            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.

            always have a great and pleasant time with Duri World. I have been to Korea countless time and always stay at Duri World since the first time I go to Seoul since 3 years ago. I have been to seoul on summer, autumn and spring but this is my first winter in seoul. the room is really warm during the winter even its below 0°C outside. everything is good. and always feel like homey. but may be the water shower need to be fixed :) definitely will be back again to Duri World House next time ^^

            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.

            My 2nd time staying here. It might be a bit far from Hongik station, but then it was quiet and nearer to some of the small coffee shops and cafes. I love the breakfast prepared 💕💕. For just a hostel, the breakfast given was more than the usual bread and coffee. The staff was super nice and helpful. Will come back if I need to stay in Hongdae again.

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!

            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.

            The location is a bit far from subway (5 min. for walking) but it's not big problem because there have a lot of cafe and restaurant along the way. Sunny, manager of this guesthouse, is very kind, warm and helpful. She always willing to assist us. She also ask to give us free laundry! The room is clean, good environment , full of facilities and worth for money that I paid. I really recommended this guesthouse. Do not hesitate to book! Would return to stay again :)

            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.
