I stayed in this place from May 29 - June 2, 2014. Every traveler goes to Korea with a purpose, so I will base my review on my purpose, which is shopping and eating, at the level of a hostel: 1. Location. The hostel is located at the heart of the Ewha Womans University district, and is only a few... More

Averagely, it is just nice. It is 5-10 minutes walk to the Ewha Subway Station. However, it is a small slope to walk to the station, when we are tired with whole day walking, it is a bit hard to walk on this road. Breakfast provided are toast, eggs, instant noodle, which we need to prepare ourselves. The rooms are... More

Upon arriving in this hostel, you may thnk it is sketchy, but yet again this is great for those backpackers who just want a safe place to live. The common area downstairs is great for WIFI access and internet and breakfast may be not your five star continental one, but you have to cook your own food with toast and... More

Near Ehwa subway exit 2 with 2mins walk and near airport bus. Breakfast are great. The main complaint is that the sound proof of the wall is too thin and foul smell from the toilet. If u looking for cheap accommodation and great location this is the one.
