The location could not be better. Ideal does not describe it. You can walk anywhere and explore some of the most interesting neighborhoods for tourists without ever needing a bus, subway or taxi. Very clean with everything you need, including English explanations on how to use anything in the apartment! You could even cook a meal if you were so inclined. The room is rather small in case you are not familiar with Asian living, but after all you want to explore Seoul and not stay at home. The instructions on how to get there were the best and most useful on airbnb ever, be sure to take the airport bus he suggests and you get off right in front of the building.
Jack's studio is a perfect base for exploring Seoul. Close proximity to major touristy spots such as the Palaces, Bukchon, Insadong, Samcheodong and many more. It's also coveniently located right above Anguk station. Limo bus to and from the airport basically stops at the apartment's door step. You will also find the studio quite spacious, neat and clean. Jack is also a great host, responsive and communicative. I highly appreciate host(s) who provided a detailed instructions and information for smooth arrival and convenient stays. Double appreciation for providing English text in all of the electronic appliances. Super helpful! All in all, I had a pleasant stay and would not hesitate to return.
Great location. Airport bus 6011 stops right in front of the apartment. The apartment is above the anguk metro station which makes it very convenient. Walking distance to bukchon, insadong and palaces. Jack and yongsun were very helpful and responsive to our queries. Room is very clean and comfortable. Fast wifi connection. Washing machine was very easy use (instructions in english are provided for easy usage). Washroom has bidet. Will definitely recommend this place. Cant wait to be back!
Jack gave me excellent directions from the airport to his apartment. Although I was met at the airport I feel certain I could have made it solo! The apartment was very clean and tidy with a lot of handy info on how things worked (i.e. how to turn the hot water on)! There is a good view over Anguk, which is a perfect spot from Seoul.
In short I'd stay there again,
Beautiful space with everything you need for an extended stay. Delighted to have found coffee, tea, cookies, ramen, and cold drinks waiting in the fridge. Firm, cozy bed that could make it hard to get out and explore the city. Nice view of the surrounding area, although photos were slightly hindered by dirty windows. Located only a minute's walk from Anguk subway and Insadong--a street with tchotchkes aplenty.
Straight forward getting in; quite pleasant for my first stay with AirBnb.
My stay at Jack's place was EXCELLENT! He provided me with very clear instructions with getting to the studio apartment, how to get into the place, places of interest nearby, etc. Very detailed! His assistant, Yongsun, was EXTREMELY helpful! I messaged him on Kakaotalk to ask for assistance and he replied very promptly. I didn't have an international adapter with me and he brought one for me the very next morning! I really appreciate your help!
About the apartment.. it is exactly as pictured. Very good size and comfort was top notch. The unit is maintained very well and very clean. Instant coffee, tea was provided with biscuits; so was bottled water and a can of soft drink. Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash were provided as well. There was also clear instructions on the table explaining how to use all the electronic items in the unit such as the air conditioner, water heater, laundry machine, etc.
Location was perfect too. Right on top of Anguk subway station, which connects you to the whole of Seoul. The airport limousine bus drops you right in front of the apartment building as well so no worries about getting lost! Not only that, we're right next to the police station so what's safer than that! :)
Conclusion: EXTREMELY IMPRESSED! Would choose to stay here again if I came back to Seoul. Value for Money is 10/10!
I am a regular guest of Jack/Yongsun whenever I visit Seoul .This time I travelled with my parents and aunt to Seoul and Busan for 8 full days .
For accommodation in Seoul , I booked 3 guesthouses in the same building (SK hub) .
The reason I chose to book with Jack /Yongsun is because of 1. trust 2. customer service & promptness and 3. Location
Regardless if you are a single lady traveler or couple or travelers with family (kids or elderly) , you should definitely book with Jack/Yongsun & stay at SK hub!

About the Host, Jack
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!
