If you take the Airport railway line (AREX) from Incheon airport (47mins) or Kimpor airport (14mins), you can arrive directly to Hongik Univ. station without changing to other trains.

It's about 10mins walk from Hongik Univ. station (홍대입구역), exit 3 to our property.

Walk straight until the intersection where you'll see a blue police sign high up, turn right and follow the big road being on the left until you find the blue sign 'Donggyo-ro 41-gil', take a left on that sign and stay on the right side of the road with many trees in the middle, you will pass by a small cafe named 'Design', keep on going for around 4mins.Then once you see a small restaurant called 'In Season' on the right (black color sign, at the corner), and a playground on the left, keep going straight and you will see a sign on the wall 'Whitetail', take a right turn for further 5 meters and you are there.
