We stayed in Yellow Brick Hostel from the 10th July - 17th July. Overall it was pretty small, but still a welcoming atmosphere. They provide T-Money (subway card) rental, socket adapter rental, and all for free! You just have to pay a deposit, but you will get back the full amount :D We were a group of 4, and we... More

I stayed here alone for only one night in a 8-beds female dorm. It was quiet at night at first, as there were only 3 of us and we don't know each other so there was no communication at all which was fine for me. However, late at night when I was about to go to sleep, other guests starts... More

I really enjoyed my recent stay at the Yellow Brick Hostel. It was really easy to find and a short walk from the subway. The staff spoke English and was very helpful with directions. The room had all the essentials. No complaints. I'd definitely recommend staying here when you're visiting Seoul!

The hostel is extremely hard to find. Rooms were just okay. Staff was just okay. They did have some good recommendations though. The place as a whole just lacked a little something something. I thought the area was sketchy and pretty boring. Good for a shower, a place to sleep and a piece of toast for breakfast in the morning.

Byong Joon, thank you for making our stay awesome! This is a great hostel in a great location with amazing staff. The room was a good size and it was clean. The best part of my stay was my interactions with the staff members though. Byong Joon was a big help to me. He recommended places for me to visit,... More

The location is great (in Insa-dong) in the heart of the city center, but a little to find. Only 3 minutes walk to the Palace and Royal Shrine, 15 minutes walk to the fashion area (Myeong-Dong). This is a 9-storey new building with roof-top garden, a common lounge and a spacious kitchen/dining room. Free breakfast, free use of washing machine.... More

First, staff very nice and helpful. Second, the room was clean and comfortable. But, the location is difficult to find, it is no sign and any notice can provided on the street. We would suggest put some notice on the end of street.
