Stayed at this hostel for 8 days and 7 nights. First 4 nights were in a Triple room. It was spacious enough for 3 people all with luggages. The beddings, comforter and pillow cases were all in clean and excellent condition. Beds were firm and it was just my kind of bed. The Triple Room has it's own bathroom (with... More

Price for... More

One of the things I was looking for in a cheap place was the cleanliness. This was by far, the cleanest motel/guesthouse I have ever been to. Because it was newly furnished, I managed to get a 10% discount. It cost me around $36 a night, ($40 was the original price) for a single room. I had a fairly large... More

This is a decent motel if you just want somewhere to dump your bags, shower and sleep each night. Located 5 minutes away from a temple (forgot the name) and about 10 minutes from the subway Line 3 and airport bustop. Lots of shops nearby like GS25 and such where you can buy snacks/drink. I had a single room and... More

This is probably the cheapest tourist motel you can find in Seoul. Location: bus stop, airport bus and subway are all in walking distance. There are plenty of places to eat and many tourist attractions (palace, insadong, bukchon village) are within 10 min. walk. However, we had difficulty finding it the first time. It is next to Banana backpackers and... More
