Very strange atmosphere there - wasnt clear who worked there and who was just hanging around. Most of the plug sockets didnt work and the bathroom was filthy. Only positives were that it has a great location and is cheap.

The host is friendly but seems a bit sketchy, not that he is. He knows some English and seems to love using it, but he can be a little confusing. The place is very clean, and I think the host just sprays freshener on his beds rather than clean them after use by guests. Location is right in the midst of the hongdae bustle, which is convenient, but can be loud at night. Although not a great place overall, it serves the purpose of providing a bed at night for cheap just fine.

Don't bring valuables, because you will just leave everything on your bed. The pictures are not accurate...imagine a messy teenager's room, stuffy and dark, even with lighting...1 bathroom for 6 people...a strange smell seeping into your belongings...stained bedsheets. I couldn't take the uncleanliness anymore, so I decided to leave a day early. I was going to ask for a 1-day refund, but the hosts were nowhere to be found. So, I just said "f*** it" and left anyway. Will never stay here a

This would be fine for young people on a serious budget, who are not bogged down by the details. Absolutely no-frills, dead basic accommodation on the cheap.
