This is our first vacation trip as family with my wife and 1 year old son. Also our first Airbnb booking and don’t know what to expect. With a little research, found a good area and found a host with high rating. Airbnb didn’t fail us to find a great host in Tei. He is just exceptional. First off, he accepted my changes in booking (changing number of guests and adding a discount coupon) without a question. Upon booking receipt, he provided us complete information which helped us a lot. No problems whatsoever – very easy to locate and just one train (AREX) away from the airport. He visited us on our second day to touch-base and have a good conversation. He sat down with us to give info on food, grocery and attractions nearby. I already have made my 5 day itinerary at home. Unfortunately, some activities are not doable since we have our baby with us and it is very cold outside ranging from -5 to 5 deg C. Tei comes in and saved our vacation! He gave us alternative indoor activities that we can do. He also offered us that he can call, even late at night, for food delivery for our comfort. And most of all, offered to bring our baby’s stroller to find cover for protection from cold. He didn’t find one but got us blankets, face mask, beanies and gloves for our baby. And he said those were his gifts for our baby! We don’t know how to thank him so much for his help. I still haven’t mentioned the place he has. The building is very well situated near from the exit of Main Train Lines. The room is very clean and everything is there. Room is spacious (has aircon and heater); beds are cozy; kitchen is complete with microwave and kettle for coffee and heat food; bathroom is clean with washing machine. Very good for families, groups of friends and even for couples 🙂 Tei is such a great host and I find a good friend in him. Hope to see him soon on our next Korea Trip in a different season 🙂 Maybe in Jeju Island.

Tie is very kindly host!!!This apartment is near subway station and 7-Eleven. And a few minutes walking a supermarket “KONAMART “. So this apartment is nice location and convenient. This apartment is clean room,so we were comfortable a trip. We were flight time for evening,so Tei is changed check-out 11am→1pm. We’re deeply grateful to you for your kindness. If I will go to Seoul,Tei’s apartment choose again. Teiさんはとても親切なホストです! お部屋は弘大駅から近く、セブンイレブンも近くにあります。また、少し歩いた所にKONAMART という地元のスーパーがあります。とても便利で最高な立地です。 部屋の中はとても清潔感があり、快適に過ごせました。 私たちの帰りの便の時間が夕方であった為、チェックアウトの時間を11時→13時に変更してくれました。とても感謝しています。 もし、またソウルに来た時は、再びTeiさんの部屋を選びたいと思います。

Tei made my first visit to Korea a super welcome one. He sent me a super detailed guide to get to the apartment (with pictures and cute cartoon characters) and was very responsive on LINE chat to guide me. When I arrived he showed up immediately to give me more info and answer any questions I had. He also let me leave my luggage in his office until later in the afternoon (after checkout) so I wouldn’t have to carry it around Seoul all day. The apartment itself is HUGE for the price and something in a very busy and popular area (Hongik University). It’s spotless and has everything you need to be comfortable. I truly wished I stayed there more than one night. I will definitely rent from Tei again when I return to Seoul!

Tei’s room is nice, clean and comfort! The location was very convenient which only take a minute to the building for from subway exit no.2. During my stay in Seoul, Tei was very helpful and helped me a lot. I will definitely return to Tei’s rooms and recommend to my friends too!

Absolutely perfect location! Getting to and from the airport is a breeze. The apartment is literally 1 minute away from Hongdae station. Also, it is well-decorated and well-appointed, complete with everything you need. The host, Tei, is especially accommodating, allowing us to check in earlier by around 2 hours. I would definitely stay here again given the chance and am recommending Tei House to all my friends.

Gabriel

November 23rd, 2015 Tei

Perfect location just above Hongik University Station which provides easy access to the airport and Seoul subway system. Also right in the middle of Hongdae, steps away from tons of great restaurants/bars/nightlife. The apartment is very comfortable. Tei was a great host, very accessible and quick to respond to any questions. Also very accommodating, providing us luggage storage as we had a late flight. It shows he really cares that his guests have a good experience. Highly recommended!

