Room was clean and spacious, in a safe neighbourhood. walking distance to the train station, and not too far away from the city centre. Friendly managers who waited and opened the door for us even though we arrived quite late at night. Beds were comfortable, and spacious enough for 2. Quiet and no hassle check in and out.

It is our fourth time in Studio 41st Hostel, and it became like a little home abroad. The new team is doing a good job. Rooms are clean and equipped with everything one needs while traveling far from home. The common ( breakfast ) room is very communicative and like a living room where one can meet people from whole...

We spent 5 nights here. The location is not too far nor near the subway station. The staffs are friendly and kind. A very homely environment. This hostel does not have lifts, so if you're carry heavy and bulky luggages, be prepared to climb up the stairs. It has a total of four storeys. I had bulky and heavy luggage,...

Staying in Hongdae

Neighbourhood Profile
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
