We stayed here two nights and had a positive experience. The hostel looks new or recently renovated with modern touches. Our room had a comfy bed, kitchenette with stove top and refrigerator, washer/dryer combo, and the typical all in one Korean bathroom. The only negative thing was that our room had fruit flies, a couple mosquitoes, and some other small... More

I had a private room. The room was small but perfectly furnished with everything you need including a kitchen, a comfortable bathroom and free Wifi. Everything was new and perfectly clean. The staff is helpful and extremly nice. The location of the place is great as the nearest Metro station is Sinchon and goes almost everywhere in Séoul directly. The... More

I stayed here for 2 days just as a stop. This place is hostel style but if you want privacy there are solo rooms available. I paid for hostel but I was in a room full of empty beds. Floor/room is heated, but since the showers are outside the room you might get cold. The place is clean since you... More

The place was value for money! Clean rooms, friendly staff, free breakfast, free wifi, convenient location. We paid for a room with twin beds. For a room in Seoul, it is already good in size though the bathroom could do with a bit more expanding especially for tourist from western countries. Since I am also Asian, it was enough for...

It's not too expensive ($20/night) considering it's hostel but everything in Seoul is pricey. Personally I thought it was worth it, based on location, cleanliness, comfort, and friendliness/service of staff. All the staff members spoke English and offered a lot of advice on nearby attractions. They have heated floors, shared or individual rooms, communal (clean) bathrooms, and free breakfast before...

When we entered the room, the room wasn't that small, moderate... More

Just completed a 4-night stay at JK House with a friend. The hostel is great value for money and the staff are wonderful - we found them to be very friendly and helpful. We loved the location, close to a university area and consequently tons of nightlife, yet tucked down a side street next to a school so we found... More

We only stayed for one night but if we go back to Seoul, we will stay here again. The price for the location and variety of free services is outstanding. Rooms are basic, but right outside of your door is a bathroom/shower, washer, dryer, sink, and kitchen. Its technically shared with the other room on your floor level, but we... More

Our room was small and we woke each morning to an intense early morning heat (room on front side facing street). Air con didn't seem to be operational in the room. Only other complaint is that although the bathrooms are cleaned regularly they need a 'proper' clean as were a little bit grimy. Value for money was fairly good. Staff... More

The beds are quite basic, but is a good place to sleep. It's quite hot in summer so either will sleep with an open window (noise Seoul) or a noisy air-con. The breakfast is basic but enough to prepare u for a full day of activities. In case you don't know what to do, they will tell u the standard... More
