I had to book a place last moment this December, and what a pleasant surprise! It's right in the middle of Hongdae, one of the liveliest university neighborhoods in Seoul, and at a steal deal price. For comparison...it was cheaper than the cheapest Airbnb in the area. It was fully equipped, warm, and even included a simple but sufficient breakfast....

Found this hostel online after researching better ones compared to the hostel I've stayed at before, this Hongdae Guesthhouse is AMAZING. Mary and the entire staff are so nice and the place is super clean and homey.

Staying in Hongdae

Neighbourhood Profile
Hongdae
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
