Well located in Seoul, but poorly located in a tiny dark smelly alley. No mention to the hostel name outside, making it hard to find at first. No room cleaning at all on the 4 days stay. All guests got rashes from the conforter, which never happened in any other hostel. The towels provided were face towels. The guy on the front desk was very nice, but spoke poor english. Also, he was the only one there at all times during the 4 days, which is worrysome to say the least.


Mr giant is really helpful. The hostel is centrally located and getting to anywhere in Seoul just ride away..


Big shoot out to the host of the hostel, Mr Giant: always provided valueable recommendations and help; very caring!


Great place to stay. Very clean and user friendly. The owner was very helpful even met us at the end of the street when we had trouble navigating seoul.
