  • 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.

  • Great hostel. Rick really worked hard to make my stay in Seoul enjoyable. Clean, nice rooms, comfortable, and cool people. Also the pub next door is fantastic. I highly recommend staying here, it is at a perfect location right out of the metro stop and a near walk to the Hongdae clubs.
