        Location, Staff, Amenities

        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!

        Value for money”

        I booked last minute on this property. The location is good very near to Hoehyeon Station and in Myeondong. This is very advantageous to us because we did several visits to Namdaemun Market and to Myeongdong to shop as well as to Seoul Station for Lotte Mart. The place is clean and smells really good. Bathroom is huge but it's kinda challenging to control the temp of the water. Breakfast only has coffee bread cereal and noodles everyday. I will not complain because I am expecting more because this is just a guesthouse and not really a hotel. What they offered was enough for us to start the day since food is really expensive in Seoul, it helps that your stomach is already full. I would like to mention the Weighing Scale. It was really helpful because we just purchased baggage few hours before the flight. Also, they allowed us to leave our things after check out since our flight is late at night. Overall, I think I might consider this again if ever I will be going back to Seoul.

        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!

        Location, English speaking check-in, in-room facilities

        I was very happy with my stay at New Sun. Kibum, the friendly check-in guy, had studied in NZ so had a great level of English; having only been in Korea a week, this was very useful. The room had a desk, wifi, tv, tissues, cotton buds and heater. Towels and breakfast were included. The make-your-own breakfast wasn't flash - white bread, noodles, eggs, milk, tea, coffee - but it was enough to start the day. The location was brilliant - walking distance to Namsan Park and the N Seoul Tower, as well as to Shinsegae and Lotte department stores. There were markets close by, as well as cafes and local eateries. I stayed in a twin room on my own. If I had stayed with someone else, space may have been tight, but I've experienced that in hotels in Korea for a lot more money than New Sun. For the $60AUS I paid per night, it was good value.

        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 :)

        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!

        Already check in at new sun guesthouse 3 times. 1st time check in on november 2014. On 2014, front desk staff very helpfull n friendly. Then 2016 im check in again for 2nd time, new front desk staff. Staff not friendly and always making an unpleasant face. I'm a guest, but he don't respect me as a guest. no manner! Ohh yeah, front desk staff on 2016 and 2017 is a same guy staff. For 2016 i still patient because only me and my friend check in. But for 2017, 3rd time check in i took my family. This time he forbade us to cook, he said disturbing other guest. What function kitchen if we can't cook, even we just cook instant noodles. Bad experience stay at new sun guesthouse and never come check in again. Really don't like that guy because the attitude. Always making an unpleasant face to the guest. Maybe will check in again at new sun guesthouse if that guy already resign.

        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.

        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.

        Nice place, nice price”

        New Sun is a steal. This place is very close with Myeondong and Namdaemun, the facilities are sufficient, the room is clean, and the staffs are nice. Definitely will stay here again if I come to Seoul.

        Excellent choice for USD50++”

        Look new with huge TV,more toiletries provided and great service from Korean staff.

        Spacious by korean standard,bed and toilet.Free simple breakfast available in korean to western type.Many chinese and korean restaurants on lines to Namdaemun and Myeongdong but for muslims no halal restaurants nearby but lots is seen in Itaewon cz I have been there before.Short walks to attractive spots culturally and commercially.From here can see up straight to Seoul Tower.

        GREAT LOCATION ; VALUE FOR MONEY!”

        This guesthouse took us some time to locate it at first but later then we realized it is only less than 5mins walk from Hoe-Hyeon subway station. Room is pretty small tbh but it was enough for us just to get good rest. Cereal, white bread and instant noodles are prepared for breakfast every morning so thats one of the Pros. It is just one station away to myeongdong if you are ready for some shopping spree or if you want to walk to explore the city street, it will only take you about 8 - 10mins (took us a little longer in the freezing weather) Namdemun night market is also just 5-8mins away by walking if you intend to buy some fruits and local products and of course clothes. N seoul tower is another spot which you can easily reach to from this guesthouse. Only one con I would like to mention is the bathroom door in our room. It cannot be shut firm and tight. I sincerely hope the management can fix this for the convenience of the guest because other than this I can't find a thing to complain.

        For a first timer in Korea, the guesthouse is accessible to all..... subway stations, ATM, underground shopping centers, convenience stores, food establishments, 10-15 mins walk to Namsan Cable Car and Myeongdong Shopping Street 👍🏻❤ Even the host and his staff are approachable 😊
