Just PerfectPosted Oct 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
If you are looking for a nice, quiet neighborhood away from the crowd but yet not too far away from the shopping and tourist attractions, this is the perfect place to stay. Mr and Mrs Yoo were very helpful and gracious hosts who went out of their way to make things comfortable for our family. These included home cooked breakfast and useful information that made our stay a very memorable one. Thank you!

Close too places of interestPosted Apr 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
We like the convenient location and the friendly service. The comfortable room though the share bathroom was little inconvenient and too cold in early spring or winter

The Yoo's FGH is very conveniently located next to Changdeokgung, and other places of interest like Insadong, Samcheongdong, Bukcheon, Gwangjhang Market, etc. Wifi is readily available once you stepped into the courtyard. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The owner Mr Yoo and wife are very friendly and helpful. All rooms are equipped with a minifridge and TV and aircon. Making it easy for tenants to keep abreast of what's happening and to store their purchases like kimchee, cosmetics that require refrigeration. Access into Guest House and Room is easy. We are likely to stay at the YFGH when we visit Seoul again.

Noisy, essentially a hostelPosted Feb 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is essentially a hostel, the rooms are separated by a sheet-thin door. The rules say no smoking but our neighbors, a family of what sounded like 15 Chinese people next to us (probably 4 in actuality), didn't seem to respect that rule, and as they came in at 11:30pm like a herd of elephants, the smell of smoke permeated to our room. So your stay will be impacted by the neighbors in the other room, be warned. Aside from this the place was okay, clean and comfortable, but for an extra $10 a night you could stay at a nicer place closer to town, and if you're really trying to save money you could stay at an actual hostel for half the cost. The surrounding neighborhood has a lot of bars and street food so that was cool. The host of the place is very nice but we didn't get to talk much. Another plus is that the airport shuttle goes very close by and that was very convenient, as we stayed here on our last night.

It is convenience if visiting to palaces.Posted Sep 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
It is a nice experience staying in a Hanok house, especially sleeping on futon beds on floor but it is comfortable.

Cozy and convenientPosted Jan 28, 2012 on Hotels.com
The guesthouse was perfect for us because we would like to experience the culture at the same time have the comfort and convenience of modern life. We thought that having to sleep on Japanese futtons would be uncomfortable but boy, did we have a good night's rest during our stay for 3 nights. Accommodations include free wifi, free use of laptop and widescreen television. It's just a few meters away from Changdeokgung palace so you're spared from riding transportation. The only catch is, the bathroom is outside but it's just a few steps away from the room. Besides, I think it's more hygienic that way. The traditional tea making is a must try although it has an extra charge. Their Hanboks are really beautiful and you get to learn some of the Korean manners while drinking tea. It's also a plus that the owner is very nice and very accommodating. She even provided us with directions back to the guesthouse in Korean so that we can show it to the taxi driver.

Interesting place - difficult to findPosted Sep 23, 2011 on Hotels.com
Quaint little place with small courtyard in the center. Hostess was very nice. The place was hard to find. Address doesn't match hotels.com address. It is: #19 Yulgok-ro 10-gil. If you're standing with your back to Changdeokgung Palace, look to your left. The street goes to the south just past the gas station. The guest house is on the left, tucked back between the Farmers Barn and Guest House Korea. "Continental breakfast" consisted of do-it-yourself white bread (toaster available), jam and instant coffee. Convenient location. You can start at the Palace and take the hop-on, hop-off bus from there. Pay the driver when you get on your first bus.
