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

I stayed at this hostel for one night due to an extended layover, and it was awesome! I paid for the single room with one bed and a bathroom, and it was extremely affordable. I didn't expect to do much sleeping so it was perfect. The room was small and clean. The bed was a full, with two pillows, and... More

The guesthouse near of the attractive place. Easy and advantage for all backpacker if you stay here. You can easyly walk or take subway to the place you want to visit. Their stuff also friendly and helpful For muslim, don't worry stay here. They have kitchen, so you can make your own food. Just bring your 'samak'/'taharah' soup. http://sabuntaharah.com/

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
