I booked a twin sharing room & I was traveling with my sister and we had 2 medium size luggage. The room is extremely small. There is no space to walk after putting our luggage. Toilet is very small. I will not recommend this place to anyone & we will not stay here again the next time we visit Seoul.

The room is in white tone, which makes it really bright and comfortable. The room is bigger than other same priced hostel. Great location - within very near walking distance from Myeodong Subway Station, Family Mart, bakery, twotwo chicken and other restaurant just on the same street. Friendly and nice staffs giving their best service.

We stayed in the place from November 7 to December 3, 2014. Zaza backpackers has simple rooms with basic amenities. However, its strong point is its location, and its staff who are friendly and accommodating. We like the homey atmosphere. It is like staying at the home of a relative or friend.

very friendly staff, enjoy stay here! This hostel is located nearby Myeong-dong and Euljiro 1(il)-ga station. It also very close to Nam San Tower <3 When you walk to hostel, you can see the view of Nam San Tower. Two of us can have the family room and it is very comfortable!

Thanks for choosing our place and leaving review here. It's really appreciated. I'd like to make just one correction, Zaza is located at nearby Myeongdong Stn, on line #4. It is just five minutes away distance. Eulijiro 1(il)ga-Stn is little bit far with heavy luggage. We recommend you to take Myeongdong Stn. Then you can see the Namsan tower on... More
