My younger sister and I stayed here for 5 days 4 nights, and it was WORTH IT! Location wise, the hostel is just a few minutes walk from Hongik Station (Line 2 and AREX). Initially it took a while for me and my sister to look for the place but the map they provided helped us a lot. There are a lot of coffee shops, bakeries and a convenience store along the way so basically you wouldn't get bored in the area.
The managers are really great too! They're very friendly and accommodating. We got to meet Moon on the first day (by the way thanks for the note you gave us before we left for the airport!) and Jin who didn't fail to chat with us during breakfast. Hope you guys enjoyed the dried mangoes :)
The free breakfast is good enough to start your day. You could bring your breakfast to your room or eat it at the common room (which I recommend since it's fun chatting with Jin).
We were billeted in two different rooms for 2 nights each, one was the Double Room and the other was a Twin Room. Both rooms we're beyond what we expected, the beds are super comfortable and having a personal computer in the room was a nice touch. The kitchen in the room was good too for some late night cooking.
I would definitely go back here the next time I visit Seoul.
