The team working here was great. But the room was really small for four of us to share, the shower is in the same room as the toilet and this room is always very wet, breakfast is just toast and eggs with no choice of toast toppings. The location is gooD with eveverything being walkable. But the hostel needs clearer directions, go out of exit 6 from the train station and then turn left up the first alleyway and walk straight past all the Korean BBQ pkaces and a left just before Seoul 53 hotel.


I have a really good stay at Fortune, great environment. Thanks for everything ^^

Excellent hostel, with hotel style facilities, situated in a great location to access all the sites of Seoul. This place is made all the better thanks to its incredibly helpful, welcoming and friendly staff. I ended up going out twice on a night time with the staff and I'm heading back to Seoul to see them all before leaving South Korea. After 7 months of backpacking, take it from me, not one to miss.


Fantastic value for the money and wonderful, English-speaking staff! My room had a private bathroom, a washing machine, a fridge, and a stove burner. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hostel is only a few stops from Seoul Station and quite close to lots of tourist attractions- and next to a craft beer place! Excellent.


It was very clean and has nice staff. They gave us a great recommendation for a vegetarian restaurant in Insadong. Also the room was very warm. Great for winter!


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.
