During my 8 nights from end of DEC'13 to JAN 5' 2014, the place was very nice. I went stayed with my 2 younger sisters. We decided to book this place as it was not too far from the subway station and it was so easy to find food stalls around Jongno-gu vicinity. Upon arrival as well as departure, we... More

I stayed from March 24-March 30, 2014. It was really easy to find and very near the subway, airport limousine bus stops, convenience stores and restaurants. There is also a pojangmacha near so some men could be walking a bit drunk, but they do no harm. I never felt unsafe as a solo female traveler. I even went outside around... More

Been stayed for 8 nights. A very comfortable guesthouse, room is clean, location is good as near to the subway, staffs are friendly, facilities are good enough, staying in Apple just like staying at own home. Thanks for apple backpacker's care in these 8 nights ! I definitely will go back to Apple Backpackers if visit to Seoul again

Nice place to stay . Close to metro . You can walk easily to palaces and Insadong . Also there are many convenience stores nearby . No elevator , so please don't carry too heavy bags . But the staffs are willing to help you well .

Easy to find and close to subway station Jongno-3-ga exit 6 (be aware if you bring huge luggage as there's no escalator at this station, you'll have to drag those heavy stuff using stairs). Near 7-Eleven, which make our life easier in so many ways. The only downfall I have for this place is there's no elevator, but luckily the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. It was a great stay! All the basics that you need, location smack in the middle-walking, bus or even train. 24hrs stores are a short walk away. It may get noisy sometimes in the wee hours as the area has lots of small eateries with merry people but it didn't bother me much. The... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. There are no lifts but they help u carry your luggage - even if they're 25kg each. lol. It is merely 3mins walk from the subway station. There's food everywhere and it's near arts locations. Quieter part of the neighbourhood with good cafes nearby. The room was big, spacious and clean! And super... More
