I stayed in Villa Garosugil for 2 months, and during that time the house felt like my home :) All tasks for the day are clearly formulated in the group chat, and after they are completed, there is a lot of time to explore the city. Sarah was always very friendly and willing to help with questions, as well as spending time with us as a local and providing an immersion in Korean culture. I recommend this host to responsible and proactive volunteers who would like to learn more about life in Seoul from a local perspective

I stayed in Villa Garosugil for two months. I should stay only one but I loved the place and the owner Sarah.
The work is not difficult and well detailed in the staff group. House rules are strict but as soon you get used to it, you realize they were made to make the work easier.
Sarah is so kind! We had really good time together exploring the neighborhood, eating hamburger until late night, shopping or just chatting on the couch. I'm very grateful for this experience.
I hope to see Sarah and all the other friends I made here again someday. s2

I would recommend coming here!
Working shifts are evenly spread through the whole day and your preferences are taken into consideration. All tasks are very clear instructed in a private chatroom, so you always know exactly what to do. The house has a really homey vibe; you'll live together with other staff and guests, which is great for meeting new people.
Sarah is a lovely and straight forward person. Her English is perfect and she's very passionate about the hostel, which I liked a lot. She showed me around the stunning Garosugil neighborhood and we had a really great time together :)

The house is beautiful and Garosugil is a very nice Area.
At first it seems to be a lot, but once you got the work routine it is getting easier. Everything is explained in the staff duty list in detail with pictures.
I enjoyed most to hang out with all the people I have met here including the staff and the host.
It is a great opportunity to get to know Seoul!

The location is great! The house is comfortable and well equipped. The tasks can be challenging, but they will get easier as you follow Sarah's system and understand her vision for her guesthouse. There will be enough time to visit different attractions. I had fun going out with Sarah and knowing Seoul trough her perspective.
