We loved our stay here. Clean and affordable. Room was small but beds were comfortable. Clean bathroom with hot water. Only complaint is thin walls and some other guest were annoyingly loud at 4 am, but that's always a risk at a hostel. We can't say enough good things about the staff. All were very friendly and helpful!( especially Bruce)

I came here during the early months of 2014, and I gotta say, I think it's a cosy hostel! The staff are friendly, helpful, and the accommodation's clean too! I like the wooden floor of the bathroom too, and it ensures nobody will slip. Additionally, every room is named after a major city from around the world, reflecting the international... More

This hostel is very conveniently located in Itaewon, one of the foreigner areas in Seoul. It's about a 10 minute walk from the Itaewon subway exit and there is an airport pick up pretty close to the front of the building. The rooms are pretty tight (I've stayed in the mixed and ladies dorm), but it's a bed to sleep... More

Location is good as it is just a good 7 minute walk from the subway but it's located on the 4th floor, which is quite troublesome for someone with a heavy baggage especially that there are no escalators available.The price is affordable. I spent around $50 for 3 days stay. The rooms are neat. Comforter, blanket, pillow, small towel and... More

This hostel was suggested to me by a friend. The manager was particularly flexible with me, as I changed the reservation details many times and he didn't put up a fuss about it. We didn't have to give a down payment which was also nice, especially considering we didn't see it before arriving. The hostel was very clean and organized,... More

neat room and nice atmosphere in general, specially the young workers were very kind. But the older guy was very tough and picky. "hey, did you give back the laundry basket?" was his peculiar way of saying good morning ㅋ

It was my first time in Seoul, the whole trip was planned in a hurry and I booked the hostel a day prior to my flight. The location is really good, the hostel being on the main road of Itaewon district. However upon my arrival I got lost and the staff kindly came to pick me up from where I... More

This Hostel was by far the worse I have stayed in while in Korea. The bathroom had fleas, the room didn't have a door, the other guest in the Hostel were rude and extremely loud until 3:00 a.m. in the morning, there was a guy passed out on the couch in the morning when we left, the room was dirty,...

Arrived at this place in the afternoon. Getting there was easy. Just the Airport limo and your like 50 metres away. The stairs to the 4th floor can be challenging if your carrying many bags. The staff was very friendly and caring. Place was kept. clean. Many thanks to generous owner for sharing some Korean and Japanese sweets. Also you... More

I believe this is a family-run establishment and the staff, especially the university-age son, was gracious and helpful (so give him a raise, Papa!). My friend and I shared a single, which was tucked away in a quiet part of the otherwise very social hostel, so there is something for both worlds. The bathroom and kitchen area were fully stocked,...
