Perfect Stay
Easy check in. Easy check out. Perfect location. Nice bar and cafe across the street. They have heat up blankets which was perfect for the cold weather I encountered. Great wifi too.

Travelled with family
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The guesthouse is quite messy with things placed all over. The facilities and furnishing are quite run down. There’s a washer but no dryer. Very limited drying area. But the location is great as it’s near to Hongdae Shopping Street with lots of shopping, cafes and eateries. As it is also near to Hongik University Station, it’s rather easy to get to major tourist attractions, other shopping streets and places of interest.

It's in Hongdae.
The staff was really friendly, even the owner. They also eat and drink with us. Easy to talk to and know lots of languages. I will surely go back in this hotel.

Good location
It's right in hongdae and close to the subway which was convenient. I just needed a place to sleep since I was in town visiting family members during the day/evening. The place was clean and staff were friendly.
