From the airport, take the Airport Railroad until Hongik University Subway Station. It is direct and there is no need to change.
It takes 10 minutes from Gimpo Airport and about 1 hour from Incheon.
Once you are at Hongik University, go out at exit 1. The hostel is just 5 minutes away from the exit. We suggest you to check the map, since it's easier to see than to explain.
Chingu Guesthouse is located in a small alley between Mod's Hair (a hair salon) and a CU (convenient store).
