I stayed for 3 nights.
The place is very DIY... and more like you just crash at one of the bunks at someone's apartment in a mid-rise building with bunch of other travelers. For me it worked, as I almost never slept.
There's a cool rooftop where people gather and socialize. Since it's not a typical hostel, no crazy parties of any kind. Laid back, especially while I was there. They do have drinks for sale at reasonable price.
Rooms are little cramped. The room I stayed should not be for 2 bunk dorm room but for a single room.
Jin, the owner was very helpful making suggestions.
A little hike from Itaewon station, but totally manageable, in a very safe and clean part of the area.
Cleanliness can use some help. In general, the place looked like it hasn't been cleaned in weeks.
