We had a great stay with my friends at Inside. We requested to stay on a dormitory at the main building at the time of booking but due to certain situations we were been offered to stay at another building. Positively, with regards to this, Minyoung and her wife offered us a free room upgrade which was incredibly a very... 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

The owner is friendly and can also help you if you have questions when touring the city.They also have discount coupons to some of Seoul's famous attractions.

It is very near SKKU, is only like 5min walk and you can grab their korean style sandwich "Issac Toast" along the way.

They even made me coffee when I came in hung over one morning! Being close to Hyehwa station, it had good subway access, and was close to the airport bus stop. Only one transfer required... More

When I checked-in, Minyoung upgraded my room reservation from a 6-bed room to a single-bed room, which was great for me. I can say, however, that the single room is... More
