The room doesn't have a shower and an outside window in it.
The rooms are small. These are usually for people who live very simply not requiring bigger space. We are located near Seocho station, subway line No. 2.
You should share the shower, if you use a room without shower.
There are many law firms in Seocho, as there are supreme court, prosecutors’ office, courts in Seocho. Art center, the biggest one in Korea, and National Library is near our building. You can walk to Han River. It takes about 20-25 minutes. You can take a bus to Han River and it takes 5-10 minutes.
You can go to anywhere in Seoul using the subway system. Seocho subway station is one minute from the building. You can go to Itaewon using bus 740 at exit number 7 of Seocho station.
You can use the followings free of charge: Internet, cooked rice, Korean soup, Kimchi, shared washing machine and detergent, cooking tools, gas, utility bills, a tv, a small fridge, water purifier, micro wave
You can use WiFi.
Jinwoo goes above and beyond the call of duty. So friendly, so helpful. It's true the accommodations are humble, but for $15 a night you should be to.
I thought the room was well worth the price. Cant beat it for the price. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was warm and perfect for the winter/ well-heated. You know--walking down the hall to use the shower and or bathroom is what you get for booking a dormitory-style place. They are slippers provided. A full kitchen with water cooler. It is only a couple blocks from the train.
One thing I had difficulty with was locating it when I got there. The sign is like on the third floor of the building--so it is up high ---and it is actually a vertical digital sign with moving text thats has the name of the place. So look up high for a vertical digital sign and enter---check in is on the fourth floor.
Staying at the elivingtel was pretty good, even if the rooms are quite small, it perfectly fits tall people...
It was cosy and very relaxing, although it's a hotel, it was pretty quiet and I didn't see many people around surprisingly. So if you plan to stay in Seoul near a subway station, in a nice neighbourhood full of restaurant and convenience store, I'd recommend to stay at the Elivingtel !!!
And most of all, they are bike friendly !!!
You cannot dream of a better host, Jinwoo is a great person. My stay in Seoul was successful thank to his advices and also the community that lives there.
Please go there if you are going to Seoul.
The private room was nice and worth the given price. But the location is nice, nearby the bus terminal and just a distance from subway station
I was very happy with this place and found that it was a very positive addition to my trip. There was some adjustment - for example the showers were individual stalls in a co-ed bathroom, and the washer-drier didn't use any hot water. At the same time, people were completely stunned that I was getting a room in the Gangnam area (Soecho, to be precise) for such a low rate. The room provided a terrific home base for my travels in Seoul, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The host has excellent English and was always very friendly and easy to get in touch with. We even shared a beer!
- Location is really close by subway station
- room size is perfect for 1 person, fairy clean
- air condition temperature is good, but you can't adjust yourself
- fuzzy wifi at night
- pillow & blanket were ok.... but i would prefer bring my own next time
- can't complain for its price
- would visit again
it is a good place to stay, also near to gangnam
My purpose was to find a basic place with reliable internet where I could sleep for 3 nights. I liked how it was less than a 5 minute walk to the subway station and that the room was exactly as described so for the price, I had no problems with it... however, if you're picky or looking for a luxurious accomodation, then perhaps you should book a hotel room at a proper hotel. The top floors have mostly foreign occupants and the room that I stayed in was relatively quiet.
The room is exactly as advertised. It is a very small room, but it's private and you have access to rice, laundry, internet, etc. The bed was nice and long, suitable for a tall person (I'm 183 cm and had a little room to spare). All told, I found the place to be a great value, but I could see it not being for everyone. If you value some open space more than privacy, you'd probably be better off in a dorm somewhere.
The one complaint is that the walls are very thin. The majority of people staying here are quiet, but if you're a light sleeper then plan on being woken up most nights.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
