    Nice location and nice CP value”

    It is located near myeongdong station exit 2/3 for 5 min walk. There are a few cafes, restaurants and convenience stores around there. Also, there is Isaac Toast store around there. The room is small but satisfactory. Individual toilet is in the room which is very convenient. The staff are friendly and willing to help. There is public space at B1 floor which provided iron, microwave and coffee machine. Overall speaking, I had a pleasant stay there.

    Clean, New, Modern”

    Cons: Their breakfast only have toasts and coffee. We didn't bother to stop by for breakfast. Bathroom design is very nice, new and modern but not practical. Water will flow out into the room if u r not careful and graceful when you are bathing. And check out time is 10am, too difficult for a late sleeper like me. Pros: Room is new, modern renovations, and very clean. Thumbs up for the cleanliness. Toilet bowl is awesome like those Japanese modern comes with computerised screen to adjust bidet, flush and heating element for the winter. Bed, pillow and comforter is comfy. Overall good experience. Will be back.

    Amazing Location. Nice Staff. Worth the Price”

    It is located near Myeongdong (about 5 mins walk), which I personally like because it is somehow away from the noisiness of Myeongdong. It is hard to locate but you just need to properly follow the instructions to get there and do a little bit of research. The rooms is equipped with high-tech lighting etc. However, the rooms are really small (it is a budget hotel after all) but I find the rooms very cozy. Though you might want to get the bigger rooms if there are a lot of guests. Breakfast was ok (eggs, bread, and coffee). atleast they have breakfast and there are a lot of convenience store and restaurants nearby so eating is not really a problem. Overall, totally worth the price! cozy, new rooms for a very low price. I'll definitely stay here again next time!

    Clean, comfortable and modern stay”

    Very high-tech and modern. Had a comfortable stay. Room was very small but sufficient for solo travellers with little luggage. Two would be a little tight and if you have big/bulky luggage. The location left a lot to be desired though and you have to pass some dark alley if travelling at night. Overall a very pleasant and comfortable experience stay. Would recommend to people with little luggage.

    Room was clean, excellent location and nice and helpful stuff. But there was a huge problem with the shower hot water pressure. Complaint about this at the reception, they we're nice and tried to help by offering me two different room that was available but both was with the same issue. They told me that it will be fixed on the next day, stayed there 4 nights but the issue was still on during my whole stay and therefore I showered with cold water.

    EXCELLENT hotel for the value price paid! location is minutes to shopping haven Myeongdong. Also able to walk to Namsam. Plenty of yummy restaurants nearby. Room was a bunk bed. superbly clean, modern, with amenities provided. Continental breakfast provided. Self help iron provided at basement. Great Wifi speed. 10mins walk to airport shuttle bus. Only need to have a bigger display signage of hotel as it is easily missed at a corner. Will definitely return for next stay.

    Affordable & clean accomodation w/ friendly staffs”

    It's looking good and clean, near station and shopping district, and eventho the staffs cant speak english well, they always smile and greet you everytime they see you.

    The room is looking good and clean. The breakfast was so limited, just toast w/peanut butter or boiled eggs. The staffs couldnt speak english well but they try their best to be friendly to us. The hot water sometimes wouldnt come out, but we just rang and told them and it will come out in a minute. The location was so perfect for me, 1min to convenience store (so glad, i forgot to bring toothbrush with me and it was late night already) or chinese restaurant, 4mins to pharmacy (so convenience, i got diarrhoea at the time), station, and shopping district. Overall, it was great and i'd come back here next time because it was worth the price.

    I like this guesthouse so much! All staff are very nice! They're all working with service mind. Help us very much to solve our problem! The room is clean. They will give a big towel in the room (not all the guesthouses in Korea will give you like this) Location is good but a bit hard to find at first time, It's located in the hill near convenient store. I got the good experience after stay here :D

    The guesthouse was very conveniently located - just a few minutes walk from Myeongdong station and the Myeongdong shopping street. Also located along the way to N Seoul Tower. There are many good eateries around the guesthouse and two convenience stores located there. The staff was nice and friendly. Breakfast is provided, but that usually consists of toast, coffee and juice. The room was small but cozy. All in all I enjoyed my 5 night stay there!

THE STAFF IS VERY VERY ACCOMODATING AND IS ALWAYS READY TO HELP US OUT. Would really consider booki g in Lookhome the next time I visit Seoul again.

    2nd time staying at Lookhome Guesthouse!”

