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...

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...

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.

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...

“Rooms without toilets are actually much better than rooms with one as water tend to leak into the room after showering. The shower screen doesnt really work. Those with ensuite toilets are located at 3rd floor and if you have large luggages, better to be located on 2nd floor instead. Anyway, the common toilets are small and clean.”
