We stayed in this hostel for 13 nights in September 2013. The hostel had decent reviews but we felt a little bit let down, The room was the size of the double bed and that's about it and there was damp. The shower was nice, lots of pressure but the bathroom doesn't inspire cleanliness. We spent most of our nights... More

The room is clean. Staffs are nice. No curfew. You can take the subway to come to hostel. The hostel is located in Singeumho station (purple line, subway line no.5) It's near Dongdaemun and Myeongdong. There are 2 convenience stores around the hostel (CU mart and GS-25.)

The room had a strong humidity smell. Probably a problem with the pipes because the ceiling was humid. And of course, as it was the winter, the room for this reason was even colder that it should be. In addition, the bathroom wasn't clean at all. Hopefully they warn you in advance that they cannot provide you things like towels...... More
