  • A friend and I came here just for a short winter trip and the experience overall was wonderful. We were originally going to stay in a 6-bed room, but was moved to a more private location due to renovations in the main building. Location is awesome because it's on the same subway line as all the main sites such as Myungdong. Because it's also in a university town, the area is also good for eating/shopping. The staff was super friendly and they cleaned the rooms daily!

  • During the winter the bathrooms are very very very cold (windows are not good), but they're clean and you have everything you need in them, even face cream! Host is awesome, helped us with many details about the travel! Area is good, full of restaurants, but not many bars and clubs. Really close to the metro station and bus from airport! Good hostel! :D

  • I stayed in one of the deluxe singles which was like having my own tiny apartment. The deluxe rooms are in a different building from the main hostel (about a block away) which was fine for me but for someone who'd like more insight and advice on the area and things to do/places to see/etc that might be a bit problematic.

  • The hostel is in a great location located near a university and plenty of transportation options. The food options in the area are plenty and cheap! The staff went outside of their way to help with planning your way through Seoul throughout the day and was extremely friendly. Free breakfast of eggs and toast was included in every morning. Would definitely stay again.

  • Ths hostel was really awsome. I have been to different places but this one is by far the more enjoyable place I have been. The staff is super friendly, will always try to satisfy your needs. Free breakfast every morning, common room is convenient with a big flat tv screen, good music in the background, computer. Also, the hostel is located in a good place in Seoul near a subway station, there is a 7Eleven just around the corner, many restaurants. + The hostel is have really cheap prices!

  • Excellent stay...would come back anytime I'm in Seoul. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable...fantastic assistance with what bus,train, subway to catch. Very clean and the staff always willing to help. Eric's Thursday / Friday outings really good at bringing a group together in a casual way that experiences a night within the area. The single rooms are small...but you're not there to be in a room. Once your bags are dropped and you hang in the common area or hit the city all is most well. :)
