Kang is an Excellent host, provided very detailed instructions on how to meet him for the key handoff and he even picked me up from the subway station! A+ service all the way. The apartment was cozy and the bed comfortable. Everything was clean and functioned well!
I love how close this location was to everything I needed to get to and that it is in truly one of the disappearing neighborhoods of Seoul that have the "old Seoul" charm I was looking for!
Kang waited for me at the stop and was gracious when I missed the stop and had to find my way back. The residence is up a hill a bit, but there is a bus that you can take that drops you off a minute's walk from the door. All in all, a good, cheap place to stay -- not too far from a subway stop, so it's easy to get around.
Great host, clean place, good (email hidden)rely i will go back next time!
only little problem...the hot water is not hot enough.
Kangs apartment was comfortable, clean, and had just the right amount of space for me. The apartment is located practically in the center of seoul. It's just a little walk away from chunjeongro station which was very convenient. There's also a little market right up that street that stays open quite late. When I first arrived in the area I got off at the wrong stop and Kang waited and searched for me until he was able to get me to his place safely. All in all the room was great and so is Kang.
Great host ! - picked us up at bus station on arrival and send us off to train station on departure. Prompt replies on our queries.
Great location ! - Quite central to most tourist area (most are within a few stations away). The apartment itself is walking distance to train station. Bakery & convenience store located nearby is a plus.
Apartment - cosy and warm thanks to floor heating. Hot water available.
Overall we enjoyed our 10days stay there. Highly reccomended!!!
