    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.

    Staff, location, 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.

    Great Place!”

    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

    Location HONGDAE”

    It is in the middle of hongdae and even though you can hear a lot of people and transit in front of the hostel, the rooms are very quiet and no noise at all, we were 4 people so we had a big bed and a bunk bed so it was perfect. There is a common area with kitchen so it is nice if you need to cook and also laundry.

    I absolutely loved it. It was my first time staying in a single bedroom at any guesthouse. I was pleasantly surprised with it and was glad I chose it. The room is perfect for one person and you can fit your bags under the bed. There was a mini fridge and a mirror in the room. The bathroom are a good size and the water was always nice and warm-hot.
