First time in Korea, well Asia for that matter and I had no idea what to expect. As a westerner I assumed 12$ would secure me a room in a bamboo dungeon with no windows. To my surprise, this place was CLEAN, quiet, and 10/10 location right beside the subway station that goes express to both Seoul Airports (make sure... More

I've been here last December. Despite the cold weather, the warmth from the staff eased the pain of experiencing winter for the first time. It is such a cosy place, great place to meet people from different countries thanks to the public resting area on the 3rd floor. And cleanliness was top notch! I liked how it felt like being...

I've been living in Korea for the last year, and this hostel is my go-to place when I'm in Seoul. First of all, the staff here is fantastic -- they're kind, obliging, and have been very understanding of me on multiple occasions. The rooms are clean and cute and appealing, and I've never had any problems with noise. The guesthouse... More

I loved this place! The staff was really friendly and accommodating. We arrived pretty late at night but the owner told us how to get our key and left us a note on our door welcoming us with some more information. It was a nice room with a big bed. Pretty clean and really close to the station. We asked... More

It's a very convenient hostel. The location is good - just a 5 min walk from the Airport train line and Line 2 of the subway (Hongik University station, exit 3). It's in a university area, so there are a lot of shops, coffee shops and a convenience store (GS25) nearby. You can buy the T-money card at the convenience... More

I have to say that you get more than what you paid for. The place is really cute! .. and also very traditional. You have to remove your shoes before entering the guesthouse.

Staying in Sinchon / Ewha

Neighborhood Profile
Sinchon / Ewha
