I stayed at Backpackers Inside for 6 nights and had a wonderful experience. The hostel is pretty cheap and near a bus and subway station, which is great (take the bus from the airport though)! I stayed in the all girls dorm which was decent. It's small, but it's cleaned every day and there are even lockers to store your... More

Stayed here 1 week and got a 5% discount. The price was very fair (under $20 a night when we booked) Staff are all very friendly (Mia and the owner are so nice and helpful, Eric is very funny, and one staff looks like the korean actor in the Maze Runner movie!) The rooms are clean and comfortable (although in... More

Very friendly atmosphere in the hostel - Aude, Mia and Min are all lovely and very helpful which really makes you feel very welcome. Good facilities (washing machine, dryer etc.), a cozy communal area for socialising with the other guests and a free breakfast in the morning. Will definitely stay here again if/when I come back to Seoul. They are... More

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

Stayed here for 10 nights during winter. Stayed at dorm for 3 nights then moved to bldg 3. If you want to save money in food during winter I suggest you should stay in their bldg 1 because that's where they serve the free breakfast. :) The staffs are friendly and very accommodating. Jiyeon helped me a lot in terms... More

Positively, with regards to this, Minyoung and her wife offered us a free room upgrade which was incredibly a very... More
