  • 8.0.Very good

    Great place and great atmosphere. The locations is a perfect mix of a quiet area with easy access to a lively night life. The staff are amazing and willing to help you with anything they can. My only complaint is that the beds are not as soft as you’d like. It was difficult for me because i have a back condition. Additionally, since i stayed in the summer months (June, July) the hotel seemed extra hot during the day. However, they offer AC service in each room(500 won for an hour) which cools you down whenever you need it. Overall, an 4.5/5 experience for me. I would stay there again in my next visit to seoul

    A Hidden Gem

    A quiet hostel tucked away on a side street, but with easy access to lots of restaurants, shops and just over five minutes walk to the metro. All the staff are very helpful and speak excellent English. The hostel is spotlessly clean, with clean towels usually provided each day. Breakfast is provided each day - toast, jam and tea/coffee - and there provide a laundry service also. My only fault is with the beds. In the dorm rooms they have metal bunk beds which creak every time one moves on them, which isn't conducive to a good night's sleep. If they could fix that it would be a great place.

    Inside but where inside exactly?

    A friend and I booked a bunk twin with shared bathroom for one night. We arrived a little before 3pm check in and waited in the common area. The staff arrived exactly at 3 to check us in. We didn't get to stay in the main building but were taken to an annex as part of a public apartment block about 3~4 mins walk away and told it was an upgrade. Guess this was because it had ensuite shower room? Anyway it was up 4 flights of stairs and no lift, we both had suitcases and backpacks. Not ideal. The room was clean and functional, small kitchen included. We asked what the price to stay an extra night was and we were told 11,000₩ more than online, so we left. Did not go for breakfast as it was in the main building.

    While the room and facilities were clean and the staff was very nice and eager to answer any questions, the atmosphere was much louder than I was expecting. Even though my room wasn't right next to the common room, you could still hear people talking loudly all hours of the night. Quiet hours are not enforced and so it was difficult to fall asleep and get enough rest. Offering toast as breakfast is nice of the hostel but it is only available until 10.

    Good

    Staffs were kind and helpful, and I could meet some nice backpackers. There are many shops and restaurants around hostel. You can walk to palace and some market area and museum. Bread was served in the morning. Kitchen was compact, heater had issue on displaying power level, but kind staff helped to introduce the way to use. Wifi was good, room was comfortably air conditioned. Pricing was fair, good for budget backpackers. I’d like to visit again when I have chance to travel to Seoul again.