    For the location, convenience and the price -- this place is pretty hard to beat. :) Myeongdong is just across the street (maybe a 5-10 minute walk for slow walkers like me), but it's still in a quiet neighborhood filled with small restaurants, convenience stores and cafes. SUPER close to Myeongdong Station Exit 2 (5 minute walk). Pretty close to some big duty free malls as well. Airport bus makes a stop directly at Myeongdong, so it's pretty easy to get to from the airport, whether you're coming in via train or bus. Staff are super helpful as well, especially the owner/manager. Rooms are small, but they're packed with a lot of essentials (shampoo, loofa, body wash, blow dryer, fresh towels daily, etc), so this place is very ideal for budget travelers.

    DONT CHOOSE IF YOU DONT WANT TO SMELL THE TOILET YOUR WHOLE STAY”

    Room are extremely small with crazy design that you can barely open the luggage. Toilet is just 1 meter away from your bed with no appropriate door so you can basically smell every terrible thing. The worst experience was that the water, my gosh, muggy water color was running for like 10mins so we decided to quit washing that evening, also we'd like to post the video clip of dirty water here. Staff was okay.

    We stayed here from Oct 29-Nov 2. Our stay was too pleasant and I am very satisfied. The location was perfect for tourists as it was very near myeongdong station/shopping center and n seoul tower. place was always very clean. We had new towels everyday! We also have a vault. They allowed us to leave our luggages until night even if we already checked out. Very nice staff! The room was small but just right for the price. Only cons were that the water heater was difficult to control, always too hot or too cold. Bed mattress is a little thin. You cannot cook. We lost key card and was asked to pay 10k Won :’( All in all, very satisfied and plan to return here next year.

    Super kind & helpful staff & GREAT location”

    I cannot even begin to express how much I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Lookhome Guesthouse. The staff are amazing -- genuinely kind, helpful, accommodating & thoughtful! They were super patient with my 101 questions about directions, and even lent me their umbrella when it started pouring out. The room I got is a solo one with no windows, but it was efficient and packed with everything you could ever need. The bed could be thicker (or use some extra layers) so that it's not too hard on the back, but other than that, the room was great! Perhaps the second best thing I like about Lookhome (the staff being the 1st!) would be the LOCATION! :D It's just a cartwheel away from Myeongdong (3-5 mins tops), and there are so many great places to eat in that area, and convenience stores too! Lots of transportation options as well, so getting anywhere is a breeze! I'm staying here again when I come back to Seoul, and I would definitely recommend this to my friends!

    Central location with a 24h convenience stall close by. Myeongdong shopping area is across the main road & the base of Namsan Tower is within 15min walk. Foodies can look out for Isaac Toast & Two Two Chicken en route to the main road. The corner unit twin room is essentially 2 room with 2 separate bathrooms, dressing tables, refrigerators, & TVs. Breakfast is self-service. There were bread, jam, butter, hard boiled egg, juice, & tea.

    I stayed for 5 nights, they provided room keeping everyday so my room can keep clean and tidy. The room has everything basic I need: hair dryer, towels, shower gel, soap, TV etc. It's not spacious but it's enough for one person to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they can speak English so no problem to communicate. It was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend to travelers.

    Budget choice, good location, simple breakfast”

    The service is good - 1. As I lived on the 5/F, where the lift cannot reach, the staff helped me to carry the baggage to the room and introduced me the facilities in the room. She also told me to seek help when I check out. 2. Breakfast is simple, you will get boiled egg and bread with peanut butter; orange juice, tea for drinks. Location is good - Though it is in the alley, it's within 5 minutes walk to the Myeong Dong station, and there was convenient store downstairs and many restaurants including Isaac Toast, Hollys Coffee, etc nearby. You won't need to worry about the breakfast if you have missed the breakfast time (7-9 am) in the hostel. Facilities need to be improved - 1. The water come from the shower is very unstable, one night I waited so long for hot water to come out, but it turned out to be too hot or too cold, which annoyed me much. 2. The mattress cover is not clean enough, which I discovered some stains on it. 3. There was a window in the room but you are not allowed to open it. 4. In the room, there is no hot water boiler but you can get hot water in the breakfast room in the basement. 5. The sound proofing in the room is not good enough, I often heard my neighbors close the door. Overall I am quite satisfied with the hostel in this budget.

    It's located just opposite of Myeongdong. Close to Namsam cable car station. However, it's uphill and not easy to find for the first time. 3mins to Myeongdong subway station and walking distance to Namdaemun too. The room is small but it's clean.
