Guest Review #2 (From John via Wxxxu)
Cecilia’s flat could not have been anymore perfect. She provides you with everything you will need for your stay and even offers advice on areas to check out during your stay in Seoul. Her place is in a prime location with countless cafes and shops in the vicinity, and less than a 5 minute walk to the subway station. Definitely a relaxing place to stay with the bright sunshine and cool breezes coming through the windows. Hope to stay here again sometime during my next trip to Seoul.

Wikipedia already knew the attraction of Hongik Univ (=Hongdae in Korean)

The area is a mecca of young art in Korea. It is common for Koreans to deem Hongdae as the center for art in South Korea.
Hongdae is known to be a home ground for many young artists because of its many infras; such as little theaters and venues. For example, the Sangsangmadang, an eleven story building that houses a cinema, live performance hall, art gallery, and a studio, is known to be a huge, popular landmark in Hongdae. Hongdae is often regarded as the best place to enjoy various art and contemporary culture in South Korea. The area holds various cultural items with art galleries, theaters, design shops and cafes. The area provides musicals, concerts, and performances by independent artists and mainstream entertainers as well.
Hongdae is also known for its mural street. The street is located around the Sangsu Station and contains various murals and graffiti throughout.
Every Saturday (except in winter) flea markets are held on a certain playground that is close to the university. The flea markets are called the “Hope” and “Free” markets. It is a fledgling craft market of things made by students and recent graduates. These days offer different wares made by the students that attend the university, mainly because the university is an art school. It is known to be the ideal place to purchase low-priced art from up and coming artists in South Korea. Hand-made accessories, dresses, special cases for mobile phones, and even calligraphy artworks are all sold during these days. For many years, this free market has been well known throughout all of South Korea as a primary and necessary place for Korean artists.
The area is also home to hundreds of bars, restaurants, boutiques, and nightclubs and draws revelers from a wide range of backgrounds, in particular university students, ESL teachers, and tourists. Most bars are open throughout the night to allow patrons to return home by subway. There is also a large collection of independent coffee shops and cafes in the area that seek to attract the local young adult population. The area is also known as South Korea’s capital for the underground rock music community, and live music is widely available around the bars and clubs.

– NO LOUD NOISE : This flat is typical villa with neighborhood. So noise such as loud singing after drinking or too much loud talk to disturb next door’s sweet sleep is not welcomed.
