The Space

Hi, I'm Jihye, hosting guests at V Mansion.

I welcome both individual and group travelers. The guesthouse is also very open to hosting a range of community gatherings such as workshops, parties and local meetings. This beautifully renovated house retains much of its original character but with modern amenities. Located between the artistic area of Hongdae and the Han River and only a few minutes walk from the subway station, the guesthouse is perfectly situated for our guests to enjoy vibrant Seoul street life, the artistic Hongdae underground scene and the serenity of nature and the outdoors just steps away from the river.

1. Room
It is actually a sequence of two rooms connected by an open doorway that accommodates three to four people. It has one double bed and one single bed in one space and one bed in the other. A hand-made bunk bed occupies one space and is adjacent to the private showers and toilet room. The first space faces the front terrace and you must walk through the other space to access the private showers and toilet. If you want to have a special time with your family or your closest friends, this room would suit you well!

2. Common Use Space
At the end of an exhausting day we like to gather in our cozy living room to rest, play and enjoy each other’s company. In this central public space for living, dining, lounging and exchanging ideas you will find music, books and local artifacts and art from the surrounding neighborhood, Seoul and Korea. Sometimes we gather to watch films using our big screen and projector. Our friends and neighbors often come by and leisurely engage in conversion with our guests in this common space or in our fantastic front garden.
The kitchen is centered around a hand-made Ireland table that not only serves up delicious food on a daily basis, but also delicious conversation! You can cook with local ingredients and try your hand at mastering Korean cuisine or you can whip up your own local dishes to remind yourself of home (and maybe introduce it to others in the house!) The kitchen and common space bleed together to form one dynamic and continuous living area. As you make your way up the stairway to the second floor will be met by original art work from a Hongdae artist. At the top of the stair you are greeted by our HUGE terrace that wraps around the house, giving panoramic views of the surrounding area.

  • V Mansion is a special place. This is the place to book if you are looking to meet interesting people from all around the world, hang out with fun hosts, and have a great time in the exciting Hongdae artisy/student district. The house is right along the river and is a comfortable and laid back environment. It's a place that encourages conversation, collaboration and creativity.

    That being said, the home could use some updates. The double room was a little on the cold side and could use a fresh coat of paint, maybe a deep clean. There is no "private garden" with this room anymore, as it's been left to the elements. However, it is by no means unlivable and, though it's not quite as pictured, I was comfortable and had a good time. Just manage your expectations, focus on the plus sides of staying in such a unique space, and have a once in a lifetime experience in Hongdae.

I'm running a guest house and community space in Seoul as well, you can stay in my place, I welcome you! It would be great to discover Seoul and attractive people in Seoul. I want to be the very original bridge between people. I love animal and (email hidden)l about natural things. Hope to be in peace and harmony ;)
