    I didn't get the room I booked and was moved from one hostel to another to facilitate other bookings despite having already paid a deposit on the booking. Bathrooms were really dirty and small, old and rundown. The owner told me he was doing me a favor on arrival, while persistantly hitting me on the shoulder. My Korean friend said he was an extremely untypical and odd/ weird Korean. He was also mostly drunk while working with customers. Have fun !
