                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!

                We stayed here in Seoul 2 nights then we travel to Busan for another 2 nights after that we came back here again for 2 more nights. The guesthouse allowed us to leave our 2 big backpacks while we away for 2 days. We really appreciated it. We also asked the receptionist to call and make a reservation to the local restaurant for us. Very impress for all the help form the guest house. Strongly recommended.

                Despite the title Guesthouse, this is definitely hostel like accommodation. Small rooms and common breakfast area with continental serve yourself. If you are an independent traveler who likes to walk, its a very good location for beginning your tour of Seoul.

                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. :)

                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!

                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.

                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 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.

                Stayed 4 nights in February 2017
                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. :)

                Happy Family backpackers”
                Family room was great, staff and owner were nice and spoke english well, location was near the subway and city bus
                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 :)
