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!


Good location. The hostel is nice though is more like a family house. When i went it was full of the cousins of one of the staff guys and they were all day on the computers and the "kitchen" eating. There was no common area where to meet people so in the end i had more like a hotel experience where you don't talk to anybody rather than a hostel one. No kitchen and no lockers. Staff is very helpfull and dedicated. They give free coffee, tea, water and bread.
