Myeondong Hostel was truly value for money. It was clean, spacious and amply furnished, given the price. I like its location too, quite a decent neighborhood and within walking distance to many sights and shops. It was right atop a good decent restaurant.

One important thing if you're going on a "backpacking" style trip is the location of the accommodation. The hostel (also called seoul backpacker hostel) is at a very convenient location, maybe 30 steps from the entrance of subway Euljiro 1-(il)ga (exit 6 - i think?). So when your feet is aching after a long day of walking, you just find... More

The best part of this hostel is the location. Euljiro 1-ga station is only 30s walking distance from it where you can take the subway to go anywhere easily. Myeong Dong is also walking distance from it. Service was ok. The staffs are very friendly in guiding you to destination that you want. They speak quite good English as well.... More

The hostel is average. It doesn't have a lift and has a small narrow stairway. I made a mistake of bringing a large luggage and had to eventually carry it down from 3rd floor to ground floor in check out. The booked a double room and it has a super single sized bed and a single sized bed. It has... More

They make you pay for an extra bed and give you an unconfortable blanket to sleep on the floor instead. Check out time is much too early. Some members of the staff are particularly unfriiendly. The rooms are tiny (as often in Seoul we have to admit) and wet (showers are not properly isolated from the rest of the room).... More

You cannot beat the location of this hostel, especially if your primary objective in Seoul is shopping. It is within sight of the Euljiro 1(il)-ga station (green line) subway station. That also means that it's across the street from the main Myeongdong shopping area and perhaps a 5 minute walk from the giant Shinsegae Department store. That said, this hostel... More
