Some of the staff are very nice and helpful but the manager here can be rude at times and is only nice if he wants to be. He can be very arogant and unprofessional.. It is very noisy at night and the hostel fails to enforce quietness at night. The staff drinks a lot and invite their guests (people not staying at the hostel) late at night to drink with which brings up the question of if this is a hostel or a place to bring your hookup. Breakfast is only toast, PB & jam, eggs, and rice which is nice and they also sometimes order dinner and invite everyone to eat. The beds are comfy to sleep on but I don't think they wash/change sheets inbetween guests. All I saw the cleaning lady do is fold the blanket when new people check-in. The pillow is too high and stiff so it's not good to use. I got neck cramps after the first night so just avoid using it. There's no lift for luggage so if your staying on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th floor you will have to carry it all up the stairs. The location of the hostel is very convient and it's close to the "downtown" shopping areas of Seoul. Other than the location and some of the friendly staff (not the manager) it's an alright place to stay but you can definitely get a better place at a cheaper rate. This hostel just opened 3 months ago and it has a lot of problems but hopefully it will improve with time. Personally I will not be staying here again or recommending it to anyone.
