Kimchee Dongdaemun Guesthouse was very accessible to public transportation: Jongno 5ga subway line 1 exit 4, and Jongno 6ga bus stop. A handful of Korean restaurants are also situated on its alley, but if you go out to the main road and walk probably about 5 minutes towards Jongno 5ga subway stop, you'll find a very cheap soondae restaurant (I...

It's up to all standards of hostel-style accommodation. Rooms are clean, staffs are nice, & location is great. The cafe on rooftop also turns into a pub at night. Such a great fun to chat with other tourists. However, it's kind of red light area there as well. It's a little dangerous for girls travelling alone who come back late...

I stayed here for three night at a dorm. It's very close to a lit of hotspot places in Dongdaemun. The staff is very nice and helpful. Had a lot of fun with the staff and I guess the cleaning could be improved though. Very cheap prices.

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighbourhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
