We had a pleasant stay here. With only 5 days in Seoul, we spent most of our time out sightseeing. The hostel staff were friendly, the room was clean and of good size, and compared to other accommodation we had seen was well priced. The location is very close to the metro lines, and getting anywhere from there was very... More

Both my friend and i stayed in a single twin room for 5nights in this hotel. From our personal experiences, we shall say that this hotel has provided a very good stay for us, considering the fact that its actually very much affordable and cheap. 👍 The hotel provided us with directions and even include in pictures on how to...

This hotel is a very nice place to stay as their staff is very friendly and the floor heater is well functioning especially during cold weather. It's very near to the train station as well which make us no problems in travelling to places around Seoul. Convenient stores are just opposite the hotel also. But small improvement require, for example,assist... More

Stayed in this hostel earlier in the year with my girlfriend. First up, massive thank you to the hotel for e-mailing directions to the hostel from the local subway station, with pictures included. Without them, we would of been in trouble. In regards to the location, it took some warming too. I will admit, I did not know what to... More

Since we didnt pay a lot for this accommodation, we couldnt ask too much. It wasnt too clean, both the toilet and dirty bed, with spider webs next to the aircon. You can simply find the toast, jam and eggs for braekfast. The staff was nice, location was good, but we will pay more to have a cleaner room some... More

Though the location wasn't easy to find, the staff were extremely helpful... to even come to pick us up on the street while we couldn't find our way to the hotel, put a new roll of toilet paper on our doorknob after we left a note, and to give us breakfast while we had to leave before the breakfast time......

It was an OK stay for us. Limestay is a budget hotel so we cannot ask for more. Pros - location is ok - local restaurants are surrounding; you can give them a try - there's one convenient store nearby - room is just ok - staff are very helpful and they like to communicate with guest - free wifi...

The hotel does not provide towels, mats,toothbrushes etc. When I moved the bed, there were lots of trash. I could find pubic hair in the toilet before I moved in. The toilet seat does not flip, the shower sucks, you're basically spraying water on the floor, it floods the entire toilet. Infrastructure and location is also bad.

my partner and i stayed here for a week in their double room and it was filthy, i understand that it is meant to be a budget 'hotel' and their are no international standards for hotel cleanliness, but i think all accommodation regardless of its star rating should be reasonably clean. everything was dirty, from the floor to the walls,...
