good location, noisy”
location is great, on a very lively street. check in process was good, nice staff. wifi works on and off. breakfast was extremely poor even for a hostel, only bread then juice/tea/coffee. Have to take issue with the noise. Other guests were generally rude, frequently slamming doors and not respecting supposed quiet times at night. While this isnt necessarily the hostels fault, having loud doors and a really annoying beeping noise every time the main door opens and closes is pretty stupid. Dont stay here if you like quiet/sleep
nice location, rooms were ok. other guests were very rude. while this isnt the hostels fault, designing the area to be as noisy as possible isnt acceptable. Wifi was on and off, breakfast was very poor (bread or bread today?)
Nice stuff! Great location because you can walk from Hongdae easily. Near subway Sangsu station exit 1 more than Hongik station. Some night are lounder because of celebrate night like before christmas (24 Dec) but another night are fine. Someday we have to wake up early or lately because 8:00a.m-11:00a.m have mavy people use toilet. Anyway generally are great :) Thank you for warm welcome Mamas & Papas!
An amazing place ”
Since I travelled a little bit around asia, I've been in good and bad places.. but mamas&papas is my fav with no doubt and no sugar coating! From the owner to the guests everyone was kind and friendly, thank you all for the delightful times
A jewel in the heart of a Hongdae”
This is such amazing, clean and cozy place I've ever been in Seoul! The staff is just amazing, specially Oscar! Oscar is a guy from the reception who speak good English and able to help you for everything! He is just 10 out of 10!!!! The female bed dorm is a bit small but really comfortable and there is kitchen window th breakfast! Not to mention the location is close to everything! I would stay here again! Thanks for everything!!!!
location, service, price”
good location, easy to find, near the sangsu station, there are a lot of restaurants around, very convenient also, the staff there are very helpful, especially the one who talks in english, he is very nice and helpul, have good greetings the price is very nice to stay a night which included breakfast
Friendly staff, good location, comfortable,”
I will certainly stay again at mamas and papas.
Very Hospitable Staff, Value for the money, nice location”
The guesthouse is in a very nice location near shopping district and train satiation. cleanliness of the place is well maintained by the staff/management. I really feel at home while staying there, rhey even suggest on what places we need to visit and how to get there. making our stay in korea a very memorable.😊
The host is nice but the wi-go is sucked.
Cheap clean and comfy right in the area to be!
The place is completly clean. There're plenty of restaurantes, bars and markets around. 10 min by walking to train staion and 05 minutos to the Bus station. You can get easy many tourist places in Seoul. The kitchen is good! Only one point.. there is comon area.
Before I arrived I told them that I will come in very late at night, I wanted to send that notification because it said the reception is only open till 10PM - to my surprise the staff waited for our arrival till late at night and assisted us with check in and some stuff we need to know. The staff are all accommodating, the place has a very homey feel. It's located near the subway station and there are a lot of food choices to eat since it's like a university area that are open till late night. I am definitely booking this place again. It's a plus that the receptionist are both Filipino. Thanks for a wonderful stay! :)
I had an amazing experience here. Got a great deal to start out with and I had nothing to complain about about the whole experience. Oscar is an awesome dude and will help you out with anything you need. Bedroom, sheets, bathroom, and kitchen were all clean. They have free bread and coffee, so not too much of a breakfast, but better than nothing. You can buy your own food and cook it there if you want though. If you're in Hongdae to party, this is your place to go. It's surrounded by bars and clubs so it can get a little loud outside but not too bad. If you aren't too picky it won't be a problem
Great Location ”
It was clean and in an great location. We had some trouble finding it at first but figured it out eventually. The only downside of the stay was the thin walls and shared bathroom, but I will definitely book again.
Stayed for a night at the 6-female dorm. Clean room. The staffs was alright. Near restaurants, bars, arcade and clubs. Great location. Quite a distance to Hongik station and probably 6-10min to nearest station Sangsu.
Great location but average facility ”
The location is convenient and near to Hongdae. Staff was helpful. However, they can't provide me a room key during my stay which mean I can't lock my door when I go out. Toilet cleanliness was lacking. Hope they can improve on it.
Centrally located backpack house but cramped and noisy”
Hosts are nice and do their best to please you But... rooms are small, house is cramped Bathrooms are challenging if you're taller than 5 ft. And you can basically hear whispers from the adjacent room Not cool for couple and privacy But cool if you backpack and just need a crash place for a night
Very good experience ”
I stayed at Mamas & Papas Guesthouse for one month straight and it was a very good experience. The location is perfect (a lot of restaurant, shop, subway stations very near...), the guesthouse is really good, it's very clean. And the most important thing, the staff is extraordinary. Really!!! The staff is really nice, you can feel like home. I'll for sure come back to this guesthouse if I return to Seoul one day.
Great value for money”
I almost did not stay here because the price was so low I thought that it may be too basic. It is located close to the subway in a lively area. Good breakfast with eggs, toast, juice, and coffee. Free laundry. Water dispenser. Free towels. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great experience.
Great stay, homey and hospitable”
It was great. We had a mishap with the reservation since they had no rooms available for some of the days we booked (site mishap) but mamas and papas staff did their best to accommodate us and make us comfortable. They made the trip a success and I don't regret booking and staying with them at all. They showed us some great places to eat like base camp and they took us out to dinner. Being able to make breakfast in the morning was great. It had a great home vibe. My friend that accompanied me for her first time in Korea felt she got the real experience and felt we stayed at the perfect place to get to know the local point of view, night life and a good hospitable experience. I'd definitely come back again. Thank you for everything, l loved my stay. It's not the best but I feel it was kinda perfect.
