              This very homey guesthouse gave us a hassle-free stay. Everything is accessible, from main road to train station as well as tourist spots were made possible as planned. Easy fix breakfast made us feel at home, friendly and very accommodating staff and room cleanliness is at its finest each time we returned from a tiring yet happy tour. We will definitely book this great place again, if given another chance to visit Korea. Hopefully soon!

              Everything you need is here!”
              Pros: Easy to locate, just walk about 5mins from Heohyeon Station. It is surrounded by convinience store and restaurants. The staff was really helpful. I requested for a room on 1st floor and they granted my request. They have express check in and check out. And as I said, everything you will need is there. Cons: The rooms are kinda old BUT IN GOOD CONDITION. Same breakfast everyday BUT ITS FREE AND DELICIOUS. These cons doesn't matter to me. Really a value for money. I will definitely recommend. And I will absolutely book it again when I go back to South Korea next year. :)

              Great location, 3 mins walk from exit of metro station, with small & simple room. ”
              The hostel was walking distance (3 mins walk) from exit 1 of Hoehyeon station which is only a station away from Seoul station & Myeongdong station. 10 mins walk to Myeongdong shopping area. Lots of food choices around the hotel as well. The owner allowed us to leave our luggage at the reception area as we arrive before check in time. However the room was small & a little old (as expected from this price & good location). Overall satisfied with our stay there. Would recommend this place if you want to stay in city center but are on a tighter budget.

              Location wise. There are many convenience stores and restaurants around the area, myeongdong shopping street, namsan cable car and namdaemun market are just walking distance. Just one stop from Seoul station if you are taking the express train from Incheon airport. Rooms are clean, the toilet is big. But I hope they can serve breakfast earlier than 8AM. Overall, we had a great time!

              Stayed in New Sun with my Mom and 2 siblings! We loved the location because it is walking distance to Myeongdong and Namsan Tower. I love that it's also near Pomato, a resto serving cheap Korean dishes. There are convenience stores just across the street and samyupsal restos just a few steps away. Their staff are super helpful and helped us carry our bags to our room. They alos helped us book an airport service. The rooms are not that big but just enough for 4 people. It might get too cramped if you all have huge luggage bags. They have a ref, hairdryer and water heater inside. The door to the bathroom is a bit heavy though and it's a glass door with no lock. But overall, we had an amazing stay!

The rooms are small but clean with basic amenities. If u just need a place to sleep and shower then it's ok as the location is strategic with access to the metro and Myeongdong area.

              The place is in an ideal location between 2 market that any tourist would want to visit. It's a 5-10min walk to Myeongdong and 5min walk to Namdaemun. Neighborhood is full of local shops, there's a samgyeopsal place, an Izakaya, a convenient store, Subway store and the subway is a stone throw away. At night, the neighborhood is quiet and safe in all. The cleanliness of the place is spot on although you'll notice the wear and tear of the place. Regardless, the bathroom is complete with all the amenities needed and ample space to move around. The bed provided was a queen size with 2 pillows and a comforter. There's an aircon (but probably won't need to use it), hair dyrer, tv, extension (do bring your own as the plug is still rounded), dresser with mirror, mini refrigerator with 2 bottles of water. There's ample space to move around your luggage in the room. Owner / front desk is helpful in all my needs. Breakfast is provided, as well as water dispenser. Use of kitchen utensils is available to guests.

              The place is very accessible to almost all tourist spots in Myeongdong. The room is quite well and comfortable despite the limited space. Kibum and his father, Mr. Sung were very accommodating and they ensured that we get what we pay. Mr Sung also has provided us adaptor since the socket are not the usual flat plugs. You should bring extensions coz only one adaptor can be lent and additional of it has payment. But due to kindness of Mr. Sung, he lend us 2 instead. They do have free breakfast and it self service. Furthermore, the location is near to any convenience store and restaurant. People around the area especially in the stores are approachable and kind especially the one from GS25. Will surely recommend this place and book here again. Had a great vacation in this place! Keep it up! More success. :)

              The location is perfect. Very near to food establishments, quick marts like 711, mrt station and other neighboring areas like myeongdong. The amenities are good for backpackers and budget travellers because they provide water, coffee and some basic food for breakfast and the kitchen can also be used by the guests to cook or prepare their own food. The staff were very accomodating and approachable whenever you see them. New Sun Guesthouse is highly recommended and will definitely stay with them again when we travel back in Seoul. Cheers!

