Guesthouse near the station with a homely atmosphere”

Stayed here for a solo trip during the consecutive holidays. The nearest station was Kami-Suwa, but it was also close to the main street of Hondō and had a good location. The staff mainly spoke English, but there were also those who spoke Korean. Everyone was kind and had a warmth as if they were visiting a friend's house. The towels and bedding were clean. The toilet and shower are shared, so it may be difficult for those who cannot tolerate it unless it is as clean as a hotel. There were times when there was no staff present. Some people waited at check-in because there was no contact information at the entrance. (There is a phone number written in the room, and it seems that they will come immediately if you contact them.) I had a great trip by staying at this good hotel. I would recommend it.

Very good experience ”

I stayed at Mamas & Papas Guesthouse for one month straight and it was a very good experience. The location is perfect (a lot of restaurant, shop, subway stations very near...), the guesthouse is really good, it's very clean. And the most important thing, the staff is extraordinary. Really!!! The staff is really nice, you can feel like home. I'll for sure come back to this guesthouse if I return to Seoul one day.

Great stay, homey and hospitable”

Staff, location, hospitable

It was great. We had a mishap with the reservation since they had no rooms available for some of the days we booked (site mishap) but mamas and papas staff did their best to accommodate us and make us comfortable. They made the trip a success and I don't regret booking and staying with them at all. They showed us some great places to eat like base camp and they took us out to dinner. Being able to make breakfast in the morning was great. It had a great home vibe. My friend that accompanied me for her first time in Korea felt she got the real experience and felt we stayed at the perfect place to get to know the local point of view, night life and a good hospitable experience. I'd definitely come back again. Thank you for everything, l loved my stay. It's not the best but I feel it was kinda perfect.

Great Place!”

I had an amazing experience here. Got a great deal to start out with and I had nothing to complain about about the whole experience. Oscar is an awesome dude and will help you out with anything you need. Bedroom, sheets, bathroom, and kitchen were all clean. They have free bread and coffee, so not too much of a breakfast, but better than nothing. You can buy your own food and cook it there if you want though. If you're in Hongdae to party, this is your place to go. It's surrounded by bars and clubs so it can get a little loud outside but not too bad. If you aren't too picky it won't be a problem
