Although the youth hostel in quite comfortable, the place is huge, sometimes very noisy (used mostly by big school groups) and absolutely not cosy. The ensuite bathrooms are very small but clean. The shared bathrooms are more spacious (showers separated by a glass panel only). The roof terrace is very nice. Located 15 min. walk from the subway station, on... More

Cons: - It's a little bit out of the way and some taxi drivers may not know where it is even after keying in the address in the GPS. It can't be seen from the main road either. But. Chungmuro and Myeongdong Subway Stations are quite near to the hostel (10 to 15 minutes' power walk down the hill). -... More

But during my stay in the hostel, I enjoyed the company of my room mates. I had stayed in a 6 bed dorm. The cleanliness was very good... More

Among the youth hostels I've stayed in this has been among the best (I've stayed in youth hostels in the US, Canada, Portugal), certainly in terms of price and location. I'm paying about $15 a night for a 10-person dorm room and while it's off peak there's only about 4 others in the room. The rooms are cleaned every day,... More

I stayed at Seoul International Youth Hostel in June 2011 with 8 others in 3 Business rooms. The rooms are surprisingly spacious, very clean; the beds (queen + single) are comfy, there’ a television & fridge in the room as well. The bathroom although a tad small but contains the basics. I booked 6 months in advance for 66,000 won... More

Neighborhood Profile
Situated in the center of Seoul, Namsan is Seoul’s most well-known hill for having the iconic N Seoul Tower perched on top of it. It’s not just the picturesque views from Namsan Park that make it a top draw, but N Seoul Tower’s status as a site for lovers from around the world who come on a daily basis to place a lock on the tower’s fence, professing their love to the external world. Nature lovers will be rewarded should they take the time to walk through the often overlooked Namsan Park with its trails of beautiful scenery that change seasonally, excellent views of Seoul, and attractions such as Namsangol Hanok Village.
