“A highly comfortable and pleasant stay- could not have asked for more.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The JA in Gangnam is a flat in a fairly old apartment which was not the easiest place to find, but as soon as you open the door, everything is perfect. If you don't know where to eat or have fun or relax, ask Dan or his wife and they will tell you/ look it up if they are not sure. There are many brochures in the hostel for your use too. All sorts of equipment are provided to make your stay as comfortable as possible eg hair dryer, iron, washing machine, multiple fans, air conditioners in every room, shuttle services to and fro the airports and the hostel, bedside lamps for each person, a tv, and a locker for each person to put valuables in, all kitchen appliances. It really is a well thought out hostel and I would recommend it to anyone travelling solo. I made new friends there who I will keep in touch with in the future, even though it was my first solo trip. Thank you JA in Gangnam!

I stayed for one night. Very clean hostel. Owners were helpful. Comfortable bed. I would definitely stay again. Breakfast included was toast and spreads.Location was in the heart of gangnam. At the street food stores, you must try the hotdogs in pastry covered in tomato sauce and sugar. Sounds weird - tastes delicious...

This place is quite small but cozy and cool. And I can't miss attractive things and places because of advice of Dan, who is the master of The Ja. If you visit Gangnam and you consider a guest house, The Ja is the best place for you, I'm absolutely sure.
