Backpackers Inside is a very cozy and cute hostel! I arrived in Seoul late and received very detailed instructions on how to enter by myself. I also saw many welcome signs when i arrived! The staff members are very helpful and kind. It's a great value and also very clean. I would most definitely recommend this hostel and would stay again!

it was my 2nd time going to korea and staying at this hostel. i like staying here because it's only a 5 minute walk to the subway and 3 minute walk to the airport bus stop. it's near a school so the there are many places where you can eat which won't hurt your wallet too much. it's also near a grocery store and has 2 7-11s nearby. one thing i also love here is it's near marronnier park where you can watch and enjoy live music, like hongdae but less crowded. as for the hostel itself, they always have someone who cleans it everyday and replace the towels. the bathrooms are clean and well maintained too.

Was a wonderful experience and good crowd. The staff are very hospitable and helped out with any questions I needed answering. They went out of their way to help other guests. Good small space making you want to talk to other travellers.

I still wanted to stay for a little more than a month in Seoul after I had to move out of my student dorm. After testing some hostels I was not satisfied with, I came to Backpackers Inside and I couldn't be more satisfied. The staff was so welcoming and friendly and the place felt so "home-like" that I wouldn't mind have stayed there longer. I can only recommend it further.