Ashley

November 23rd, 2015 Tei

The room is lovely and location is convenient. It is within walking distance to Hongdae so everyday is shopping day with many cafes and traditional korean food available. Also, It was really great that there is escalator at the nearest train exit. The host was really kind and helpful which makes the trip a much more enjoyable experience!

Katherine

November 23rd, 2015 Tei

Tei’s House was quite nice and large. I would highly recommend if you have a larger group but was also good for just the two of us. This was definitely one of our favorite neighborhoods for the night time, so being able to stay nearby was great!

숙소가 너무 깔끔하고 생가보다 넓어서 너무 좋아서요…친구들도 좋다고 하고요……친구들이 서울에 또 온다면 묵고 싶다하여 명함도 챙겨서요…….숙소 위치도 자세히 설명을 해주어 찾기가 쉬어서요…많이 걸어 다녀 피곤하여는데 마사지 기계가 있어 진~~~~짜루 좋아서요…

Gabriela

Eventhough we didn’t have the chance to meet Tei in person, he seems to be a very nice guy. Responded quickly to our messages and he was helpful and uncomplicated. His apartment is great. I can only speak highly of his place. It is located right next to Hongik University Subway Station, which connects you directly to Incheon & Gimpo Airport as well as Seoul Station and Subway Line No. 2. The room is perfect for 2 people. It was clean and had everything we needed in the room (bathroom, laundry machine, fully equipped kitchen, wifi and a tv). Overall: Great location, great price. Safe and clean. I will definitely come back again and recommend it to all my friends.

What more could I say..Tei’s house is simply superb and worth my every penny. Firstly, Tei himself is such a responsive host. Ask him everything, he would have the answers, and reply to you promptly, just in minutes. He speaks very good English and in such a gentleman manner. Tei’s house is in the unbeatable location, the happening Hongdae, with distance to nearest subway Hongik U is just a minute of walking. Hongik U station is attached to airport railroad line so I didn’t have to do any transfer from the Incheon Airport which is convenient enough when you arrived with big luggages. The place is spacious and 100% looks like in the pictures. All the amenities are simply working and effective. The foot massage is the mostly essential. Not to mention the wifi egg and the selfie stick. And the bidet in the toilet, is the biggest worth to me being a Muslim traveler.Those made my holiday simply amazing. Tei did not mind to provide me additional pot and pan for cooking, as per my request. He comes to the room every 2 days to collect the rubbish. The room is undeniably clean and modern in decoration, with the view of Hongdae city. The biggest respect to Tei is when he does not charge the security deposit to the tenant, like most of other host of the same rank of rooms do. This shows that Tei has a deep trust in his tenant, thus I tried my best to tidy the room back as same as I checked in. I hope Tei would maintain the unchargeable security deposit policy. I will surely come back to Tei’s place and highly recommend his place to other upcoming travelers.

Nice clean place to stay near the Hong University train station. The location is amazing! Lots of restaurants and shops around. Having the airport train line was a huge plus as well. It takes about an hour to get to Inchon international airport. We did a DMZ tour with Seoul city tour and their pickup location was literally two minutes away. Tei was a great host as well. His English is great and let me keep my bags in his office after checking out until my 7:00pm flight.

Sandy

We are a French family who stayed 4 nights in Tei House in Seoul. It was perfect, very well located, close to the subway. The place is very comfortable, clean and with everything you could need, even fresh water in the fridge! We met Tei when we arrived, he is very nice and welcoming. We highly recommend this place in Seoul !

Tei’s apartment is conveniently located at Hongdae – only 2 mins away from the train station and Hongdae’s main street. It was also clean, well organised and equipped with the required amenities. The wifi egg he provided was also very much appreciated. Tei had been a great host, providing us with helpful guides on Hongdae and was prompt in responding to our enquiries and requests.

