Stay = 2 nights (17 and 18 Oct 2016)

We had quite a hard time locating Family Housetel.  With some help from local Koreans and GPS, finally managed to find it.  About 5 minutes walk.  Out of Hongik University Station (line2) Exit 3 – walk straight all the way until you see  a hair salon at the end corner called “EZ Hair” – cross the main road – turn left into a small road   –  Family Housetel is just there opposite a small Japanese restaurant.

The guesthouse is locked and the check-in lobby is at 3rd level.  No lift.  You need to call the number posted on the main door.  Fortunately for us, a kind ajumma helped us to get someone to call for us. Check-in time is 2pm.

We  booked a triple sharing with attached bathroom at KRW 82,572 per night. Though guesthouse is a little dated, the room is big with 3 single beds.  Wifi is strong.  TV, fridge and hair dryer.

Bathroom is also equally big with strong hot/cold water pressure.  Small towels are provided.  Shampoo and liquid soap also available.

Breakfast is served on the 3rd floor.  It is DIY kind.  These are usual bread and butter/jam plus peanut butter.  There are fruits and eggs too.  Owner was kind enough to cut a big sweet apple for us.

Location is very convenient with lot of cafes and restaurants within walking distance.  Hondae is a very vibrant and hip area to look around.

The  breakfast area and reception/lobby is located together at 3rd floor.  It is very untidy clustered with lots of things.  This is a no frills kind of accommodation which one should not expect too much.  Owner is pleasant.
