6/10 Good

I liked that it was close to Myeongdong, but that's about it. The room was slightly smaller compared to other hostels I stayed in, and the bathroom leaked into the bedroom if the shower hose wasn't placed strategically (the water pressure was also ridiculously hard). The toilet roll is also hard to access (you'll get what I mean). BUT, the staff was kind and friendly, and honestly for the price and location it's one of the better hostels if you're not too picky.

8/10 Very good

Great option especially when trying to save money
A short distance from all the touristy streets but convenient to everything. Newly 'remodeled' but still some work needed - the wall paper was peeling in our room. Staff was fabulous and very helpful, speaking very good English. Small rooms but hey, who is hanging out in their.room?

4/10 Fair

深夜12時のチェックインでしたがスタッフはおらず、エントランスはロックがかかっており、中に入れず。スタッフの連絡先の記載がエントランスのガラスにあったので連絡したが5分くらい連絡が取れず、そのあと連絡が来て電子キーのパスワードをLINEでもらってやっとホテルの中に入れました。こちらのサイトより事前にスタッフへチェックイン時間を連絡したのに返事がなく、最悪なチェックインとなりました。事前にパスワードを教えて欲しかったです。 ホテル近辺は静かでよいのですが、隣の部屋の声が聞こえて深夜はうるさかったです、部屋のトイレとシャワーは口コミに記載されていたので想定通りでしたが排水が悪く床に水が溜まって気持ち悪かったです、足は排水がなくなるまで洗えずでした。これにはがっかりでした。 朝食は食パンとパックのお米とシリアルとオレンジジュースと牛乳しかなく、日本のホテルの朝食を意識していたのでこれまた残念でした。 3泊しましたが部屋の掃除は無いです。ですが階段のところにタオルとバスマットがあり自由に取って使用済みはその横に使用済みタオル入れがあるのでここはよかったです。毎日きれいなタオルを利用できます。 お国柄なのか、ホテルのおもてなしが雑なのかよくわからなかったです。明洞駅に近いので金額もそこそこだったのでリーズナブルとは言えないです。日本語は通じないです。言葉に問題は無かったですがいちおう記載しておきます。 コロナでオーナー【ホテル名】が変更したので以前の口コミは全くあてになりません。 次回は普通のホテルに宿泊します。
