“Backpacker haven”
Reviewed January 28, 2011

This was the place where I found out about ondol, the underneath floor heating. Amazing! Such a practical invention as January in Seoul was bone chilling cold and floor heating helps warm up and relaxes the already frozen feet. The place was ideally located at Hyehwa, one of the hub for nightlife goers and the subway was just a walking distance and there are bus station right at the doorstep. This means you can get to anywhere in Seoul at your heart's desire. Uber convenient!
Foods? Not to worry, there are plenty even when your stomach is growling at 11pm, there are restaurants that cater for your needs.
Another thumbs up is that next door to the hostel is the infamous Daiso or the 1000 Won shop which means convenient shopping in your pyjamas anytime!
Would definitely come again next time!

The location is great. Close to subway, next to the Daekhno food alleys and close to most attractions in Seoul. Convenient if you want to stay there and just get in and get out but is more of a hotel atmosphere than a hostel with limited common area. You will get all the information you need from Mr Sea and his associate though and they are extremely helpful.
