This hostel is clean, comfortable and well located. We stayed in the twin room with bathroom, situated in a building apart from the main hostel. It was very quiet so perfect for couples and longer stays. The room was more like a typical Seoul apartment, so great value for the price! The location is perfect for exploring Myongdong, Namdaemun, Dongdaemun... More

I made all of my friends inside of the common room. It's right next to the entrance and has a very inviting atmosphere to it with it's couches and pictures all... More

The place is very comfortable and clean. Breakfast is included. You can even fry yourself an egg and there is real filter coffee (not just instance coffee). The owners also speak good English so communication is easy.
