    The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location of the hostel is very strategic. You can walk to and from the subway station (Hyehwa, exit 4) and stop by the shops along the way. The only "problem" in this hostel is that the walls are really thin that you can actually hear the people from the other room talk and whisper. Other than that, the hostel is very nice and the people are trustworthy. Overall, my friend and I enjoyed our 2 nights stay in Backpackers INSIDE.
