I originally booked for single private room for 50k won and they gave me their family room for the same amount so that's really nice. Plenty of space for a single traveler. Pillows and mattress are nice and the AC is working fine. There is a security code for the door which I think is pretty standard. Towels, soap and... More

The main reason why I choose this place as because of the distance from Myeongdong shopping district. The room was clean and tidy, they provide basic amenities like toiletries, towel, and toilet paper. If you are planning to bring a large suitcase, be prepared to carry it as this place is stairs only. Fortunately, the staff was super helpful, they... More

What I love about this place is that it looks quite small from the outside but has a really nice interior. The reception area itself gives a comfy feel for the guest and a spacious twin room for 2. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Overall, we had a really nice stay here.

We booked for Zaza but we were transferred to Global Hostel instead. It was actually fine with us as it was our first time, we agree and I just don't want to argue, though I book/reserved for like 2months before our stay in their hostel.
