I just returned back from Seoul doing my very first solo trip for almost 3 weeks. This is not the first time im in the city but it's the first time at Yellow Brick. I've tried other places for a cheap price and surprisingly this place would be something that value every cent that you paid. The building itself is... More

交通唔係好方便,無咩配套,但系幾整齊乾淨!不過,間房真係超級無敵細,同埋張床好硬。the room is extremely small but quite clean and tidy

I was nicely suprised. Ok room was kinda really small and wifi was not properly working but hotel was modern, nice, cool and the roof terase was just stunning. Near the hostel is the main palace and just like 10 minutes by walking is downtown area.

Yellow Brick hostel was recommended to me by a girl friend living in Seoul now. And I am happy to have followed her advise. Though the bathroom of the 8-bed room could be a little cleaner (people didn't always withdraw their hair after shower), the hostel staff was nice and welcoming, and was of a great help for organising our...

Another budget hotel for the week stayer. Excellent customer service & facilities. The kitchen was a good spot to plan your days as it's great to meet other travellers Only complaint was the room was a little on the small side, but in @ this price point, your're not going to get much bigger. Also they REALLY need to extend... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was excellent, easy to get to from the airport and close to Insadong. I booked a dormitory, but I was kindly upgraded to a single room for free. The single room was excellent, with a nice view. I will happily stay there again.

Stayed there for 4 nights in a 8 bed male room. It was good for me as I met different people from different places. The location, which is located near Jongno 3 (sam) ga station, is just a 5 - 7 minute walk from the hostel and it is just behind Hotel Ibis. From there, the places around Seoul were... More

Good place to stay, in a great location. Dorms are spacious enough for 6, the bathroom can get a little messy with the number of users. The common room is located in the basement, so socialising with fellow travellers is limited to little. The facilities on offer on the other had are off the show, from printers, laundry to free...

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
