In short, this was a reasonably priced place in a great location. Another review of this place said that you'll become part of a family, this is not precisely the case. You don't even live with the person who owns the listing, she and her family live in another apartment on a different floor. The person living in the apartment is the mother of the host mom listed at this place, and she was very nice and helpful for the most part. So was Kyoung-Hee! Everyone was flexible when there was a problem. For example, when I first came, my room didn't have any air conditioning, and the one in the apartment was broken. But noticing that I had a difficult time making it through the extreme Korean summer heat, they installed an AC in my room (and asked me to contribute $50 for it, which isn't an excruciating sum).
If you are overtly caring about privacy or cleanliness, there are certain things about this place you might want to consider. The room I rented was adjacent to a storage area, and quite a few times I noticed that someone had walked through my room to access it, which some might find a little uncomfortable. I'm sure this would have been possible to change had I said something about it, but it didn't bother me that much. The walls are also quite thin so you will hear a lot of the activity in the rest of the apartment, which sometimes might be difficult if you are a light sleeper. Certain parts of the apartment were quite dirty, but the room itself was generally clean so this isn't necessarily a big issue either.
However, I know the market and the city fairly well, and I'm quite sure that you wouldn't find a better place at this price level and in this part of the city. It is extremely centrally located, the price is relatively cheap compared to most options, and your hosts are very helpful should you need anything. If you're looking for more of a sociable and immersive cultural experience you might want to look into regular "Homestay" as well, but for the purpose of being in Seoul for any period of time -- short or long -- this is a convenient place for a fair price.
