If you are looking for cheap, basic accommodation then this is ok. Located on the outskirts of Myeongdong in an area dedicated to building supplies and tools. Narrow stairs to reception area, wifi only in this area, which also provides hot and cold water machine, communal fridge available. Rooms were small, with ensuite that was serviceable but could do with... More

Stayed for 1 week. It was clean, and staff was friendly. it was close to myeong dong shopping area so cold return guesthouse to unload the shopping. The airport bus was not too far from the guesthouse. There was free wi-fi! Only thing was having to carry the luggage down the stairs but for the price, it is already very... More

Okey it's not easy to find it, eben because the direction given in the old website are wrong. Once you arrive on the main street ask for the Shinan bank as it is in the small street next to the bank. It's cheap about 30€ per night but don't expect too much. Romm was never cleaned during my 3 days... More

We stayed for 2 nights and another 5 nights after venturing to other parts of Korea. The showering facilities is acceptable. Bed was reasonable. Walking distance to insadong and myeongdong is good. Hot water and coffee/tea is provided. Have to climb the steep stairs though, but the staff would be there to assist

The staff is so helpful and they helped us to solved many problems! :) The room is small but clean and tidy, and TV is installed. Coffee and water is also provided. The hostel is near to the metro station. One disadvantage is that no elevator are available and you have to climb some stairs.

It was my first ever Korea trip. So it would be very crucial for us to make it a memorable & comfortable trip. We chose Kimchee Myeongdong for its convenience near the subway (euljiro-sam (3) ga) and a walk able distance to the heavenly Myeongdong and of cos they offer a really affordable rates for us for 7nights.

We stayed a total of 4 nights in December 2013. Central location and about 2-3mins walk to/from the subway. The room was very small, as expected. The water heater worked (useful for cold winter in Dec) but shower water did not drain quick enough. At times there was weird smell coming from the bathroom. Good that we had a tiny... More

We booked directly with the hostel and was promised a reply within 24 hours. The reply never came and I was nervous because it was a weekend stay and other hostels were full. I sent an email and luckily my reservation was confirmed immediately. The hostel was very run down. Located on the 3rd floor, with a narrow staircase and... More

After booking via Agoda, we got an email from kimchee, with directions and a note "Our reception opens at 9am and closes at 11.30pm. If you are arriving earlier than 9am or later than 11.30pm, please let us know in your reply so that we can take note." As our flight reaches Incheon Airport at 10.35pm, I replied to the... More

Stayed here for 9 nights in late July/early August. The Kimchee staff, especially Derrick, are helpful and friendly. Derrick is fun and often stays after closing to visit with guests and hang out. The guesthouse staff will do your laundry for you about $3, which was very useful since we were visiting during one of the hottest times of the... More
