10/10 Exceptional

Perfect stay for my family of 6. A very cosy place for winter. Meticulous care by the host & hostess. The best part came from the effort made by host to contact us urgently when we left without our passports in the safe unknowingly. We have them all back. Thank you Paul!

8/10 Very good

Hosts were way TOO nice
Overall, it was a wonderful stay — the house was clean and homey. Brekky was free and yummy. The only thing is — the hosts were way TOO nice. They always came running every time they heard a sound from the second floor where the guests stay; thus, it made us feel a little bit uncomfy and “suffocated”. I know the hosts meant well, but still it made us feel like our every move was guarded.

Nice host , Clean and tidy
Paul is a nice host. He provided healthy breakfast every morning with all homemade food. Homemade bread, cake, yogurt .. The accommodation is clean and big. Around 20 square meter . Washing machine is free to use and a domestics hanger for hanging my clothes. Cons: need to take bus from metro station, toilet and bathroom are outside a bedroom

Wonderful week spent with amazing host!
My sister and I had an absolutely amazing experience staying with Paul and his wife for the week we were in Seoul. We were welcomed with great hospitality, showered with homemade snacks and drinks even when it was quite late into the night when we first arrived as our flight was delayed. The room and facilities were so clean and kept in immaculate conditions, but with a very warm homely feel to it, in contrast to the restrictive feel if you were to check into a hotel. Paul and his wife very kindly accommodated us with the timing of our daily breakfast, so we don't have to adhere to a set routine. These homemade breakfasts not only were very tasty, Paul and his wife also made an effort to keep the menu refreshed each day with different alternatives. Not only that, Paul even went further and beyond to help us familiarize ourselves with the neighbourhood, the public transport system to ensure that we can find our way back home, provide tips about places worth visiting to help us best spend our time in the city. We were so grateful that he lent us his portable wifi so we can utilize during our time outside, which was incredibly helpful when we were out and about exploring new and unfamiliar places. They even made sure that we were well-informed with options of transport to help us get to the airport in time for our returning flight, and Paul very kindly ordered a taxi to the airport at a very reasonable rate. This by far has been the best trip and place we've ever stayed with!

VERY nice B&B!
This is a very pretty property! It has a large garden (backyard) that is beautifully maintained. The owners are very nice and go out of their way to make sure that your stay is comfortable and welcoming. The breakfast in he morning is homemade and delicious. It is very close to a bus stop that can take you anywhere. There is a bus from Incheon Airport to this bus stop. You can call the owner of Puzzlestay House when you are on the bus and he will meet you at the bus stop by the property. I highly recommend staying here. I won't stay stay anywhere else in Seoul!

Such a paradise in the middle of Seoul
We stayed only one night and were greeted from Paul, the owner very heartfully. We chose the hostel according to previous reviews and our expectations got even disconfirmed - positively! We had the pink room, which is very clean and spacious, the furniture has been chosen with great taste. Paul served us homemade cookies as a welcome (Madeleines - which were delicious). At night he took us out and showed us the surroundings like the traditional markets and we had dinner in a recommended restaurant which was great. He took great care of us and the stay was fantastic. So all in all, we highly recommend this guest house especially for internationals, you will feel at home away from home! Greetings from Alex and Chris

宿では とても親切に対応していただいて助かりました。部屋やバスルームなども清潔でした。大きなベッドでぐっすり眠れました。宿のご主人には 本当に親切に地下鉄の事などを教えて頂き、助かりました。素敵な思い出になりました。 (タオルは用意あり、歯ブラシは無かったです。参加までに。)
