  • It was a very small hostel , maybe that's the hostel are in Seoul. But very helpful staff with many information written around the hostel walls. Big map with activities and how to get there. The location of the hostel is excellent. It's a big plus. Over all in glad I chose this one.

  • The best thing about this place? The staff, hands down! Mia and Ming were excellent hosts. I meet regulars who return to this hostel specifically for the staff! Super helpful and great atmosphere. I would certainly return :)

  • Thank you so much! A great experience at Backpackers Inside! I was so glad to arrive and find out we were staying at such a nice place so close to everything, and the staff were very good to us. Our room was great with kitchen and the computer with internet and TV and heat. The only thing that was tricky was the shower--kind of strange placement and tough to get enough hot water to run it even with the rest of the heat off. I'll be recommending this place to friends.

  • The hostel treats guests like family. That is why you kind of get the feeling the hostel seems a little messy, but in actual fact it's quite clean. When i arrived in Seoul, I didn't know what to do except for stalking kpop stars however, the hostel provided so many things to do that I didn't even get a chance to do what I originally wanted! (just kidding about the stalking kpop stars part)

  • Great hostel at a convenient location for backpackers. Everything is in reach and lots of possibilities to eat out are all over the area. The shuttle bus is very close, so is the next subway station. INSIDE has awesome staff, very friendly and helpful, almost like a homestay kind of an atmosphere! The facilities at the main building are good, the ones at the male dorms are a bit tiny.

  • The wifi was good. The hostels were really clean. And the staff was super nice! I enjoyed this hostel and would go back. Not too far from bus station or subway and there's a lottttt of places to eat around there. I don't eat meat so they recommended some great vegetarian food which was really nice.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
