“Great place ! Great serives”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Highly recommended hostel in Seoul. This is my first time staying in a hostel as Im not comrtable with toilet sharing. T...he toilets come with shampoo, bath form and facial wash with towels provided. Very Convenient location with food and shopping everywhere.The most important thing is the great friendly staff at Chocolate tree! They were very helpful , gave us directions to places of visit.Thanks to great friendly staff. During our stay my friend and myself watned to develop some photos and one of the staff helped us with the that without us having the hassle to go around around looking for photo studios. My friend wanted mail back some of her shopping and the staff helped her with that!Thanks so much to the great homely service...I would give Chocolate tree a Wow!5 star! will be back!

This is my second time staying over at CT, however this is my first attempt staying alone. The staffs has been very helpful and the room has been very clean and comfortable. However would like to feedback that the wifi in the rooms and the wifi egg that has been provided for rental has been a bit weak. If the strength can be improved that will be greater.

We (two couples) stayed a total of six nights from 23 Apr 14 to 29 Apr 14 in two double en-suit rooms (Rooms 302 and 303). Chocolate Tree is conveniently located as it is within 5-minute walk from Sinchon subway station and walking distance from Hongdae and Ewha shopping areas. There are also a number of eateries near Chocolate Tree which served yummy good food (e.g. Seo Seo Galbi for stand-and-eat beef, Palsaek Samgyeopsal for 8-flavoured BBQ pork and Issac Toast for delicious sandwiches for breakfast). The rooms and toilets are clean and cosy. Each room comes with toiletries (shampoo, body shower, facial foam, towels, etc), a fridge, a desktop computer for surfing the net and a large LED TV which will be even more wonderful if complete with a TV guide. The staff at Chocolate Tree are so friendly and helpful and we would like to say a BIG Thank You to Eric and Mei for the great hospitality!! We will certainly stay at Chocolate Tree again!!! :))

I stayed for 17 nights in Chocolate Tree and I like to recommend it to everyone who plans to visit Seoul.
The hotel staff is very friendly, helpful and speaks very good English. They take very good care of their guests, and help you with all your questions in all situations.
The rooms are very clean, comfortable and very good equipped so you could rest or sleep very well there. The hotel has a very good service, you can borrow a lot of things if you need something , or you can order food, as well as an airport cargo etc..
The hotel is located 5 minutes from Sinchon station. Based on the directions you can find the hotel very easy. Near to that place there are many shops , restaurants , metro, as well as bars or clubs . The hotel is very central and therefore easily accessible.
I felt very good at Chocolate Tree and when I get back to Seoul I definitely would choose Chocolate Tree again .
Chocolate Tree is the best decision for a good place to live in Seoul.
Thank you very much for the great time & see you soon :)!

CT guesthouse is conveniently located in Sinchon, within 5 mins walking distance to Sinchon subway station. From here I walked to the Ehwa Women Uni and Hongdae area nearby. The G-Mart is just next to the subway station and you may consider to buy your stuffs here if you don't want to purposely travel to Lotte Mart in Seoul Station.
The staffs at CT were very helpful and accommodating. They even sell stamps and helped me to post my postcard.
I stayed in the basement double room for 3 nights. It's a bit small for the two of us with big luggages. The toilet has a translucent glass but it also comes with a curtain. Shampoos and even face cleanser and toothpaste are available in the toilet. The room has a heating-floor which kept me warm during the cold days. Each room is equipped with a desktop and also a TV. Free wifi access is available in the room. But unfortunately I couldn't enjoy this facility as the desktop was unable to connect to the internet during my stay there. The dining area is at the basement. It's easy for us to reach the dining area but on the other hand, we were being disturbed by noises when people gathered in the dining area. Free nail polishes are available at the corner of the dining area. There is also a weighing machine available near the reception.

Room Tip: choose the higher floor if you don't want to be awakened by noises from the dining area, but you...
