Do you want to have great stay, Don't look further. I had great time staying at hongdae sky guest house. The host was amazing and the place was wonderful.
The apartment was as per described by owner's page and it came out exactly as what she said. The apartment is really pretty with all the amenities and facilities needed. However, that is all for the good things I enjoyed in booking this apartment.
I was very disappointed and regretted in booking the apartment.
1. The place is not really that easy to reach if you are dragging a luggage with you. There is quite a long diatance with steps and rough roads to drag your luggage.
2. Owner seems to be always busy. Replies and responses are slow.
It comes to a bad point when I needed to check in which I've informed earlier about the time but no response from her on that day. So I ended up spamming her with messages from my starting destination till I reach hongdae. And so we managed to check in about 30mins to 1 hour later.
3. Communication issue with owner. The owner is quite nice when we met her as she apologised for her latesness but if you do not know korean lang at all, speaking to her is quite difficult. First, I asked for directions to her place which she only sent pictures and maps but there was no signage near the place to tell you that you are at the right place. So I ended up circling the same area 3 or 4 times.
Second, I told owner my check in time and she told me to go to the apartment directly. However, she did not even make it that timing and the room is lock. So you have to wait for her to reach to open the door and give you the guidelines. Lastly, my most vexing part. I needed a place to keep my luggage till late 8pm which the owner agreed to settle that part for us before I decided to book her place. Her msg in airbnb inbox was: 'if there is guest, you need to leave at 12pm. But I can keep your luggage.' So it seems agreeable. However, on the actual day, she demanded us to either take our luggage and leave by 6pm or place them at her house which will cost us taxi fare to travel down. I understand that there may be guest who wants to stay the place as well but I believe she should have made it clear in the first place that she is unable to settle the luggage and not giving empty promises. Anyway, from her understanding, her message actually meant she can keep the luggage till 12pm but we have to leave if there is guest. This is so vexing as her explanation meant totally different from her message.
Owner has good personality but the circumstances of communicating and getting actual information is quite taxing as you might end up nit getting what you were promised for.
Hello.. Thank you so much your comment.
I am sorry if you felt discomfort.
First day, I want pick you up at the subway station, but you want to come here by directly coz you want to check in more early. That time I was cleaning the house.
When you reached nearby at my house, we didn't contact easily , coz, your phone didn't contact wifi.. I sent message and called but no reply..So I waiteed your message for a long time, finally I went out to find you after lock my house. Finially we met at the Lotteria restaurant very close at my house. you said it doesn't open wifi, so can't send message to me. I remembered when we met we shared greeting well and thank each other.
You stayed only one night with your friend at my house, and I offer to you put your luggages for 7hours longer.
but I said to you if there will be who check in guests then you need to leave more early. We promised it. Once i didn't accept other inquire coz the guests want to check in on time (2pm), but there were your luggages in my house, So I didn't accept it. But later other one inquired booking my house, She aggreed with me more late check in. I offer to you 7hours more keeping luggages as a free. I didn't inquire add charge for keeping your luggages even though you stayed one night.
It doesn't matter how long stay at my house. but important thing is you are my guests. so I offer to you much time for keeping your luggages.
But you want to stay your luggages more long time, when you called that day.
I said only can't no more.. coz who will be check in.
I just said to you If you want to keeping your luggages more longer, then come to my house, I can keep your luggages. but you don't want and checked out 6pm. I think I did my best to you, but it was not enough..to you.
Come here again, next time we can have a more nice time.
I can do my best to you ..Thanks a lot for staying my house. Please relieve your feelings. And thank you said to me "The apartment is very pretty and comfortable." by secreat feedback . I know it is your mind to me.
I hope to share more thing.. later^^.
The host was very accommodating- I was running late but she was understanding and provided me with all the necessary information to find the place. It was really nice and right off of the Main Street in Hongdae. I had everything I needed within walking distance and the place felt very safe. Would definitely recommend this listing to others!
The location is prefect. Just take 5mins walk to the station. Bars, restaurants n clubs are in this area. It was a pleasant during the stay. Thank you for your hospitality, Ms Min! :)
Host is nice and helpful.
Apartment was smaller than expected. But it was quiet even it is in the middle of many cafes & restaurants. Perfect place for eating all kinds of food with short walk.
Young Hyeon is a warm and kind woman and she helps a lot when we were in Korea.
We stayed 4 nights at Hongdae Sky guest house. The host picked us up from the station as she promised and took us to the apartment . She carefully explained in appliances usage and walked me to show the market and the nearest MRT station
The location is in the college area, full of young students and plenty of food outlets
Getting around by bus and MRT was easy and efficient. There is a tourist boot nearby where we got information about the city bus tour
The apartment was quiet even it is in the midst of many cafe
The apartment was clean and cosy with enough provision.
I sure would recommend any one to stay in it
