      It’s easy to find and to access station. Minus point only in the shower room (maybe it can be less messier). Just put showering gel and shampoo from the guesthouse is sufficient rather than letting people put their shower equipments there.

      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.

      In the end I did not stay in the hostel, but it was not because of the hostel. Friends from Seoul hosted me. The staff was lovely! I left shoes and they were waiting for me when I came back for them. The location is excellent, there are plenty of bars and restaurants and excellent food in the area. The room is very comfortable. Only the smell in the hostel was not so pleasant. But I highly recommend! Thank you :)

      First time staying in guesthouse and got awesome experience!About 5min walk from subway and nice surrounding to have a walk.Staff are friendly and helpful.Show the surrounding,facilities available and at times the staff and guests come together have fun talking and games. Clean bed, toilet and surrounding. No worries to stay in mixed room as there is curtain for every bed, thus there is sufficient privacy when you sleep. A cozy place like own home to live in. Regretted for not booking this guesthouse throughout my trip. I will definitely be back to UWA for my next visit!

      Great Hostel, Great People”

      This hostel is in a great location near the central plaza. It's hidden, so it's still quiet at night. Overall, it was clean, even with many people using things 24/7. The staff is really cool and friendly. Breakfast is good and stays open until 12pm for late risers. The only drawback is the facilities are limited. There's only one bathroom/shower for all male guests. I'm not picky about my bed, but it was very thin, and somewhat uncomfortable. Other people had thicker beds, so maybe it helps to check in early? Overall, it's a good value for the money.

      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 :)

      I was staying in a 4-bed female dormitory this time. The room was tidy and comfortable. The guesthouse is equipped with adequate facilities and amenities. No curfew. It takes about 3-5 minutes to walk from Hongik University Metro Station Exit No.3 to the guesthouse. Staff are really helpful. Highly recommended to solo travller.

      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!!!

      The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Especially that guy staff wearing glasses, 저분이 엄청 친절하셨어요. 제 한국말 너무 나빠서 죄송해요. 근데 저에게 한국말로 말했으니까 정말 감사합니다. The bed was way larger, could fit 2 people, as well as the dorm room. Clean shower and bathrooms. Got powder room/corner for female guest. On the second day of my stay I was transferred to mixed dorm since my booking for female only dorm was only for a night. I was assigned to the top part of bunk bed. When I returned, someone occupied my bed and the staff weren't informed. However, they managed to give me a new one that is much better than the first one. 도와주셔서 감사합니다^^ The atmosphere inside is really really relaxing. Will definitely recommend to friends and stay here again.

      Excellent Guesthouse in Hongdae”

      The hosts were accommodating, the rooms/beds/shower areas were neat, and there's ample space to put my luggage in (with lock). Surprisingly, the bunk beds had enough room to sleep in, as well as, enough space to squeeze in your electronics if you need to do some browsing before snoozing. Location was great since it's very close to where the restaurants, coffee shops, and the night life is. Overall, I enjoyed my stay. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
