Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The room was great, and it was correct with the description. Also rice and soup free of charge all the time was nice.

    The area was okey. Its 2 stations away from Gangnam, so its close. the rest of "the good stations" is about 20mins away.
    There is Nothing too do at nigh in this area, but a few resturants too eat during day. There is also a conviniten store right next to the hous open 24/7.

    Jinwoo was a great guy that help out with anny questions we hade, and also recomended good places too eat in the area. Really nice guy.

    The only bad things was the shower and toilets that really felt like publik bathrooms. And it was super cold in there too, so taking a shower was a pain. Also, the peopels that livd there seamd really unfriendly haha, never saying hello, and even steeling my friends shampoo, haha but thats not the host's problem i guess haha. Also i got a really dirty pillow, but i can sleep without a pillow, so no prob for me.

    But overall, it was great. And I can recomend it for anny one needin a cheep place in Seoul.

  • As is clearly explained in the description of the room.. it is small. But I did not have a problem with that at all. It was fairly clean, and the noise level was low (unless someone in the hallway was stomping noisily or the person next to me just entered or left his/her room). Shower was good, bathroom was... well... like all shared bathrooms. I made it a point to be out very often, so I cannot really comment on what it is like to actually be in the room for long periods of time. Great location, very close to line 2 and every other subway line can be reached from line 2, so it was very convenient. Close to bus stops (if you know how to use the bus system, this is handy). So overall, I enjoyed my stay.

  • The Accommodation:
    Very inexpensive rooms. You get what you pay for as far as accommodation i.e. small private rooms, thin walls, shared bathrooms. The location is fabulous, close to transportation, with plenty of convos, food etc etc.

    The Management:
    The highlight of this accommodation is the owner, Jinwoo. He is truly accommodating. I enjoyed my conversations with him, to the point where I consider him a good friend.

    Recommended to anyone looking for affordable accommodation in the city with reasonable expectations. I had a great stay.

  • I was very happy staying in Gangnam at Mr. Jang's guest house. It was exactly what the advertisement promised --- very small but totally functional & inexpensive rooms. The location is good, too, and it was easy to navigate there from the airport by following the directions in the ad (it's about a 5 minute walk from the "SeoCho" station ). There are about a 100+ restaurants in the immediate vicinity. No complaints! --- I would stay there again

  • The dirctions from Airport are very simple to follow, the location is convenient, the host is attentive to your needs. Living within a budget, these rooms are sufficient for anyone who can live without the finer things offered in traditional hotel settings. My limit for this type of shoestring lving was 4 days.

  • Very basic but very good if you're on a budget. Convenient location, good privacy, and good soup.

  • It took a little to get used to the tiny private room, but i like it somehow in the end. I loved the kimchi in the kitchen which really enjoyed. The location is super convenient by sitting right next to a subway station and help make my days of exploring of Seoul with an easy start.

    The best is Jinwoo, the host: a very kind and true Korean gentleman. I got a lot of luggage but he help me when I arrived and when I went to the bus station to leave. He even let me borrow a jacket because it was cold and rode with me on a bus to the Banpo bridge by the Han river the night I came. I did not see him much during my stay but I appreciated the kindness and warm. I will stay there again next time.

  • I stay here for 3 weeks it is the best for me cause we have a kitchen and rice for free all time
