It's not too expensive.
It's like home at Housetay~ Housetay is located in a quiet zone in Hongdae with variety of shops,cafes,pubs and restaurants. It's value for money,with simple breakfast provided; and house cleaning is performed everyday. The staffs are nice and I make new friends here~ By Cloris~
Maybe butter can be provided for breakfast too? ^_^
One of the staffs in Pubstay, Amanda, was nice. The room was warm most of the days of my stay. Reasonable price. People stayed with me were nice. I might visit again just because of the staff that I mentioned and reasonable price, besides it I doubt.
I had had a problem with computer before I arrived there. I finally rent a laptop for couple of days but I had to fight for it which is a bit nonsense since most of guesthouses provide at least one computer for the customers...(other guests also told the same thing about the computer) I stayed at a new building and the Wifi was so weak which drove me crazy on my first day there.(I went there for kind of business so you could guess what I mean)
No water dispenser Wifi a bit slow on the 2nd floor
The only good thing: this place is in the middle of a lots of good places to eat and to see the nightlife in Seoul.
Believe me, this place is a trap. No cleanliness, no silence to sleep, all the pictures posted should be from years ago, denifitely no recomend.
I liked that the staff offered a refund for my second night as I chose to leave, after getting two hours sleep.
Upon check in the mattress protector had a large freyed hole in it (about two hands sized), I asked for it to be changed. There were several thumb-sized blood stains on the wall near my bed, from hit Mosquitos, and my pillow was damp, saggy and smelt of mould. The dorm was below ground level, so with the windows closed to stop the mosquitos - there was no fresh air to breathe, just damp staleness. Floorboards were adrift. Mattresses were old inner spring types which were really noisy and lumpy springs stick into your back all night. When the person above turns, it's like an old rusty gate. Kitchen a mess. I could only find 1 cup, no plates and one flat knife to stir the coffee mix with. I looked through the cupboards that weren't marked 'staff' and there was no common supply of plates, cups or utensils. Just one plastic cup. Bathroom a mouldy mess and Mosquitos pretty bad. Honestly, spend a few dollars and have a good night sleep elsewhere.
Location and price
Everyone Except location and price
Location, price was alright
- This place is pretty dirty. There are piles of laundry, beauty supplies and general trash everywhere. It looked like a hoarder lived there and just swept the piles into corners. - No security - there were no keys to the doors - only lock pads and they ALL had the same code. - No lockers - The hot water also kept going in and out :(
Location. Enough showeroom.
My pillow was so dirty with yellow spots like make-up and sweats.. I don't expect that much to guest house dormitories but there was tens of hair on my bed. The room was messy, so was shower room, kitchen and stairs.
The manager or owner is very nice, friendly and helpful. He even tried to help or please every guest of the house even in the tough and unpleasing time. Though breakfast is so basic with white bread and fruit jam plus coffee or tea, it is good to see the kitchen area that you can enjoy easy cooking and put your food in the ice box. The common area is also fine with me. Above of all, I really enjoined meeting and exchanging experience with the strangers who came from different countries, young and old, male and female. I DO PLAN to come pay visit Korea again, perhaps in the next or following winter in order to see the beauty of choice-in-my-heart palaces that will be covered wirh snow. And off couse Housetay shall be my first selection.
Mosquitoes, too much noices after bed time caused by the youngster. But it happened temporally.
Location was good. Easy to find and close to the subway exits. Was contacted through email before arriving to arrange our check-in time and the dorm rooms - this was great!
We had replied to the email saying we were coming in after 11:00PM. Upon arrival the person on staff was at the bar across the street (I believe they own both the bar and guesthouse). We had to ask other guests to get in touch with the staff. My friend got her change back in folded up, crinkled ones. He was unprofessional. The room was dirty, my pillow still had hair and make-up on it, and it was obvious they did not clean/make the bed after the previous person had checked out. The hair dryer is broken, the tub in the washroom is sealed off with a makeshift board, you had to purchase towels. Everything is dirty, messy, and unkept. The pictures are VERY deceiving. If I didn't get a deal on this room or had stayed more than one night I would be extremely disappointed. Do not recommend.
Great location in Hongik,worker greet you fairly. but the Housetay bar is nice, maybe get treat for a beer.
House is old, is messy and dirty. Plumbing in the toilet of second floor leak, and it blob! they charge you everything you use, towel, wash machine... no privacy in bed, and no small light when everybody crash in one room.
Nice location near Hongdae, decently price and definitely worth the price I paid
It felt like home:)
Very great location and extremly helpfull staff. Also with the free breakfast and drink specials at Pubstay accross the street for guests of Housetay, the morning was great!
