Cheap, convenient, clean, but minimal comfort
The room was rather Spartan and the bed quite narrow... it wasn't much of an issue for me as I am rather thin (66 kilos), but if you are a big guy, it might be not be very convenient. But I give it 4 stars overall for price and convenience. Staying in an individual room + bathroom in a city like Seoul for 25 USD/night is really cool, and as they say "you get what you pay for", so for me, there is nothing to complain about. I was too busy exploring the city to care about my room anyway. ;)

Difficult to locate the hotel especially at night. Please provide the clear map. The food around is cheaper than Myeong Dong

Average guesthouse but very cheap
This is an average guesthouse and for the price we paid, we'd have extended it if we weren't at the end of our Korea trip. There was a sale so the double room with private bathroom that we stayed at was worth it. The thing I didn't like was that it was hard to find, and you had to go into two alleys. We went down the wrong alley and got lost. They only posted a sign to the guesthouse from one direction but we came in through another street and didn't see anything. The best part was it's an amazing restaurant area, lots of good eateries just right outside those alleys and we'd have loved to explore the food in that area more. Some hotels we stayed at in Korea wasn't by that many restaurants with such huge choices. It also had AC in our room and that was nice because the window was really small and the room not very large so it would have gotten stuffy otherwise.

Friendly Staff and Clean
We were able to check in early without any issues. The room was pretty bland and didn't have a tv, but it was very clean. The staff were friendly and gave us some dinner recommendations. It's under 5 minutes to get to the subway, with some restaurants and 7/11, GS, etc close by.

You get what you pay for
I spent a little bit more time to find this hotel on the first day in Seoul. Fortunately, I got some help from a couple staying in the same hotel. The staff in the front desk was very nice and offered me some help to load my bags to the second floor. I had a one-bed room for one person with a bathroom and air conditioner, and the space was ample. The breakfast is very basic and simple. In general, I will still choice this hotel next time to Seoul and recommend to my friends.
