Very helpful staff, good location and nice décor. This hostel is very close to the university and is surrounded by restaurants and bars yet still manages to be quiet. Free breakfast and free wifi in common areas and room.

Nice and clean hostel in a lively neighbourhood, close to Hongdae. It's walking distance from Sinchon subway. The guys working at the guesthouse are very helpfull and friendly. Breakfast is a plus, you can get different kinds of bread/pastries, fresh fruit, eggs, coffee/tea en orange juice. I would definately stay at JK House when I return to Seoul!

I stayed in February here in the private room on the top floor. It was unbearably cold up there. I ended up sleeping with my jacket on with 2-3 blankets piled on top of me. Showering in such a cold room was equally as unpleasant. The other rooms on the lower floors looked nice and the staff was very helpful,...

My family of four, two adults and 2 teenagers, enjoyed 5 nights at the JK House. We stayed in a very comfortable 2 bunk bed room with a bathroom down the hall. As cozy and quiet as the guest house is, the neighborhood is bustling with small restaurants, small businesses and lots of exciting neon lights. We appreciated the you...

very friendly staff and a clean place. the breakfast selection is quite good: fried egg, OJ, milk, various muffins, bread, cheese, and fruits. my one gripe is that there isn't much of a comfortable lounge area. the dining chairs and table doubles as the lounging area. a couch would be nice but there isn't that much room i guess. also,...

JK House is really a very good place to stay in Seoul . For sure that I will came again . It is very well located inside the town, very closer to the underground, buses, and airport limousine ( 6002 ) .

Neighbourhood Profile
Sinchon / Ewha
Neighbouring Hongdae, the Sinchon / Ewha area by Yonsei University and Ewha Womans University is a popular student hangout spot known for its youthful jovialness. The two respective schools and their beautiful settings are among the best in Korea. As the main demographic in the area are younger students, most of the businesses cater to their tastes with price ranges to match. The plethora of things to do in the area makes it busy all through the day and night. The area around Ewha is particularly popular with women as it’s famed for its shopping and affordable hair and nail salons.
