Phils House is beautifulllll! clean, cheap!!, near the station, TOO NEAR actually like 1-2mins just walk. BUT hotel staffs don't really communicate with customers. front desk always empty. I travelled 22 countries, my first time encountered a hostel where staff is either missing or not so talkative and helpful or recommending travellers with brochures and points of places to go...

잠실 근방 볼 일을 보는데 숙소를 찾는다면 필하우스 추천합니다. 저는 8인 1실 도미토리에 묵었는데 가격도 아주 훌륭합니다. 아침으로 간단한 토스트와 커피를 주는데 나쁘지 않습니다. 전반적인 분위기-방 안이나 주방, 라운지 등 - 는 조용한 편인 것 같습니다. 제가 묵은 날은 아주 조용했습니다. 다음에도 또 갈 것 같습니다. location: if you find a place near Jamsil, it's a good choice. including breakfast:... More

Postiives: it is very accessible to the subway system. although a bit far out from the city centre, the station was just two minutes' walk. room amenities were useful, particularly the little kitchenette, fridge and washing machine. good wifi in room. lots of restaurants and shops across the road. Negatives: we were let down by the lack of cleanliness and... More

This is my first time staying at Phil House. The place is nice and clean and provides free simple breakfast of toast, jam, butter, coffee and tea even though breakfast was not included in our Agoda booking. Location-wise is good as it is located just 50m from a subway station. The staff are friendly and helpful although they can;t speak... More

The area was great, its close to a free children's park and zoo, many shops, food outlets and restaurants. The convenience store below was great for drinks and food and we found the people who...

A very quiet and safe place with everything necessary for a good rest. There is a private kitchennet in some rooms with the gas stove, a large fridge and a lot of cupboards. The utensiles for cooking can be taken on the first floor in the public kitchen where a plain breakfast served in the morning. There are small terraces... More
