  • Location was great, 1 min walk by subway station and 5 min to Hongdae. Clean, convenient boutique hostel. Beds are so comfortable. Hostel owner Rick was great, he thinks everything to comfort customers and also very friendly. Even we found earplug and eyeband in our room. I've stayed 3 another hostel at hongdae also but the closest was my fav. aand i forgot to say that breakfast was awesome. :)

  • Rick, the owner of the hostel, proved to be both helpful and kind. I set my feet in Korea for the first time that day and Rick warmly welcomed me to the guesthouse. His guesthouse was clean, well-equipped and the wifi was fast. What's there to complain? :) I would highly recommend the guesthouse to my friends.
