The location in Hongdae is great. We love the area - it's young and quirky with lots of activity, shops, restaurants, etc. Also, the residence is only a short walk to the subway, which can take you anywhere in the city. The staff is kind and responsive. They speak English very well in case that's a concern. The breakfast was self-serve as expected; the options were not extensive, but they were good and more than sufficient. This is not a business hotel, so you have to be open to local customs, i.e., the somewhat atypical (to Western eyes) shower arrangement and the requirement to remove your shoes upon entering the building. We had no problem with either, but some people may need to acclimate to the circumstances.
Our initial room was small for three adults. Luckily, after our first night, the staff very graciously moved us to a bigger room, which was great.
Bread, eggs, hams and cheese are provided in the kitchen for you to make your own breakfast. Cereals, milk and juice are also available if you want some simple one.
Property is cozy, staff were really friendly and helpful.
The location is great about 6 minutes walk from train Hongik University Station. The alley was quite quiet but was walking distance to the lively shopping district Hongdae. The host Somoon is friendly and flexible to let me early check in at 13:30pm-ish. There is a small kitchen with sink in room, private toilet and bathroom which is very convenient.
I couldn't sleep well because of the noise. They use password lock but every time room next door return to room, I could hear the sound of locking and unlocking. Also, there is noise outside the window sounds like cicada. But it never stops from midnight until day time which I doubt it is a natural sound. Maybe from a machine which I am not sure what was it but I couldn't sleep well. Also, the bed cover is not fresh, I feel itchy when I sit on it. I have to use my scarf to be the layer in between. Finally, just a reminder to bring your own towel as they only provide two long hand towels.
The location is close to the subway station exit 2, around 8 mins walk, locating at the alley with 7-11 close to it and other local residence. Breakfast is simple but nice. The room is spacious and clean. The staff is nice.
