I'm glad I picked this place because I think it made Korea much more enjoyable. Reasons: Great location in a fun area, close to everything and simple to get to the airport and train stations. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. They answered tons of questions, organized a few meals and activities (including a ski trip), and helped with other things like shipping from the post office. The common area was comfortable and ideal for socializing.
Tony the owner and Way the lovely Malaysian staff member were a pleasure to meet. The area where this hostel is located is fantastic. If you explore the area you will find countless cool bars, restaurants etc. I worried it was far from facilities but it is connected incredibly well and would stay here again without any doubt. PS. I love you Way!
Tony and Way you are the bomb:) The staff is really the biggest value of this place, location is allright, and the common area really nice. It's a little hard to find so Tony you should consider a sign outside by the Police station and down by Dunkin Donuts. Prices is awsome, and your located close to some cool bar, 5-10min walk. Same distance to the metro. Airport bus located just 5min walk from hostel, was nice. Overall nice experience!

Very hospitable welcome, when we needed a late lunch Tony took us to a little local restaurant for bibimbap - it was delicious. Easy to book DMZ tours. Great tip for dinner in the area. Helped us to make appointment and let us store bags while at DMZ tour.
Great little hostel - staff are lovely and very helpful with anything you need to know about Seoul. Did find the room cold on the 2 nights I stayed there, it is the end of winter though but I did think there would be heating of some form in the room. There was a thermostat in the room and it said ti was on HIGH the whole time, so it may just be a fault with that room. The kitchen/lounge area were all nice and warm however. Would stay here again!!
It's a lovely place with lovely people! :) Fully Guest House really feels like home! :) I will come back :)

The hairdryer was plugged into the ceiling in the bathroom, which was actually a wet room. Ifelt standing with my feet in water to dry my hair was a bit risky. Also there was no drying facilities here.
For being one of the cheapest alternatives i could find in Seoul I was extremely surprised by the quality of this guest house. Very friendly and helpful staff and the fact that it isn't a very big place helped create a welcoming and friendly atmosphere among all the guests. We had dinners together and they where full of tips on places to see and do. Warmly recommended.
Nice hostel, friendly staff, good location. I only stayed one night so can't really say more but I have no complains whatsoever.
Good location in a relaxed area with cute bars, cafes and restaurants to eat/drink in meaning you can enjoy Seoul's crazier areas and have somewhere chilled to come back to. The hostel itself is super friendly, great staff and its a good place to meet other travelers.
The best hostel I have been to in Korea so far. Excellent facilities, very warm ground heating, very clean room (double bed ensuite), friendly and helpful staff. Washing machine can be used for free! Very close to a shopping, entertainment and eating area and close to major attractions of the cities. I strongly recommend this hostel and definitely will visit it again when coming back to Seoul, even if it is a business trip. I feel
The hotel itself is not directly in the center of the cool little area, but it's really close. The 7 to 10 minute walk wasn't that bad unless it was cold at night. xD We got moved from one room to another for some reason part-way through our stay, but the amazingness of the staff was more than enough to make up for it. They ordered food for us, gave us amazing restaurant recommendations to local places devoid of tourists, and were really fantastic. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
awesome hostel! the staff and other guests were so welcoming, friendly and helpful! if i had a question, any of the staff there were super willing to help out! the hostel was very clean. we loved staying there so much, we decided to switch our stay in a future hostel to fully hostel instead!
This was the best hostel I have ever been to. The private room I stayed in was nice, warm and clean with complimentary wi-fi. The hostel location is very good, only 5min. walking from a convenient subway station. The atmosphere is friendly and everybody was kind and welcoming. Y.Way is absolutely amazing, she helped me so much during my stay and gave me great suggestions to book shows and tours in Seoul. I have found really a great environment and I will definitely reccomend Fully Guest House!
Had a great stay here, went to BBQ and karaoke pretty much as soon as we arrived in Seoul which was organised by the hostel. Its a fun and friendly place to stay
The staff are so lovely and the hostel has a really nice and friendly atmosphere. We stayed in the twin room which by hostel standards was fairly spacious and comfortable. It was quiet at night so you can get a good night's sleep. The free breakfast and tea/coffee as well as shampoo/conditioner/body wash was very much appreciated. A nice base to explore Seoul from :)
This was the best place I stayed at in South Korea! The staff are incredibly friendly and will help you with ANY issue. The location was great as it is on the same train line to get into the centre of Seoul and most places. I stayed here for 3 and a half weeks and the rates were very good - I stayed in the double room, single room and dorm and all were very clean and in good quality. When I come back to South Korea I will absolutely stay here and I will and have already recommended it to others.
Wonderful place to stay. But what transforms this from a perfectly fine guesthouse into an awesome one is the staff. Tony was so helpful, giving me a jacket to wear because I did not have warm clothes when I arrived in Seoul, and driving me to the electronics store when I needed to buy a memory card for my camera. The guesthouse is in a great neighborhood, with easy access to many bars, restaurants, and sightseeing attractions. Highly recommended.
Absolutely awesome! Most guesthouses I stayed at in Korea were clean and comfortable, but what sets Fully apart is the staff. Not just a place to crash, the staff went out of their way to make this an awesome experience - sharing and introducing unfamiliar food, and even making my dinner with a Korean friend a night to remember. The neighborhood, near Sungkyunkwan Univ, is full of good food and fun things to do, & within walking distance of both Cheongdeokgung and Bukchon. Highly recommended!
Staff were really helpful at accommodating our last minute request. Rooms and facilities were extremely clean. Security was also more than adequate. I would have liked to have stayed longer than one night but will definitely return in the future. One small thing, the towels were a little small. But overall great experience.
