          It’s a great place to live Everything are great and somoon(manager of the guesthouse) is very kind. She help me a lot. The room is comfortable. The one thing I think isn’t good is that the water of bathroom is hot and cold. But anyway it doesn’t matter, it still a great place to come.

          Great place, not too far from Hongik Station.”
          I booked the Single Studio and it was big enough for a solo traveller - bigger than some places I've stayed in Seoul. Getting to the guesthouse is relatively easy - I prefer using the exit 1 route as it's more straightforward. It is less than a 10-minute walk, depending on how fast you walk. The room was cleaned daily and I enjoyed the privacy given. Breakfast options were limited, but nonetheless great. I enjoyed my stay there. Recommended.

The free breakfast with Coffee, milk, egg, bread ,ham n cheese, orange juice etc , they also provides the towel ,shampoo, conditioner, shower gel n toothpaste . But the hot water supply was not stable . Overall , is a good place to stay and I will definitely stay here again if I'm coming back to Seoul .

          Im glad I booked Duriworld during my stay in Seoul last week. The price worth the facilities. The place was comfortable, clean, and easy to reach from subway station. It's close to some convenience stores and the famous Hongik shopping street. Breakfast's available (toast, bread, egg, cereal, tea, coffee, etc). New towel everyday. Also, Somoon unnie was very kind! Will definitely recommend to my friend and stay there again if I visit Seoul.

          I like the room & the house as it makes you feel like a home. The breakfast is amazing & worth the money. The only cons is you may hear noises from other travelers at the living room especially during night time 12am & early morning 7am. The house is also located a bit far from the shopping area but it is within walking distance. Recommend for those not carrying heavy luggage with you.

          Not recommended for bookin at all”
          This is an honest review based on our experience staying in a private room with bathroom. not sure if solo Travelers will encounter the same experience if they only book a bunk bed. The following are the facts and no one can deny this. 1. The room has mosquitos 2. The room is dusty, including the countertop of the window, the aircon, and the walls 3. The bathroom has moulds 4. Water is sometimes hot sometimes cold and pressure isn’t even 5. The owner said that they would only refund us if someone else booked the room, which put potential guests in health hazards. My bf and I were bitten by the mosquitos very badly (over 40+ bites all over the body) On the first night, I was aware of the dust and mosquitos but I thought there was maybe only one, and perhaps it wasn’t too bad so I didn’t make a noise. Unfortunately the next night it was so bad that we couldn’t afford to stay for a risk of getting any more bites - the experience is horrible.

          This our 2nd time in this guesthouse. We met Sunny, the lead receptionist, at the entrance. She was corteous and willing to assist as always. The other receptionist attitude improved a lot as well. The room that we selected was bunk bed with bath. It was good for the price we paid. We love the breakfast. Though it was a simple korean guesthouse style breakfast, it made our tummy full. This is the best guesthouse to stay if you want to be near Hongkik University (we prefer to stay in hongdae than in myeondong). Overall, We enjoyed staying in DuriWorld.
