The location of this hostel is really fantastic especially with the cost being so low. The owner was kind enough to upgrade my room, so that was pretty nice! There are small lockers, but the main door is locked and everyone gets a key, so you don't really have to worry too much; I felt very secure. I live in South Korea and love weekend trips to Seoul, so I've stayed at many hostels. I think of good hostels as ones that I would stay in again- would I stay here again? Definitely. -Aaron”
The hostel was located in Hongdae and very easy to find. Great location, easy to access any time of the day or night. Facilities were acceptable: necessities were provided, decent place to stay. I will stay here again.
best located hostel in hongdae, right in the middle of everything so you dont have to walk 10 minutes to get to the cool areas. my second time staying in hostel with the same owner Mr. Ko. Will be back again I'm sure.
I was there with other three friends of mine and we stayed in a four bedroom with the toilet inside. It was one of the dirtiest hostel I've ever been, the bed linens weren't cleaned, the wc was really dirty and the toilet seat was soft, the wifi Internet connection was quite good but not always working, the feeling of insecurity was all around us (the code of the room's door was 999) and the central door for the building was all the day opened. I won't go again. Betters available in the area!
We had a good stay. Location was great. Middle of Hongdae so perfect for out-nighters.
location－wise excellent, and the staff there is really helpful. Hard to find a cheaper one in the nearby area. I enjoy the stay here, thanks.
