Great Location !!
Great experience . Near subway, restaurants, shopping area everything close by ! Just one thing, if you thinking to book, there is no elevator this building. Other than that everything was perfect !

It was my first time traveling alone and definitely not the last one ! Nary is such a sweetheart. She is so kind and will make you fill comfortable. If you're by yourself, she'll make sure that everything is okay, give you some tips around Seoul. Plus, you'll meet people from around the world, all super kind. Some times, we would have diner all together to get to know each other, which was awesome. Shout out to Nary, who is amazing !

Best host, best homestay!
I never write reviews for my stays but this one was worth writing... Nary (the host) is an absolute God-send and makes everything about your stay easy, communal and fun - she will help you out with any problem whatsoever. On top of this, the accommodation is kept cozy and comfy at all times. For me, location is key and this was the perfect location too and the location of Hongdae is a cool area for going out, food, and vintage shops; whilst everywhere else is easily accessed by foot or train... Whether you want to do your own thing of meet other travelers this is the place to stay in Seoul :)

Well-located Gem
Excellent location and homey feel make for a wonderful mix of international hostel and home-stay hospitality. While the room is a bit small the location cannot be better and the wealth of knowledge the staff have to offer is invaluable.

Awesome Stay
Amazing stay at Lian Guesthouse. This is our 2nd time staying at Lian. Venue is strategically located at the heart of Hongdae - a food and shopping delight. Although there's no lift to its 4th floor location, the place is so cosy, welcoming and with good food and retail therapy just downstairs that it's not an issue at all. Our room is neat and clean. The host is awesome, helpful, hospitable and very accommodating. Will definitely stay there again at our next visit to Seoul.
