    The room is a studio apartment style, spacious and comfortable. The location is very near exit 2 of Hongdae station and it was also very easy to get taxis from this area. The Manager is very responsive, kind and helpful. He added our number via WhatsApp and we were able to communicate easily with him to ask him questions and for help. It was a pleasant stay and I would definitely consider staying there again.

    Mr Kim was a helpful host who provided assistance whenever we messaged him via WhatsApp. The apartment was maintained clean by daily disposal of our trash bins & the towels were replaced daily. With utensils & cookware available, we were able to cook some meals in the apartment. The location was conveniently within 5 mins walk from exit 2 of the subway station so u could minimise walking in the cold.

    Worth the stay”

    Good location and 24hrs standby staff ^^

    Guesthouse is bigger than we thought and the location is great. Once you are out of the Green line, take Exit 2 using the escalator. Walk towards the direction of Samsung and look out for Dorocy Shop at the street level and enter into the building to take the left lift up to Level 10 (P.S: Left lift is even levels whilst right lift is odd levels). There you reach the doorstep of the friendly staff from SH Seoulhouse. This guesthouse is very near to the Green Line Subway but quite a fair bit of walking distance to AREX. But who will take AREX everyday right? Therefore, this guesthouse is worth the stay and not to mention, Hongdae shopping/clubbing areas are just across the streets!

    Superb location”

    It was my first time to Seoul and finding accommodation with convenient location was my 1st priority, because I was travelling with 2 young kids and 3 elderly. Read a lot of review that this place was convenient and true enough it was VERY convenient! There is no signage for the guesthouse, but the building is just beside Samsung building which is easily spotted once we are out from Exit 2 of Hongik University subway station. The main office is at Level 8. The host Mr. Kim is very helpful and friendly. Once you "check-in", he will send the details of the room password/room wifi to your phone. It is convenient to have the room with digital lock, so we don't need to worry of forgetting the key. Room is spacious. Basic toiletries are provided and washing machine is also available in every bathroom. There is basic cleaning done daily, except on Sunday, but rubbish bin still gets cleaned and towel changed. There is also 7-11 shop just beside the building.

    Sh hostel is near Hongdae station within 3minutes. Also, there are lots of restaurants opened until 3am. The room will have regular daily cleaning. However, the heater of our room have problem and the staff provide external heater for us. Also, the staff allow us to check in 7am and help us to keep the luggages after we check out. Expect the problem of heater, the experience is quite good and the staff is very kind.

    We had a great stay in SH Seoul Guesthouse and it was really something we could call home during our 6-day stay in Korea. It is very accessible to all modes of transportation and we felt safe coming home to it at any time of the day and night. It is clean, cozy, and all the appliances are working well. The manager is very accommodating and friendly and we felt comfortable talking to him. Given its very affordable price, SH Seoul Guesthouse gives great value for your money. I highly recommend it to friends who will be traveling to Korea.

    Very good location,about 30 meters from exit 2 hongdae subway station,so many restaurant,etc around,The owner very helpfull and the family room was great.

    We traveled as a family with 2 teenagers.We booked a family room,which is so spacious.There is pantry, refrigerator,and drinking water from water dispenser in the room. The internet in the room is very good.We stay here for 15 days.We can shop at the lotte mart and prepare our meals in the pantry. The owner, Mr.Lee is a very kind person and always ready to help us. We could order food delivery with the help of Mr.Lee. He also help us determine which foods are delicious. Kyochon chicken is the most delicious fried chicken, and can be delivered right in front our door. You can ask him anything and he is ready to help. The guesthouse very close to Hongik University Station exit 2 (Line 2), approximately 30 meters. Quite a ride from the airport using airport railroad train and get off at Hongik University St. Directly located in downtown Hongik University, there is so many restaurants, cafes, 7/11, GS25, and stores around. On our last night, we were treated to a barbeque and fried chicken by Mr.Lee. Very pleasant stay. We are highly recommend this place for anyone who is planning a vacation to Seoul. We will definitely come back to this place when comes to Seoul again
