We stayed here for 2 nights and it was fine but would never stay here again as a traveller. It mostly seems to have long term stayers here so not a fun atmosphere. The staff weren't very friendly and the kitchen was tiny with room for only 4 people to sit! The bathrooms were fine but again not the cleanest.... More

I stayed here for one night this month (July 2015). Staying in a single room but sharing bathroom option. Arriving very late (past 10:30pm) the receptionist had waited up for me, she was friendly and helpful on arrival and took me to my room. The room itself was very basic and the bed was very small but comfortable. Staying on... More

Hi D_Daisy, Thank you very much for leaving us your review. I am so sorry to hear the Saturday night K-road noise has kept you awake/woken you up. We do have more quieter room on the other side of the building. A bit too late, but If you decide to come back for a night, just let the reception know:)!... More

We stayed for a short time in the hostel, as we soon found a van to live in, but it was definitely a very nice stay. There is a clean kitchen with lots of kitchen materials. The location is ideal to explore the city and there are many nice (more alternative) coffee and lunch places in the neighbourhood. But what... More

If you want a place to only sleep it s a good one, only 155 for a dorm it s not too expensive. Now if you want to wash and dry your clothes you got to count 12$ more every time. If you want to cook just forget about it the kitchen is way too small and not furnished. Internet... More

After living in an 8 bed dorm in Base for a while I fancied a bit of a quiter week or so. Found this place on here and it seemed okay. It's not the most social hostel but a nice tv room was a decent place to relax and unwind for a bit. I got a private room to myself... More

I was living for 8 weeks in this hostal and the ticks are common in some rooms, even when it´s raining there are leaks from the roof and you can get wet all your stuffs ( I saved a video and they didn´t do anything about the leak and we were in winter )

Euntaek Y, Duty manager at BK Hostel, responded to this review

Hi Nacho, sorry to hear about this. When did you stay at the BK hostel? We haven't heard anything about leaking problems. Also, we can not find your booking (October-November). Are you sure you stayed with us? Please, let us know! Thanks in advance. Cheers, BK hostel More

My partner and myself stayed there for almost 2 months. We had to share a twin room, as no long term price is available on double bed rooms! The location is ok, but be ready to be waking up by police and emergency, as well as night life! Showers and toilets are in the same bathroom, and always pretty dirty!... More

We are really sorry to hear that you were not happy while staying with us. The cameras and rules are in place for the security and safety of everyone in the hostel and if the rules are respected then there is surely no need to worry about them. We do wonder though, why you stayed for two months in a... More

This hostel is clean, in the city and quite modern. (The staff are a bit rude though) But honestly, you get depressed of this place and it's way overpriced. The kitchen is ok but all over the place (including the kitchen) are lots of angry notes like 'Don't touch the food, buy your own!!!' and so on. All the other... More
