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 1970s 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

Are you thinking about a minimal but comfortable dorm bed at V Mansion? We hope to completely change your preconception of what dorm living is like! Our 5 person dorm room has 5 single beds, two of which are lofted and hung from the ceiling. In V’s dorm room, you will have a very cozy and personal space, while also being able to enjoy the pleasures of the large common space right outside your door. Now, it’s time to come and check it out!

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.
