Okay, this may be in year 2014, and I travelled to Korea in 2012, but it doesn't stop me from writing a review for this guesthouse as soon as I create an account in tripadvisor. Because yes, staying in this guesthouse is that memorable! I travelled with my friends in 2012, and there were four of us. We got a...

Stayed here for 4 nights and it was my first time to Korea. This place has a great location in Hongdae close to so many bakeries, coffee shops and cute cafes, and shopping and so on! Free breakfast is available each morning, making the value even better than it already was. It's quiet, very clean, and has spacious rooms too....

This is my second time in Seoulwise Guesthouse and I have to say that I'm always glad that I've picked this place. I've changed my reservation several times before I've reached and Mr Young was really patient with that. One of my friends came in crutches and we had to rent a wheelchair for her.

Stayed in this Guesthouse for 5 days in April 2012 with my family and I've already recommended some friends and office mates visiting Korea to stay here and they have not been disappointed.

We stayed in a double room for 5 nights, toilet ensuite. An overall enjoyable stay with a welcoming common area where international guests and the hosts hang out, have breakfast, use the internet, etc. Superb location Within 15 mins walk to Hongdae, which is arguably the best mix of F&B, shopping, clubbing and culture in Seoul. It's real nice to...

This is my fourth stay in Seoul, and my second at Seoulwise Guesthouse, and we will definitely be back again. The location is great. Hongdae is easily reached from the airport by AREX train and airport limo bus (we prefer the train), and the area has plenty of great options for dining. The Hongik University train station is also well...

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.”
