good cleaned.
Wonderful and good cost performance places! ”
Actually i already stay around most of Hongdae district guest house, but there are something problem kinds of unhygienic , unmannerly action toward customers and so on. But here is all of staff care each of guest and try there best effort ! Thanks alot to make great memories on there ! And especially Staff Chris thanks!!!
Located in an alley in the yeonnamdong area, kimchee hongdae guesthouse is just a few minutes walk away from the main hongdae street filled with busking performances, street food, and shopping. The staff were amazing and nice! I hope to come back some time again! SJ!
During my stay here at kimchee hongdae guesthouse I was able to practice speaking korean with the staff members and guests. I enjoyed my time here and would recommend to my friends for a good stay in the hongdae area. Thank you SZ!
I've never been in a guesthouse with such a nice environment. The staff is nice. You can go out with them if you want to know the city. Priscila and some other part of the staff went to dinner with me.
I love kimchee guest house. I would definitely stay again. The guest house is clean and comfortable, and it's near clubs and restaurants. The staff members are really nice. Priscila is really nice and she tried to teach me how to draw
good value for money and a nice place to stay”
the location is in the more quiet side of the hongik university area so you can actually have your good night sleep, but still only a walking distance from the hongik university station and the restaurant and bar areas..
bed in a 10 bed mixed room”
the place was okay considering the price. it is around 2 mins walk from a bus stop and 9mins walk from the metro. the bathroom doorknob is broken, the sockets for charging are not that accessible for some beds, but the receptionists were great.
