Hongdae Guesthouse 2.0 - New

Yellow Submarine was an awesome place to stay! Henry and Kim really went out of their way to help us with whatever problems we had and everyone was friendly. If I ever come back to Seoul, I'll be staying here again!

About Hongdae Guesthouse 2.0 - New

We really appreciate all love and spirit that our guest have given the old original Yellow Submarine!

Unforfunately the owner of the original has decided to build a new house at the location.

At the end of August we did close the original Yellow Submarine.

We searched for the next house to fit our vision and luckly we found the perfect house in the same area. We were lucky enough to find this ( nicer location ! )

house that we have felt had the same spirit at the old to join our family.

We have given the new house a great name and that is.........New Y3llow Submarine!

From this day forward we will not stop trying to make the New Y3llow Submarine the world's Best Guesthouse.

New Yellow submarine hostel (guesthouse) in Seoul, Korea. Home away from homes

If I could quote from one of our guests reviews whose name is Gaelan Taylor from Canada ,

' Staying at the new yellow submarine was absolutely amazing. The

interior decorating alone makes you feel like you truly stumbled

across the most unique hostel in the world! But that's not even the

best part. You know a hostel is doing something right when you plan to

stay a couple days and end up staying for weeks ( almost our whole

trip to Korea actually). The people who run the hostel are truly the

best part. I felt like they would always give me great advice on

things to do or places to eat. When you stay here it feels like you

are staying with family friends. I can say i truly made some great

friends through this hostel. The free breakfast in the morning also

helps those on tighter budgets and we found the cost of the hostel

very reasonable. '

another one from orginal Yellow Submarine

really down to earth and mellow atmosphere; everyone was great. the breakfast area is open, so everyone can join, there are computers there, so i did not bother with my own laptop. there were a whole bunch of bathrooms, so i didn’t have to wait for one. it's only a 5-6 min walk from the subway anyways. overall, great ; i definitely recommend it!

Our New Yellow submarine is a three-story house, with two rooms at ground-level that accommodates six people each, two rooms on the second floor that accommodates four people each (one female dorm) and another room accommodating eight people.

In our basement we have one room for our staffs and a wide open area for relaxation and late night fun. There are plenty of toilets and restrooms in our submarine.

Upstairs we have a table and chairs for chit-chat with your new hostel mates and downstairs we have three computers that are set up Korean-style with free wi-fi. Also downstairs is a dining area with a kitchen, fridge, stove, utensils and best of all free toast and coffee, tea!

A guesthouse located at the heart of cultural, artistic, college area of Hongdae.

(Hongik University),

- Minutes from the cultural heart of Seoul, the location provides one of the most convenient locations to stay in Seoul Korea,

- With close college lifestyle, best place for clubbing, shopping, hanging out with friends, also with other tourists to an exciting evening life.

*Due to the high volume of requests to stay at Hongdae Guesthouse 1.0, we have branched out into a yellow submarine.

As we run two guesthouses, we are making a party once a week to meet each other from both place.

Hostess, Mary runs a travel agency, so you could make

Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

OVerall it was dissapointing as certain things that were advertised on the website weren't delivered upon - such as friendly service and cleanliness. There were too many people, and at times people were sleeping in the common area. When asking for information it seemed more of a burden to give it. There was mention of free breakfast but with the overcrowding it was impossible to get to it. There was not a warm welcome feel and it actually was quite uncomfortable. We won't be returning

Lots and lots of good things have already been mentioned by other travellers. The treasure in this hostel is Henry and Jim, who are excellent hosts, always there, very helpful and make you feel at home. Sure we'll stay there again if we go back to Seoul.
