Apple backpackers was recommended by a friend of mine and for me it was a great choice. The location is very near to Jongno-3ga subway station. Staff are very friendly and helpful. There're multiple convenience stores around the area too. If I ever comeback to Seoul again, I'll surely choose Apple Backpackers ^_^

I am a single female traveller and felt safe here. The people at reception are really helpful if you ask them questions and to help you book activities. The rooms were clean and it is really quiet (as long as you are not in the room right next to the reception area). I really don't think you could beat it... More

I stay here for 4 night and here is very convenient to go around Seoul. The subway station I can walk just 3 minutes and there are 3 lines that it's very convenient. The room I stay is clean with no any smell and strong wifi signal so I would recommend to all my friends.

We were greated warmly upon our arrival and shown around. We had booked a double room, which turned into a triple one, meaning more space for us. The room is air-conditioned and comes with a large Samsung TV. No idea what channels are available. The bed was very hard but did come with a choice of two pillows. The towels... More

We stayed here in June 2014. Upon arrival, we were told that our room was not ready yet, so the management offered to store our luggages first. The owner's son (I think) could speak good english. As we spent the days sight-seeing, so we didn't spend much of our time in our room except for sleeping and showering. The place... More

Stayed here last May with my friend and I can say that this place is great with friendly staff and nice rooms. Free use of their kitchen area, nice wifi and the location is near the top tourist spots in Korea. Will definitely come back and stay. Didnt have a hard time locating this place too!

Frankly speaking, this review is rather late. I travelled to Korea last May together with a group of friends and stayed over at this lovely hostel then. We stayed for a total of 2 weeks. It was an enjoyable experience and was something alike to staying in a hostel (a comparison for all those undergraduates out there). Also, because we... More

On the arrival day, my husband and I straight away went out to explore Seoul after we checked-in. It was not until we when back to the hostel around midnight that we realise we were not given the remote for aircond. Luckily, one of the ahjushi was still around and was trying to understand what we're talking. After he tried... More
