Travelers A

Reviewed June 27, 2013

I stayed here for a month and I felt that on the whole, my stay here has been really enjoyable. Firstly, I would like to commend the staff working here as they are really friendly and helpful. Also, there is cleaning service provided every 4 days and the rooms were rather well furnished. I got a queen sized bed even though it is a single room. Rates are also slightly cheaper than the other town area hostels and the location is great. It is a 2 min walk from the eujiro sa(4)ga station and if u walk along the underpass connection you can easily reach Myeongdong shopping area in around 15-20 minutes. Also, you can walk in the opposite direction along the beautiful stream that cuts through the city to reach the dongdaemum shopping district (10-15 min walk) where the shops close as late as 3am.

Very close to myung-dong,(2stops by subway, takes about less than 15mins from the guesthouse.) and also very close to other downtowns like Hyehwa(Daehak-ro), Jongno, Dongdaemun Market. The good thing is that TravelersA is cheaper than guesthouses around myung-dong.
And for me, the most attractive thing of this guesthouse is that this guesthouse is located in the town where u can feel the daily life of ordinary people in Seoul. usually guesthoses are located in downtowns like hongdae, sinchon, etc. so its hard to feel the real life of people in Korea. Well, yea, there are tons of Koreans in those places aswell, but usually Koreans go there for hanging out with their friends.
u can get a room only for u&ur friends even though u travel with more than 3 of ur friends. The room was clean, but a little bit cold. but it was not that a big problem cuz they turned on the heater while sleeping, and also I could get a electric pad. If u r planning to travel around Seoul with ur friends, I guess this guesthouse is right for u to stay.

I stayed here for about a week back in March 2012. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. I stayed in a single room on the 2nd floor corner. Room was clean but was constructed in a weird dimension (like a trapezoid shape). You may be shocked/surprised when you enter the room. It seems like they combined a single room and knocked down a wall to an old bathroom since half the bedroom floor was furnished with bathroom floor tiles. You can also see where the old shower faucets used to be on the wall. FYI, there is a separate bathroom which can probably fit one person at a time but clean. Again, room was clean but gives you a weird vibe when you enter since half the room feels like you're in a bathroom. There is absolutely nothing to eat around the area. No bars or restaurants. I had to make last minute arrangement to visit Korea so this was my only option. I wouldn't go back probably due to location.

Stayed for 5 nights in a double room. Great location with nearby access to the subway and wifi throughout the hotel. Staff was helpful and able to converse in english. Was grateful to the staff who manage to alter our itinerary when typhoon sanba struck.

Although at night theres nothing much to look forward to around the area, its a good location nonetheless. And if you're up for a walk, MyeongDong market is just a 15-20 minute walk away. Would stay again definitely. Only thing, they should provide better head pillows, the one supplied was too soft. Another down is that there is no lift, and lifting heavy luggages up two floors can be a chore. Other than that, its a lovely hotel to stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the lower floors as the stairs were quite steep, tourists with heavy bags will...

stayed here for 6 nights in a single room (private bathroom), it's a very simple room.
the placed was a bit hard to find at first, but not a problem once you found it.

contrary to other reviewer, i found that the place was very quiet.

pros : near the subway, not so far from the center of the city; english speaking staff.
cons : nothing much in the neighborhood
