The Haemil Guesthouse, Seoul
I Seoul this place
This place is located in a wonderful area and a 10 minute walk to the subway station (Hongik Univ. Station). Also nearby is Hongdae and great artist neighborhood and much more to do and eat. The hotel has good service and it even provided a breakfast (cereal/toast). The owner was wonderful and made himself available for anything we may have needed.

My daughter was going to college at Yonsei so she went a few days early to adjust to the time change. Getting there (flight cancellations, delays, another cancellation) was a challenge. But the owners and staff at the Haemil Guest house were amazing! First they sent detailed info on how to get there. Step by step with pictures from the subway. The made adjustments on her arrival due to the delay and then carried her bags up 3 flights of stairs to the roof top room. And insisted that they would carry them down when she left. On the day she was leaving, there were monsoon level rains and no taxi's available. The owner put her in his car and drove her to her dorm at the campus. Amazing. The guest house itself is lovely and the staff considerate and friendly. The rooms were clear, the breakfast had fresh fruit and the service was amazing. On the roof top room, if you are over 5'6 it is a little short in the bathroom, so be aware of that for the gents.

Needs improvements
The Haemil Guesthouse is in a lively area of the city with buses and metro within walking distance. Lots of restaurants and little shops near by. While the experience was not terrible, the lodging itself is not great for the price you pay. The rooms are cramped and dark. The pictures show a continental style breakfast, but what is offered is minimal (bad coffee, white bread, sugary cereal). For the price, I would not recommend staying here. Nonetheless, the staff are friendly and helpful if you have questions.

Great value and location, clean and nice place
Haemil Guesthouse was great, on the whole. The owners were very nice and helpful. The room is clean and pretty comfortable. They upgraded us to a larger room, which was very much appreciated. Breakfast is good but very simple -- a fried egg and some fruit. Coffee was not great (tasted like robusta beans instead of arabica) so we just went down the street to a cafe for coffee, which was easy enough. The only real negative we experienced that the shower pressure is not so good. Towels are small but that is true everywhere in Korea. (If I come back to Korea, I will definitely bring my own towel so that I can wrap it around my head after showering.)

Affordable cute guest house with awesome hosts
It is walking distance (about 10 minutes) from/to Hongik station. I had a late arrival (close to midnight), but I received the detailed directions a few days in advance, so I could find the place easily. Mr. Lee was waiting for my late arrival, and as soon as I got to the guesthouse, he welcomed me and took me to my room. I stayed 4 nights in the Deluxe Double Room. The room was cozy and perfect for 1 or 2 guests, and it was equipped with all necessary items as described in the home page. I also borrowed an electric convertor. Bed was comfortable, bathroom and room were clean, and it was cleaned every day. WiFi was available in the guesthouse, however it was very spotty in my room. Home cooked breakfast was available between 8am to 10am. Upon my arrival to the common area, Mr. Lee’s mother (I think) cooked for me, so food was always fresh and warm. Bread, cereal, juice, coffee/tea were also available. There are many cute and small bars and restaurants around the guest house, and they open till late, so it could be a bit noisy at late night. I didn’t spend a lot of time in or around the guest house, but it was definitely a safe and cute neighborhood. I would say this guest house is equivalent to B&B style of accommodation in the U.S., rather than the hostel. If you want to feel like home in ROK, , this place is perfect for that. I highly recommend this place to all my friends and I would love to go back again.
