This hostel is 1min. (120meter / 400feet) away from the exit3 of hongik univ. station. (Exit3 is the closest exit you can reach airport express and line no2 in the sametime. Stations are quite big in Seoul.)

You also can see the building from exit3 of Hongik Univ. station. (Please check the building picture and map in the photo section.)
That is why this is 'the closest hostel'.

It is a cozy and bright hostel, a bit small though.

We will give you the perfect service no matter what the price is. We decided to be in this industry, because we love people, especially travelers. Rick and helpers will share everything about us and will give you everything you need. That's this hostel's motto for the customers from the world.

Lee will help you get everything you need in Korea. :-)

Hostel has 8rooms in 2 buildings but 1 reception.
1st building has 4rooms(reception building.)
- We didn't open the whole availability in the hostels.com. So we are quite sure you will stay in the reception building.
However, we should let you know you might stay in 2nd building that is even closer to the same station, if there is overbooking.(Every guest prefered that building because of easier connection to the train station.)

This property is only for foreigners, therefore Korean travelers booking will be canceled by the hostel.

We hope you feel like your home at the closest hostel.

It must be the most reasonable place in this area, in terms of location and price.
