I had a wonderful time staying at ICOS. It was at an extremely convenient location, very close to the subway exit and a short walk from Sinchon's center. My room was extremely comfortable and if I had any problems, Youngae was always available to answer me. Great communication and extremely receptive, which made my whole trip much easier. She even...

The guest house is at an excellent location a few minutes away from the circle underground line (2), nearby the cheap shops and restaurants of Ehwa University. It's a beautiful traditional house, the 5 rooms are small (as described), have thin walls and are without view, but are clean and have floor heating. The futon in the Japanese-style room was...

One of the things I will always remember about Seoul is my pleasant stay at this hostel, especially the hospitality of Young Ae. She has been really helpful and friendly during our stay, it almost felt like we were staying at a friend's house. I really love how they preserve the traditional aspect of the house - the entrance door,...

Location: iCOS Women's Guesthouse is about 3-5 minutes walk from Sinchon station exit 5 and the Airport Bus stop yet it is quiet and peaceful. It was a bit difficult to locate at first but I eventually found the small "iCOS" sign near the guesthouse door. They have a passcode for the main door so it's pretty okay for you...
