I have stayed for 4 nights with my girl Casey at the Inside Backpacker Hostel and it was the best choice I could have made! Mia and Minyong are great owners, very helpful and gave you good advice. The hostel is very clean, cosy and has a nice atmosphere, not only because it is full most of the time and... More

Inside is a friendly, welcoming place with great facilities, an amazing atmosphere and awesome owners. If you don't stay here you are doing travelling wrong....They have free breakfast, free wifi, a guitar and an Eric. There is nothing else you need in a hostel...

It's all about what a hostel should be. Very friendly and helpfull staff, a nice common room to meet people with a hostel guitar and free breakfast. All that for a very fair price. You can feel that Min who is running the hostel was traveling a lot by himself and he knows what is needed. If you go to... More

I was about to book another hostel, but changed to Backpackers Inside since I saw some very cool pictures of it. It was a right decision as the hostel is very cozy. I like the common room where you can comfortably chat and listen to other travelers' stories. Mia and Min are so so friendly and helpful (I like your... More

I was welcomed by a very nice girl who told me about seoul and the hostel. She gave me a key to my locker... More

I spent 2 nights in this well located guesthouse and it was very good! The only problem is that we didn't have hot water in the bathroom. Except that it was clean and the staff pretty helpful. Moreover the bus for Incheon Airport is very close!

Best guest house ever! Very clean, super helpful owners (they helped us with absolutely everything we needed, always with a smile!), great neighborhood, one of the best value for money in Seoul, I totally recommend it and will definitely come back here! Mia and Min Yong thank you for everything, you're the best!

This hostel is one of the best I've ever been to. The facilities are great (I stayed in a dorm), the wifi works, the breakfast is free and -what's most important- the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I would come back any time :)

Backpacker Inside located at strategic area. it's near with Hyewa Station (5 - 10 minutes walks); Sungkyunkwan university, so definitely everyday it's crowded with college student but it's fun. This hostel is easy to reach from airport by MRT or airport bus. I stayed at Backpacker Inside for 5 nights with my 2 friend. It's very cozy place and feels... More
