Seoul has a great underground system, very easy to use, so any location close to a underground station is convenient. I enjoyed the short walk through the suburban streets between the guest house and the underground station. Hi Guest House is clean and what you would expect from a hostel. The man on staff was watching baseball most of the... More

It wasnt hard to find since it is near the subway station and ive studied the map beforehand.

Mr.lee,the host, is quite busy because i think hes the only one who runs... More

The guesthouse was very basic and intact, not to mention very pretty. It had everything we needed, from a self-service style breakfast to clean fresh towels, soap, shampoo, and even toothpaste (in case you forgot that!). Others you can quickly avail upon request. The owner, Mr. Lee, was very helpful and easy to talk to which was one of the... More

I've spent 4 nights and it was very good. Everything is very clean, quiet and the people are very friendly. A little bit difficult to find the house, so maybe the first time better to take a cab. Then the people from the house will explain you everything and how to get the subway. The subway is not so far,... More

Location: couple mins walk to Mangwon Station. Hongik area is also within walking distance 10/15mins. Local market, GS25, McDonald are all nearby. Room: nothing fancy & simple layout. Its about middle size with basic amenities you would expect (air-cond, hair dryer, cable TV, WiFi etc) Bonus: Decent breakfast, Free Laundry Overall, I pretty enjoyed my stay there in Hi Guesthouse....
