            Having stayed at 2 guesthouses located in the same area on my trip to Seoul this time, Uwa guesthouse was superior in terms of comfort, cleanliness, facilities. I loved the table on the second floor where my room was as it was a great place to start conversation and know more people. The staff I've met was extremely friendly and warm. Room was quiet and very comfortable. Towels were provided and the bathroom and toilets were clean. Highly recommend for your stay in Seoul, especially solo travellers!

            UWA Guesthouse is by so far the best ever guest house than i had stayed in Hondae area。It is approximately 5 minutes walk from the Hongik University metro. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. They even help to carry luggage to the first and second floor of the building. What truly differentiate this accomodation than others are the large living room with attach kitchen. It is very comfortable during winter and the place you can have a cup of coffee while making friends. The clealiness at the public area and wash room is always at tip top condition. I will definitely come back to this guest house again when i visit Seoul again. Thank you for the hospitality.

            It was my first time to Seoul and Korea!!! And my first-time solo travel!!! The guesthouse is so warm in such a cold winter and the staff (especially Jaho... sorry if I spell your name wrong ><) are really nice and warm-hearted. I got the heat pad twice!! Every morning, I cook my own breakfast in the kitchen, and chat with roommates and a girl from France at night. Really like a big family and feel like home! Definitely will go back to Seoul and visit Uwa again :) Sorry for the late comment, and happy new year!!!

            Uwa Guesthouse is conveniently located near Hongik Station Exit 3. The staff were all very friendly, I forgot the name of the girl receptionist in the morning shift but both her and Song Ho (the male receptionist for evening shift) are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I would stay again in this place for sure if I were to return in Seoul.

            I've stayed at Uwa many times and can say it is the most accommodating guesthouse I've ever been to. Location is in a nice and quiet part of Hongdae, the facilities are nice and clean, and perhaps the most important part is that the staff is composed of extremely kind and generous people who will take care of you!

            Best guest house at Hongdae”

            I stayed in 5 difference hostel during my trip in Seoul and Busan, and UWA guest house is my favorite one. Staff are friendly and helpful. He will help you to carry the luggage to the upper flower. I like the room layout of 4 bed dorm, you have curtain for privacy, nice stair to upper bed, enough space to move, the space under the bed is utilized as luggage storage/locker room. Bread, jam, egg, juice, coffee, milk are provided for breakfast. There are chocolate drink, ginger tea drink, and snacks you can have too. You can also use the kitchen to cook, just make sure to wash the dish after using it. Clean bathroom and toilet. They only provide small towels, so must bring your own toiletries.

            It's convenient. Hongdae station is just 10 mins walking distance from here. GS25 and CU(like 7-11) is just around the corner. Breakfast is provided before you start your day in Seoul. 사장님 is friendly and detailed with everthing in guesthouse when I arrived here. I was enjoy to stay here and I will be here again for my next visit to Seoul. 사장님 감사합니다.

            Perfect place for a week in Seoul”

            I really enjoyed my stay in Uwa guesthouse! The staff as well as the facilities were perfect! Very cosy and relaxing place. The only thing missing was body soap and shampoo in the bathroom, but this is a minor problem. I will be glad to come again if I have the chance!

            It's my second time staying at UWA and I had a great time. Staff were helpful. They recommend good restaurants and bars around the area. The common area on the first floor is so chill, love the ambience and the playlist too (one night they were playing HONNE). My favorite spot in this guesthouse is the rooftop! Will probably stay here again if ever I come back :)

            Perfect for Solo Traveller”

            Nice staff, great environment, perfect location

            I was staying in a room with two twin beds, the room is not big, only include two beds, and one small table, however, it is more comfortable than I expected, cos the guesthouse is quite quiet during at night, people follow the rules that they don't shower after 12am nor blow dry their hair after 11pm. The location is perfect since it is very close to Hongdae station airport exit, very easy to find if you're travelling by ITX to Hongdae. The staff is very nice and they try to help in planning my schedule to visit Seoul. They have been very helpful and warm~ I will suggests friends to stay here for sure!

            Such a nice place to stay!”

            The room is comfortable and clean, tha staffs are very friendly!

            It really was a nice place to stay. The room is so comfortable and clean. The interiors are cute! The staffs are really nice, they made conversation with us eventhough we're mostly gone out early in the morning and got back late lol and luckily we met a lot of nice new friends (roommates)! ah! and soooo close from Hongdae metro station, and this station have a direct train to Airport. In summary it's AWESOME. Definitely going to stay here again if I ever come back to Seoul! :)

            I do definitely recommend this place!!”

            Awesome hostel and staff. This is one of the few hostels I consider to deserve five star. Clean place; close to a subway station. Breakfast is awesome. The staff at this hostel too are awesome. I do definitely book this hostel if I ever happen to be in Soul. Thank you UWA !!
