In neighborhood there are many korean restaurants, fast foods, bars and pubs. All the time we could feel family atmosphere, staff is really nice and helpful, always smiling.

Staying in Daehakno

Neighbourhood Profile
Daehakno
Daehakno (literally "University Street") is home to a number of famed universities, so the neighborhood is always abuzz with university students, and a youthful, optimistic energy permeates the air. The abundance of restaurants, cafes, and shops cater to the younger demographic in both taste and prices, making it a popular meet-up area. Daehakno is also famed for its creativity, showcased in the many amateur performances put on at Marronnier Park and in more professional productions at small independent theaters scattered through the neighborhood. For a break, be sure to check out Ihwa Mural Village nearby, a former shantytown transformed into an art village with installations and wall paintings. It hosts a Filipino Market on Sundays.
