Gom Hostel Dongdaemun
Ranked #373 of 586 Specialty Lodging in Seoul
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Seeing how this place was listed as a hostel and knowing what a hostel is in the USA, I was a little apprehensive to book the room. After reading other peoples reviews, we decided to take a chance. And it is an excellent place! One of the better places we have stayed during our time in Korea. It is basically an apartment which was great because we stayed a week here. The bed is comfy enough, there is a full kitchen so you can keep snacks or cook there if you wish. There is even a washing machine so you can pack lightly and wash your clothes as need be! The staff is amazing! Everyone speaks really good English and are super kind. Make sure you book in advance because with only twelve rooms, they fill up fast.

Room Tip: When booking online, review your order before you click pay now. The booking site kicked us from a d...

Going to Seoul and want to live in an apartment like environment? This is the hotel to stay in. It's two floor apartment that's strategically located close to Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Subway Station (Exit 5). On Friday nights, there is a flea market close by. It's also close to a airport limousine bus (#6001) stop in front of Toyoko Inn hotel. (1 min walk from Exit 3/4 of subway station). This bus can take you to Gimpo Airport (7000won/45mins) or Incheon International Airport (14000won/90mins). Bus runs every 20-30mins. Right opposite of the main road near the hotel is CJ Food World. It has an amazing bakery Tous les Jours and several restaurants housed in one building. There are a few Korean restaurants near (Exit 5) too. I booked 3 nights of Double room and 3 nights of the Suite. I was lucky enough to have been upgraded to the Suite for all 6 nights. Comfortable Queen sized bed, 2 person couch, room heater and A/C, make up mirror, very large LED TV with cable TV, free high speed WIFI, hot shower, washer, hair dryer, electric cooking stove, kitchen utensils, drinking water and even a teddy bear! The deal I got through Agoda.com includes daily breakfast (bread and juice box). Very nice bread from Paris Baguette bakery. The hotel staff is also very friendly and helpful. Their Korean staff could speak in Chinese (mandarin) and also Japanese. Office hours is from 8:00 am to 10:00pm. So please make sure you contact the hotel to confirm your arrival time so that they can receive you. I highly recommend this hotel to first timers and also frequent travellers to Seoul. Enjoyed every night in this hotel.
