Stayed here for several nights. Stayed in the dorms. The beds were really comfortable and loved the cute wallpapers throughout. The bathrooms are shared. The common area is cozy. The staffs are very helpful, friendly, and hospitable. They provide free breakfast and coffee every day with free wifi access. The location is incredible. Also the backpackers all are very friendly... More

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
