The hostel staff were very friendly, and well versed in English. They knew the tourist locations at their fingertips, and are able to offer advice on places to visit as well. Friday night rooftop BBQs offer great mingling opportunities for solo travellers as well. Pleasant stay overall!

It's my 2nd time in Korea but it is the 1st time that I stayed in Zaza. If I were to compare the first hotel that I stayed in and Zaza, I would say that Zaza is better. (Aside from the fact that it is just across the street of myeongdong shopping lane) I like the fact that the staff... More

Awesome staff, very helpful and accommodating. Location is also very near the shopping area and train station. Only problem is that the hostel is on a hill...so I wouldn't recommend this for the elderly or those with difficulty walking up inclined slopes. Especially difficult if you have large suitcases to lug up as well. Otherwise is great, reasonable pricing as... More

I stayed at Zaza with my family on our second trip to Seoul. The family room is very spacious, the location of the hotel is very convenient (5-minute walk away from myeongdong shopping street), and the staff is very nice, friendly, and helpful. Complimentary wifi is a bit slow in the room, though. Overall, very good value for money. They... More
