Young Dong Hotel is located just opposite the famous Garosu-gil, close to restaurants, bakeries and shops.
My biggest issue with the hotel was the air-conditioning. It was centrally controlled and I think to save costs, the hotel turns it off most of the day and night, leaving it cool only for a few hours in the evening. I have lost count the number of times I have to call the front desk for it to be made cooler, and they do, but after a couple of hours, it goes back to being warm again. Turning it up to Highest only causes more warm air to blow out. Trying to sleep in the stuffy room is impossible.
The rooms are small but if it's just used for sleeping, is adequate. The walls are thin, and you could hear people talking, TV noises, and doors banging and closing.
The wifi is free, but drops out every now and then.
We didn't get breakfast with our room, so can't comment on the food.
There is a gym; however, the only treadmill there is almost always being used by the staff from the massage place.
It's a pity, as the hotel is in a great location. Staff are friendly enough, although some can't really speak English.
