We have been staying here whenever we visit Seoul. Good wifi connection, great location, hot water, basic & clean room and friendly staff. Recommended if you just want a cheap room to sleep near metro station.

It was my first time traveling to Korea and my first time staying at a hostel so take this with a grain of salt. Pros: Dongmyo station is in a convenient location to travel to many different areas Close to the station Free Wifi and Computer access Private rooms available with fridge Cons: Clean, but really worn down and messy...

We booked for nights there, and wound up extending three more. The location was great, the free breakfast was sufficient, and the room was an okay size. If I was staying in Seoul again, or had a friend looking for a hostel, I would recommend this one.

We had a very comfortable stay here. We stayed in a double room (bunk beads) with a private bathroom. It was quite small, but very clean and neat. It's located close enough to a metro station. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The twin room we booked with two separate single beds, a fridge, fan, two small windows and a tiny tv was perfect for what we needed. We were spending most of our time in town anyway and it's pretty easy to get here from both the airport (the stop for the airport bus is a 5 min walk away) and... More

I had booked the hostel for 10 nights when I am travelling in Seoul. After first night, I decided to withdraw from the hostel (forfeiting my money) as they switched off the air-conditioning after 12 midnight (IT'S SUMMER!!!) and the fan (not of much used) provided is too noisy (due to vibration) when put on the desk. I could not... More

What can I say about it? It's a very cheap motel and the location is very convenient, not far from all the restaurants and shopping malls. It's ok to stay if you just want a cheap place to sleep over for a night and so. Be sure to get ready for the early shuttle bus ride.

I had a 17 hour layover in Seoul. The advertisement of a "shuttle," and the lack of the "shuttle bus" is partly to blame for a missed flight... I booked this hotel because booking.com told me there was a shuttle bus, and it wasn't next to the airport. "Cool!," I thought. "I can explore Seoul, and get back to the... More
