Enjoy your stay in Seoul with low costs!
*FEMALE ONLY

Nice, wide house located not too near or far from the downtown area.
We have good access to transportation (two bus stops and two subway stations close to the house) and we have several bakeries, eating houses, 24-hour Convenience stores and supermarkets near our house.
We are 20 min away from Jongro, 20~25 min from Myeongdong, 20 min from Ewha and Shinchon, 40 min away from Gangnam and 30 min from Hongdae.
If you have other place you would like to go, I could tell you the easiest way to get there or tell you about other places for shopping or site-seeing that maybe you haven't heard of.

We have a very friendly family. Mom is an English teacher, so you will have no problem communicating. Little brother, who is only 10, is really enthusiastic and cute. He loves people and can also speak Chinese. They are so fun and lively. I am sure that they will make your Home stay experience special; like a real family :D
I am currently studying in America, but I will be supporting and helping, answering questions so that your trip will be convenient and fun!

We currently have three rooms available.
The first one is located right next to the front entrance and toilet. It is a bit small with a dresser and bed.
The second one is located across the living room and next to the kitchen. It is a bit larger than the first room and it has two dressers, a desk, a bed and books (Manga and novels)
Both Beds fit 1~2 people. If two people want to use one room you can just tell me. If you are uncomfortable with sleeping together or if you are travelling with more than 2 people, we provide sleeping mats and blankets.
The third room has a queen sized bed for two people. It has its own private bathroom, so you will be able to use that bathroom by yourselves if you choose to stay in that room!

Bathroom are always checked and kept clean. So don't worry! And you are free to use the kitchen and the laundry machine! Unfortunately, we do not offer any meals - usually not even a light breakfast - as my mom is a working mom, and she can't be home all the time to take care of meals. We apologize! If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me ^.^

*Please contact me if two people would like to use one bedroom.
*We understand that some people may have a budget, so if you find the
price over your range, we may be able to adjust the price. Just ask!

We will try to be the best hosts for your stay :)

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a nice day!

    My homestay with Surhi was more than comfortable! It’s a cozy apartment in a convenient location. She and her son are incredibly kind and I felt very welcome in their home. I almost feel homesick after leaving Seoul, that’s how much I loved my experience. :) Next time I take a vacation, I hope to book a room here again.

    It was my first time staying at a homestay and I was a little bit worried of bothering the family but there was honestly no need to! Eventhough seohee was busy with her exams in the states she managed to prepare me for my arrival in Korea and answered all questions patiently. The room I stayed in was lovely and I felt comfortable (: you will stay with her mother, brother and maybe another guest. The location of the homestay is good, too. It’s near by a subway and bus station and it’s easy to get around Seoul. There are also some shops, restaurants and cafes very close to the home.

    Location:
    The location we stayed in was convenient for us because It's within walking distance to the train station which takes us to all the places we needed to go in Seoul.
    To get to the house we did need to walk up a steep hill but in my case I think it's all worth it.
    Local:
    There are lots of nearby restaurants and small shops that isn't swarmed in tourist so it's great of you want to be in a more local environment.
    Room;single bed with toilet within:
    The room we stayed in and the toilet within the room was clean and tidy. There was enough space in the closet to put my belonignings and my friend's things too.
    I recommend!

    Dong Ocks and Surhis homestay is large, comfortable and very well located, about 5 min
    by walk to Hong Kong St. (line 3). There are a few minutes by subway to many tourist attractions.
    Varied choice of restaurants, cafes and markets in the neighborhood.
    But the cherry on top here is the host, who is very helpful and so friendly.
    I would not stay anywhere else if I went back to Seoul.
    Don't hesitate. Just go ahead and make your booking :-)

    I made the best decision on booking this property! I usually book hotel for international travel since I want to be comfortable and I want an accessible location. Since I am on a tight budget this time, I originally wanted to go with AirBnB luckily I happen to see a link for HomeStay.

    Surhi, the owner's daughter, respond quickly to our questions and was very helpful. We even got to talk to her on a video call before we fly out. Her Mom, Dong Ock, our lovable Unnie, is the BEST HOST EVER!! We come home late every night but she is always excited to hear what happened to our day. On our last day she even took us to a tour to find authentic korean food. Her son, Alex is the cutest! :)

    The house is clean and spacious. It felt like home!

    The location is close to subway and bus. There is also bus to and from the airport that stops close to the property. It's uphill so you better do some cardio before you go. Just kidding, its not bad at all. There are a lot of local shops and restaurants in the area too. Close to shopping centers and cultural areas. YOU CANT GO WRONG :)
