    Location was perfect!Stayed 2 rooms. Our room has a fridge,sink,plates,cutleries. Power points are not enough to charge our gadgets tho. Bathroom small but good enough. However, one of our room's bathroom towel rod came off from the wall and we were not able to hang our towels and clothes while taking a shower. quite inconvenient to us. Basic breakfast food provided. Rooftop excellent. No lifts - a few flight of stairs up to rooms - have to manage slowly with heavy luggages as quite narrow. Location perfect - super near to subway - reason why we booked this room. Hongdae - interesting place and able to get anything nearby.

    This is my second time staying at this hostel, and the hostel retains its good standard as usual. The location is 2-3 mins walk from Hong Ig Uni Station exit 3, which is a good location. Staff was friendly and supported us all information we needed. She supported us in keeping our luggage before we went to the Airport at night flight. Overall, the hostel is impressive and i will definitely comeback next time.

    We had the family room n triple room for 2 stays across a week. Very thankful that they allowed us to deposit portion of our bags as we hop by jeju for 3 days before coming back. Rooms are really comfortable n family room has a washing machine in room. Triple room doesnt have one but can use the common machine in the main building 1min walk away. Breakfast runs out of supplies (bread) early with no recep to go to. Got to bring own cups n bowls from room to collect breakfast. Reception is always not open and have to rely on kakaotalk messenger to reach staff. Other than that comfy spacious room, equipped bathroom with heater. Good location. Triple n family room has a small kitchen space. Best part is room service (trash clearing n towels changing) which is not the norm for guesthouse :)

    Best stay in Seoul”

    People, clean room, location

    Seoul Mansion has whatever it takes for a good guesthouse. in terms of location, it is just right opposite Exit 3 of Hongdae subway station. Plus point will be that is one of the subway exit WITH escalator. I'm feel blessed for this after the horrible experience with Anguk subway station with my luggage. hahaha Thus it is only few minutes walk and u can reach the center of HongDae with lots of shoppings and good food!! The room is clean and well equipped with whichever daily basic needed. there is up to 5 power plugs (i m so happy with this as the guesthouse we previously stayed in before seoul mansion only have 2 and i have lots of gadgets to charge). The toiletries supplied are good. me and my friend even asked which brands are they supplying as it makes our hair so smooth. Seoul mansion serves simply breakfast (toasts, muffins, fruits, juice, cereals, milk) but its really sufficient for a kick start in the morning. i personally love the muffins and fresh fruits. the staffs are very helpful. i will definitely come back for another stay with Seoul Mansion.

    Location, value for money, coziness

    It was awesome. The front desk staff and boss were really helpful. Even before I reached, I had received two emailed from them confirmationing my stay and detailed directions to get their by bus/train/taxi and by walking, that's how detailed it was! I wanted to go to a salon and the boss brought me to a salon nearby and help me to translate. This place really feels like a home! When I step into my room I immediately love it! Sofa by the side, comfy bed and there's a small area with basin, plates etc where u can order food to your room ( front desk can help you) or you bring back take away and will need the plates and bowls. Some of the best food are from deliveries like zha jiang mien. Internet is exceptionally fast and there's a working desk with TV on it. No keys needed , you will need to have two sets of code to enter the mansion and your room. What I like is that is is not expensive, yet it is not a hostel style, it feels more like an apt. There's a great rooftop terrace where u can chill with your friends. There are 3 floors with no lift, so if you have heavy luggage you will need to endure that few steps. Toilet is extremely small which is the biggest downside of the place. But you will probably have no time to stay long in there cos you will be out shopping all the time. Near the hotel are loads of coffee places and across the road is the Hondae area which have loads of food and streetwise performance and shops to shop. 3mins walk to hit the subway/railway (to airport). Will definitely choose this place again!

    Seoul Mansion Guesthouse”

    I think overall the reviews are quite good because this place is dirt cheap and it is literally across the street from hongdae shopping street. But unfortunately I was assigned the third floor with a miniscule toilet which made it very uncomfortable to shower. You can't change in the shower and have to change in the room due to the size of the toilet. There was also no lift or escalator so carrying up the luggage was hard as the staircases were narrow. Overall, I'd come back here if I had no money, but I'd definitely save up more to stay in a hotel next time.

    Pros: *3 mins walking distance from Hongik University station from exit 3. So, easy to access everywhere. *Easy to check in/Check out Cons: * No housekeeping service. Notice board in the room indicates there is light sweeping and clearing trash bin within sudden time slot of the days and towels will be changed if we put on the floor. It never happened within 3 days that we stayed. We threw trash by ourselves. And it never happened to change the towels from our room too. * The room is cold .You cannot come back to the room for the nap or rest in the day time in the room as staff claimed heater only turn on at night. I only feels warm and comfortable on the first night only. The other 2 days & nights, the room temp is low and I put 2 heat pads in the blanket to keep warm myself.

I will try to be more best for my guest. Actually we change the towels and throw the garbage in the bin if guest put the cleaning card on the outside of the room door. Maybe you was forget to put on the door. If you come back agian, we will do best for you.
