Air Bnb Review
Just spent 3 nights at Lodge82 and it was a good stay. The apartment is actually the top floor of the family home. It has a private entrance so you can come and go as you please, a nice living room plus the bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom only has a single bed but we slept on the heated floor Korean onsol style which was fine and nice and warm. The shower is really powerful, there was fast wifi and the tv had plenty of channels. The apartment is a little hard to find but Sa Nam does send detailed instructions. The location is good, a quiet street but only minutes away from a main road with plenty of restaurants and convenience stores. The metro station is around 10 minute walk and there are parks just a little further. We walked to the excellent Cherry Blossom festival from the house. Sa Nam speaks excellent English and we met with her a few times as she checked in to make sure everything is OK. But it was her Mum who mainly looked after us. Her English isn't so strong but we got on fine. Breakfast was toast and jam and her Mum also brought us a pot of tea when we came in from the cold in the afternoon. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and it was very good value.

Stayed for 4 nights in early March. Place is easy to access via 6017 (stop airforce hall) or 6008 (yeongdeungpo market), easy access to Singil station into the inner city. Angela and her mother were really friendly, felt like staying at a friend's home. Tickets to WAPOP were really close and I finally got to see AOA live :p
Angela was helpful with directions to both airport and wapop hall. Will be back soon if AOA performs again! :p Thanks! Let me know if you visit Melbourne :)
Stayed 2 nights as a package to watch WAPOP concert on 11 Jan. Host was really friendly and she showed us the direction to the concert venue and places to eat around the neighbourhood. Since it was winter, we slept on the heated floor which was a new experience for us. The house was very cosy and breakfast is provided every morning by host's mother who was very nice and kind. We had very good seats for the concert and enjoyed ourselves very much, watching BEAST on stage ^^ Overall, the stay was very pleasant. Host and her mother were very welcoming and friendly which made us feel at home. I would definitely stay there again if there is another WAPOP concert. Highly recommended!!!! - Siok Hian
