Located at the top of a steep hill, but not too far from the station. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Comfortable, but pretty basic, which one might expect for the price. Not luxury accommodation, but apparently clean. Some (all?) rooms need to share a bathroom, so be prepared for that.

Some suggestion from what i can observe during my stay in Seoul from its competitors are daily room cleaning, better towels that absorb water n moisture. To sum up all rates is quite on a high side for the...

Good location at Myeong-dong. Futon tatami style of sleeping. Rooms are clean. The slope to the guesthouse is steep at certain location. Try the famous Namsan Pork Cutlet, very near about 3 mins walk.
