“I definitely will come back to Korea and stay at Wow Hills in the near future.”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

It was my first time to Korea and Wow Hills was one of my most memorable experiences. The family room (I travelled with three other girls) was super clean, fully equipped with all necessities. The owners were very helpful & gave us excellent service. They also introduced us to Korean cuisine with a big bbq with their super good homemade kimchi. I'm really thankful to them to make our stay in Korea so wonderful.

The stay was rather amazing. Prices for the stay was worth it,wasn't too pricey. The owners of the guesthouse made us feel like home. They treated us so well. They really took good care of us. The house location was pretty peaceful. The rooms were really clean. Everything was pretty efficient for us. Public transport was only a 5-10 minute walk from the house,so it's convenient. And also,the location has many stores so it isn't a hassle for you to go somewhere far to get the things that you need. The family room is definitely worth it if you're traveling there with your family. The room even has a kitchen corner and it's cool as you can cook your own meals at night. Even the single room looks pretty amazing. The service was just hands down good. Lovely people,lovely place and definitely a lovely country. We'd definitely stay over there again if we're gonna travel there. The house even has a amazing rooftop for you to have bbq session with the owners and family. It's really really worth living at the guesthouse.

Thanks for everything once again :)

Much love from Nazarah and family x

I have never stayed in a guesthouse before. But by accident, I was brought to this guesthouse during my stay in Korea and it gave me a very good first impression as the place was amazingly clean (practically spotless) and extremely comfortable to stay in.

What made it all a bonus was that the owners were really friendly and helpful. Although coming as a stranger in a foreign country, they instantly made you feel as if you were part of a family and a local. To me, that's the most important part about traveling - the EXPERIENCE with the people and culture. Which, the owners were very generously introducing famous attractions and current events.

Breakfast and little snacks are provided. MOST IMPORTANTLY, they have Internet, high speed computers, TV, washing machines for you to do your laundry, and air-conditioning.

Staying here was like staying in your own cozy home.

The owners were also really kind to send us to the train station on our last day. It's a service you won't even get from a 5-Star hotel.

Very value for money. Highly recommend it!!! For those who plan to go to Korea someday, choose this Guesthouse, I guarantee you won't have any regrets!

Place was super clean, good price, and in a great location. Owners live on site and were very friendly. It was located in an alley right near hongik university and had some really cool graffiti walls leading up to it. Stayed with 3 other friends in the 4 person suite. Had 4 beds and they were solid, but comfortable. The A/C here kicks butt! Nice and cold in the rooms once we turned them on.

Pros:
Location- Quick walk to everywhere and anywhere.
Clean- One of the cleanest guesthouse/hostels I have ever stayed in.
Price

Cons:
The shower was set up weird and water gets all over the bathroom floor.
Not a party guesthouse/hostel ( for some this may not be a con )
The Hill you have to walk up to get there...must be why this place is called Wow Hills lol.
