Five years ago we stayed at Lee and No and were disappointed this time they were renovating. we need not have worried as they have this sister property - even better for a family. We had a virtual appartment - kitchen, washing machine, separate bedroom, lovely new bathroom, free wi-fi etc. But what really makes this place is the friendliness...

Staff are friendly and the hostel has a nice rooftop area. Rooms were spacious and felt like living in a private apartment. Two areas for improvement are that there are no elevators and that the bed wasn't as soft as I wished.

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.
