  • I loved this place. Plus meeting the wonderful owner, Mr. Ko, is something you're not about to forget. He is so nice, and funny!

  • With Hey Backpackers 1, you certainly get what you pay for. The price is great, the service is not. The host was absent and I had to wait to be let in (as did every other person who I witnessed to arrive). When he finally got to the hostel he seemed quite gruff and even a bit displeased to be bothered by my presence. One good thing I can say about Hey Backpackers 1 is that it is in a very good area of Hongdae, centrally located amidst a ton of things to do both during the day and at night.
