The owner of the guesthouse, Mr. Young is very helpful, as we're checking out early in the morning as in 6am, we're supposed to drop our keys inside the guesthouse because the door is auto-lock, but my sister left her iPhone in the room, so we called with the phone provided outside the guesthouse & Mr. Young is kind enough...

The owner, Mr. Young, is the best part of SeoulWise. He is always working hard there even though he has a new born child at home. He has worked for Korean Air, traveled quite extensively, and speaks English and Japanese. Therefore he is a wealth of information on the sights of Seoul including calling for a last minute slot on...

Just blocks from the university where the streets are filled with bars and restaurants. We had a private room that was simple, clean, and spacious. The owner grinds his own coffee beans and brews a nice cup of coffee with the simple free breakfast. The owner went out of his way to help us book a flight on a Korean...

Seoulwise is located on a quiet alleyway in the very charismatic area of Hongdae. It was quite easy to get to by train straight from the airport, being less than a 10 minute walk from Hongik University station. The guy at the desk seemed a little stressed as he matter-of-factly explained the rules of the guest house and showed me...

You can tell this is ran by a traveler. The map is very easy to use to arrive - and it's just 5 minutes from the metro. (Tip: If you are arriving from the airport line, take exit 3, its shorter. All other lines its shorter from exit 2). The hostel has a water cooler to use, he gives you...

This was the first guesthouse I stayed and possibly one of my favorite ones! The place is very quiet and clean.

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.

“Room 303 had a problem with the door that even when shut properly, wind would cause it to rattle in the door frame. This woke us up a couple times and was a little bothersome when trying to relax in the room. It may be worth asking if other rooms are available.”

“the 2 private rooms were identical when I stayed there.. best bet is to not worry about what room you will be allocated to. Don't be hesitant to ask Mr. Young any questions if problems do occur in the room.”
