The place is found in the heart of the shopping district. So it will be very easy to find. The place is located above the cafes, trust me you can smell the cafe from a mile away. When you open the doors the smell hits...More

I couldn’t stay too long because of the burning smell of a kennel plus the chemical smell from the cleaning stuff they use. It started to give me a headache within 3 mins that I couldn’t enjoy my stay there. The dogs were adorable. You...More

The dog cafe is not that nice and the dogs aren’t playful. I am a 13 year old kid and was excited about going to the dog cafe but thoroughly disappointed. I saw multiple dogs pee and poop on the floor. It was cleaned up...More

This was my first visit to a dog cafe... the 9000 won entry for unlimited hours within the dog cafe and s free drink sounds attractive. On first sight, the staff really love the dogs and were treating the dogs well. However, after sitting there...More

What an awesome place. I love dogs so much and it was fun to just sit and spend time with all different breeds. You don't really get to pick which dog you spend time with, they more or less choose you which is great. We...More

Coffee and dogs sound amazing in theory, but it's not worth going to. The drinks at the cafe aren't that great. The cafe isn't that cute, it looks slightly ghetto. It's not as lively as I expected either. You don't get as much interaction with...More

I wish I could have lived there forever! Coffee + puppies = all I ever need in life. A must see when in myeongdong. My heart was a puddle of moosh by the end! See our video on YouTube coming soon, search Hodos Collective.

After we walked and tour, we went to Cafe Gaene in Myeongdong. It was adorable. It was a fun experience. You must order a drink first and listen to the cafe's rules and regulation. Drinks are priced from KRW 7,000 and above.

Ive been to a couple of dog cafes in japan and this trumps it by far. They have a large variety of dogs from big to small, and they're all so friendly and warm up to you. The area is big enough to walk around....More

Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood and
undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and

Hi! If I am not mistaken, the cafe either opens 12noon or 1pm. Just go there after lunch just to be sure. :)
