Fine for a cheap stay. However, security was quite low and the 8 bed dorm was cramped. I needed to hire a towel in the morning but there was no staff until 9.30 (the sign said 9) so that was frustrating. Felt some rudeness from some staff too, but could have just been a bad day. Staying one night for 9,900 won is fine but if you can afford it, choose somewhere else.


Crossroads was great, in the heart of Hongdae! Really appreciated the bedside curtains :) Could do better with the directions to the hostel though! First-timers would find it hard!


Lots of cool people to meet here! The hostel isn't connected to many attractions in the city, but the staff is super helpful, and so are the guests. Location is awesome! Showers leave a little to be desired, but its all clean. Kitchen is pretty nice. Each room has its own light, outlet, hangers, and a little screen you can pull closed. Stay here!


The hostel was great, I stayed in there for 5 nights and the staff are really great, the place is clean, party all nights, It's easy to find since you printed the map on the website. I would love to stay there one more time. I made really good friends :D. U should give it a try :P
