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 :)

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

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

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
