  • Rick, the owner of the hostel, proved to be both helpful and kind. I set my feet in Korea for the first time that day and Rick warmly welcomed me to the guesthouse. His guesthouse was clean, well-equipped and the wifi was fast. What's there to complain? :) I would highly recommend the guesthouse to my friends.

  • Great hostel. Rick really worked hard to make my stay in Seoul enjoyable. Clean, nice rooms, comfortable, and cool people. Also the pub next door is fantastic. I highly recommend staying here, it is at a perfect location right out of the metro stop and a near walk to the Hongdae clubs.

  • We stayed in the twin studio apartment and it was excellent, was planning to stay one night but ended up staying four and would definitely stay there again... the owner Rick really looked after us and the apartment is decked out with all the extras... washing machine, fridge, kitchen, etc. The location is so easy too, right next to the station on line 1.

  • Amazing hostel! Rick is the friendliest young man we've ever met! He's a cool hostel owner who cares about his guests. The hostel itself was cozy, well located and safe, less than a 5m walk from a major Seoul metro station. Air conditioning for the hot summer nights worked like a charm, and the fridge was loaded with 2-liter bottles of water at $1 a piece. He even had noodles for that late night snack! Best hostel in Seoul, nothing negative to point out. Thank you, Rick! Taeba~ See you soon