Anna

October 24th, 2015 Tei

Apartment is as pictured. Tei was very accommodating! He was able to accommodate our luggage last minute. The location is just steps away from Hondae Univ station Exit 2, which made it extremely convenient. As mentioned by others, the leg massager was quite nice!! My two travel companions and I all used it in turns. I had my first experience with a bidet also! The kitchenette was cute– I admit that we did not cook, but there are so many restaurants and cafes nearby that it is not needed. Tei included a fresh bottle of water which was nice. The apartment is on the 17th floor. It’s got great views of the Namsan tower on clear days! The wifi was a little sluggish at times, though there were 3 of us connecting at the same time. Also, we had our own wifi egg, but didn’t see one available in the room as pictured. Perhaps you have to ask Tei about those directly. Overall, we had a great stay! Thank you!

Tei’s apartment is just as described. It was clean, easy to find and, of course, cosy and warm. The host reception was excellent. The apartment is in an excellent location.

We had a pleasant and comfortable 7 nights stay at Tei’s place, which is conveniently located in the heart of Hongdae, a mere 2 minutes walk from Hongik University metro station with many shopping and dining choices nearby. The apartment is nicely furnished and well equipped, complete with wifi. On the day of our arrival, Tei briefed us on the facilities of the apartment and brought along a wifi egg for our use when we are out. He also provided us with a map on how to get around Hongdae, places we can explore etc. Overall Tei is helpful and responsive.

My friends and I had a great experience staying at Tei House! For 4 nights, we called it our home while vacationing in the Seoul area. Tei was EXTREMELY helpful in accommodating us and our needs — he went above and beyond to help make our stay wonderful. (Giving us advice on how to get to the attractions we wanted to go to, suggesting restaurants to eat at, providing a very detailed guide about getting to the apartment, and being very responsive via messaging) The apartment was very clean and well-made upon our arrival, and all the provided amenities/appliances were in great condition. Would highly recommend if staying in the Seoul/Hongdae area!! 🙂

系去前几个星期我已经问了房东好多关于房问题,房东都全部一一回复我。房子真是好方便真是方便到无朋友,就是系地铁站弘大站2号出口直行5分钟就到,对面就是弘大,吃饭购物咩都一应齐全。里面设施真是吾使讲,咩都齐,早知道我就是带个急黎购买,带人,带钱就得。就是屋企一样,我讲过我下次黎韩国一定会再入住Tei的房,最后一天我走,房东还好热情同送我地走。真是给十个赞!

房间的位置非常便利,地铁口出来就能看见,走路2分钟左右就到了,房东给的指引很清晰,第一次去也很容易找到。另外附近有许多吃饭的地方,很方便。 房间干净宽敞,家电厨房设施等都很齐全,床也很大,房间布置的也挺温馨。 房东Tei答复问题非常快,虽然我们并没见面,但有问题他都会帮忙解决。 总而言之,是我们难忘的一次体验,以后有机会再去首尔,仍希望入住这里。我也会将此房介绍给我的朋友们!

Tei apartment is located at hongdae exit 2 with 1 min walk from the exit to the apartment building. There is a security guard at level 1. The apartment are very well furnished. Tei is a very approachable and responsive host. He has no problen communicating in english. He provided very comprehensive instruction for check in, english translation manual for all the appliances in the apartment and recommended places for dining in hongdae for his guest. His office is located in the same building which he will be around in the day. Therefore, contacting him is not a problem if you have any issues with the apartment. He allows us to keep our huge luggage with him after checking out while we travel to busan. We happy to meet up with tei in person. Overall, we are very satisfied with the host and the apartment. We will definately recommend my friend to stay here on their korea trip. Thumbs up!

October 6th, 2015 Tei

Tei has been one of the most responsive hosts I have ever met. He has helped us greatly not only in terms of planning our itinerary but also helped us contacted the locals when we had some issues to solve with Korail. Amenities provided were really good and the location of this apartment is totally perfect. It is just within 2mins walking distance from the exit of Hongdae station. Most importantly was the fact that Tei even provided us with a wifi egg. A must-have if you are lost. Strongly recommended for everyone and anyone to contact Tei if you are planning to stay in Seoul!

