Quiet to rest, cozy surroundings, convenient with public transport, clean, friendly staff”
It's near Hongik Station so it's convenient with public transport. It is at a more quiet area to rest, in which I like. It has many cozy cafes, restaurants and shops around. The room is small but clean, the facilities are fine. The owner/manager Mr Kim is especially very friendly and helpful, and with a big smile! They also prepare simple breakfast for the guests. For the kind of price it charges in Seoul, I think it's pretty value for money. This is one of the nicest guesthouse that I've stayed in Asia as solo traveler.
Owner is super helpful and friendly. Clean Room. Nice Environment. Breakfast is included but no luck to try:( Seeing other comments mentioning the breakfast is great. Good price. Good community around.
Pros - Good price and owner is super helpful and friendly. Cons - Just no lift, only staircase, although owner help carry luggage up to room when the day arrived. But a bit painful when carry big luggage leaving. The staircase is narrow and no handler, so a bit dangerous to move with big luggage.
Nice trip started with Haemil in South Korea”
Location a little bit far from metro station, around 7-10 minutes. Nice guesthouse owner, he was very nice to offer help to visitors. Free breakfast and clean room. Reasonable price in South Korea! Recommended!
Rooftop room with low ceiling”
Facilities are fair enough, the owner was nice enough to help us girls carry our luggage to the rooftop room. However, the ceiling is so low that if you are taller than 165cm you will need to bow your head in your room all the time. Not sure about other rooms, maybe because we took the rooftop room.
Great little room near Hongdae. Lots of little shops and eateries to explore around this place. Small room, but it's clean and has a comfy bed. I will say my room had the floor/hot water gas heater in a closet that provided heat to the whole floor. I'm sensitive to noise when I'm trying to sleep and when it started up it had a bit of a rattle that was kinda annoying. But most people probably wouldn't be bothered by it. And not every room has the heater closet.
Rooftop room vibes”
The room is perfect for me. Everything is fine. Water heater, heater, all good. Wifi strong. Room is quiet as it was the only room on the rooftop. Peacefully sleep. Location is good. Surround by all those pretty cafes. CU (groceries stores something like 7/11) just around the corner. Walking distance to train station. Walking distance to shopping district 👍🏻
A place you can treat it as you 2nd home”
Everything has its pros and cons, this one definitely pros more than cons. Let's start with cons, as all guest houses will have similar feature, the facilities aren't as secured as Hotels. Second, the locations were close to the metro but It's not an obvious place you can find easily. Then here comes the pros, the owner is very nice, he helped us in ordering takeaway and everything, as you know it's really hard to do something if you don't speak Korean. Let's talk about the room, the room wasn't designed for luxury but it's abosolutely designed for people who would like to experience Morden Korean culture. The heater is very power that even under 0 degree the floor and the room is kept warm, but I suggest you should bring moisturiser as the room would be a bit try. No bathtub that doesnt bother me at all. And choosing guesthouse or hotel in Hongdae is really a wise decision as the location is very convenient to most tourist spots and local always pick-up at Hongdae.
Helpful and friendly owner”
Pros: 1.)Helpful owner that help us arranged the riding service from guesthouse to hongik station without any service charge and provide information needed. 2.)comfortable and clean room. 3.)simple breakfast and fruits prepared by owner mother
Comfortable accommodation, good value for money , friendly and helpful staff.”
1. Best service offered from Mr.Lee, he found me a box to pack my stuff despite he is not responsible for that, this is delightful! He also help me to carry my 20kg baguage to my room without tips! this is the excellent services. 2. Location not bad! bed is clean, tv alot channels, all ok! will certainly stay at this place again when i revisit Korea.
Nice Accommodation Highly Recommended ”
This is my second time to stay in Haemil Gueshouse and the guesthouse owner could recall me, LOL ~~~ Still, this time we had very pleasant stay. The guesthouse is clean and comfortable. Price for accommodation per night is very good and I bet you would agree this ! Breakfast is included yet simple, it is pretty much like something you usually have for breakfast at home. The guesthouse owner is a very friendly and helpful gentleman. He helped us to order food delivery, offered us to extend the check out time, etc. we very much appreciated his kindness and would like to come back again in our future visits to Seoul !
Best Guesthouse in Seoul!”
The location is very good, very close to Hongik University Station Exit 3. The owner is very nice and helpful. The room is big, tidy and very very clean, we feel very comfortable, really worth for it. We must back when we come to Seoul again!
A very comfort stay”
We had stayed there for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay there very much. Though it is a bit far from MTR which takes around 15 mins walk, the guesthouse environment is quiet with some nice shops around. We booked a family suite which is clean and tidy. We have different kinds of breakfast each day and all are delicious. The host is nice and helpful as well. We surely will stay there when visit Seoul next time
Feel like home”
Clean and comfy room. Friendly and nice people - Mr Lee. Few days before our arrival, the owner, Mr Lee has sent us a clear step-to-step(with photo) guide on how to get to the guesthouse. And it's really useful! The guesthouse will prepare us homemade breakfast and it's different almost everyday.
Best stay ever”
The best place that I've stayed and will be coming back for my next trip!! Jae Wook is really friendly and always accomadating even during late hours. He's knowledge for transport is awesome. Just check with him whenever you have enquiries. Before my departure, he sent me directions again in how to get to the guesthouse. Really amazing stay.
Great owner, nice breakfast, budget and comfy room”
Haemil Guesthouse is walking distance to Hongik station. Few days before our arrival, the owner, Mr Lee has sent us a clear step-to-step(with photo) guide on how to get to the guesthouse. And it's really useful! Each morning, the guesthouse will prepare us some healthy and delicious breakfast, it's like home cook breakfast, and it's different almost everyday. The room is not big enough but it's just nice for 2 pax. All basic facilities are available (e.g. Hair dryer, TV, heater on floor, air-cond, traveller adapter, hot shower) This was the first time we travelled to Korea. Whenever we need help and suggestion on the place to visit, food to eat, the owner Mr. lee is able to give some really nice and useful guidance and suggestion. Besides, I must say the owner is helpful enough. I realized I left an bracelet in the hotel after leaving Korea. The owner reply is prompted and help me ship to my country. There's nothing more to complain about and I really feel like home staying with Haemil.
Feel Like Home”
Haemil Guesthouse was very comfortable especially you have a tiring trip, they provide good quality of mattress and pillow. It has the home feeling where the owners will greet you personally and guide you during your trip. Their home cooked breakfast were very yummy and delicious. The only drawback is the distance to subway, even though is walking distance, but you will feel far after full day of walking in seoul city. Overall, we enjoyed a lot during our stayed there.
It’s not that bad but for that price, it’s a bit expensive for such quality. The bath room is too small that’s very inconvenient. The is quite clean but looks a bit old. There is a good thing that the bed is comfortable.
staff friendly . this guesthouse has a breakfast . i rest in rooftop everything is very good but toilet not good smell if forgot close the door. not far from Hongik station. and go to Inchone Airport very easy by AREX
My home ain't this bad”
Feel like home is the slogan, and my home ain't this bad. A bit dusty in the room, the shower head is link with the sink tap, the water either too cold or too hot. The facilities is a bit run down. We are freezing after shower. No lift, so don't bring heavy luggage if wish to stay here. It's confused and hard to locate the guesthouse in the deep down alley. The heating system on floor took long time to heat up. Plus points are the staff is very helpful to carry our heavy luggage to the room. It's far from shopping area hence not noisy. The guesthouse located at hipster bar area.
