The location was great. It was just outside Euljiro 1-ga station. Cross the road and you're already in Myeongdong. Decent size room. Bed was a bit hard for my liking, but it was comfortable. Has a bidet which is a plus for me. Wifi is strong. Staff are very helpful. It's not very clean. Mouldy tiles in the bathroom. No...

I recently completed a two night stay at Hotel Bonbon, a budget hotel conveniently located in the heart of Seoul. Unfortunately, with paper thin walls and drafty rooms, the hotel is a place I would recommend with reservations. ROOM I stayed in Room 201, a deluxe single room, located right off reception. Unfortunately, combined with thin walls, this results in...

This is a great budget hotel, the room is new and clean with quality bed, the location itself is perfect, just 2 minutes walk from subway exit, the staff is very kind, I guess it runs by a family so you will feel welcomed staying here. I stayed here for 5 nights and definitely will come back for my next...

It's an actual hotel that is affordable, NOT a hostel! :-) It is close to a lot of restaurants and shops, the subway, and some big tourist attractions. It is owned and run by a family, and the man is usually at the desk. If you want your room cleaned, you have to let him know, which is no problem....

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...

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....
