This hostel is clean and well maintained. It's family operated, and is small and personal. It's very reasonably priced and well located for traveling around Seoul. The surrounding area is very safe. Would highly recommend it for people traveling on a budget.

Good for budget traveler, but not easy to find cos the house hide inside a small narrow street and surrounded by the old building, if you decision this house, you need to do more map research cos most of the Korean don't know the road and direction and also don't know English.

My friend and I had a private room with a bunkbed, bathroom, TV, converter and some other basics. Breakfast was just toast but it was good and the laundry...

When we first arrived at the Sinseol-dong subway station, we do not know how to go to the guesthouse. The subway staff helped to make a call to the guesthouse, and Jeffrey, the guesthouse owner, came all the way to the subway station to bring us there. He even carried my luggage all the way! The guesthouse is conveniently located...

I was in Seoul with my younger daughter to meet elder daughter who was teaching English in Busan. We stayed for 2 nights in a 4 bed dorm room, with 3 of the beds made up (4th bed had no pillow or linens). We paid the rate for 3 people, breakfast included. Breakfast consists of toast with jam or peanut...
