As a whole, Jacob's guesthouse 'Mariuji' is worth staying for my next coming trip. The house is what it is like as listed, it was so clean and comfy. My family was very satisfied with it. Jacob was very helpful that he drove us from subway station at the first day and to it on the last day. I was really thankful of this. Highly recommend this to all travellers who are with family or friends. It would be very nice.

Jacob is a very warm, gracious, and helpful host. He provided us with breakfast and is available to offer us help and information. He is nearby onsite if we need but offers us privacy. The listing itself was neat and clean. The bathroom and bedrooms were homey and comfortable. There was a kitchen if you needed to cook. Washing machine is on the deck and you can air dry your clothes. The unit itself was painted and decorated in a charming way and there were a lot of cute plants on the deck. It is nearby Hongik University and Hongdae area, quite convenient. I would recommend this listing.

Jacob is such a kind and friendly man! The house is perfect and so clean The abundant breakfast provided everyday made a good start of our trip! The house has everything we need, I'll definitely go there if I travel alone next time! It is pretty close to the exit2 of Hongdae, and it's actually not far from the popular shopping spot of exit9 I love Korea~ and definitely maruji house

Jacob was super friendly right off the bat. He responded right away to my listing and whenever I asked him questions about Korea or about his place before my trip, his responses were always prompt. His guesthouse is super clean and it's adorable. We shared the guesthouse with other guests and we were hoping to be friends with them but they stuck to themselves, it was just unfortunate. I think being in a guesthouse with other people could really help you make friends and make your experience at a foreign more fun and memorable. Every morning, Jacob put out breakfast for us and always had clean towels for us. It was just wonderful hospitality. His place is also walkable distance away from the downtown Hongdae district and also all the subway and bus stations. I definitely recommend this guesthouse and the next time I come back to visit Korea, I would love to stay at this guesthouse again.
