                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 !!

                Short but great stay!”

                Walking distance from Exit 3 Hongik Uni Stn. Serves decent breakfast (e.g. eggs, sliced bread, butter, peanut butter, strawberry jam, coffee, tea). Their ginger tea with honey calmed my nerves and muscles after a long day. I had a sound sleep. Very comfortable bed and clean toilet. They offer towels for free but guests have to bring their own toiletries (e.g. soap and shampoo). Thanks to the owner (forgot his name - sounds like Jiho) and Aden for a warm welcome. They are very accommodating. Highly recommended!

                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 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.

                Great place!”

                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 :)

                The place is very clean even though the staff are lenient on rules. The staff are also very friendly and helpful, and I liked the simple breakfast they provide - toast, some spreads, coffee, juice, tea. It's my 2nd time staying, and would book again when I come back to Seoul. Thank you UWA Guesthouse!

                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.

                Hostel is set up very casually, staff and owner are friendly and helpful. The house is clean and cozy and the room is quite spacious. A short walking distance to the subway stations. The hostel almost provide all we needed. I would definitely come back next time I am traveling to Seoul.

                Staff are friendly. I like the common room, warm and comfort. But breakfast start at 9 am, please provide earlier. Feel not comfort if use the lavatory because its separate from shower room and no water.

                can walk to the happening hongdae strip. We received a email after booking to inform us that the room is small. Just be mentally prepared the room is small but the bathrooms and public areas are perfectly fine and spacious. bonus; a small electric heater inside the room for the winter!

                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.

                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.
