          Room is quite small, but for those who only use it for sleeping it was very comfortable, good location from exit 1 Heohyeon, just turn right at CU store, flow the road to see Namsan tower, go straight until wider street and the guesthouse located on your right, infront seoul city hotel, you may find the receptionist in this hotel too. 5 minutes walk from Namdaemyun market and 10 walks from Myeongdong street and Kampungku Restaurant. Breakfast provided is cereal and milk, bread and jam. We have very good experience staying in this guest house

          Located at Myeongdong area and is close to Namsan Tower. Plenty of restaurants and convenient stores nearby, 8 minutes walk to Heohyon station. Check in was easy with very helpful staff (thanks for helping me with the padlock!). Room is small but it has shower, heater and other amenities, more than enough for travellers who spend most of the days outside. Pantry can get very busy and crowded, but it has coffee, tea, cup noodles, toasts and cereal. One small issue, we wanted earlier breakfast than 8 AM :) Will definitely go there again when I travel to Seoul.

          Just Right for the Price you pay”

          centrally located in between myeongdong and namdaemun market, location is the hostels best asset. Cheap price so dont expect five star facilities. There is no elevator so you have to carry your luggages upstairs, not recommended if with kids and or senior citizens. I would stay here again if travelling with companions ages between 15-45 years old because i like the location.

          Pros: Very near to subway station (Hoehyeon Station, exit 1). Value for money. Pretty basic breakfast (bread, coffee, tea, egg, instant noodles). Cons: Anotehr staff found out his colleague gave us the wrong room after we have checked in and settled down in the room. Certain staffs are just ignorant. I asked about the nearest post office but just got brushed off with no intention to help at all from the staff.

          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!

          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.

          It was great!”

          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. :)

          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 :)

          fair enough at its price”

          I just find a 1 night stay before meeting with friends and move to other hotel. Be fair, it's a hostel at standard and the condition is ok, with hot water, air-con, tv all work properly. A window with sunlight though you cannot open. Sound isolation is good as I like it is a solid room, not those fake rooms section by a paper-thin wall. However, I need to walk down to G/F for some drinking water, better consider a water station every floor, but this is minor. all in all, fair price to find some place to stay if you do prefer a private room with real door.

          Room is quite small, but for those who only use it for sleeping it was very comfortable, good location from exit 1 Heohyeon, just turn right at CU store, flow the road to see Namsan tower, go straight until wider street and the guesthouse located on your right, infront seoul city hotel, you may find the receptionist in this hotel too. 5 minutes walk from Namdaemyun market and 10 walks from Myeongdong street and Kampungku Restaurant. Breakfast provided is cereal and milk, bread and jam. We have very good experience staying in this guest house

          Located at Myeongdong area and is close to Namsan Tower. Plenty of restaurants and convenient stores nearby, 8 minutes walk to Heohyon station. Check in was easy with very helpful staff (thanks for helping me with the padlock!). Room is small but it has shower, heater and other amenities, more than enough for travellers who spend most of the days outside. Pantry can get very busy and crowded, but it has coffee, tea, cup noodles, toasts and cereal. One small issue, we wanted earlier breakfast than 8 AM :) Will definitely go there again when I travel to Seoul.

          Just Right for the Price you pay”

          centrally located in between myeongdong and namdaemun market, location is the hostels best asset. Cheap price so dont expect five star facilities. There is no elevator so you have to carry your luggages upstairs, not recommended if with kids and or senior citizens. I would stay here again if travelling with companions ages between 15-45 years old because i like the location.

          Pros: Very near to subway station (Hoehyeon Station, exit 1). Value for money. Pretty basic breakfast (bread, coffee, tea, egg, instant noodles). Cons: Anotehr staff found out his colleague gave us the wrong room after we have checked in and settled down in the room. Certain staffs are just ignorant. I asked about the nearest post office but just got brushed off with no intention to help at all from the staff.

          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.

          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. :)
