“Private space, fun area!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Wow hills is a great accommodation. Best value if you book a private dorm. It's basically like a private apartment - internet, TV, kitchen. The owners live next door and are really nice and drop and pick from station. Wow hillsi is next to Hongik university station, direct line from airport. The area is young and fun, lots of shops and restaurants and clubs. Highly recommend this place!

Wowhills is a fantastic place to base your next trip to Korea! Friendly hosts, great facilities and phenomenal location. We stayed in a 4 bedder, and were actually given two bedrooms with their own entrance. Hongik is the most happening area in Seoul, and Wowhills is pretty much in the centre of it, however still somehow manages to remain nice and quiet when it finally beomes time to sleep.

This guest house is recommended for those who travel on budget but still want a central location and nice, clean facility. The host family are the best you can ask for! Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. Absolutely recommended!

"The best guest house and the best host in korea."
Korea,This was my first visited to a foreign country. I was so worry about room,journey and everything on foreign country.But my friend could place with us.“Wow Hill Guest House”,I had never stayed in a guest house.By the way,this guest house when I met I was a very good first impression,this house was clean and extremely comfortable to stay in,I was pleasingly this house so much.Host is Jin and Andrew,they were really friendly and helpful. The host was very generously introducing about famous attractions and when you had a problem you could ask them,they were immediately help.Wow Hill Guest House has a free breakfast you can make its by yourself,moreover this guest house has Internet, high speed computers, TV, washing machines,and air-conditioning. Staying here likely stay in your home.The most important,the house is near shopping area(same as Myeong-dong ),Hongik university,entertainment center and public transportation.The host will pick up you at the train station when you arrive to Hongik University station and send you to train station or airport when you will come back to your country(you are select as requirement ). Wow Hill Guest House is the best guest house in Korea.If you have a good chance to travel to Korea,I will recommend this guest house.

The guest house is strategically located in Hongdae where it is known for its urban arts and music culture, night clubs and entertainments. There are many good local restaurants and night clubs near the guest house. The location of guest house is also next to the university. We enjoyed a vibrant street in both day and night life. The room was very clean and new. The owners were also very kind and friendly to us. They are also multilingual (can speak both English and Chinese). Staying at Wow Hills Guest House was one of my wonderful experiences during my second time for visiting this country.

I visit Korea often, and I have gone to many other guesthouses before wowhills. Wowhills was absolutely great! My room was very clean when I first walked in, super friendly owners, Jin and Andrew! It has affordable price. And the location was exactly right next to Hongdae University so it’s in a great location! I’ll be back again soon!!
