We stayed in this hostel for two nights, I can say that I have done a pretty good choice. This property is located in a very central area of the city, adjacent to a metro station about 5 minutes walk away, this is a neighborhood very much alive and full of restaurants and pubs especially in the evening, many young...

I stayed here for 3 nights in a female dorm room (8 bunk-beds). The female dorm is in 2nd floor. All the doors are using passwords so the security is maximum here. There are 2 bathrooms and a make-up room filled with cotton-buds, cotton pads & tissues here for the ladies. The room itself is not too spacious but the... More

I actually got here by accident, but it was one of the best experiences in seoul. We went to see a movie with my friend and it ended late, so we just went here. Even though we got there after 1 am, there were still people sitting arround, having fun, some music going on, laughing. I got a bed right... More

Good location near metro station and plenty of shops. There's a great little wine tavern across the street from it. Rooms are nice and clean. I was in a shared area with private rooms. First impressions were not great, didn't feel welcome on arrival and the reception area was a bit messy. Also, no elevator. Depending on what floor you're... More

Nice location and cheap price. One female staff successfully made me feel not welcomed, which kinda ruined my day, but that did not ruin my whole experience at the guesthouse, because the rest of the staffs were friendly and nice. It's not the best quality, but considering how much you have to pay, I guess you at least get what... More

Very nice and helpful staff, Hongdae is a perfect location, wifi was fast, peanut butter sandwiches and coffee for breakfast were really tasty, people staying there were usually nice and friendly. I would definitely stay there again.

Everything about this hostel was great! The location was only a few minutes walk from the metro, very close to loads of great restaurants. The design of the hostel forced everyone to go through the common room so everyone could say hi to each other and everyone was very friendly. The staff and management were great and even organised parties... More

This newly hostel (2013) is a very cozy and clean place at a great location in Seoul with an awesome staff! I can recommend this place to everyone. We started our journey in South Korea at this place and after travelling around the county for two weeks we decided to spend our last few days here again. When we arrived... More

The rooms are clean, the staff are friendly, the location is fantastic. The 3 bathrooms can be an inconvenience, but I stayed a week and it wasn't a major issue. I really liked the vibe of this hostel, I would highly recommend it to anyone planning on coming to Seoul.
