I came too early at this hotel but the staff allowed me to enter the room that has my booking. It is a budget hotel that is perfect for the traveler because of low prices. I can choose to have breakfast bread / cornflakes, milk / coffee / tea. I go there in the winter but I do not worry... More

When Sam told us that the room was small, I did not expect it to be that small! It is only roughly 12 square meters which can be a problem for some people but for some reason my friend and I were ok. We stayed for 10 days and we never had any problem or issues with the spaces. I... More

It is a budget hostel where we had small bunkbed and selfserve kitchen for breakfast. As with all budget hostels, it is basic. But I loved coming back to my cosy warm room with hot shower and spacious common... More

I stayed in Kimchee Gangnam for about 10days and it was a real good experience. Sam the manager was very helpful and friendly. In his spare time we went out a few times with other guest and this helped me to mingle and get to know more people. The place was also very compact and priced really well and was... More

It was a great place to spend a few nights during our trip to Seoul. We stayed in the dorm, the beds were confortable and the bathroom rather clean. We travelled there in October last year (yes it was a while ago) and the manager Sam is one of the nicest person I've ever met in the tourism industry! The... More
