  • The location is wonderful, with Insadong at it's doorstep, there are countless eatery options. The convenient location of the airport limousine bus stop and the metro station made it easy to get around. Although the studio was cosy, it was well-equipped. There was even a cordless vacuum cleaner for cleaning up our mess after eating snacks!

    Jack and Yongsun were wonderful hosts and replied my queries rapidly on both airbnb website and via whatsapp when we were in Seoul. Yongsun even went through the trouble to help me find out informations from websites that are in Korean.

    We could not have found better hosts or living quarters, and are so glad we chose this. If we return to Seoul for another holiday, we will undoubtedly stay here again.

  • Jack and Youngsun provided an excellent experience in Insadong. I have been to Korea several times and this experience was the most thoroughly organized organized and conscientious. That's the highest praise I can provide for a host in a country that knows how to host. The location of this unit and the others I stayed in are perfect for a tourist, business person, or weary traveler.

    The units were comfortable, well-appointed, with English directions for all appliances. Instructions for finding the building and entry were PDF'd to me with changes that were specific to my circumstances. Goodies and refreshments were provided and the response time by both was immediate.

    I would definitely seek out Jack again to stay in Seoul.

  • Jack is an excllent host. He replies quickly and is helpful. He was even thoughtful enough to write us a christmas card when we stayed over christmas! Gestures like that show commitment to providing quality service.
    The apartment itself is cozy without being too small. Everything is spotlessly clean and well taken care of. Location is fantastic, being connected to the subway station.
    I would definitely recommend this.

  • Great apartment + Excellent host = Memorable stay.

    The apartment is very cozy and well equipped. It is also in a prime location, situated just above Anguk metro station with convenience stores, coffee places nearby.

    Jack is an awesome host. He is more than just friendly and thoughtful. I felt very safe and comfortable with him as my host.

  • Jack and Yongsun are the perfect hosts, extremely professional, genuine and helpful. They are always available on Kakaotalk (korean version of whatsapp) and responds quickly to any questions I may have. The apartment is cozy, clean and has a great view with mountains in the backdrop. Location wise, it is also very convenient with the subway station just below the apartment. This is useful for korean winters when you don't want to be out walking too much when temperature drops below zero. I've stayed in several airbnb places before in various countries, and could say this apartment is a good combination of coziness, cleanliness, location and helpful hosts who make you feel well taken care of in a foreign land.

  • This was a great, very cute apartment. It is on the cozier side, but it's very well appointed and has everything you need from a washing machine/dryer to air conditioning and heating. The location is excellent if you're visiting Seoul. It's right in the heart of many of the tourist attractions, palaces, and temples, and just a short walk to the traditional streets of Insadong. Great stay! Jack was very easy to communicate with and very helpful with our questions. Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again.

    November 2013
  • It was a wonderful stay at Jack's apartment, it was clean and well kept. Jack was very helpful and prompt with additional requests. Location was great being so near to Insadong and Anguk station. Definitely recommended!

  • We stayed here for 6 days in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The most positive thing is the location of the apartment. You can easily spend 3-4 days visiting cultural sites by just walking to them. The kitchen was very useful and well equipped. The only main negative points at night the traffic and proximity to police station causes a nuisance. The washing machine instruction if provided in English would be helpful too.

    October 2013
  • Jack's place was great! And he was so helpful with any questions we had. The apartment is kept super clean and is in a great area with lots of cafes. Would stay here again. :)

  • Very central location in Seoul. I had a great stay in Jack's place.

About
I manage a private institute and also teach mathematics there. I love travelling, meeting new people, and exploring other cultures. I've been to the US, many European countries, Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and so on, and was able to gain invaluable experience in those countries. While staying on Airbnb in Barcelona and Taipei, I found that Airbnb could be one of the best ways to meet new friends from around the world. Such comfy stay and heartwarming hospitality from the hosts encouraged me to do the same on Airbnb in Seoul as well. I'm ready to help my guests build up their memorable experience in Seoul and sincerely looking forward to hosting you. Welcome to Seoul!
