It’s a short distance walk from Hongdae Station and Hongdae Fashion street where people busker. The room was bigger than I expected and well-equipped. There are microwaves, ref, and electronic stove that you could use if you prefer trying to cook. The room was spacious and it’s easy access to other tourist location. Being in Hongdae meant every night we were in Hongdae hahaha and yes life in Hongdae lasts until 1am and so. The reception is in another building but they were still helpful. Very great location and value for money. Would consider booking here again.
Room is spacious and near to Hongik university station”
Room is big and spacious for four of us with a lot of luggages. Was happy to know that our room is at second floor. The room and toilet is clean. The place is located near to Hongik University station. Just a few minutes walking distance. It is also near to cafe and Loteria. The room is bit warm. We need to open the windows at night to sleep and we can't adjust the temperature. Other than that, overall is good. Will surely recommend it to my friends.
Value for money”
The guesthouse is located 5-8 mins walk from subway, though within the Hongik area it is not in the busy center. Say the center of Hongik is exit 9 while the closest exit to guesthouse is exit 14. However, it is within walking distance. I would like to thank Serena and Mickey for their help on check in and check out. Also Mickey helped us to search for money exchange store, great thanks! We stayed in 4 people room which is extremely spacious and comfortable.
Pros : close to Hongdae and subway (exit 7). The room is very spacious for the four of us and it has small kitchen which allows us to do some cooking. Cons: The water heater sometimes does'nt work in the shower.
We stayed in the big room with 5 of us. It says you can fit 6, but there are 5 beds with 1 of them being a double bed. We were helped by Akira and John during the trip and they were very helpful. There is cheap laundry service, they ordered delivery for us because we wanted to try some jajangmyun. They spoke English very well. One of the main reasons we chose to stay here was because the location is just a 5 minute walk from the airport railway that stops in hongdae. It was also just a 5 minute walk into the town where we spent every other night shopping and eating. The room was spacious and I would definitely recommend it for groups and families of 3-5
The reception counter are full of part- timers staff which look like local students, they could be friendly but not professionally serving customers. The area which allows to keep our luggage is very small until they put our luggage at the door and expose to outsider. no luggage tags provided. Safety is a big issues. Even notice given, after 11.30pm, guests are making lots of noise too. The cooking facilities are not explain to us well upon check in. Very ignorance of the staff, no pan but providing stove only, only can boil water. The information given are not accurate, we email to ask what is the best way to come from Incheon airport, they asked us to take airport shuttle but need to walk far from the station whereas later we found out, if we take subway/metro from airport, we can come out from Exit 7, Hongik Station and walk to the main road and cross the road will reach the hostel. Overall, the cleanliness was just ok, not really happy with that, that is no public area to hang out too, at night, we had walked in dark lane to come in, and the hostel safety under CCTV monitoring does not give the sense of security.
Clean, Friendly Staff, Near to Subway station”
Clean and comfortable. especially staff that name Justin was so friendly and so fun to talk with. He make sure everything was good in our room and try his best to fix the lamp. Free laundry and free delivery charges was so suprising for us!
It was a great staying. Very spacious room for 4 of us. Very near to subway n we dont have to tranfer train to or from Incheon International airport. The room is comfortable and worth for money. Laundry also very cheap. Thanks to all the staff of Ya Korea Hostel Hongdea.
not the best but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for 4-6 people”
I come with my family, consist of 6 people. This is our first time to Korea, and we dont use any travel agent. So, public transport is essential to us. This hostel is nearby to Hongik Univ train station (5-7 min walk) with lots of convenience stores and coffee shops around. 10 min walks, you will found several malls. The staffs are friendly and always ready to help. If they are not around, you can call them with in-house phone. However, they don't make up your bed and clean your room unless you tell them to do so. They don't do it with scheduled time. Ultimately, good stay here. I'm satisfied, not the best but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for 4-6 people.
Nice staff (but bath room equipment was poor)”
excellent staff .He help us to find our (lost bag) and help us to get the information about our trip.when we don't konw the location of the hostel ,he give a clear and simple instruction to go to the hostel. Also,this hostel staff were friendly.They were friendly to recommend a place to us and help us to check the time of the ticket to airport. But the bath room equipments were poor. The water sink was falling water from below sink .The water will touch my foot(wet).Also,the toile cannot flushing at the second day. The water system was very poor. The room equipments are good for family to cooking.
Spacious room near Hongik UniversitySubway Station”
The Guesthouse is conveniently located at a 3 minutes walk away from Hongik Subway station which links directly to the airport and many other places of interest around Seoul. It is pretty easy to find by following the directions given by the staff. The guesthouse is located nearby Hongik which is known for it's nightlife, unique cafes, galleries and indie music scene. The guesthouse is also within walking distance to Ewha which is great for shopping. The guest room is clean and really spacious. The room has ondol heating, a television, hairdryer, towels provided and even a small kitchen with a fridge where you can cook or boil water. The staff are helpful and they speak simple English with no problems. If you would like to mingle with other guests, you could also head over to Kimchee Sinchon 1 Guesthouse which is just next to it. We booked the room during their opening promotion and it was really good value for money due to its impeccable location and how spacious the room is.
During our 8 days stay, there’s no housekeeping done. The toiletries were not replenish. The pillows are old and thin as well.
good room and good location”
the big room and good location
Great Hostel to Stay”
Good price, located in university area so cheap for food, and many shops around. Near hotel also has bakery and restaurant for eat and can delivery too. Near subway and Arex
1.hot shower hard to adjust and water pressure low for hot water,had to bath with cold water 2. Hidden location 3. Comfort stay
Big & spacious room”
The room is big and spacious. However, the room interior seems quite old fashioned as compared to the picture in Agoda. The bathroom smell and not properly clean. Location is the the other side of Hongdae busy area which is good for us. And another plus point is we can take the express train to airport from Hongik stn.
Korea trip 2017”
Room was big equipped with kitchen and cooking utensils. Private bathroom, shampoo, body wash, hair dryer, tv, stove and fridge. Bought sim card at the guesthouse that was really cheap than at the airport. Wifi was good. Totally rrcommended
Pros: Location is good, very near to bus stops and convenience stores. Room is good and clean. Cons: The electric sockets sometimes don't work properly. Pillow is too thin and soft. Room lighting can be improved. Overall: recommended.
bed bugs and the room has funky smell
could have been good”
if you're particular with cleanliness then need to look for somewhere else. there were bed bugs. can also do some improvement with customer service.
