            My home ain't this bad”
            Feel like home is the slogan, and my home ain't this bad. A bit dusty in the room, the shower head is link with the sink tap, the water either too cold or too hot. The facilities is a bit run down. We are freezing after shower. No lift, so don't bring heavy luggage if wish to stay here. It's confused and hard to locate the guesthouse in the deep down alley. The heating system on floor took long time to heat up. Plus points are the staff is very helpful to carry our heavy luggage to the room. It's far from shopping area hence not noisy. The guesthouse located at hipster bar area.

            Facilities are fair enough, the owner was nice enough to help us girls carry our luggage to the rooftop room. However, the ceiling is so low that if you are taller than 165cm you will need to bow your head in your room all the time. Not sure about other rooms, maybe because we took the rooftop room.

            The room is perfect for me. Everything is fine. Water heater, heater, all good. Wifi strong. Room is quiet as it was the only room on the rooftop. Peacefully sleep. Location is good. Surround by all those pretty cafes. CU (groceries stores something like 7/11) just around the corner. Walking distance to train station. Walking distance to shopping district 👍🏻

            A place you can treat it as you 2nd home”
            Everything has its pros and cons, this one definitely pros more than cons. Let's start with cons, as all guest houses will have similar feature, the facilities aren't as secured as Hotels. Second, the locations were close to the metro but It's not an obvious place you can find easily. Then here comes the pros, the owner is very nice, he helped us in ordering takeaway and everything, as you know it's really hard to do something if you don't speak Korean. Let's talk about the room, the room wasn't designed for luxury but it's abosolutely designed for people who would like to experience Morden Korean culture. The heater is very power that even under 0 degree the floor and the room is kept warm, but I suggest you should bring moisturiser as the room would be a bit try. No bathtub that doesnt bother me at all. And choosing guesthouse or hotel in Hongdae is really a wise decision as the location is very convenient to most tourist spots and local always pick-up at Hongdae.

            The room itself is fairly average, but the bed and the pillows are super comfortable. Staff is kind and helpful. The location is great: a hidden little artistic community, away from the throngs of Hongdae students, with nice cafes, patio bars, excellent restaurants, art galleries and interesting architecture. If Hongdae is jammed with 20-year-old students, this area seems lightly populated by 30-year-old artists. It's a bit of a walk from the subway (10 minutes), but worth the walk, and the manager gives you a very detailed map. Recommended!

            This is my second time to stay in Haemil Gueshouse and the guesthouse owner could recall me, LOL ~~~ Still, this time we had very pleasant stay. The guesthouse is clean and comfortable. Price for accommodation per night is very good and I bet you would agree this ! Breakfast is included yet simple, it is pretty much like something you usually have for breakfast at home. The guesthouse owner is a very friendly and helpful gentleman. He helped us to order food delivery, offered us to extend the check out time, etc. we very much appreciated his kindness and would like to come back again in our future visits to Seoul !

We have different kinds of breakfast each day and all are delicious. The host is nice and helpful as well. We surely will stay there when visit Seoul next time

            Haemil Guesthouse is walking distance to Hongik station. Few days before our arrival, the owner, Mr Lee has sent us a clear step-to-step(with photo) guide on how to get to the guesthouse. And it's really useful! Each morning, the guesthouse will prepare us some healthy and delicious breakfast, it's like home cook breakfast, and it's different almost everyday. The room is not big enough but it's just nice for 2 pax. All basic facilities are available (e.g. Hair dryer, TV, heater on floor, air-cond, traveller adapter, hot shower) This was the first time we travelled to Korea. Whenever we need help and suggestion on the place to visit, food to eat, the owner Mr. lee is able to give some really nice and useful guidance and suggestion. Besides, I must say the owner is helpful enough. I realized I left an bracelet in the hotel after leaving Korea. The owner reply is prompted and help me ship to my country. There's nothing more to complain about and I really feel like home staying with Haemil.

            Haemil Guesthouse was very comfortable especially you have a tiring trip, they provide good quality of mattress and pillow. It has the home feeling where the owners will greet you personally and guide you during your trip. Their home cooked breakfast were very yummy and delicious. The only drawback is the distance to subway, even though is walking distance, but you will feel far after full day of walking in seoul city. Overall, we enjoyed a lot during our stayed there.

            Great little room near Hongdae. Lots of little shops and eateries to explore around this place. Small room, but it's clean and has a comfy bed. I will say my room had the floor/hot water gas heater in a closet that provided heat to the whole floor. I'm sensitive to noise when I'm trying to sleep and when it started up it had a bit of a rattle that was kinda annoying. But most people probably wouldn't be bothered by it. And not every room has the heater closet.

            The guest house is located about 10 minutes walk from Hondae station, but since it is Airport train side, if you walk from other lines, it takes more. It was not short distance especially when you carried suitcase, but there are nice cafe, bar restaurants are around. Convenience store and bus stop are close by. As the price was really cheap, I do not complain but if you are pretty strict on cleanliness, I cannot say it is the perfect place to stay. There is no partition between shower and toilet. The owner is friendly and helpful :)
