The only thing that was unpleasant was the pungent smell from the drains in the bathroom. Upon notifying the owner, he placed an odour spray in the bathroom. With that, the smell was bearable.
The location was really great! 2 mins walk from the subway station - jong no sam ga (exit 6). A 15mins Walk, you could easily get to Insadong or Changdeokgung palace. It not a touristy spot, but it is definitely popular locally. The surrounding streets is packed with restaurants. The surrounding alleys are filled with local shops, quirky and modern cafes, traditional tea houses.

Lovely, quiet, small place in the middle of it all.
No complains. Value for money.
Stayed in the female dorm. Nice and quiet accommodation in the middle of the city. A homely place to relax after a long day. Hot showers, simple DIY breakfast. Friendly staff.

Fabulous if somebody is there to let you in!
We emailed ahead to say we would arrive between 11-12noon and was it alright to drop off our bags so we could explore the city. We didn't receive a response to our first email and, following a second email, we received an "ok". Nobody was around at 11:15am when we arrived and we ended up waiting over an hour, despite a kind gentleman ringing the owner at 11:30 and being told someone was 10 minutes away. It was not a good start. Ironically the owner spoke some of the best English out of any of the 7 places we stayed in Korea and we had no such problems with our email requests through booking.com anywhere else.
Beautiful hanok stay in a great location. We had the Korean (futon) double room. The shared kitchen was well equipped and bread and milk were provided. We added eggs and fruit to make a reasonable breakfast. The washing machine came in very useful at the end of our trip and powder etc provided.

For the price we paid, we felt that there was a lack in the basic essentials provided. They provide small towels, but only one big towel for 2. There is no hairdryer too, which seems fine for summer but definitely not in autumn/winter. We also felt that check-in procedures should be improved in order for you to get the best experience out of this beautiful place. Do confirm your check-in time early and before the trip to avoid any miscommunications. Lastly, the ground staff was not very welcoming. It is still okay if the early check-in did not take place, but "I only start work at 3pm" was his reason for not letting us in. He was actually there since 12pm and did not reply despite persistent knocking. That, we feel, is not acceptable and needs improvement.
Good location, close to the subway. The bed was very comfortable and we rested well. Strong, stable WIFI is available within the premise. If you are keen to try sleeping in a traditional room, do give it a try!

Great location for the traditional house experience!
The room was really small. I wish they had done some garden work for the cute little square yard in the house.
Great location with lots of local street food/eateries at night, many cute little cafes, bars, restaurants around this traditional hanok village. It's right by Jongno3-ga station. The mattress was more comfortable than I had imagined. The floor was nicely heated so it really felt cozy after a cold night walk.

Although I requested early check-in, and the exact time was approved, no one was there to open the door. So had to call first and wait. Luckily the surrounding area is so nice to explore on foot, so many cute restaurants and small shops, all in traditional houses with renovated interior. But even after that they were not finished with my room yet, they let me use the bathroom to change and then I head out again first before coming back later in the evening. Probably recheck again even after confirming the check-in time ^^
The hanok was still in awesome condition, the room was cozy, the futon was warm and comfortable, kitchen was well equipped and clean, the team was also very welcoming and helpful. I really liked the place, felt like in the movies. And the surrounding area is now one of the hippest areas in Seoul, full with nice restaurants and shops all still in their perfect shape. It's not accessible by car, but from the nearest subway station it's only around 6min walk, also from the airport bus stop it was around 10min walk.

- only small towels were provided. - the reception is not 24 hour there. So please call him to advise your arrival time (which should be 30 mins earlier before your real expected arrival as he usually comes late - this is from my experience, another guest which check-in the following day, and previous review). - Korean traditional room is a little too small and sleeping on the floor make it hard to stand up. I would recommend the biggest room. - Although the closest exit is no.6, but you'd better get off at no.4 as it has escalator. However, please keep in mind that the escalator can be under maintenance anytime.
Location! The guesthouse locates at Jongno3 saga station which is the connection of 3 lines. So it's very convenience. There are plenty of korean BBQ shops around. And it's only 10 minutes walk to Insadong which is the shopping street.

Room was small (as expected) and sleeping on a futon might not be the most comfortable for some. Could do with more wall hooks.
Location was great, walking distance to the nearest metro station, right in the middle of an enclave filled with local food, cafes and small shops. The main street next door has street stalls that open late into the night.

