8 bed dorm was spacious, clean and then beds are comfy. Has funky interior like you are in a converted warehouse. Shrek makes you feel very welcome when you arrive. He can be proud of his guesthouse. Only dislike was the lack of WCs other than in the rooms - korean girls take so long to get ready .
Scores highest on all aspects. Fully recomended. Especially the Host is very helpful !
good hostel! good location! and super friendly staff. nothing to complain about.
Staying at the G guest House was incredible. It is located in a great areawith restaurants and bars (Itaewon). It is alive mostly during the weekends. I met several Koreans and foreigners.Shrek the owner is a passionate person who cares about the business and making people feel at home. The shower is not that big but you get used to. I love the terrace which is a great place to hang out and enjoy the view. I really recommend the hostel for your next visit to Seoul.
Best guesthouse I've stayed at my entire trip. Thank you so mucmuch!
Great location, easy to find. Very lovely English speaking staff . They made me feel very welcome, helped with bookings, gave advice for travelling etc. Great free breakfast in the morning. It was easy to meet other travellers in the mixed dorm room. Great place overall. I would stay again and actually already did so since I started and ended my trip through Korea in that guesthouse.
Hostel is easy enough to find. Don't stay here if you want to sleep. Lots of noise throughout the night. Clean and a good location near the subway. There's not really a place to meet people if you are traveling alone. The reception area is a little awkward. Breakfast is cereal, toast and jam.
Amazing hostel, friendly staff and good location. I hope go back someday...
it's the hostel where to stay in seoul, right in the middle of the city close to everything. The most confortable and friendly place i stayed in long time. shrek will help you all the staff is friendly and helpful with all the answer to your question.
I loved it. The stairs at the entrance are a bit difficult to go up with with big suitcase though (some do).

Great staff very helpful Shrek was. Great location in party area, and good ethnic and korean food joints in area! Only down side was the breakfast /common area was small and cramped, and there were no other common spaces, lounges. Rooftop was good, but it would be really great to have some umbrellas, becasue at the moment, if its sunny, its too hot to be up there. Good for night time if there are other guests there too!
Good location in Itaewon, but would suggests Hongdae was a better area during the week. Weekends are where Itaewon came alive. The owner Shrek was amazing, such a friendly character! but other staff mostly internationals looking for free accommodation were not as friendly and not interested in conversation. I met some like minded people whilst staying here
Had a great stay at this hostel. The owner, Shrek, gave me some really good tips on what to do. They even gave me a nice lunch on arrival! Will definitely be coming back here when I return to Seoul. Highly recommended.

Thank you to Shrek, Fiona, and Nie! I had an amazing time at both their guesthouses. They're sweet, kind people who were there to help and be friendly with. Beds and hostel are comfy and clean. Hope to be back someday soon!
Great location, and nice staff. No complaints at all.
A very friendly and nice clean hostel. The team here obviously care about the place and are very accommodating. It's in an ideal location from which to explore Seoul and close to the night life, but not close enough that you cannot get to sleep at night. Easy to get to from the airport and has a good view from the roof too for those lazier days!
This place was very cool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is pretty funky and done up with graffiti, but despite the look they're going for (of kind of a back alley), it is rather clean and comfortable. My one caution: if you are planning on doing a lot of partying and drinking while staying here, be very wary of the steps while returning back to your room; the ones outside the building are very uneven and the ones inside are far more steep than your typical staircase :)
Super cool hostel, close the subway and super close to "a vortex to another dimension" : the lively party area of Iteawon. The staff is awesome and very welcoming. Ni IE was very helpfull, pointing out cool spots to eat and listing must see places. Join for the weekly BBQ on the rooftop & meet some local.

Really cool place to stay. Staff are super helpful and welcoming, and the rooms are spacious and well maintained, if a little on the basic side. Location is the real selling point, very close to bus/subway in the heart of Itaewon. On top of this, it's all at low cost. If I go to Seoul again I'll be heading back.

One of the best hostel experience I've had. Great atmosphere, and many little considerate things that make the stay much more enjoyable and convenient:reading light + 2 plugs next to each bed, water cooler in the hallway, free shampoo/shower gel/toothpaste etc. View from the rooftop garden was awesome! Itaewon is not the typical backpacking neighborhood but it's only a few metro stations away from all tourist areas and is def well worth exploring. Many many thanks Shrek for the amazing time!
