We had a very pleasant stay at HaTo guest house. This was our first experience staying at a guest house, and we wasn’t sure what to expect, but we felt comfortable the minute we walked through the door. Jin & her husband were waiting for us. Check-in was a breeze, we were handed the keys to our room in 1 minute. Prior to the trip, Jin sent me a link to a video that clearly showed how get there from the airport. The location is about 15 minute walk from Hongik station. To get to where all the actions are, just follow exit 9. At night, this area is full of students from nearby universities. There are so many places to eat and shop. Ehwa university is just 2 exits away.
There are about 6 rooms at the guest houses. Our family of 4 stayed there two times (we went away to Busan and came back) at two different rooms, and they are basically the same, each equipped with a double bed and a bunk bed. The place is super clean. You take off your shoes as you enter the house, and put on provided slippers. There are two washing machine downstairs for free use. Jin provided all the detergent. There is no dryer, but you can just use clothes rack outside in the back room. It dries really quick.
Breakfast is included in the price. Simple, just French toast , cereals, milk, orange juice, which was fine for us. There are bakery nearby if you want to get other stuff. There’s a pub and a grocery store around the corner. There’s a communal kitchen, but I never saw anyone using it.
Jin speak very good English. She made our kids felt at home. We took off for Busan for a few days, and she kept the luggage for us and delivered them to our new room when we came back. When we left, she and her husband drove us to the metro station. We definitely recommend this guest house for anyone, family, young or old.