Good landlord! He can speak very good English。He has introduced a lot of Hongdae food and attractions. Will get back here soon! ^^

Kate

September 21st, 2015 Tei

I cannot recommend Tei’s apartment enough. The apartment itself is almost exactly as shown in the pictures – the only addition is that there’s an air conditioner unit now but that’s definitely a plus in the humid Seoul summer weather. It was comfortable and very conveniently located to pretty much everything. Not only that, Tei was a really great host, who went above and beyond to help us out with places to see and where to eat. I would definitely recommend staying at Tei’s place, and will definitely be looking to stay here again the next time I’m in Seoul.

Rin

September 21st, 2015 Tei

Tei is very accommodating and helpful to our requests, and even provided a foot massage machine knowing that we will be doing lots of walking. He kindly provided us to drop our luggage at his office as we arrived early on the first day. Tei had came to our room to show us the map of Hongdae which was useful as it was our first trip to Korea and he arranged for us the shuttle bus services to Nami Island. In addition, we also requested for an iron and a can opener and he was kind enough to loan us during our stay. The room was smaller than expected but it was cosy and appealing to the eyes. We did not manage to use the washing machine as we had to use the dryer rack but the bidet was very convenient and it came with instructions for us to understand. The beds were very comfy and the room was cooling. The location was superb as the link way to the subway station was located directly near our apartment and to top it off, the airport bus station was also nearby. I would definitely recommend staying at Tei’s place for the location and for having a helpful host like Tei. Tei has always been prompt in his replies and is just a text message away. Thank you Tei for making us bring back such wonderful memories of Korea 🙂

Emma

September 21st, 2015 Tei

Tei’s place is very location wise, only 1-min from Exit 2 of Hongdae Station which locates on line 2 subway and air express. The place is clean and just same as its description. If you want to have a budget place to stay at Seoul, here is a good place for you.

房间非常整洁漂亮,房间很宽敞,有生活必须用品。在这里用了房东的吕洗发水我就觉得买一些回国了。最重要的是,这里离弘大入口地铁站非常近,交通非常方便。第一天入住房东还拿了中文版地图给我们,耐心地给我们介绍首尔的好去处。在以后的日子里这些地图发挥的重要的作用,让我们少走了好多冤枉路。如果再来首尔我还会考虑住这里的,会推荐给朋友。

August 20th, 2015 Tei

First of all, Tei reply message promptly and he is fluent at English so I can communicate with him essaily. Secondly, he is a nice and friendly host who would send an email with more detailed guide about his cozy airbnb and Hongdae district so we can arrive his airbnb easily and have a nice trip in Seoul.When we got trouble about opening the door because the battery is unplugged,Tei helped us to fix the problem even though it is 10 p.m. Furthermore, his airbnb provide ANYTHING you need, for example washing machine, foot massage machine as well as the wifi egg. We really enjoy living at his airbnb. His airbnb is super closed to hongdae exit 2 , we only take 30 seconds from the MTR station. I really recommended this airbnb and when I come to Seoul next time, I would also choose Tei’s airbnb. 我十分推介TEI 的民宿給大家,首先TEI 能夠說流利的英文及迅速地回覆留言,所以不需要擔心溝通的問題。另外,他十分有善,第一天因為門瑣的電池脫落,他立即幫我們解決,即使當時已經10點。再者,他的民宿提供所有你所需要的物品,包括洗衣機、按摩機及wifi egg,所以根本不需要帶很多東西就可以入住。最後,他的民宿真的很方便,從弘大2號出口走30 秒就可以到達,而弘大一區有很多美食、衣服,所以下住來首爾,我也會再選擇TEI 的民宿。^.^

Wonderful stay in Tei’s house. Tei is indeed a very good host. Very accommodating and flexible. The house itself is very clean, cosy and comfortable. Location is superb, just less than 2 minutes walk to the subway station. Furthermore, is so easy to reach from Incheaon Airport. The house is in the heart of Hongdae and surrounded by many restaurants and shopping. Will definitely stay here again for next trip to Seoul. Definitely value for the money.

