      Comfortable and affordable ”
      very good location, fast wifi, very affordable
      At first, the guesthouse was a bit difficult to look for because it is located in one of the alleys but after finding it, location was very good. It's very near the subway station and a lot of good restaurants across the main street and also inside the alleys. Service was DIY, take out your trash and they will collect it and replace your trash can with a new one. You can make your own breakfast consisting of cup noodles, bread, spreads, coffee, or tea. They have a toaster oven, microwave oven, coffee maker and water dispenser.

      It was okay.”
      The lounge, free breakfast/ food
      We checked-in in at around late evening and there was only one staff there. The check-in was quite fast but he didn't really orientate us about the guesthouse so we explored ourselves. He helped us carry our luggage up to our rooms which was very nice because both of us were girls. When we reach our room we were a little shocked at the small space we had for our luggage. We couldn't even put the luggage flat down without the wheels touching onto our mattresses. There was TV available but we didn't use it at all. We didn't know how to use the heater so we went down to ask the staff and there were 2 of them. The other one was very patient and went up to our room to show us. All 3 staff that we met were friendly, always greeting us whenever we went in or out. The lounge was very nice, there was free breakfast but they didn't really clear it away so we can eat whenever we want. We could also cook our stuff, but sometimes the other people in the guesthouse didn't wash the dishes. The guesthouse is very near to Jonggak station, so it was very convenient for us to travel around. Overall, it was a nice place to stay despite the small space!

      Great Value”
      English speaking and friendly staff, very clean, great value
      Thia place is a great value. The staff speaks good English and are very friendly which made our stay very pleasant. The breakfast is a cup of noodles, bread, and hot beverages. The location is great and walking distance to many tourist attractions. The rooms and building are very clean and cozy. FYI,the rooms are very small and will not have much space for many big bags.

      Great location”
      Centrally located, easy to the budget, easy access to transportation
      I love it that the location was right in the middle of Insadong, very near to the subway station. It was very near to the shopping areas within and around Insadong. It is also very near to restaurants, as well as to historical spots like the various palaces found in Seoul. There was a confusion regarding our check in. It seemed that we were given a room which should not have been given to us. It seemed that the night receptionist did not endorse our arrival to the morning staff too. I was expecting two beds elevated from the floor since it was the picture posted for twin beds but we were given Korean style beds, like mattresses on the floor. That was okay though. As they say, when in Rome, be a Roman. There was also a confusion on the rental for adaptors. The sockets were rounded but our chargers were the square style. We were told by the receptionist that adaptors were free, but another receptionist told us that we had to pay 10000 won for rental. I just wished that their policies are consistent. But the receptionist helped us with our taxi to the airport so it kind of redeemed the initial negative impression. All in all, this hotel provides the basic things I need: clean room, aircon/warmer, hot and cold shower. So, for me it's okay.

      Location, budget, staff
      The location was perfect. It was close to the subway (less than one minute by walking) and it is close to major attractions. Insadong was just a few minutes away. It was easy to get to other areas of Seoul. The room was clean and the staff we're friendly.
