Nothing to complain about with this place. It was quite nice, even excellent. The design and layout of the place is great. The staff was more than helpful and very kind. The breakfast was good enough, and was self-service. It was raining during my stay but if it wouldn't have been raining, having breakfast on their rooftop would've been nice. The bathroom for my room (a shared room with 6 beds I think) was ensuite, nice and clean. There are lockers if you need them. Great place.


They let you keep your bags there after you check out so you dont have to carry them around if you stay an extra day. Computers, books, and a tv in the common area which was easy to use and always available. Not crowded all at. You get plenty of space and breathing room.

It's hard to find fault with this hostel, the location is close to the intersection of two railway lines (an easy 10 mins walk) so you can get to everywhere, the staff are nice and the whole place is ridiculously clean, well designed and well maintained. The single room was massive with large bathroom and again exceptionally clean. The decoration is unique and you can tell the owners have put a lot of love into it. Stop thinking and book it before it's sold out.


Overall location is good as there are 2 subway line at Seomyeon station! Initially we were a little lost findng our way to the hostel. After that we realised we can walk to Lotte hotel from the subway, exit from the hotel, and make our way to the hostel. About 10 minutes walk. Booked Standard 4 Bed Family Room, the room was spacious enough (I feel) for 3 of us. It was winter when we went. The toilet was big but cold during winter, as there are 2 doors which separates the toilet from the room.


I had a nice, but quiet stay. As a solo traveler, I enjoy meeting people at hostels but there weren't too many other people around during my stay. Very nice hostel and nice staff. Location isn't too bad, but not the best.


Excellent hostel if you're not looking to stay near Haeundae...... very central


Within a short walk from a large subway station, which is surrounded by great food, bars, and shopping. Also, a 45 minute subway ride to the airport. However, the immediate surroundings felt a little bit sketch- in a bit of an ally, away from most businesses . There was a train that used the overpass next to the hostel. It didn't bother me, but if you are a light sleeper, maybe bring ear plugs. The hostel was clean, bright, and cute though, with wonderful staff.
