This place could be really great if they cleaned and showed a more care to the property. POSITIVES: the city outside is very noisy. Car honks are a regular thing and at night it gets even noisier. The windows are very thick and do a great job keeping the noise out. Breakfast is provided but don't get your hopes up.... More

The location of the hostel is really great - not on the busy streets in the center filled with partying people all night long but a couple of minutes aways. The interior is new and nice but as mentioned before, the room itself smelled really moldy and the ventilation isn't enough to dry the air after you take a shower,... More

The rooms, while small, are comfortable, and the air conditioning works well. Ensuite washrooms are quite convenient. A small but, nonetheless, nice breakfast is provided -- seasonal fruit, white bread... More

Love the Uncle!! What an amazing place. Little rooms and could possibly do with more ventilation but the kindness and hospitality shown more than makes up for this! Great location (5 minute walk from central Hongdae - 24/7 area, young crowd, clubs and loads of bars/restaurants/street food) and easy to get to from the airport (get the metro to Hongkik... More