              We are a family of four backpackers. Our youngest member aged 10, is always a challenging to please. But enjoyed the new sun guesthouse. The location was near the heohyun station and was in the dead center of the city. Walking distance to namsan tower, city hall, myeonggyecheong stream, buk-something palace. Like i said it was dead center. I would def recommend this guesthouse to other family backpackers, esp foreigners cuz staff and owner were nice and spoke english well. Thanks :)

              Great New and Modern Guesthouse”
              Location, Large Room with Fast Internet
              At first, it was quite hard to find. I was looking for their email in google to ask for a map but I couldn't find any. Maybe they can shoot an email after receiving Agoda booking notification like other hostels would do. Anyway, it wouldn't be an issue once you find your way. LOCATION + 1.5mins. walk Hoehyeon Train Station (station next to Myeongdong) + 5-7mins. walk to Namdaemun Market + 20mins. walk going up N Seoul Tower cable car + 8mins. walk to Airport Bus stop + There are 2-3 money changers between the station and the guesthouse. (Rates are better as compared to others) + Convenience store across. - Leading to the guesthouse there are I think Love hotels. You may pass by group of guys or (maybe) pimps inviting you. Not much of a problem anyway. BEDROOM+BATHROOM + Very spacious at 3rd floor (at least this was the room given to us, Thank you!) + Toiletries, Slippers, Towels are given (towels changed everyday) + Rooms cleaned everyday. + Fast Internet - There was a stench coming from the drain in the bathroom - The lowered step by the door may cause accident. Many times I tripped on it. FOOD + Free Breakfast: Strawberry jam/butter with bread and Instant Korean Noodle soup - Not much restaurants around the hostel, you need to walk near the station. STAFF +Staff is very fluent in english! He traced directions in the map, free and displayed in the stairway. Sunday is our check out until we realized we ran out of won! Apparently, money changers are not open that day and made us worried we won't have money for the bus to the Airport. He freely asked how much we needed and exchanged his won for our dollars instead. Thanks.. We will surely be back!

              Cheap but Not Comfortable”
              Stayed at this guest house for a week and have to say that location is not bad, as it is near to Hoehyeon station which is 1 stop away from Seoul Station, and around 3 mins walk. but the bunk bed is uncomfortable to sleep as the mattress is only around 10 cm thick. the double bed room will be a better option I think. from the pictures, the rooms look clean n spacious but in reality, the room quite old n quite small (maybe ours was a middle room). It is self service guesthouse, I don't even have to check in and check out. arrived late and the key was left at the counter with a piece of note with my name and breakfast and check out timings. To check out simply need to drop the key into a big bowl. no deposit required. as for breakfast, only have white bread (with butter and jam), cereals, milk and cup noodles, sachets of coffee and green tea. will be good if there are some hard boiled eggs though. but the cup noodles don't seem to cook properly if use the hot water from the filtered tap. when we first stepped into the room, there were strands of hair on the floor. have the basic things like sachets of shampoo, conditioner, shower cream, a mini bar of soap, hand and bath towels, and a hair dryer. also have a mini fridge and a kettle which we did not use. so will need to bring your own toothpaste and toothbrush if you intending to stay here. it's just opposite Namdaemun market and Shinsegae Department Store and 5mins walk to Myeongdong area. If I were to book my accommodation again, I will most likely book for 2 days and stay at another area for the remaining days of my holiday.
