The location is great, no argument. But the place is really messy and dirty. The kitchen is a real nightmare, noone cleans the dishes, noone cleans anything... The showers are also messy and dirty, not really nice...
I've stayed at Big Choi's a 3 times, and the hostel it's self is fine. BUT twice when I have made reservations I've arrived only to be told that Big Choi's is over-booked and they've moved me to another hostel. The first time it wasn't an issue. The second time I was moved to Mr. Kim's Friends Guest house which is much lower quality. It was grungy, disorganize, and they hadn't been told we were coming. Big Choi's has unscrupulous booking practices- beware, they overbook consistently!
A nice place to stay. Stayed here twice now. A bit claustrophobic but good value for the money. Computers weren't working which was a bit of an inconvenience. I recommend the dorm room thats upstairs, away from front door and living room traffic.
