  • Latest Review

    It was one of the cheapest stay in town, about 10-20 minutes walk from the subway, depending on your speed. Overall it was a pleasant stay, but the toilet and the kitchen would be great if it was to be cleaned regularly. The drainage of the toilet in the 12-bed dorm does occasionally stuck. The people staying there are really helpful, I wish I could spare another few more days in Seoul to interact with this bunch of people.
