The 5 of us stayed from 11th - 16th Oct 2013. We had 2 rooms and were both upgraded to a 3 bedded and a 4 bedded. My mum and me stayed in the 3 bedded which is spacious enough for us as the extra bed is really useful for packing/unpacking from the luggage. The ensuite room has a mini... More

My mother (who is Korean) went to Seoul for the first time in a decade or so this past April. She was supposed to stay with family so we didn't setup any accommodations for her. She decided to stay a little longer and ended up at K Hostel. She wanted me to write this review because she was quite impressed... More

My travel was with My beloved wife and 3-years old great daughter. We stayed at 3rd floor with 3 beds a room. The beds were spacious, but the room itself was small, can open 2 big luggages but we can not sit freely :-). For us, it was acceptable. The bathroom was spacious, complete with washer and shower plus hot... More

The location of the hostel was pretty near the subway, dongmyo station and the bus stop. It's a 10min walk to dongdaemun market. There are a few mini mart nearby if you need to buy toiletries. They only provide toilet rolls. The towels they sell are pretty small so I recommend you to bring your own. The bad side of... More

It was my first time in Seoul and I didn't know what to expect. I was w/ 2 friends for this trip. The only thing I know is that it would be cold and that the city center would be far from the airport (allocate 1hr 30mins by train). Although transportation is seamless, it is worthy to take note since... More

Staff are nice and helpful. The first room we were in, it sucks. The wall is mold and disgusting. We asked for room change. It's a bit better. But the floor drainage in bathroom was very slow! No shower curtain in bathroom, it will get wet everywhere. I personally won't recommend this place, although the price is cheap.

This hostel is perfect for its location. It's just 2 stations ahead from dongdaemun, one of the biggest shopping centres in seoul, and near from here there are quite a lot of restaurants that worth trying. The location was not really difficult to find. But there are some problems here. And i can say the main problem is the staffs.... More

Some of the staff are very nice and helpful but the manager here can be rude at times and is only nice if he wants to be. He can be very arogant and unprofessional.. It is very noisy at night and the hostel fails to enforce quietness at night. The staff drinks a lot and invite their guests (people not... More
