“Stay here only if you care about being in Hongdae”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

If all you care about is being near the party scene then this place might suit your needs. There's no AC, which was our fault for not realizing when booking, but it was ridiculously hot outside and the owner didn't bother to set up any fans. We would have asked him, but only saw him one time during our stay which was when we was collecting out money upon check-in. Oh, I take that back.. We did see him a 2nd time later on that night while he was drunk and creeping around one of the bars. The best part was when he started talking to us not realizing we were guests staying in his hostel. I've stayed at many other hostels and there's usually always someone there. This place felt unprofessional and dumpy.
