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,...

i stayed at a 4-bed mixed dorm and it was just myself in the room in both nights. beds and the room were clean and tidy. bathroom and shower were also ok. the only thing is that they don't give you a shower towel. they give you a small towel which can barely dry your face. but overall nice staff...

This is a nice place to stay and is located in a central area of Seoul. The staff is helpful and really thorough when giving you directions to sites to check out. You have to hike up a few flights of stairs with your luggage, but worth it as the accommodations are well maintained and clean. The beds could be... More

This is an awesome hostel. If I'm coming back to Seoul, there's one thing for sure which is that I'm gonna stay here. The location is great, the facilities are nice, and the price is great given the location and facilities, but what really sets this place apart is the staff. They're the most genuinely friendly and helpful people I've... More

What a sweet little place! Nice and clean and cool location. Sparkling showers and loos. The place felt very safe for a lone female traveller. Also v.handy for me as a kosher traveller, as it was near the kosher shop and close enough to walk to services at the synagogue. Staff happy to help in any way they can.

It's hard to get a good night's sleep here - the walls are thin, beds not super comfy and people like to party here. The staff watch tv so guests cannot and there is little privacy or security except for the two front doors being locked (we couldn't lock our room while we were away). One night we couldn't shower...
