Our house is located conveniently in the heart of Itaewon, Seoul which borders the northern part of the Hangang River. It is beside Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, and Namsan Mountain. The formation of this exotic and global tourism site is closely associated with modern Korean history.

There are two bunk beds available in each room fitting up to four people (you may rent a room with less than four if you wish). There is shared a living room, two bathrooms with showers, and a beautiful rooftop.

The space

This house is located in The Global Community in Seoul: Global Fashions and Foods

Itaewon is a unique place in Seoul where one can meet people of diverse nationalities and cultures. Seoul designated Itaewon as its first ‘Special Tourism District,’ to highlight it as a destination for internationals to enjoy a diversity of culture, shopping, entertainment experiences, and partying.

In the aftermath of the Korean War, American soldiers began to stay in this area and, consequently, numerous businesses and housing complexes were formed here. In preparation for international meetings, the Seoul Asian and Olympic Games, the government strengthened tourism infrastructures and revitalized commerce, prompting international tourists from other parts of the world to visit Itaewon.

Itaewon typically refers to the street full of stores, restaurants, cafes, bars, and clubs over 1.4 kilometers.

Another one of Itaewon’s many draws is its diverse food culture, which features cuisine from around world. Restaurants right behind Hamilton Hotel form a type of exhibition hall for international foods from Korea, New York, London, India, Thailand, China, Greece, Pakistan, Italy, France, Mexico, Australia, and more. Unique flavors, exotic interiors, and diverse nationalities help to make Itaewon befittingly ‘the global village in Seoul.’

Bustling area with lots of pubs and clubs. Can get noisy on weekend nights but it will be okay if you stay up late anyway. James and his brother were very patient and hospitable and even gave us suggestions on where to go in Seoul and Busan. You get what you pay for and overall good value for money for travelers with a tighter budget!

I had a great time staying here. The place is near Itaewob station, so it's convinient to go anywhere in Seoul. James replies very fast whenever we ask, he and jihoon is also very friendly. Jihoon even help us to find the next guest house and move our luggage there. Such a nice guy! Cozy place with proper price for backpacker and those who dont want to waste to much money on an accommodation while travelling. Highly reccommend to you all

Very accommodating. Great place with a great view! Definitely plan on going back there in the future and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Itaewon. It's very close to restaurants, bars, etc., which makes it that much more worthwhile. Also very affordable too!
