We treat you as a family member. We are having parties at a cart bar on looftop every weekend. You must be enjoyed real Korean's culture.
We had a lot of fun staying at the Ultari house, and I only wish we could stay longer. The place is cozy, clean, easy to find and very conveniently located: right in the midst of Hongdae district of Seoul and only a short subway ride to anything else you want to visit in the city. Another benefit: Hongik University station is a direct line to the ICN airport, so it is very easy to get in and out of Seoul. There are three rooms in the house with one shared bathroom and kitchen. We really liked the people we were sharing the house with.
K was an awesome host: always eager to help, quick to respond, and provided great recommendations!
Allen was an awesome host. He really cares about the visitors and will always help you when you are facing an issue like ordering food for you when you are sick... :)
The guesthouse is really well located : 3 minutes by walk from the subway station, surrounded by restaurants, bars and close to nightclubs. The neighborhood is dynamic, young and in the city center.
The price is really low but the quality is good, don't worry about that. The house was clean and Allen provides you everything you need : food, water cold/hot, towels, information about Seoul...
You can really feel like at home so don't hesitate, you won't regret it !
This is a home away from home! We will surely go back.
Location is good and Allen is a responsible guy to pick up the guests. For young traveller looking for cheap stay, you could consider Ultrai House.
This is my first hostel experience and it was an awesome one. Allen was really helpful and thoughtful in making the stay as comfortable as you can be. You would not regret getting to know a guy like Allen. Your trip will be enriched so much more with a stay there. Also, Allen is a great Ski instructor! It took me jus over an hour to grasp the basic with him teaching so do ask him about skiing if you are keen on it too. Go on and stay in ultari house 1 or 2 ^^
Ultrai House, as stated, is very near to Hongik Univ Station. Our host, Allen sent us a getting there map prior to our trip which made it easy for my friends and I to locate the place. We were delighted that we don't have tow heavy luggages for more than 5 minutes haha.
Allen is a really nice and friendly guy! He took the time to share with us some basic ski tips when he knew our upcoming package did not come with free guide. Also, there are snacks provided that are really yummy! We feel at home staying at Ultrai House.
We were really well taken care of during our one day stay in Ultrai House and we will definitely be back here for our next Seoul trip! :) Thanks Allen and see you soon hopefully!
Arrived in Seoul on 22nd night(a day earlier, near to midnight) and arrived at Ultari 2(because was full) on the 1st day. despite the cold weather, Allen waited for me near the exit but I've arrived because I took a cab(subway service ended).
K was present and was welcomed warmly. Showed around the house and it was definitely a place that you'll feel homely and cosy once you're there.
Allen transferred me to Ultari 1 the next day, drove me over and showed me around the house as well. Love both Ultari houses!
Ultari at hongdae/hongik is very very near to the subway, probably 5 mins or less to walk over. Lots of food places, daiso & 7-11 are just around the corner, shopping and drinking places like pubs or clubs are all around the area too. Convenience is definitely with you when you're there.
There's subway straight from the airport to Ultari as well.
Not to mention traveling to other places via the subway is relatively near.
Breakfast, toiletries(like shampoo and body wash), towel are provided as well as stated in the description.
Allen and K takes care of their Ultari family members very well. You don't know or need anything, you can just approach them. They will be more than willing to assist.
They are easily reachable, don't have to worry about getting lost in Seoul. :d
Overall experience stay and travel is AWESOME:)
Stay here and you will definitely Love it too!
Thank you Allen & K :)
Miss you guys already!
Loved staying here! Great host, great location, and great guests! Host was very friendly and accommodating!
Awesome place, very cozy and nice!
Staying in ultari house was one of the memorable experiences I have in seoul! It's a very cohesive household where individual travellers come together to mingle and socialize. Allen is a great host and the location of ultari house is in the middle of hongkik shopping street. Clubs are around the corner and the general crowd are young and lively students. The house is like family and there was one time all of us just stayed in the living room chit chatting drinking an watching korea dramas (the heirs). a shout out to my friends whom I get to know and keep in contact via (website hidden)/kakao: it was fun meeting you all! Hope to cya around in Asia sometime!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
