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.

Noisy beds, the entire hostel looks like a drug den to be honest but don’t judge it by its facade. Was just happy coz the staff were so helpful when i felt my jacket and they were able to retrieve it and kept it for me.

Itchy bed”
Could not sleep because the bed sheets and blankets made me itchy all night. Information sheet in the room states that the rooms are not cleaned on a daily basis, but if requested, cleaning can be done. Had I known the bed sheets and blankets would have made me itchy, I would have requested a clean set of sheets and blankets. But, as it was my first night checking in did I really have to check to see if the sheets were clean? Bathroom was stuffy and toilet paper ran out. Wouldn't stay here for free.

Thank you to the receptionist Suji, who upgraded me to a private room for the price of a dorm, and to Mary for inviting me out to a picnic on the Han River. This guesthouse is like a home away from home~

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.

二度と泊まりません”
私は友達と韓国に行くときはキムチハウスに泊まっていますが、今回初めてホンデに泊まりました。 私たちは女性6人ドミトリーに泊まったのですが、着いて出かける準備をしていると韓国人の男のスタッフが「”コンコン”sorry」と返事を待つことなく当たり前の様に女子部屋にいきなり入ってきて驚きました。もし誰かが着替えてたらどうするの?! 帰り着いたのは深夜3時頃だったので部屋のシャワーは使わず4階の共同シャワーを使いました。深夜にも関わらず、チェックインで見かけた外国人スタッフの大きな笑い声が部屋からだだ漏れていました。洗面で左の壁を見ると黒いカビで覆い尽くされており、ほんの一部だけ何故か白い紙で隠されていたけどなんの意味もないわと思いました。 次の日友達が4階で化粧をしていると勝手に部屋に入ってくる男のスタッフからラインを聞かれたそうです。断れずに教えてしまったばかりにそれからその子にずっと連絡が来るようになり、「夜飲もう」「beer?」など絶対下心あるやんとしか思えないものばかり。しかも断っても夜また私たちの部屋のドアをパッと開けてくるんです!キモ!!気持ち悪くて友達はずっと怯えていました。 チェックアウトの時に恐る恐るレセプションに行くとその男は居なかったので良かったです。しかし、また驚いたことがチェックアウトした後に荷物を置いておけますよね。今回釜山のキムチハウスも利用しましたが、ちゃんと鍵のかかった倉庫に入れてくれました。(部屋もカードキーでとても安全でした)ホンデも同じかなと思ったら普通にレセプション前の共同ルームにポンと置くだけでした…大事な物は鍵付きのトランクに入れて置いたので良かったですが… キムチハウスが好きでシンチョンや東大門、釜山と止まりましたが、ホンデには一生泊まらないかな。セキュリティ面とスタッフの無愛想さガサツさ気持ち悪さ。最悪でした。

Bad security”
The main door of the guesthouse has not locked and everyone can enter every time without password. And the male staff always enter the girls room without knocking the door even after 6pm. And they do not explain the reason of entering and just said "Excuse me ". It was very uncomfortable if we were changing clothes. Also, I put something in the refrigerator, but someone stole my thing. The staff just said " I am so sorry". I make me feel that they do not protect the safety of the guests and also their belongings. I will never choose this guesthouse anymore.