A great experience! Stayed in tei’s house for 5 nights, tei was kind enough to inform us the situation in korea before we head over due to the mers outbreak. Tei was really nice to offer us an early check in and let us know all the restaurants and supermarket to check out during our stay. Tei also provided us with an wifi egg where we were able to be connected throughout our trip. As our flight was in the evening, tei was also kind enough to provide us to keep our luggages till the afternoon. Great stay and highly recommended!

Initially we have some problem getting into the unit. However Mr. Tei turned up in about 15 min. and solved it. The unit is as per described and is clean. Ours on the 11th floor and apart from some car noise at night is quiet. He was kind enough to provide an WEFI egg for our use. The biggest problem we have is the shower temperature control which tends to varied . I would dread to face that in the winter. The surrounding area is full of students population and week ends are really crowded. The building is just outside the Exit 3 of Hongyik University subway stn, and also access the AREX train to both the KIMPO and INCHEON airport(50min.) for about 4,000 plus won. oneway. Incidentally the Airport Limousine bus cost much more and probably slower.

It was a good choice to stay in Tei’s room as the location is so convenient, which is just next to the subway station. The room is clean and comfortable that we were like in our home. And Tei is so helpful and friendly, when we had problems, he and his co-worker could solve them in a short time. He is willing to help us and answer our questions. If I go to Seoul next time, I will definitely choose Tei’s place! 🙂 Thank you Tei!! 🙂

Tei is very helpful. He greeted us as soon as we arrived. Instruction to apartment was clear, and easy to find. The unit is also near to subway station and AREX station to airport which is great. It is also near the hustle and bustle of Hongdae night life. Tei is helpful in providing recommendations and directions to places we want to visit.

房屋非常接近弘大站, 在2號出口一出就到了。房間非常整潔和舒適! 房東也很好,因為第一晚的空調不夠,第二天房東就幫我們換了一個新的空調!第一次住民宿就有很完美的經驗。下次也會一定會再住這間!

We loved Tei’s place especially the swing, too bad we didnt get to stay there for the duration of the trip but the decision to still stay there was really great. He is a very accomodating host, he answers all our queries on time and is very nice. His place was also literally a minute walk from exit 2 of Hongik Univ Station.

Tei非常好,我用特别有限的英文水平和他也能愉快交流~~在去之前反复和我确认入住需求和流程,让我一到那里很清楚的找到并入住;期间也会微信问问有没有需求,总之是一个很温油的韩国男生~~ 房间很温馨,一张床睡两个女生还有剩余空间;很干净,就像在自己家;卫生间空间足够干净,吕的洗发水和沐浴露让我们省了自己带的麻烦;房间三个镜子一个梳妆台,满足4个女生早上穿衣打扮的所有需求;小杂物房也配了晾衣架,超方便。 房间的地理位置更是没的说,就在地铁上,不仅乘地铁方便,出门打车也方便,从来没有等很久或者打不到的情况。因为住得近,我们几天时间走遍了弘大的各条主道小街,很喜欢这里的氛围。物价相对明洞便宜,同样的鱼饼弘大500明洞1500,吃的很多,都没来得及一一吃过来~~~ 哎呀,把这里优点都说出来了,不要以后我再去自己订不到了·······妹妹说以后去首尔一定还住这里的~~~

The room is clean and Tei prepare everything we may need ! Also, Tei is very friendly host, he answer our question very quickly, and he is very thoughtful too ! like some of the machine only have Korean intrusions on it , Tei prepare a English menu ans instruction for all electronic device in the house, so we could use the washing-machine and television without any problem !

