- “ This hostel I think used to be an old apartment building turned hostel. I booked a private 3 bedroom for my friends and me but the room came with four beds. Close to Hongdae if you are in a clubbing mood. The room smelled like cleaner which I guess I prefer over a rank smell. Quiet too. No real common area so if you are traveling with friends it is great but if you want to meet people it's not that kind of hostel. Average facilities and nice staff. ”

- “ You have very little space or privacy in this hostel. People stay up all night and the staff - or rather the one guy that works there (??) does not try to keep it a quiet or respectful space for all. We eventually were able to switch into a private room or we would have left. The staff/ guy offered no guidance on the area. There was only one shower. Definitely don't stay here unless you are interested in partying, talking and drinking all night - literally until 6 am. Good for some I suppose. ”
