위치가 살짝 외져 찾기 힘들지만, 전반적으로 깔끔하고 비용대비 매우 만족스럽습니다.

불친절하고 숙소 그릇에서 머리카락 나옴, 더럽다.. 太脏了,而且服务最差。 这个宿舍真不好, 比如态度, 清洁 还有等等。 不推荐!!! 宁可去朋友的很小家,也不去这个宿舍。 외국사람이니 모른다고 나에게 이해는 요구하면서 불친절하고 비아냥대는 태도에 대해서 전혀 사과는 안함 . 그리고 김치게스트하우스 최악이라는 후기에 여기 호스텔 예약한건데 김치랑 여기랑 같은 것임.

후회 많이 했어요
침구 상태 지저분, 수건 상태 좋지 않음, 화장실에 곰팡이도 있고 하룻밤 자는데 정말 별로였어요 숙박업을 하면 침구랑 수건은 깨끗하게 세탁해야 하지 않나요. 저녁에 후덥지근했는데 에어컨상태도 좋지 않았고요. 정말 후회 많이 했습니다

So far from the station. They have no elevator and i stayed at 4th floor. Their pillows are so thin and small. I can't sleep with it. But can go to the convenience shop at the corner. The bathroom looks too old ,and the room's smell was so bad. And the last one the room is not soundproof. So I can hear the room next to me talked and laughed all night.
