a little hard to find at first (so make sure to print a map beforehand) but overall okay. The rooms are extremely small and you will have to carry luggage up the stairs. Friendly enough owner but he does the washing throughout the night which could clearly be heard from the room I was staying in....not great if you`re a... More

We booked this awful hostel for two nights and it was a mistake. When we arrived the owner met us and gave us the most terrible room I've ever seen. On the first floor, no window, extremely tiny, no space for one person. We asked for child extra bed (and paid for it) and we got a thick blanket on... More

It's a little tricky to get to so print out directions beforehand. You can also call the hostel. We got lost looking for it and the manager came outside to meet us when we told him where we were. It's a very basic room, but that's all we needed as we only slept in the room and didn't spend time... More

I stayed here four nights in April 2013. Easy to get to by bus, but maybe a bit difficult to find if you haven't looked properly into where it is. I knew because I had checked out its location on Google Maps beforehand. Friendly staff and nice room, but of course you have to understand that you get what you... More

Stayed for 10 nights. Very good service and the manager is very friendly and helpful always offering his help to us as this was the first time we went to South Korea and it's winter. The rooms are small but this was not the issue since we are always outside and we just need a place to sleep. The location... More

Stayed there over Chuseok with my mom! Really helpful staff and rooms are neat and clean. Nice location, very close to subway station. Rooms are not big, but enough space if you are just going to be spending a couple of days there. You get towels as well as toiletries, which is nice as other hostels don't always offer that.... More

I don't normally get all that excited over budget hotels. I book them looking for just the basic necessities and hoping for a few extras. Suncity Hostel met my requirements, but I was particularly impressed with the service that Mook, the young manager provided. He spent at least 1 hr over a period of two days helping me figure out...

Spent three nights here this past weekend. Room and bathroom were clean, though there was some mold on the tile walls in the bathroom. However it was not bad and could have been in part due to no window there, though there was a fan. Room size was small, with enough room for the bunk bed and small fridge, though... More