The location is really good, just 3 mins walk from Hongik Univ subway Stn. Tei is extremely attentive and considerate to our needs throughout our short stay! Prior the stay, he has shown his friendliness by providing useful guides and responding to our request like late checkout and if he can help to keep our luggages on the day of checkout. The moment we checked in, he dropped by the house to brief us and ensure that everything is good and that we feel comfortable. A lot of times he really caught us by surprise by providing more than we expected. Super responsive and helpful. He provided laundry nets, plasters, additional blankets and towels, even shared information about the upcoming summer festival and places to visit nearby. We have no problems communicating with Tei as he really speaks English well. It was truly a pleasant stay at Tei House and we highly recommend his apartment to everyone else who plans to come to Seoul.

Tei is a very nice and helpful host. He always replies promptly. I especially love his self-made guide of the nearby neighborhood, listing out all the must try restaurants. Too bad that our trip was too short we failed to go to all his recommendation! On our arrival day Tei and his friend came to greet us and it made us feel warm 🙂 The apartment is located at a super convenient and bustling area. It is so close to the metro and a convenient store is just right next to the building supplying everything you may need. Highly recommended and would definitely stay in Tei’s place again for my future Korea trip. P.S. the wifi egg and the selfie stick are super useful!

I couldn’t have hoped for a better place to stay. Tei’s place is conveniently located in the center of Hongdae and only a 1-minute walk to the subway. The room was a good fit for my family. It had all the necessities, and the beds were comfortable. In addition, Tei was a great host. He met us when we first arrived, and he gave us a tour of his place. Most importantly, he was easy to get in contact with and very helpful if we had any questions.

Grace

Tei is the best host one could ever ask for! His room is clean, well organized and equipped everything you could possibly need! Tei also gave us new towels frequently and is very easy to communicate with. Tei is also very helpful in giving us directions and a detailed guide on where we can find local cuisines and restaurant. I would recommend tei’s place to anyone looking to stay in Korea, as it has got one of the best location! 1 minute walk from hongdae subway and its Main Street! Thank you tei for giving us a wonderful experience on airbnb and our stay in Korea! 🙂

房间住着很舒服,各种设施方便,EGG、转换插头和按摩器都很实用。地理位置也超级棒,就在弘大地铁口,到哪里都很方便。特别要说的是,Tei真的超级好,帮我们做攻略还带我们吃好吃的,最后返程幸好tei带我们在首尔站提前托运办登机牌,避免了误机。总之很庆幸入住了tei的房间。

There are numerous compliments that I must make about staying at Tei’s place. 1. Location: subway, bus, and taxis are conveniently found. You can even take an express train to Incheon International Airport. The train station is right next to the apartment complex. It costs KWN 3,850 and takes less than an hour. 2. Size of the room: I expected the size of the room would be more like the rooms in NY, but Tei’s place was way bigger than I thought. I appreciated every moment I was there. 3. Leg massaging machine: this truly was the best thing ever. I almost bought one on the way back home. After walking 6-7 miles/day, you would know what I’m talking about. 4. The Hosts: Tei and his co-worker were very prompt to our requests and needs. They were also super friendly. Thanks to them, my sister and I discovered a lot of great Korean cuisines. 🙂

nice host。This is the first time I use airbnb to book room,and the experience was so amazing…Tei’s house is very closed to the hongdae subway station,1 minute’walk.Everything in the apartment is new and clean,Tei offers everything you may need in your journey,even a foot massage machine…he is so considerateʕ •ᴥ•ʔ!what the pity is that I took his wifi egg exchanger away by mistake,that makes me feel so sorry…(´・_・`)Thank you for the hospitality…we really enjoy it.

