Nine of us stayed at Twins Minbak in July, and whilst we thought that the hostel was clean and efficient, we felt very uncomfortable spending time in the hostel which is very, very quiet and located in an extremely hot building.

Twins Minbak is clean and pleasant but not an extremely busy or exciting place to be. The dorms are priced reasonably. Niice location. Unexpectedly Korean. The bedsheets are ripped but decent and there seems to only be two single bathrooms- one men/one women. They accept both Euros and Swiss francs.
