Best place I've ever stayed as far as having a private room. Clean, quiet, comfortable bed, and it's really nice to have the little ensuite. I have to go to Seoul every weekend for graduate school and this is by far my favorite place to stay. If you want to party, the location isn't the best, but if you're sight... More

The hostel rooms are small by most people's standards, but they are good enough if you just want a place to rest and put your feet down before you get out and explore Seoul. It is also very near the Dongdaemun area, and accessible within 10-15 minutes' walk, depending on how fast you walk. I have to admit that after... More

We have been staying here whenever we visit Seoul. Good wifi connection, great location, hot water, basic & clean room and friendly staff. Recommended if you just want a cheap room to sleep near metro station.

Pros: Dongmyo station is in a convenient location to travel to many different areas Close to the station Free Wifi and Computer access Private rooms available with fridge Cons: Clean, but really worn down and messy...

We booked for nights there, and wound up extending three more. The location was great, the free breakfast was sufficient, and the room was an okay size. If I was staying in Seoul again, or had a friend looking for a hostel, I would recommend this one.

We had a very comfortable stay here. We stayed in a double room (bunk beads) with a private bathroom. It was quite small, but very clean and neat. It's located close enough to a metro station. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The twin room we booked with two separate single beds, a fridge, fan, two small windows and a tiny tv was perfect for what we needed. We were spending most of our time in town anyway and it's pretty easy to get here from both the airport (the stop for the airport bus is a 5 min walk away) and... More

I had booked the hostel for 10 nights when I am travelling in Seoul. After first night, I decided to withdraw from the hostel (forfeiting my money) as they switched off the air-conditioning after 12 midnight (IT'S SUMMER!!!) and the fan (not of much used) provided is too noisy (due to vibration) when put on the desk. I could not... More
