About the Homestay
I would love the opportunity to host you and your family/friends. I have traveled extensively and I love to meet people from all over the world. The warmth of my "hosts" will never be forgotten. I would like to pass on this type of experience to you.
I have been hosting international students for 2 years and I have enjoyed it immensely. I was approached to expand this hosting beyond students so I am now looking forward to making your travels to Seoul affordable, equal in quality to a hotel stay, and provide as much or as little as assistance as your require.
I will introduce you to many facets of seoul life that cannot be obtained from a stay at a hotel. See Seoul through the eyes of one who was born and raised in Seoul.

Changhun is a very open minded and nice person. He made me feel like i was in my home. He makes breakfast, lunch and dinner and we also go out to restaurants together. I really enjoyed my stay with him. He deserves a 5 stars. I recommand him.
Changhun is a wonderful host! He welcomed us, carried our luggage to the top floor (after we were 1 hour late) and took us to Korean BBQ restaurant to start the evening right. He showed us typical way how Koreans spend time with each other and how to enjoy BBQ Korean style. After the dinner he politely asked if we had further plans and then drove us to the bridge over Han river where we enjoyed the fountain/light show. We enjoyed the strawl on the riverbank and shared some funny stories with him. In his house there are a lot cool tech gadgets such as 2 VR systems, state of the art air-conditioning and speaker system. He used to study art so there are a lot of his very inspiring artwork around the place. Our room was very cozy, he provided fresh towels for us and the bed was out of this world comfortable (Caution : You may not want to wake up :) . The room had its own private bathroom with shower. He prepared breakfast in the morning. Needless to say breakfast varied during our stay so there is always some interesting noodle dish to try and he prepares delicious fruit youghrt every morning. After the breakfast he starts you off with some tips on how to spend the day and some basic Korean phrases to help you get around.
We felt the warmth of Changhun's presence during the stay and we're hoping for his dreams to open a hotel/hostel at Jeju Island come true.
Take care Changhun! And we hope we meet again someday - hopefully at Jeju Island with you as our host ;)
Best guesthouse in Seoul
I've stay with Changhun for one month and he was very friendly and kind, we became friends and went to many places together.
He helped me in my korean language study, and took me to ski resort and show me how to ski and i really enjoyed it.
And he took me and my friend to yacht trip on the Han river.
The location of the stay is very good and the facilities are amazing.
I was able to watch soccer matches in around 60in TV screen and he gave me PlayStation to play Fortnite
If you plan to come to Seoul either for study or to have fun i highly recommend this host for you
