A very homey hostel ”
Hostel was a little off the main road (have to walk through some dark alleys with a few eateries and convenience shop to get to hostel), quite scary to walk alone at night. Common room was very small which is also good because everyone got to bond together there, not much of a quiet time on your own. Some drinks & cereals provided for breakfast! Room was really small and a little cramp, however toilet was en-suite which is great! Very friendly and helpful staff that will feed you with all the information you need, also amazing bunch of travel lots I met here :) it’s the vibes that makes this hostel great.
location was great, guesthouse owners were both approachable and helpful. ”
location was few minutes walk to hapjeong station, too many restaurants around the area to try on, and walking distance to hongik univ. Zzzip Guesthouse owners Gina and Bryan were really great. Place was clean and well maintained. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and relatives.
should have stayed and not tried another hostel”
Will definitely be staying here my whole trip next time and will not try a nearby hostel. This is near the subway, cafes, restaurants, everywhere! And people here are far nicer too. Hope to see these guys again! The bathroom is spotless clean btw!
Gina the host also made sure that I could find my way around!
I stayed here for two nights and I would definitely want to come back. This guesthouse meets it all what it has to offer. What I like especially is the seperated common area from bedroom area. This makes bedrooms keep quiet always.
Host was friendly and helpful. She gave tips on where to go and what to eat. Room and toilet were well kept, breakfast was nice and the location was easy to find. It was also very near to the metro station.
I feel very warm like i'm at home”
I really fall in love with this guesthouse, Since the location is not far from Hapjeong Station Exit 3 and 5. You can reach the guesthouse from exit 3 in 5 mins. Bryan oppa and Jina unnie is very very friendly and helpful. I feel very warm while i stayed here. Room is not small, ฺBreakfast is provide. I will stay here again when i go to Seoul in the future.
Nice stuff, nice breakfast, clean&good environment. Its a bargain! But the location is not as close to the metro station as I think, its a little bit inconvenience for traveler who have big luggage. However, its still a very nice experience.
Definitely come back here!”
All your basic needs fulfilled here - breakfast, syampoo, bodywash, free flow of Hot /Cold water. Just bring your own body towel as only free small towel face provided. Good wifi connection. walking distance 5mins from Exit 5 Hongik station Line 2. 10mins walking to main Hongdae nightlfe activities. Food cafe just around the corner and many choices. laundry service also provided with a lil charges. Quiet and peaceful area. Owners - Jinna and Brian provided good hospitality service. Toilet and bathroom is clean! the most important criteria during stay. Will come back stay here again next time.
Lively but restful stay”
It's a great place for bar hopping. The place is surrounded by bars and restaurants but nestled inside a relatively quiet area so you can come back and rest before heading out again. Staff is attentive and friendly. A few blocks away from Subway station and centrally located so you can hit all the tourist spots in the city. Highly recommend if you want to party.
The host and her family were the best- they were very attentive and helpful. The host can also speak English and Japanese well, which made it easier for me to communicate. It's a 5-10 minute walk from the station surrounded by the local shops, restaurants and bars. The rooms and beds were nice and comfy. If anything, having 2 bathrooms per floor (one male, one female) was little uncomfortable, but we were out most of the time so it's perfectly fine. Very good value for money!
It was OK. I think this hostel is overrated. ”
Things I liked: - easy access to subway (Hapjeong station) - friendly staff - sent email to guests with perfectly described directions - nice and clean hangout area - good breakfast - clean dorm room Things I didn't like: - moldy, smelly bathrooms - only 2 small lockers in a room for 4 - paper-thin doors and walls - right on a drinking street (noise at night) I stayed there on a Saturday and I could hardly sleep with earplugs on. The noise outside and other guests returning to their rooms at night were too much, compared to other hostels I've stayed at.
Super attentive staff makes for a great place!”
My friends and I were very satisfied with our stay. We had one small problem (the toilet stopped) flushing, but informed the staff as we left to go out for the evening. They responded immediately, but we unable to locate the necessary parts to fix it that evening, so we were offered a 50% discount for the inconvenience. I was impressed with how quickly they acted, and how they offered us a discount because of the trouble. The staff is super friendly and competent. Will definitely stay here again!
The owners are really friendly, Happy to help with any questions. The guests seem to be the type that are sociable so its easy to meet other travellers here. Very recommended.
Love this place and people!”
Thank you Gina and Brian for such an amazing stay and recommendations. Can’t wait to see you guys again!
Clean, safe, conveniently located”
No complaints. Friendly people and a good environment to be in after an exhausting day of travel.
One of the best guesthouses I had ever experienced.”
The location is so convenient and pleasant. Meet a lot of great people. Jina, Brian and their two kids are indeed amazing people and extremely helpful.
Nice and cozy”
I just booked before closed. but host welcomed me with smile. the room was cozy and warm to stay. Unfortunately I missed the breakfast to leave earlier.(hope the breakfast starts earlier; like 8am if possible) Anyway it was good to stay, there are many foreign friends. If i visit Seoul again, I would like to stay here. Thank you.
I've been backpacking for for 6 months and this location is definitely my favorite hostel. I'm not a city-girl, but during my visit to Seoul, the hosts and the guests made this experience very heartwarming! The hosts are like family, the rooms are cozy, the bed is comfy, the facility is clean, and the guests you meet will transition from strangers to friends very quickly. I have been living on a very small budget and when I saw the price per night, I was nervous, but WOW, I do not regret a dime I spent.
Great little guesthouse!”
Brian and Jina are some of the nicest hosts I have ever met, and I have been travelling around the world for over 10 years. It is a family run guesthouse and located not far from the nightlife district of Hongdae, right near Hapjeong Station on Metro Line 2 & 6. Makes getting around Seoul to see the sights very easy. The room was very cosy, and had a great bathroom attached. We were in Seoul in minus 16 Celsius weather and the room was very warm at night. Had a peaceful nights sleep. Free breakfast in the morning, which included cereal, toast, tea, coffee and orange juice. Brian and Jina were great with recommendations on what sights to see and where to eat and certainly made our time in Seoul much more pleasurable. (I was a bit unorganised for this trip and they made me feel alot better!) The guesthouse is very secure, with a passcode into your own room, as well as the main door and main gate so is very safe if you are travelling solo. I would not hesitate to stay here again!
