This place was great! They had a nice little bar to grab a beer and noodles after a long flight. They had a little out door patio to catch some fresh air and chat with other travelers. It was in a cool neighborhood with lots of late night bars. I stayed in the dorms which were clean and had lockers....

I had a wonderful experience at Blu and will definitely visit again! Firstly, the location is great, on the calmer side of hongdae, but within a few minutes walk to Hongdae station, and the bustling part of Hongdae. Hongdae is an amazing area to stay in, especially for students and young travelers, everything you need and want is there! Secondly,...

I stayed at this guesthouse for 8 weeks and had an excellent experience. Here are some of the reasons why I think so: - The location is excellent. It is easy to find and it's very conveniently located, near both Hongdae and Hapjeong stations. What I liked best was that it's not on a "main" road, but a side alley,...

Staying in Hongdae

Neighbourhood Profile
Hongdae
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.
