“Great location but no lift”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Everything was fine except for no lift available.
My room was on the fifth floor and I had 2 big luggage with me which i have to carry up.
Families with many luggage are advised to consider this factor in.
Room is pretty small, mind that might not have enough space to open your luggage.
Overall, still good for its cleanliness,friendly staff, location (near to myeongdong shopping area and subway station) both 3 minutes walk, wifi in each floor.

We stayed in a tiny room for 1 night only, but we were pleasantly impressed by the cleanliness of the place, the friendliness of the staff and the great location of this property.

Yes, the room was a small 'box' but it had everything we needed and was super-clean.

This budget hotel is a good option for Myengdong, and I would recommend you stay there if you cannot get a bigger room in the area.

This is a great value place which is very convenient. It’s located right in the heart of Myeongdong, one of the major tourist areas, and is just steps from the metro. The airport shuttle bus also stops right across the street, an added bonus.

This is a hostel-style accommodation, but with lots of small private rooms available at very good prices. Our twin room was very small, but clean and modern. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our room had two bathrooms, each with a shower and toilet. It also had all the amenities we could ask for, including a TV, bedding, slippers, and complimentary bottled water. There are a lot of rooms that are very close together, so sound travel could be an issue. (When we woke up early and started playing music, we disturbed the guests in the room next to us).

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had trouble finding the place at first, as it’s in an alley off a main street. We asked a passerby to call the hotel for us, and one of the staff members came to meet us where we were waiting. He then insisted on taking my suitcase and carrying it all the way up to my room for me, which was very nice as it was particularly heavy. There is a 5000 won per bag fee for storing your luggage after you check out, but we didn’t have enough cash on hand to pay it so a different staff person didn’t hesitate to let us leave all 4 of our bags at no charge.

There is a small common area on the main floor, as well as an outdoor patio where you can relax. There are also several tiny kitchens for preparing your own food. Breakfast is included with your stay, though we missed it so I can’t speak to its quality. There is free wifi, which worked well.

With its great value, cleanliness, and convenience, I would stay here again if I return to Seoul.

If you are a backpacker in Seoul and need a clean place to stay with reasonable price in a decent location, this is a good choice.
It's right off Exit 1 of Myeongdong station (line #4).
The staff are friendly and helpful and they speak fluent English and Chinese.
They provided bottled water, unlimited supply.
Room cleaning is available upon request. They will only go into your room if you ask for room cleaning.
The place is cozy and modern looking even though the room can be small. But it's a good fit if you are a backpacker and just need a place to stay.
It's centrally located and very convenient.
I would stay there again if I visit Seoul.
