It was very convenient to stay at Fortune Jongno Hostel since it is very near to places like Insadong and palaces nearby. The staff speaks English very well and are very friendly.


Friendly and helpful staff.


Great location, very clean, comfortable beds and good price. Staff are very helpful and kind. Easy to access from aiport. Also, easy to go many places such as downtown, palace, museum, and market. I will recommend everybody who will visit Seoul to stay at Fortune Hostel Jongno. My stay in Korea became much more enjoyable. Thanks a lot : )


Very nice people here!

This would by far be the best hostel we have ever stayed in. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel at home and even sit down for a drink at the end of the day with you and point you in the right direction for tours,sights to see and just some general conversation. Highly recommend this hostel great beds and very clean and tidy. Cameron, Ryan and Erwin

Very helpful and accommodating staff. Facilities were adequate. Great location, about 5 minutes away from Insadong. The beds were slightly too firm but quite comfortable. Breakfast was minimal with toast and hard boiled eggs. There's not much interaction between guests since there is no big common room to meet new people.


This is the first hostel I have ever stayed in and unequivocally it was the best experience. Although it was only for one night, Fortune knows how to provide good service. All facilities were exceptionally clean, beds extremely comfortable, and ideal location between Insadong, Gyeongbukgong Palace, and extremely close to the subway exit. No complaints--would visit again!
