Very enjoyable stay at an excellent hostel”
My stay here was absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend for anyone visiting Seoul. DJ, Robert and Diane were so welcoming and friendly. It was a pleasure being able to chat to them everyday. The hostel itself is very comfortable and cosy, extremely clean and located in an excellent position in relation to the nearest station as well as the Hongdae area. The hostel was also a great place for myself as a solo traveller to make new friends and meet other like minded travellers There was also a free lunch cooked by DJ which was so delicious and a really nice gesture from the hostel to its guests. I will be recommending this hostel to any one visiting Seoul and I hope to be back one day myself :) Thank you Robert, Diane and DJ!
Thank you so very much! It was a pleasure chatting with you as well. You were such a lovely guest and we are glad we were able to make your visit to Seoul a pleasant one. We hope you will be back again, too, and share some more memories with us :) Take care of yourself and see you next time (we'll have some more fun waiting for you). Cheers!!
Decent, Cheap Stay”
I originally booked a private room for my friend and I but there were issues with the server and our booking was no longer available. The staff was very accommodating considering the circumstances. This is a good spot for people who are looking for a low key and communal living space, as it's bunk beds and shared bathrooms. The guesthouse is really cute. I just prefer to stay in private rooms with private baths but if sharing space doesn't bother you, I recommend this place. But it is far from the station and a little hard to find.
So sorry about the issue with your booking. You were very understanding and we greatly appreciate it :) Sorry you also had a bit of a difficulty finsing the place. Do to the booking issue we were unable to send our welcome email which includes a video and map of how to get here. Thank you for still giving such a positive review and we'll make sure the next time you visit everything is perfect! Cheers!!
Nice Stay With Nice Hosts”
The host was very friendly and helpful. From the start when you have booked this guesthouse, an email will be sent to brief you on the details as well as providing a guidance on getting to this guesthouse. You can also expect a fast response from the host should you have any queries. This was my first time staying in a guesthouse so I couldn’t able to do much comparison. However, I think the room and toilet was clean, and still have a comfortable stay throughout here.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We try and give our customers the best service we can, and the best guesthouse experience possible, and we are always thankful when our efforts are appreciated :) Cheers!!
A good place made great by their incredible staff”
The staff and owner are the real stars of the show. Warm, friendly, accommodating, and relatable. One of the best stays I've had in 10 years of travels. They genuinely care about the people that stay with them... And for them should something go wrong, like if someone drank way, way too much. They wouldn't make them feel horrible about it
Big thanks for your stay, wish you so much luck and happiness. Cheers =)
Wonderdul welcoming and staff, clean and calm, very pleasant place and location ! Thank you
Big thanks for being here with us. Wish you so much happiness <3
Wonderful, intimate hostel with welcoming staff. Great location- 10-15 mins walk to the Hongik subway station and 5 mins away from the lively Hongdae and Sinchon shopping areas. Lots of delicious restaurants around as well! The only feedback is that the shared washrooms can sometimes get damp and untidy, but still useable. Otherwise the staff are friendly and maintains good communication throughout my stay, and the single room which I stayed in was very spacious and comfortable!
Big thanks for being here with us. We will be missing you !! Oops, already miss you =) Full of love, happiness, luck, friendship, delicious things as always for you. Cheers <3 * We will keep our eyes on it. Thank you for your feedback, even it's shared bathrooms though.
Excellent place to stay”
this place is so beautiful and cozy! me and my sister stayed here.. our flight was delayed so we reached late at night, but DJ was attentive,.. he sent me all the details, we had no problems finding the place at 1 am in the night and plus the shared dorm was so comfortable and spacious! definitely coming back again
Thank you for your stay with us. And we are waiting for your coming back =) Enjoy your trip to Korean to the fullest !! With your beautiful smile, anywhere you go, it will be the best place for you.
Nice relaxing place”
Attention to detail is great in this hostel, they leave a handwritten nice little note on your bed on arrival with a chocolate. It's quiet so really nice to come back to after busy days sightseeing around Seoul. DJ the owner is lovely. He's so passionate about Seoul and will give you loads of tips about places to see or good restaurants to eat in and he cooks lunch on Tuesday. Also they upgraded me to a single room even though I had booked a dorm so that was really nice! I stayed in other hostels in South Korea where there was breakfast included so I would have liked it there too, even if it means paying a bit more. Other than that 10/10!
Big thanks for your stay with us. We will keep doing our own lovely service to make our guests happy.. Enjoy your wonderful trip and magical life with full of love and happiness. Cheers <3
Definitely will visit again”
Highly recommend. This is a very comfortable hostel you can really enjoy the sunshine and the atmosphere. It locate at a quite and safe neighborhood, also is very closed to metro, bus station and Hingi Univ. shopping distract. And the most important is, the staffs are so helpful and friendly. Definitely will visit again.
Hello Menghan, thank you for you stay with us. Making our guests happy makes us happy as well ^_^ We have hand made windows, so hopefully you enjoyed it. Hope to see you again soon for the next chance. Wish you so much happiness and luck.
