i always recommend Hato to friends who are heading to seoul
1) cleanliness - I've stayed in Hato back in Dec'13, and when we were returning this time in May'14, both my friend and I immediately contacted Jin. we are both quite particular about cleanliness, and had stayed in few guesthouses where we had to resolved to buying room slippers because the floor did not feel clean. Hato totally blew me away with its cleanliness. Jin does housecleaning everyday, both the room and the toilet. I am comfortable to sit on the floor itself.
2) hospitality - Jin looked after us like her own kids, and made sure to check with us if we were sleeping well, and where were we going everyday. when we returned in May, she was so happy to see us as she said we are one of her first guests. she also ordered food delivery for us on our last day as she wanted to have lunch with us. when I injured my elbow and she saw it, she immediately brought me to the pharmacy around the corner and asked the pharmacist to check my wound and recommend medication. she even paid for the medicated bandages for me.
3) neighbourhood - we love love love hongdae! the area that never sleeps, and the area that has everything. chic and quaint cafes, stretch of little shops, BBQ dinner at 9pm, chicken and beer at 1am, street performances that last late into the night, party spots that opens till sunrise, and most importantly, eyecandies everywhere!!
