I went looking for a cheap, crappy hostel in a brilliant location and that's exactly what I got. The hostel owner is slightly quirky and a bit mumbley, but I warmed to him after he fed us all japchae and decided that drinking soju was a compulsory evening activity. The doors weren't ever locked and there seemed to be no security which was a little worrying, despite being reassured by the owner "we're in Korea, it's not a problem". If you are on a budget and want to party in hongdae, go for it!

Girls' private room okay. Boys' room and living area smelled strongly of feet. Owner very weird and mumbly, barely any English, barging into rooms and refusing at first to give us AC remote. Bathrooms are disgusting, covered in mould, although water pressure and temp good. Location is great though, and this place is dirt cheap, so as long as you're willing to put up with downsides, it's fine. Zero security, the door was unlocked/open all day/night (we had flimsy lockers for valuables).

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.