Tei is a super nice and friendly guy. He really takes care of us like how a friend would, like asking us how are we .. if we need anything, we can just text him. He will try his best to help us. He’s the best host I’ve met so far. The apartment is a very comfortable place n loc is very convenient too … =)

房間位址超越,就在大街上面即使是乘的士回去也很易認路,真的十分方便,就在弘大站上面步行不到兩分鐘就到,弘大站也就是機場線的其中一站,所以到機場也是十分方便!對面就是漫步的小徑和燒烤街,房東先生人很好,英語也流利,他甚麼通通也為我們準備好,只是房間沒太多掛勾,我們的衣服和毛巾沒位放,都掛到廚房的門上去了。要讚的是房間隔音很好,完全聽不到隔壁房間的聲音,比有些酒店的隔音做得好。

This review comes from a family of 5 staying in an apt for 21 days. We are the first to book and hence the first tenant to stay at that apartment. This apt is truly 1-2 mins walk from the subway station as it’s only located just beside the subway station!! Being the first person to book, Tei gave us many privileges, which I’m truly blessed with 🙂 Tei is a very friendly, kind, hardworking and patient person. He is also an attentive person who patiently listens to all our needs and bring them up punctually on the time we agreed upon. During the 21 days stay, although there are some minor problems, he never fail to fix them up immediately. He is someone who puts his tenants as the first priority, answering everything that you need to ask promptly. Honestly speaking, I couldn’t find any negative thing about him to list them down here because he has none! Although the room is a little small, you can rest assure that you will be dealing with a person with only positive vibes. Will definitely come back. Tei 오빠, 화이팅! 🙂

Tei is a very helpful host. He prepared detail living goods for us. The location of this apartment is near EXIT 2 of Hongdae Metro Station. It’s really convenient for shopping and meal. Room was so clearly and sweety style. It’s suit couple or friends. Hope you could order Tei’s house and make good friend with him.

I would definitely recommend staying at Tei’s place for anyone staying in Seoul. It’s very conveniently located next to Hongdae Station and easily accessible with a room code. As soon as I arrived, Tei met me at the apartment and showed me how to utilize all the features within the room. I only arrived with a few items for my trip so it was nice having everything readily available. The beds were comfortable and all appliances were in excellent condition. I will definitely be booking future trips in Seoul at Tei’s place.

The studio is very near to Hongik University station (less than 1 min walk) and there are many cafes, restaurants and shops around the university area. There is even a mall opposite the apartment. I was greeted by Tei and his friend when I arrived at the studio and he showed me around the house. It is very clean and have everything that you would need. I particularly like the bed because it is very comfortable to sleep in. Tei also provide a WiFi egg which I found it to be VERY useful. Overall, I had a very good experience here and would definitely recommend this studio to everyone 🙂

It was a wonderful experience staying at Tei’s place. Tei is such a great and friendly host helping me and my family in so many ways. I contacted him serveral times through Line and can alwalys got his response shortly. The room is exactly the same as the pic, neat and cozy and equipped with new furnitures. It nears to Hongdae area and just 1 min away from subway exit, easy to get to anywhere. Tei provides free wifi egg for his guest which help the trip more convenient. Especially the foot massage machine is another highlight. I’ve stayed in many guesthouses in Seoul but Tei’s place is the most comfortable and made me feel like home. I will definitely choose to stay here again in my next visit!

Tei是一個非常非常棒的房東…房間很新非常乾淨漂亮 房間擺設及空間大小如同照片一模一樣,完全無差異 額外提供免治馬桶、按摩腿機、自拍桿、 最棒還有WIFI EGG供房客免費使用 還而外提供泡麵讓我們煮食,吃完也去多買幾包回國… 剛到房間時還會來問候拜訪,並告訴我們房間設施使用方式,非常貼心 距離2號線弘大出口也不用1分鐘,機場快線5分鐘、樓下就有7-11,對面就是熱鬧的弘大商圈… 一切都非常棒,下次來首爾一定會再選擇Tei的房間…

Tei was an AMAZING host. Everything was perfect in the room — cozy sheets, clean and modern bathroom, even a little kitchenette with thoughtful complementary gifts. My girlfriend was super picky, but it was such a relief that she LOVED the place. It’s a great location with super convenient access to all of Hongdae. Tei was SUPER accommodating and extremely friendly and responsive, going way above and beyond to make sure we felt we were getting our money’s worth. Bottom Line: Super clean and getting the details right with a host who knows what he’s doing. That’s what counts. You are in for a treat. 🙂
