We only stayed for one night but if we go back to Seoul, we will stay here again. The price for the location and variety of free services is outstanding. Rooms are basic, but right outside of your door is a bathroom/shower, washer, dryer, sink, and kitchen. Its technically shared with the other room on your floor level, but we... More

Our room was small and we woke each morning to an intense early morning heat (room on front side facing street). Air con didn't seem to be operational in the room. Only other complaint is that although the bathrooms are cleaned regularly they need a 'proper' clean as were a little bit grimy. Value for money was fairly good. Staff... More

The beds are quite basic, but is a good place to sleep. It's quite hot in summer so either will sleep with an open window (noise Seoul) or a noisy air-con. The breakfast is basic but enough to prepare u for a full day of activities. In case you don't know what to do, they will tell u the standard... More

So this was the first time I have ever stayed in a hostel before. It was wonderful. I knew it was a good location when I booked because I studied in Seoul one summer. It is about 5 minutes from Sinchon Subway station. Sinchon is a University area, so at night there are hundreds of places to eat, drink, and... More

I stayed here for 1 week on single room in 3rd floor. Staffs were very kind and they cooked breakfast everyday for guests. I think value per price is excellent. Guest lounge in second floor is very clean and nice. I had coffee and watch TV every night with other guests and staffs. Thank you John :)

One of the best hostels ever stayed, with friendly atmosphere, kind staffs, and most of all, amazing breakfast. Temperature outside was negative 15 degree at that time, but inside of the hostel was warm with korean style floor-heating system. Coffee, Green tea, TV room, towel, hot and cold water, breakfast, everything was for free. They also arranged DMZ tour for... More

The hostel is located near Sinchon Station. You need to walk at least 2 streets away to reach the guesthouse. Despite the signage you probably won't notice its the entrance until you ring the doorbell. As the guesthouse has no lifts, you will have to carry your luggage up the stairs which will be an issue for elderly or people... More

We stayed in a twin room. It was clean, big enough, quite warm with the floor heating on. There is a smaller than small kitchen and living room, but it's very good for socializing. The workers were awesome!! One of the best I've ever met in hostels...
