But the location is so nice, near ehwa university (you can take pictures there), cosmetics shop also clothes and shoes shop. Staff is friendly, can english and standby until 11 pm. They also write maps if you need airport bus and there is a scale if you want to weigh your luggage.

There you go. Room is considered bigger compare to other guesthouse I have stayed. It's a very comfortable room, breakfast of toast bread, peanut butter, jam and coffee(love their coffee!) is provided (self-service). Staffs are well versed in English, Chinese and Cantonese. No langugage barrier staying there. Will definitely return to stay there as the room is good and location is execellent.

          Good location, staff who can speak english and mandarin, clean

          First off, it is a budget place to stay, so I wasn't expecting much. I arrived near midnight and though I did let the staff know that I will be arriving late(there won't be people there 24/7), it took me 10 minutes of running up and down to locate someone to let me in. The person was friendly and check in was fuss free which was good. Bring your own towel as though they do provide clean towels, it is more like a face towel. The room was clean but the toilet has a musty smell to it(windowless and ventilation was bad). Thank goodness the toilet was not in the room, though we do have our own toilet. Room was small but clean. Breakfast was just bread and jam. Staff will be there in the day till around 11pm at night. Friendly when you need them but basically mind their own business. Location was good though, near to the station and bus stop that leads to the airport. Near the woman university so shopping was good too.

          i chose shnichon guesthouse is because of the ideal location of the hotel. it was only less than 15 minutes driving distance from the train station. i saved a lot from the cad fees. i am so glad and happy when the staff there speaks very fluent english to me and make me felt welcomed. basically, the room was big, clean and i loved the white color theme of the room. there was no worries to find foods as there is a small but complete kitchen at the ground floor. it is convenient to get groceries from the shops nearby. definitely i would like to pay a visit to shinchon guestroom for my next trip to seoul!

          The room was a little small for 3 person but my sisters and i enjoyed the stay. The room is nice and clean. The staff speaks English and Chinese so we have no problem communicating. They did not explain how to use certain facilities or provide us with useful information as compared to other hostel staff but they are very helpful when you request for help. A value for money choice.

          the frontdesk of the hotel really helped me a lot on places what to see. she even knows what time the sightseeing places opens and closes. frontdesk is non korean thus her english is quite well so there will be no trouble with conversation. I really like the place since i was able to meet new friends also guests staying at the same hotel. people staying here are normally students to young professionals.

          The place is very comfortable, especially during winter. During our 5 day stay in Seoul, we looked forward to going home to this guesthouse knowing that a warm and cozy room awaits us. The floor of the room is very warm, i guess that's the ondol type. The staff speak good english and are very friendly. The location is perfect, very near the subway and to almost everything! If we have the chance to go back to Seoul, we'll definitely stay in this place again! Thanks Shinchon Guesthouse!

          Very good”

          Guesthouse location is really good. Room is big and staff is really friendly. Cleaning was done once even though we stayed 2 weeks. Breakfast was ok but poor sometimes no coffee after 8h30.... Except that it was a nice stay.

          Best location and guesthouse!”

          Pros- good AC, free laundry service, good wifi, good services (throwing away your garbage), and overall my friends and I were able to enjoy our stay. Cons- just some outside noise here and there, the sink water came out really lightly

          the location is accessible to people who would likely take the subway touring the city. Nice walking around the neighborhood, the shops are affordable, restaurants are decent and offers a wide variety to choose from. Staff are also very helpful.

          Overall good stay”

          The single bed in the Triple Room was too hard, and made noises whenever the person on top moved. Other than that, the room was clean with no bugs, the facilities were okay, the staff could communicate with the residents through English or Chinese, and it was near the metro station.

          As good as always ”

          Always my top choice when Im travelling to Korea. Cheap and affordable, the room is very simple yet very clean and the staffs are very very helpful. Close to Ewha Women Uni shopping streets, plenty of cafe and eatery. Will always be my top choice when travelling to Korea.
