I had a really good experience staying at Hey Backpackers (2nd location). It was right in the middle of Hongdae which is exactly where I wanted to be. The room was what I expected and the owner was very friendly. It's definitely a good hostel...More

I stayed in the 4 person private room in the basement. While the room was what I expected (minus the complimentary flies), I found the service to be subpar. The room was advertised as having air conditioning, and considering that my trip to Korea was...More

Hey Backpackers 2, I should say is perfect for couple, group of friends, or families. The room we stayed in was at the ground level. It's a private 4- bed room equipped with a mini kitchen, a computer, hot/cold shower, heater, and a cable tv...More

I arrived on friday night and the owner was waiting to meet me, even though I came almost close to midnight. The place isn't big but that means it has a home feel. The living room has a great cable TV, 3 computers, comfy couch,...More

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
