If you are looking for a quiet place to stay with a kitchen, a washin machine, this place is perfect and the area is cheap with a lot of students, progressives and young people. Near a lot of shops, foods, Korean or western bars, everything is near. The owner is so funny and he has welcomed me very well, we...

If all you care about is being near the party scene then this place might suit your needs. There's no AC, which was our fault for not realizing when booking, but it was ridiculously hot outside and the owner didn't bother to set up any fans. We would have asked him, but only saw him one time during our stay...

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.
