  • Great for backpackers. Close to exit 3 of Hongik U station which is good between the airpot.

  • 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.
