  • It was less like staying in a hostel and more like staying with old friends. The staff were great, they were friendly and informative amd often went out of their way to help guests. It felt like I'd known them for ages and not the few short days I stayed there. At the end I didn't want to leave.

  • For sure this is the best hostel located in Korea. The staff not only provide information but also they are very kind. They made my experience in Korea even better.

  • Definitely going to return the next time I go to Seoul! It's at a fantastic location, really! Good food accessible everywhere, and the subway is a short walk away. The staff are so nice and helpful too. I give it a 10/10!

  • I call it treehouse. The atmosphere were homely and staff were nice. I can see that the owner have been backpacker himself so there is no missing anything.

  • Stayed 5 nights. Pros: Super clean, great staff, awesome location. Cons: Only one shower for girls and one for boys, as well as noisy neighbors a couple nights. The walls here are THIN! I'm a heavy sleeper - once I'm asleep nothing wakes me up but my alarm (sometimes) and there were a couple nights where I was woken up multiple times because of people slamming lockers, practically shouting, drunkenly trying to open my room door instead of theirs. Other than those fools, highly recommended!

  • The staff is really nice ! Great place to stay, I really enjoyed my stay there ! (However, in summer it might be difficult to sleep in rooms without air conditioning...)

  • Backpackers inside is very well located in Hyehwa. City centre accessible by foot or bus, lots of shops and a few bars around. Minyong and Mia are great hosts, very nice and helpful. Rooms are comfortable, bathrooms and toilets clean and well equipped. Nice atmosphere with other guests in the "living room". Would recommend to anyone who asked.

  • Backpackers Inside is very well located near interesting places in Seoul. The staff is awesome, friendly and with good advise. The rooms and the whole place has a "happy style". The beds are comfortable. You'll have free wifi. There is a clean shared bathroom in which you'll find a washing machine and even a hair dryer if you need it. You'll have a shared kitchen too and you'll be able to take a free breakfast every morning. And if you have enough time, you'll certainly meet awesome travelers

  • This hostel is absolutely amazing! Clean, well kept and with many basic amenities the owners had thoughtfully supplied. It was cosy and the owners are very friendly and helpful! I made many new friends there and had a delightful experience. If I go to Seoul again, I will definitely stay here!

  • The entire experience was absolutely wonderful. I loved every minute of being in the hostel. The staff was friendly and laughed at my terrible jokes while the other guests were amiable and liable to mingle. It was easy to find and in a super convenient area of the city. When it was late the other guests were quiet and respectful and I had no trouble sleeping.
