The hostel was absolutely clean and staff was very helpful. If felt like home the moment I stepped into the hostel. Hostel location was very convenient with many food and shops within the vicinity and direct train ride about few station away from myeong dong station. Overall experience was good and would recommend it to my friends travelling to seoul.

When I was looking for a guesthouse in Seoul, I immediately considered Inside as it's quite accessible online. Inside even has a website too, which makes it look more "reliable" and not a dodgy place to stay. I spent 5 nights there in total This guesthouse is quite strategic location (near the bus stop to the airport, and 3 mins... More

Inside which located quite far from subway but near bus stop, has really nice and calm neighborhood. I like the surrounding on my way when I got back to Inside at night from subway station, because there were so many food stalls and shops. My friends and I booked a deluxe room and it has small kitchen, clean bathroom, linen,... More

I just want to say thanks to Inside so much for making my Seoul Travel incredibly amazing. I spent my 5 days visit here with a really friendly host and also lots of new kind friends. If I have a chance to come back to Seoul city, I still love to stay in here. ^^ Thank you!

I stayed at the hotel for 3 weeks in the "6-bed male dorm" but I was assigned to a 4-bed dorm which was great. Staff was great, There isn't a wardrobe or much space but just enough to lie your suitcase and work with it. There is however a shirt rack with hangers. The hotel doesn't have a safe, and... More

I stayed here for four nights. I had a generally pleasant stay here but I have mixed feelings about the place. The location is pretty good - no more than a 10-minute walk to Hyehwa station (line 4). Also, the airport express bus stop (SungKyungKwan) is only about a 5-minute walk away. Lots of restaurants, convenience stores, cafes, shops in... More

I stayed there for only a week or so but it was more than enough to realize this has to be one of the best hostels in Seoul. Staff was great, super helpful and nice. The installations were great and the price was excellent also. Would definitely stay here again. The overall location is very nice, close to restaurants, bars... More

The location of the hostel is pretty good in a nice area and closeby a couple attractions. My room was a private room with a/c. It was a untidy, unorganized and rather small. Reception was ok. Overall it was ok. I wouldn't come back here though.

We only stayed here for four nights but I can only recommend this place, as it was exactly what we needed and I would gladly have stayed here for longer. The owners are very friendly, they speak fluent English and they were always keen to help us out or give us advice. Our private room was in a seperate building... More
