    I have stayed at the Kimchee Hongdae Guesthouse many times during my stay in Korea. I was absolutely impressed by the excellent service I received and the location was tucked away for minimal distractions. I highly suggest Kimchee for your stay in Korea.

    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
