Not bad”
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.

Thank you to Adrien and Yuna for being there, they are absolutely adorable and I truly recommend to go out/talk with them. They will always open their arms to everybody and you can see how happy they are to be there. I only stayed with them for less than a month, but I consider them as friends. Merry Christmas, Marie

The staff were adorable, special mention to Joey for being there for me and to Navyla for taking care of Yuna since I left. Too bad we started to really talk with each other when I was almost leaving would have loved talking with them more. This guesthouse is the perfect exemple of the places you should go in Seoul to meet new friends, either for 5min or for life. Marie

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..

A great place to stay, the best from all cheapest places around Hongdae”
I spent almost 2 months in Kimchee Hongdae last summer and it was a great place to stay. I was in 10 beds dormitory room, it was quiet, I always could sleep very well. I enjoyed bathroom in the room and free breakfast (eggs) every morning. Now, after a year I came back to Kimchee Hongdae for one night, this time I was in 6 beds girls dormitory room. I prefer 10 beds mixed room as some girls (especially Asian) are usually always noisy, they get up early and make noise with their luggage or other things... so I could not sleep well in girls room. And unfortunately, there is no more free breakfast nowadays. However, I highly recommend staying in Kimchee Hongdae. The rooms are big and clean, you can be sure the sheets on your bed are washed and clean. (I visited at least 10 other hostels around Hongdae and I can say in many of them they don't wash the beddings after each customer!) I like there are other bathrooms with free soap and shampoo, so you don't have to wait for shower or toilet.

Simple and cheap accommodations in a great location just minutes from Hongdae party area. Bunk beds are a bit narrow compared to the average bunk bed size. Ok for 1-2 nights. Nice social area with pillows and the smoke room is inside.
