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.


For the price this is a nice hostel in a pretty nice location. They have small lockers for valuables. The facilities are a bit grungy so if you like a clean space maybe avoid this one, if you don't mind then this place has a nice atmosphere inside of a house with a big living room. nice for socializing. the shower was kind of strange in that it is just a shower head inside the same room as the toilet. Anyway, if you're looking for cheap you've found it!!
