The room looks like never clean up and the water cant get hot in winter. The WORST place I have ever been. The TV have noise and cant work sometime.The two advantage are location and price.If your skin is sensitive or have allergies,I wont recommend this hotel. 非常糟糕的一間旅店,住過5個國家以上的旅店,讓我最想退宿的一次。房間有蚊子且超級無敵髒,床還有屑屑,地熱要開到70度才有感覺。

For the biggest part of our stay we stayed in a 3-4 person room which was decent for size, but the room was very unclean. There was black mold nearly everywhere, the toilet was loose and unstable and clearly too old to be used for a guesthouse. The kitchen wasn't properly cleaned and the cabinets were nearly falling apart. The...

This is the kind of place criminals would hide from the government. The place has extremely poor beds, dirty room and dirty bathrooms. The door has a lock which is never closed so everyone could just walk in. On top of that you can hear the sound of a club every night in your room. Definitely not the place you...

It's in the middle of Hongdae so it's close to a lot, if not all, of things. Shopping, food, subway, 24-hour convenience stores, parties, etc. Communication is also not that hard in these parts since the market includes students and foreigners. The rooms are kinda spacious, the beds are not that small, the common area and the bathroom are spacious...

So, this place is awesome, you stay in an actual apartment with a living room and kitchen and you share the bedroom. So if feels like a giant sleepover, it's great. Explore the city during the day, in the evening go out to several of the great food places nearby or have a beer, return back for a movie or...

Pretty standard hostel in an outstanding location. If you get the six bed dorm room, the price is unbeatable but it's not so easy to find. There are two locations with two blocks of each other.

I found this hostel on Google, and honestly, the website was quite unattractive and full of grammatical mistakes. Still, I decided to give this hostel a shot as the rates were really cheap. I think the owner tried to be nice and friendly, but he came across as slightly weird to me, and I was not exactly comfortable with that....

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.

“Take the a/c remote with you when you go out, or hide it so the manager cannot take it. Also, be aware that he will go into the room daily to open windows and to check that everything is turned off.”

“I tried the shared room and i didn't encounter any problem. Maybe you should consider getting the private room if ever you're with someone and you guys need some extra privacy.”
