-It is the fastest one available(giga wifi), but instead it's NOT unlimited, so please refrain from watching videos or streaming music, and make sure to turn it off once you get home Interaction with Guests My mum and I host our guests together. And we love communicating with you, learning more about your culture, and sharing our stories!
Either I or my mum will be here to meet you in person for a smooth checkin, and give you a little house tour and some local recommendations. (We will also try our best to be able to say goodbye in person.)
We believe that by doing so we can not only welcome you with more warmth but also build a mutual understanding and respect for each other :)
*One thing you should remember: this is not a hotel and we are not your tour guides/concierges, just your Airbnb hosts for your comfy stay in Seoul :)
**P.S. I speak fluent English, a bit of Spanish, and my mum speaks a bit of Chinese(Mandarin). And we both speak Korean as our mother tongue. The Neighborhood Hongdae is undoubtedly the very centre of Seoul. The lively and vibrant neighbourhood is filled with the coolest cafés, restaurants, and bars in Seoul.
We also have a beautiful, breezy park right next to the busy and crowded part(shopping area by Exit8) of the neighbourhood, perfect for a little stroll or a relaxing picnic (with bottled beers and takeout street food).
To be more specific, Hongdae is largely divided into three parts, "Yeon-nam", the 'hip' place with so many pretty shops and relaxing cafés next to the beautiful Yeon-tral Park,
"Seo-kyo", the most crowded place by exit 8 of Hongik univ. station with countless shopping spots, restaurants, clubs, etc. and last but not least, "Sangsu".
Monohome is in between Yeon-nam and Seokyo, so you can feel different vibes at the same time.
You will be able to experience the quintessence of the life in Seoul in our neighbourhood for sure. Enjoy! Getting Around Nearest Public Transportation:
