The pencil guesthouse is at very convenient location- close to subway and shopping area. There are plenty characteristic cafes, restaurants and bars around. Friendly staff and cozy dining area makes our stay feel like being home.

Couldn’t be a better location. I come here whenever I want to stay in the Hongdae area. Lots of stuff to do and the subway is very close!

Fair 4.0
Dark and depressing. No lift. This is a cheap hotel for backpackers. If you are over 30 don't even consider it.
