It was my first trip on homestay and I had the best time at Hyoungsiks. The whole family is very open, friendly and helpful. The mother is a great cook. You should really try the breakfast, I fell in love with the handmade cheese. I had the best time at my stay!
My visit to Seoul turned out to be one of my best trips I've ever had in my life, largely thanks to Candy House! The family is very nice, knowledgeable, fun to be around, and attentive to guests. As other reviews mentioned, their breakfast is super delicious, and they even cooked us some delicious dinner when all guests are around, which was one of the best nights I spent in Seoul.
One of the caveats is probably the distance from the center of Seoul. However, I don't think it is a deal-breaker - Line no 1. and 4. are super convenient and you can go to a lot of points of interest in Seoul within approx. 30-40 minutes. The Changdong neighborhood itself is a lot of fun - lots of good local restaurants, cafes, noraebangs, etc. which you wouldn't usually find in travel guidebooks.
I also had a great time hanging out with other guests, who are truly interesting people from all walks of life that I would otherwise not have a chance to meet. Also, HyoungSik and his wife had great patience with my not-so-great Korean ... if you are looking for opportunities to improve your Korean skills, or authentic homestay experience with a lovely Korean family, look no further :) I would definitely stay there again.
Nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour à SEOUL; Ils nous ont réservé un accueil très chaleureux. Famille disponible et ouverte, nous avons eu de très beaux échanges culturels, de bons conseils de visite et de l'aide pour les réservations.
Très bonnes prestations : grand et confortable appartement proche de la station de Métro, Excellents petit-déjeuners coréens.
Notre future résidence lorsque nous reviendrons à SEOUL
The family was super nice and friendly, and I really enjoyed the home-cooked meals as well! If you are looking for a welcoming and comfortable place to stay, I highly recommend this homestay!
I had a very wonderful time at HyoungSik's home.
Even those the location is quiet far from the centre of Seoul, I would choose this area for its spacious and quiet environment. Very close to Bus and Subway station.
If I had the chance to return to this area, I would definitely go hiking in the nearby mountains.
Breakfast is prepared every morning. Indeed very delicious food.
HyoungSik and his family is very helpful. Especially when I was settling down, they provided valuable advice on transportation and even guide me on departure as well.
Overall The homestay environment is very good considering this is my first time.
I had a really good time staying with HyoungSik and his wife Mannock. Their personalities , comfortable and spacious room, nice breakfast, there was nothing I didn't like. The environment around the apartment and Chang-Dong station is excellent as well. Also I was lucky to spend some time with their son and other guests, who are all funny.
They say they mainly use other websites but it's no problem to book on this site. Actually I found lots of photos and thank-you messages given by guests from all over the world.
