I spent an incredible few days in this place, this slightly removed from the subway station but not far away and is very easy to get to, Jacob explains very well; The place is very quiet and safe, you can walk the streets at night, the house is as it is in the photos, it is a very nice place; I would definitely go back on my next visit.

Jacob is a nice guy and prepared the room so well. The location of the guesthouse is not near the centre of the Street so it is pretty quiet at nighttime. You can chat with him to get more information for your visit.

Jacob has been amazing, providing some help when I needed it. The place is clean, cute and quiet. It is super close to the Hongdae area and Hongik subway station. Moreover, there are a few shops and restaurants along the way, which I found convenient. I spent a few days at Jacob's and I would recommend anyone to do as much.

Every country have attractive something, I'm sure that traveler could find those by themselves.

We have been thinking that traveler has warmth and good heart.
We hope that they could have traveling with keeping their good heart.
Sometimes something wrong happens during a trip.
We would like to help that everyone can go travel without any trouble.

We are beginner at these language skill, but we will keep trying to learn speak.

We feel as like traveler when we meet the traveler.
Happy feeling of traveler makes us happy.
Travelling to other country is always very difficult, which is same to us.
So someone often help us while travelling.
We will help to traveler now.
Though someday when we begin to go travel, somebody might help us.
They say that "we can take just as much as we give".
We think traveler is to be us someday.

We sincerely hope to be friends with you.
That is happy thinking that we would see you again in your country.
