Apple Backpackers Guesthouse
Ranked #37 of 590 Specialty Lodging in Seoul
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I've been staying here for 14 days with 3 other friends. We love the condition of the guest-house which feels a little bit like home. The room is clean and comfortable. The staffs are also very helpful and able to help in any situation that you've been through. We do face lots of technical problems during our travel, and they sure guiding us on what to do and so on. they can speak good english, so don't worry about the language barrier.

The location of the guest-house and the subway also is very convenient to access and it's connected to the major lines as well. In terms of tourist information, it's close to Insadong (just a 5 minutes walk) and also near to 2 palaces which you can walk on your foot. Namsam tower can be reached by taxi as well and the fare is quite cheap.

If you want to explore Seoul, it's advisable to go by walking if the place is nearby as you will find facinating places that you wouldn't expect to find in the first place.

So yeah, if i'm going to seoul again, i will definitely choose Apple backpackers as the priority. ^^

Love Apple Backpackers! Safe, clean and the staff are really friendly. Also there is a supermarket right across the road and subway station at the end of the street. This is a great place to stay if you really want the Seoul experience. The streets around are filled with great local restaurants and the Palace it right at the end of the street! Worth checking out for sure, definitely and best place we stayed at!
