We had a pleasant stay at the guesthouse as the convenience store and shuttle bus is within walking distance. On our first day we reached the place later than the agreed time due to some problems met in the prior place,Kang still managed to accommodate to our timing and drove us to the guesthouse from Chungjeongno station. We were with our luggages. Wifi egg was provided too upon request. All in all, I would say Kang is a good host and fast in responding to requests.
Kang is very helpful. The map he provided is written very detaily.
The local restaurants near the apartment are very nice and the price is reasonable.
I had a great time at Kang place. He even gladly accept to extend my time in a different Apartment for a couple more. I overslept the day I was supposed to leave, he gladly gave me some extra time to get my stuff together. I have to publicly apologizes for that. Thank you very much Kang
We had a great experience by having Kang as our host for our first airbnb booking. He even picked us up at Seoul Station at 11 pm! Very personable, the apartment was as described in the listing, and the detailed directions and list of what's near is perfect for English speaking tourists. I also liked his instant booking feature as this was a last minute trip. Thanks Kang!
Kang was extremely helpful! His directions were spot on and he provided us a map of the town. He picked us up as promised from the train station and showed us some local places on route to the apartment!! I definitely recommend!!
Kang was extremely helpful and accommodating when we arrived in Seoul. His instructions from the airport were correct, and he met us and picked us up to take us to the apartment. The apartment was simple, and no-frills and a great value. It was situated within a neighborhood near some local shops and restaurants which Kang directed us to his favorites. It was a true Seoul experience. We were a fifteen minute walk from the subway station which made things very convenient. Kang furnished an instruction sheet in Korean should we needed to take a taxi back to the apartment after a long day of sightseeing. This was extremely helpful and always got us back without any issues. Kang also provided a portable wi-fi device which we carried with us while out and about. This was a great thing which allowed us to contact him as we needed weather it was recommendations while at a certain district in Seoul, or a place to eat, or just general questions we had about the city. The apartment was a welcomed sight at the end of each day, and Kang was an excellent host.
Kang was a fantastic host! He picked us up from the nearest subway station and drove us up he steep hill that leads to his apartment. He even gave us an extra room to use as he had one available, giving my group of 4 lots of extra space!
The beds were comfortable and the amenities were great. It's also a great location and only a short downhill walk to the closest station. There are free shuttle busses that take you back up the hill, you just need to have been on the subway first. If you're riding the shuttle bus to get to the subway or riding it back without having been in the subway, it only costs 750 wons.
Be prepared to walk up 3 flights of stairs as there are no elevators in the building.
Kang even drive us back down to the subway station when we checked out. We would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Seoul. It is very central and close to all the highlights of the city.

I am a Korean guy from Seoul who is working for pyrotechnic company.
I have been with airbnb for 2 years. super exciting to know this kind of community. I make my best effort to make my guests happy and try to help them in whatever way they might need. I can't thank to airbnb more for allowing us to connect with wonderful people around the globe.