An excellent Hanok stay that mixes beautiful traditional architecture with modern conveniences.
I had an excellent experience at beyond stay! The beds in the dormitories were extremely private, with nice blackout curtains. The Hanok itself was beautiful, with modern elements, like a rain head in the shower and a nice kitchen, that made it an extremely comfortable stay. The neighborhood is a little hidden gem, where you can see cute cafes and coffee shops right next to extremely traditional barbecue restauraunts, all on streets too narrow for cars with some excellent photo opportunities. I highly recommend this property!

You can stay at korean tranditional house.
It staff are not alway stayed there, so when I arrived there, No one who can let me check in is so i had to wait for about 15 minutes.
Very clean, safety, nice the subway, near many korean attractions, such as Ikseondong, Myungdong, Iteawon and etc.

What a Shame! Disappointed stay
Terrible noises of the air conditioning (the room was the one in the kitchen and no windows), I even took the ear plugs when sleeping but still cannot sleep due to the crazily loud noises which is worse than the one in the planes. No reception and no room services during the 3 days I lived in there. But these are not the most disappointed for me, I cannot believe the owner requested me to score 10 for the hostel if I needed to keep my small luggage in their kitchen for 4-5 hours after I checked out on the same day! I had to agree because I was sole traveller and the first time in Korea， have no other places to store it but the feeling was so bad to be asked to do so. Sorry but I won't score you 10 as it will be unfair for other hostels/cottages/ restaurants I lived in or will stay. If your services is good and you are really considerate to do everything, you don't need to worry about your scores at all. I refuse to do this dishonest score for anybody and don't forget I am your client, you should not have such ridiculous and shamed request to any of your clients. I had travelled many countries like Europe, Australia, Japan, Thailand and Cambodia,etc this is the first time to meet this kind of request, won't choose it again.
Very convenient location, nice kitchen and bathroom.

Quaint Guesthouse - Cool area, good location!
If I were to be critical I'd say it's a bit on the expensive side for what it is - "Guesthouse" in Korean English means "Hostel", and you can get a decent enough hotel for the same price. That said, it was probably worth the extra to be in a neighbourhood we would never have stumbled across otherwise. It's also a traditional Korean building, which was worth a bit extra. One other thing to note - which is not a complaint about the hostel as such because it is unavoidable - be aware that the drains (i.e. the bathroom) smell. That's Seoul for you if you're staying in an older building I'm afraid though!
We really enjoyed our stay at Beyond Stay. The guesthouse itself is quaint, and the neighbourhood is very cool, with a narrow alleyway full of Korean BBQ restaurants (the kind more locals go to rather than tourists). The location is excellent, within a short walk of Insa-dong, Bukchon Hanok Village, and the two palaces, as well as Myeongdong shopping area and Chungyecheong stream. Be aware though, if you're wanting to just go for drinks, the majority of places in the area require you to eat as well - if you're wanting bars/pubs, stay in Hongdae or Itaewon. The guesthouse was nice enough - it has been refurbished to a good standard and has everything you need. The breakfast is help yourself and extends to toast, cereal, coffee/tea etc. which was fine. The owner was friendly, we paid up, and then he left us to our own devices for the next few days - he wasn't around to ask questions about places to go etc., so if you've never been to Seoul before do your homework or visit tourist info. FYI if you're coming in from the airport, take the airport railroad express (AREX), but not the "express train" which is 3x more expensive than the "all-stop train" and only saves about 10 mins). Get off at Seoul Station and change for Jongno-3(sam)-ga. The guesthouse can be a little hard to find - get out at Exit 6, do a U-turn when you come out of the exit and turn left down the next alleyway; follow it round left past the restaurants and turn right when you see the sign for 'Star Hostel' - it's about 20m up there on the left.

Excellent Guest house!
And the in-floor heating was incredibly strong but there was no thermostat in the room to make temperature adjustments. We had to open the window at night to release the heat, which isn't really a problem. The included breakfast seemed to only offer cereal and juice, tea and coffee, but e didn't partake of any of it.
The Beyond Stay is little guest house in the heart of Insa-dong. It is located a few blocks away from the touristy portion of Insa-dong; the long, busy street with the art and pottery stores. Beyond stay is about 4 blocks from there in the heart of local Korean houses and businesses. Along with location, we chose it for price and the recent renovations. There are maybe a total of 5 guest rooms and a court yard. The shared kitchen offered coffee, tea and cereals for breakfast, but we never used them. The room & bathroom was completed updated, but on the small side. The queen size bed took up most of the space and was on the softer side yet comfortable for our 2 nights. The bathroom was large but Koreans standards. The vanity sink was a little small but the water pressure was excellent. The shower had 2 shower heads, which is unusual in a Korean guest house. Other than a bed, stool & desk, the room only had a refrigerator, which we used. There were plenty of outlets for charging devices.
