Great Guesthouse in Seoul
If I could, I would definitely give this guesthouse more than 5 stars; it was one of the highlights of my trip to Korea. The couple who run Owl Guesthouse are extremely nice and helpful. They both speak English (as well as Mandarin and Japanese) and went above and beyond to ensure I had a good trip, giving me recommendations on the best places to visit, find information about special events, and how to get around not only in Seoul, but also in other Korean cities. They even invited me to join them for dinner. They also let me check in early and store my luggage for a day after I checked out. As for the property itself, it is very clean, comfortable, and safe. It opened within the last couple years, so the rooms are very new and in great condition. The rooms have air conditioning, and also a new keypad lock system that makes you feel quite safe and is also more convenient than carrying around a key. They provide a free breakfast, common area to eat in, as well as towels/shampoo, and even TMoney transportation cards. It is located between two subway stops on line 1 and 6(5 min walk away), and a major bus station, and it doesn't take very long to get to Seoul station or other main attractions (such as all the palaces) by subway. There are also a number of good restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Overall, this guesthouse is a great place to stay, and provides service of a level well beyond what you'd expect for the price. I'll definitely stay here next time I'm in Seoul.

スタッフの方が常に優しい雰囲気で話してくださって、韓国語が話せなくても伝わるよう努力してくださいました。 チェックアウトが遅くなってしまったのですが、親切にしていただけました。 部屋も広くて綺麗でした!

도심 속 작은 휴식공간
서울 지리를 잘 몰라 일단 지도로 찾아가기는 쉽지 않았다. 하지만 숙소로 전화를 했을 때 정말 정확하게 알려주셔서 쉽게 찾을 수 있었고 독채인듯 독채 아닌 독채 같은 공간으로 다른 여행객들과 분리 될 수 있었다는 것이 참 마음에 들었다. 숙소는 비교적 깔끔했고 침구류가 깔끔했던 것이 가장 마음에 들었다. 여행 후 휴식 공간인데 침구류가 더럽다면 정말 잘 쉴수도 없지 않은가... 그런 점에서 난 이 숙소가 참 마음에 든다.

本來以為是獨立洗手間,但原來是共用的,有點失望。 不過老闆人很好,很幫忙,地方也很乾淨,地點也很好。

친절하신 주인분과 소박하지만 편안한 숙소
주인분께서 매우 친절하셨어요! 중국어도 엄청나게 잘 하셔서 해당국가 분이 묵고 가시기에 매우 좋을듯 하네요. 가격도 저렴하고 싱글침대도 편안했어요.

地點優,距機場6002巴士站步行5分鐘,離東廟地鐵站 Dongmyo station exit 2很近,去東大門地鐵站 Dongdaemun station 1站。主人夫婦親切好客,親自帶我們至路口餐廳。中,英文流利。房間大(訂的是2人房,但免費提供3人房),可放大行李。乾淨舒適,熱水供應足。早餐在主人客廳兼lobby,除養貓略有些味道外,其餘都很好。以性價比而言,值得推薦。

일단 지하철역에서 도보 5분정도 걸렸고, 위치도 찾기 편했습니다. 저는 6인실을 썼는데, 겨울이어서 2층침대가 춥지 않을까 걱정했는데, 바닥난방 따뜻하고, 침구류도 따뜻해서 전혀 춥지 않았습니다. 반팔 입고 2층에서 잤는데, 정말 따뜻했습니다. 샤워실도 깔끔해서 전혀 불편함 없었구요. 사모님도 친절하십니다. 다음에 혼자가도 여기 머무르고 싶을 것 같아요~!
