This backpackers hostel is a distance away from the airport, but has its own neighbourhood that comes to life at night as well! The hostel is a little far from the subway station, but is not too hard to find. Take the subway to Hyehwa Station (Seoul Subway Line 4) and take exit 4. Follow the directions given on this... More

The owner is friendly and can also help you if you have questions when touring the city.They also have discount coupons to some of Seoul's famous attractions.

Great hostel for backpackers or even students for exchange program! I stayed for almost 1month plus! It is very near SKKU, is only like 5min walk and you can grab their korean style sandwich "Issac Toast" along the way.

They even made me coffee when I came in hung over one morning! Being close to Hyehwa station, it had good subway access, and was close to the airport bus stop. Only one transfer required... More
