Seoul Tripping: Nanu Guesthouse PINK

Good evening or good morning?

Many of you have asked me about my accommodation during my stay in Seoul and even though

I have stayed at various hostels during my past three visits, Nanu Guesthouse has been the best

hostel out of all of them so far.

I chose the Hostel for his Pink Hello Kitty design,it’s central location and great reviews on bookings.com and airbnb.com!

Without further ado, let me introduce me to the hostel:

NANU

It is located in the heart of Hongdae, surrounded by cute coffee shops and only a three minute

walk away from Exit 3 of Hongik University Station!

The Hostel offers dorm rooms, twin rooms but also private rooms for a good

prize considering that you have free (perfect/fast) WiFi, a clean shower/restroom with towels, a common room

with a kitchen and a digital door lock protected by a password, I was definitely more than surprised about the low daily rate. The staff are all very friendly and always reachable through LINE (or one phone call away).

Now let’s take a look at the adorable rooms and interior design, shall we?

I wanted to steal that pillow so bad :’D

People always look down on hostels but I’d hope that my readers and fellow low budget travelers

will see hostels as an opportunity to meet new friends, exchange travel stories and also learn more

about another culture. Not to mention that his hostel is super cozy and even tough people came in

after me when I was already asleep inside the room, they kept quite and kept their voices down if

they were still talking to a friend or on the phone.

The staff as already mentioned is really kind, all of them know English and inform you

about events or free sight seeing insiders in Seoul – one even invited me to go to a university festival

where Mamamoo was performing but unfortunately I couldn’t make it.

They also sometimes organize small events like, a dorm party or cooking dinner all together (grabbing a drink together at

a bar close by) so staying at Nanu Guesthouse has really paid of, I made so many new friends

and also learned a lot about what it’s like to live/work in Seoul from the owner =)

So, if you are looking for a comfortable, save and cheap place to stay in Seoul, Nanu Guesthouse is

definitely the place for you! It also only takes one hour by train or airport bus to the airport so you

don’t have to worry about struggling with your heavy luggage.

I hope this post was informative, if you want more info on prices etc, please check Nanu Guesthouse’s website here:

Enjoy your future stay!

Seoul Diaries: Hongdae aka handsome/beautiful people everywhere!

ハロ~

Hello!

久しぶりに日本語で書こうかな~て(笑)

So I thought about writing in japanese again for once haha

韓国でも日本人をたくさん会ったけどやっぱりあまり日本語をしゃべれなかったです。。。泣

Even though I met some japanese people in Seoul I wasn’t able to talk to them much…

韓国語は少ししかはなせないから友達がずっと手伝ってあげました。汗

Not to mention that I can’t really speak korean so my friend did all the work. Thanks babe!

では~!今日はちょっとだけHONGDAEの話をしたいです。

So today’s topic is: Hongdae!

Hongdaeには大学の人気スポットです!

It’s one of the famous regions none for university students so everything is pretty cheap and full of young people.

今から取った写真をみんなさんに見せてあげます~

So let me show you some pictures!

時差ぼけのせいで朝五時に起きた私たちはHongdaeで散歩に行きました。w

Thanks to our jet-lag we were wandering around Hongdae starting 5 am. Drunken Korean people are hilarious!

Our hostel (kimchee hostel hongdae) was about 10 minutes away from the main street so definitely check it out!

先ずは朝コーヒーを飲めなければなりませんでしょう?

Well, after our early start we needed our coffee break at ‘The coffee bean & Tea leaf’.

美味しいアイス抹茶ラテを飲みながらこの日のスケジュールを決まりました。

We discussed the schedule for the day over some delicious Macha Latte. YUM!

この所でライブがたまにあります!

I bet a few of you know this spot already (did anyone watch ‘A Gentleman’s dignity’ – you guys know this place.)

A lot of street musicians perform here and they are GOOD! Lord have mercy – I saw one performance and was mind blown.

Angel in Us coffee shop which was open for 24 hours – we didn’t go there once.

Too expensive for devils.

アァ~!ここね。。。お金が無くなっちゃった 笑

安い洋服やさんはたくさんあるから仕方がじゃなかったです。

This place is…one of the reason why my money is gone and my closet is overflowing with new outfits….

BUT the stores are really cheap just be aware that most of them only accept cash and no credit card 😉

この吉舎店はとても可愛くて美味しくて安い店です!

Cafe Moin was such a great place to spend our morning at! Plus the bartender was kinda cute.

ランチはJam Bong!

I wanted to eat Jam Bong since I had to watch Jihyo eating it on Running Man.

DELICIOUS seafood with noodles and it wasn’t even that spicy! Try it!

とても長い日でしたから夜になったらすぐ練っちゃったです。w

The day pretty much ended with us passing out at the hostel around 7pm? haha

じゃ~!つぎのブログはたぶんMyeongdongのことになります。

Well, the next post will be about Myeongdong so stay tuned!

またね~!
