    Cheap, but don't expect anything more”

    Location is good, very near the metro and in between Myeongdong and Insadong. However the guesthouse is in a dark back alley which made me feel a little unsafe. Main door and room doors also have no lock and there were no staff. Place was a dirty and messy, with no other facilities. Room was cramped and beds had no privacy as well. Basically just a place to sleep and nothing more.

    Great stay. Needed to come here to be closer to the Embassy of Japan located in Jeongno. 20 mins walk/transportation to the Embassy. About 30mins away from Hongdae. Guesthouse is located deep in the city area with various stores and restaurants. The walk to the guesthouse is quite an adventure! Just be sure to look for the sign to enter through the pathway. It was a nice little old guesthouse but don't expect a luxurious one. For the price and location it's good! Room was your typical dorm style beds. Think most plugs had at least one Korean plug adapter. Entrance was equipped with lock for the nights. The showers surprised me because in America and some in Japan the showers were separated from the toilet but in this guesthouse it was combined in one same room. Didn't know about that before but actually most guesthouses in Korea are like that. People coming to this guesthouse will get a good taste of Korea I think! Also Miss Jo is very helpful and responsive! Thank you!

    The best cheap dorm if u just need a place to put your stuff and sleep”

    I stayed here many times because I love the location. Its near to jongno3ga station which makes u easier to move around Seoul because theres 3 different lines of subway operating there. The room for 6 bed mix bedroom is quite spacious for its price. I always only need place to put my stuff and sleep so this place is perfect for me. I would absolutely come here again if I come to Korea again next time.

    Truly the best hostel location of ALL TIME!!!”

    You are a 30-60 seconds walk (depending on the traffic light) into the digital beating heart of Seoul. An endless feast for your eyes is literally right around the corner. But it’s not SO close that the noise from the massive crowds of people make its way to the hostel. I originally planned to stay here one night because I didn’t have a fixed itinerary and wanted to explore the rest of South Korea. But then I kept extending my stay again and again and again because of the awesome entertainment and shopping within arm’s... no, elbow’s reach. Plus the owner is very nice and the place is clean and comfortable. What more could you possibly ask for? I would give this 10 stars out of 5 if I could. Highly highly HIGHLY recommended!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Take note that you have to check-in yourself, when you enter the place, just look for the room with your name on paper pasted on the door, I didn't know it at the time so I waited for quite a while sitting at the counter lmao. The location was great, it was in the middle of everything so I just walked most of the time. Good place for you if you're fine with walking 20-40 minutes to the happenings. Has plenty of subway options as well.

    Excellent location, close to subway, cheap!”

    Seoul Guesthouse is tucked in a small alley just a few minutes from the subway station. Sorry, I can't remember the name of the station, but I know it's mentioned in another review. I walked right in; Miss Joe has your name on a piece of paper taped to the door of your room that says "Welcome new guest!" My original room was kind of hot and stuffy, so Miss Joe kindly moved me to another room which was colder. You take your shoes off and place on the rack and wear flip flops, which are provided, but you don't wear anything in the rooms. The rugs weren't vacuumed so it was kind of nasty to walk barefooted on them. There are no sheets; there's a thin mattress-protector that serves as your sheets. The only blanket is a comforter, which is fine, but idk if it gets washed after each guest! You can come and go freely. There are 2 full baths inside and one half bath outside. There is a small kitchen with fridge and filtered water. For $9USD per night in Seoul, you can't beat it!

    Thank you for your detailed description. Your comment suggest what I need to improve to serve guests better. "Taking off shoes" tradition in Korea may be somewhat new and weird thing to western travellers, but it's very common thing in this country. I regret that I can't meet all the requirements of guests, but I do my best to keep my guesthouse clean and comfortable. You are such a nice and thoughtful guest. Hope to see you someday. Thanks.

    Great place for a budget traveler not looking for frills. The accommodation was clean and peaceful, owner was kind and helpful if needed. Seems most other travelers who frequent the hostel were Chinese or Japanese. Wouldn't recommend this to inexperienced travelers who are looking to meet others or require a lot of help as it's quite small and not very social-able.

    Average stay ”

    Pros: Location wise was really not bad as it is pretty close to subway and has alot of food stores around. Cons: The 4 bedded room was smaller than expected. And the lady boss was so fierce. Most of the time no staff at the receiption area. And at night, you cannot on any of the lights in living room. Felt it was a little ridiculous as I see people chilling on the sofa or using comp without any lights.

    Reviewed October 17, 2018

    Sorry for your unpleasant stay here. Yes, the place is a little bit small, but there is personal lockers in the room, though it's for your valuables not for the baggage. Some guests say it's the perfect place for a solo-traveler, but I feel sorry my place is too beyond your expectation. Hope you can find a better place in Seoul so that you have a great memory in Seoul. Thanks