A New must stay hostel in Hongdae”
1. average price but super satisfied 2. 5 minutes from airport train exit and Hongdae main street 3. all clean beds, rooms and toilets. as well as common area 4. all the staff were so kind, especially the French guy and Turkish lady 5. strongly recomend for travelers for their full relaxation
Thank you for your good review, this place almost from our hands. So hopefully you enjoyed our hand made windows, light boxes, doors, common area and kitchen everything...So maybe that's the reason, look warm. Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes =)
The best hostel”
Hostel is near Hongdae shopping street and near bus stop + subway (Hongik uni. station). It so very comfortable. And many thanks for make me feel like stay my home. Thanks for everything!! We’ll back again soon.
Thank you so much! Your stay was a lovely one for us, and we hope you do come back soon! We'll try and keep the place cozy and will make you feel home again when you come back :) Cheers!!
All the staff are very nice. The place is cozy and clean, especially the shower rooms, I'm impressed! The location is really good, except that you will have to walk a bit up the hill, would be tired if you have a big luggage.
Thank you for your stay with us, wish you so much happiness as always. =) We could be more quiet and shiny cuz of that bit hilly, please kindly understand us. Cheers <3
DJ and Robert are amazing and so welcoming! They have great recommendations and will help you plan an itinerary. The Tuesday lunch was fantastic and a great way to try local dishes! The vibe is really nice. If you want to drink or go out, the party sister hostel is super close to go hang out at.
It was great pleasure to have you here. We will be missing you, full of love and happiness as always for you. Cheers =)
nice place to travel around the city and nearby. ”
easy to get buses and train from there. the nearby area is also nice to hang out to some cute cafes and shops. It's students and young people area.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hongdae is one of the best places in Seoul for hanging out, and we are glad you took advantage of it :) Hope to see you again!
Nice and warm hostel”
it is convenient to walk from the hongik university station to the hostel, once you remember it, it is easy to go back to hostel. You could learn how to the direction by watching the video provided by the staff. The room was neat and tidy. Staffs are kind and helpful. Although it has a different structure than what I saw in the picture in Agoda, it is nice, all the elements I need is there except hair dryer, but it could be used in the shared bathroom. Thank you TTR!:)
You are very welcome!! We are glad our video helped you to find the place easily. We have multiple rooms, each with its own decoration, so the rooms can look different than the photo. We do try and make sure all of them are comfortable, though :) Thanks for the review and we hope we will meet you again. Cheers!!
It was an ok stay ”
I have mixed feeling about this place. Its super small for the number of people that it holds. We were put in the wrong room the first night with a bunk bed and a single shoved together. We were moved to the correct room the day after. It’s very minimalistic, the bathroom is basic with no shelving so everyone’s stuff is scattered around, it’s feels like more of a hostel than a guest house. I think if I had paid half the price I wouldn’t mind but when you are paying more I expected it to be better. It is in a very good location close to main street and its easy to get to the airport as the station is at the bottom of the hill. The host Robert was lovely.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review the place. We try to make our guesthouse feel more like a home than a guesthouse. Sorry we weren't able to meet your expectations. We hope you still had a wonderful time in Seoul and returned home safe and sound. Cheers!!
Close to Hondae station, walkable distance to shopping area.”
Staff there is very friendly, could meet a lot of new friend. Room is clean and cozy. Although is share bathroom, don’t need wait for long time to use, also very clean.
We are so glad you had a nice stay here. We do our best to keep it clean and cozy. Hope to see you again and share some more fun times :)
Comfortable and ideal hostel for 1st visit to Seoul”
Loved staying here, the staff were great. The hostel is easy to find, the nearby area has plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs. The vibe of the hostel is great, you can read a book or meet fellow travellers. The friday bbq was fun, DJ is so accommodating and helpful. Highly recommended
Big thanks for your lovely review. Making our guests happy is our first mission, so thank you for joining our event like Korean BBQ night out as well. Hope to see you again for the next chance, so enjoy your life to the fullest until then. Full of love and happiness as always for you <3
I liked everything about this place”
Great location, near Hongdae and Sinchon. Close to the metro and airport railroad. Comfortable, clean and relaxing place full of interesting things to read. Everyone working there is super kind and DJ will tell you everything you need to know to visit the city. A place that will make you feel at home. I loved the BBQs and lunchs on Friday and Tuesday. Warning: you will want to extend your stay.
Big thanks for your stay with us. We will keep this good vibe for our guests. Making Korean food and having BBQ together make us happy. Please keep it as a good memory. Wish you so much love and happiness.<3
My friend and I had a truly wonderful time staying in this hostel and will cherish the memories. If I'm ever in Seoul again I will certainly stay there, and will be sure to recommend it to any friends I have that visit. DJ and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and were even kind enough to cook us some authentic delicious Korean food one day.
Thank you for your stay with us. Wish you so much love and happiness, enjoy your wonderful life and see you in future <3
