After dealing with somewhat unprofessional like conducts from other hostels in the area, Chingu provided a pleasant atmosphere and hassle free environment to stay. Its location was easy to... More

I booked a deluxe four mixed dormitory. I arrived a day earlier due to my schedule, so I moved in to an eight room dormitory for a day. I do not see the difference between both rooms. The four room dorm is way much smaller than the eight dorm, I can understand since it has lesser bed. But it has... More

Great hostel! It's within a few minute walk to the central Hongdae area with tons of shops, great international restaurants (we found a few italian restaurants that were worth the visit), and fun bars (just watch out for the Koreans only bars, they won't let in Waygooks. Nothing like a little old fashion racism). It's also about a 5 minute... More

In their website, it is stated that our chosen room is located in half-basement, so we expected accordingly. I arrived on the day of my... More
