For our second guesthouse, we stayed at Kpopstay Guesthouse near Hongdae and just walking distance from Hongik University. You might be wondering why transfer from one place to another. I would like to think it’s strategic since our planned itinerary is also in those areas, and we can explore the place whenever we want and just a walking distance to Hongdae, where night life is just around the corner. Kpopstay is located to a more quiet area in Hongdae, so you don’t have to worry about the noise around the area.
I have been wanting to stay in one of their dorm rooms since I have learned about their guesthouse. I contacted them directly and booked, mixed dorm rooms which cost around 25,000won/per night/ per head which is also a good deal because it also include FREE breakfast. Once I have confirmed our booking, no need to pay immediately, you can pay once you have checked-in with the guesthouse on the day you of your arrival.
We had a struggle finding the place when we get off the subway station (Hongik Station, Exit 9) and imagine we’re dragging our heavy luggage on steep slopes. But with a little help from our Korean chingus, we easily found the place, even some of them struggle to speak English, they still try their best to help tourist find their way. ^_____^v Kamsamnida!
