You can directly come to 'Achasan station' from Inceon International airport.
And very Easy to find our place from subway station.
You can go back to Inceon Airport by Limousine bus at 'Gunja' station which is one station from Achasan station and 15minute by walk from our place. It takes 1hour to get to Airport which is pretty fast way to get to Airport.
- Bathroom has to be shared with family.
Nice place and close to the subway, very easy to find. Haedong and his uncle are very welcoming.
What can I say? This experience has been fantastic! Haedong and his family are very nice people. His uncle's house is very clean and the room you are going to sleep in large and comfortable! The internet connection, as mentioned by other users before, is extremely fast.
Achasan is a fast gate to all the city area, since line number 5 crosses all the others in a couple of stops.
Unfortunately, the day before leaving, I caught a cold but Haedong did his best to help me. I'll never forget this.
If I went again to Seoul, I'd surely stay there again.
If you want to stay in a Korean environment, mix with Koreans and get to know more about Korean lifestyle, this is the place to be. However, it's not suitable for honeymoons or romantic getaway.
It is located in Gwanjinku area which is close to the children park and also very convenient to travel other seoul area. Most importantly, it is close to Achasan Station(line no.5) as well as bus stop. Haedong was very helpful, and it is great to stay for this price.
Room: it was huge and completely isolated, so very good secure privacy. There is a fridge, TV and a big window.
Haedong was extremely helpful in making sure that a lost and overwhelmed tourist gets into his place, and made sure I was all warm and nice. He also lent me a bag since mine was stuck in the airport. His uncle was also so friendly and nice, and even made me sweet potatoes one morning.
Once you know how to get around, the place is really convenient. Thanks Haedong!
The hosts, both Haedong and Uncle, were extremely helpful and friendly. My friend check in earlier and Uncle took good care of her, even cooked for her.
Location was easily accessible and the subway is very near to lodging. Travelling to other parts of Seoul is very convenient.
Uncle gave us full privacy within the room we stayed, appreciated that. However, for those who are adverse to smoking might need to reconsider this place.
My sister and me stayed with Haedong's uncle about 1 week, it was really our pleasant time to stay in this place. Haedong and his uncle, also their family are so kind, polite, friendly and prompt for helping and taking care of us during our stay.
Haedong's guesthouse is easy to access, not far from Achasan station (purple line subway), just only 3 minutes walk from station. And not far from the guesthouse, we could find good restaurant, market and also conveniences stores.
The room is clean and big enough for us, well furnished with large TV, Refrigerator, Air conditioner, Coffee pot, Toaster etc.
So next time if we will visit Seoul, we are definitely sure that we will be here again.
Haedong and his family were so helpful, friendly and loving. I spent a week at this place and it started my Seoul trip on a high note. Haedong's mum and uncle treated me like family and it made my stay feel very homely. I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere here and really hoped I could have stayed longer.
The room is what it seems in the pictures and much more spacious when inside. It felt very homely, yet private because the room was on the other side of the house. There is heating which is great especially in this winter time. Everything was included in the room like it was a hotel from adapters, toiletries, tea, a refrigerator etc. Wifi was very fast and there is great coverage.
The location of the place is very close to the Children's Grand park with many markets and restaurants. It is quite easy to navigate to and from the station and is definitely a bargain. Honestly, I thought this place was the best decision if you want quality with affordability. Will stay again if I ever come back to Seoul! :)
Staying over at Haedong's apartment was very pleasant. I had a great time. The room is spacious and very clean and the host was helpful and kind. The bed was large, even for Dutch standards and there is even a (good!) TV and refrigerator in the room. Something that should not be overlooked is that the room I slept in seemed to be in the opposite corner of the house, so it felt very much like my own place. It was quiet at night and kept warm, because it was becoming cold in the winter. It felt better than the best hotel I have slept in, but it was way cheaper. I would most definitely come back if I were ever in Seoul again. Not only because the room was so great, but also because me and my girlfriend got a very warm welcome and felt at home instantly. Whether you want to experience the life of a Korean family or you want to be left alone, you can get both if you stay at Haedong's apartment.
The neighborhood was also nice. It had all the conveniences of the big city, a large park nearby (with a zoo!), some great Korean and non-Korean restaurants nearby, fruit stands and convenience stores were just around the corner as well as the subway.
In summary (or TL:DR), stay at Haedong's apartment if you want to have a comfortable and cheap stay in Seoul. And don't let the low costs fool you, it is nothing short of a 5 out of 5 stars stay!
Funtastic Host and Excellent Room!
Everything which is listed in the amenities are available for us. The best thing is that we find ourselves a 2nd family with Haedong's family. Their hospitality were sincere from the heart. Haedong was with me through the night when I had to be taken to the hospital on our 2nd day staying there. Also included is Haedong's uncle who were very nice and caring for us.
For me and my wife the greatest part of this place is the price and Haedong family's attitude as a host.
The location is strategic, easy to go places since its nearby the subway station, lots of food stall and 24/7 groceries nearby, since the rent price is cheap you could save more to buy your relatives gifts etc.
Haedong's mother was very kind to give me a cake, since I was not feeling well by the time I was staying there. Also Haedong's sister who came and gave us some snack bars.
I know that I'm missing something about how awesome this place was, nevertheless I hope this review will shine enough to convince anybody that I would have paid even more for this place.
This place will be my first option again if I come back to Seoul. Highly recommended for all travelers!!
