“Simple but cosy!”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Stayed for 6 nights, it's a simple hostel with free coffee/tea and internet usage at the lobby and wifi throughout the property.

The Staff are friendly and they can speak English, if you need them to help you talk to a Korean , they'll gladly help.

They can also get you discounts on selected tours. Check with them.

Room Tip: The shared bathroom are comfortably clean. There's 2 WC and 2 showers and a powder room for the...

1. Helpful and friendly staff
2. Good location, just walk for abt 5 mins to get there from subway station
3. Very clean
4. Stable wifi internet service which is not only at the lobby, now it can be used in the room; but htc cant connect to the Internet through wifi (don't know why~)
5. Not enough hot water for bathing in peak hours
6. Inside the room, the light at the entrance and other two lights didn't work at all, one of them has no bulb. No one came to fix them at all
7. No kettle in the room, as I stayed on the third floor, so I needed to walk three levels for the hot drinking water every time.
8. Not enough shelf or space for putting the bathing stuff in the bathroom.

went there during winter.
last minute online booking, and got the confirmation email within less than 24hours. i booked for a single room, but they gv me the double room without no extra charge.
nice service and nice bed. clean toilet. recommended for solo traveler. have to go back to the hotel before 3 am if not mistaken. not suitable for huge luggage or travel with kids and old people because of no elevator.

near the subway but you have to be careful at the exits. i went to the wrong exit, so its hard for me to find the hotel.

free internet at the lobby, im not sure about in-room because i never bring my laptop or gadget. can get some instant foods too. but have to pay.

Background:
No. of people: 2
No. of nights stay: 3
Type of room: 4 people room with own bathroom (special discount for 2 people)
Reason to choose this hotel:
Most of the budget hostels/hotels within Seoul center area are full, we have no choice but select this hostel with a special discount for 2 people to stay in 4 people room.

Good:
- Near subway station and easy to access
- Helpful staff
- Clean

Bad:
- Noisy from day to night, no sound isolation at all. Inside the room, you can listen other talking and walking outside (even they are in their room).
- No shops/restaurant/supermarket nearby
- Not cheap

Overall, I will not recommend to stay in this hostel because the noisy problem caused a lot of disturbance to us.

Stayed at Travelers A for 7 nights.
Location: 2-3 mins walk to the nearest stn (Euljiro 4(sa)-ga) but the neighbourhood does not offer much. (Only a few small eateries and the other shops were mainly dealing with printing)

Service: Helpful but could be more pro-active
(As this hostel is not lift accessible and we (party of 3 who were all ladies) were allocated a room on the 2nd floor, we had to dragged our huge luggages up the steep steps. And thank god we were living on the 2nd floor cos I think there are rooms up to the 4th floor.)

Room: We took the room with a queen -size bed and a bunk bed with a private toilet. The sheets were clean but old. New Sheets would have been better. The toilet was clean which was good:) They offer free room service for 3/4 nights of stay.

Price: It was pretty costly, as there are others offering similar facilities at a lower price. But it offered free-wifi and 2 internet PCs. They also have a phone which entitles each room to make about a 5-min overseas call.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay! Only advice is to stay somewhere else if you like the nightlife as the location does not offer much after 6.

The front desk staff are helpful and the prices are very affordable. However, the location is not as ideal. It is within 3 minute walk of Euljiro-4-ga subway station, however you have to walk a small dark lane to get back to the hostel. It is a heartland neighbourhood so the shops are closed and streets pretty quiet. Might be a little intimidating for girls. The rooms is pretty no-frills, but not that you should expect more with the price you pay. If you have alot of luggage, it is pretty challenging when you check in/out as there are no escalators. You have to drag it up steep flight of stairs. I guess I would recommend it if you are on a budget and not a first-timer to Seoul, but otherwise I think there are better located guesthouses in the same price range.

I went to Seoul for a week and stayed in Travelers A for 3 nights. The front desk staff was really helpful, the single room was fine. Free wifi and great location if you want to explore more the Gwangjang market.
