Very crampted shower area.


A well priced hostel with adequate facilities. Electronic lock on main door, although no lockers. Two very friendly staff during my stay (and one who was a bit grumpy). Centrally controlled A/C which guests can't change it was a bit stuffy in the dorm in July. Good privacy in toilets and showers. Bar downstairs serving food, soft and alcoholic drinks until late. Hostel is 5-10 mins from hongik uni metro and hongdae with loads of shops restaurants and bars - very good young nightlife.

Great hostel. Its a little far from the subway station, but not too bad. Great facilities and great price.


Will definitely be using this hostel again. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The accommodations weren't the best I've ever had but for the price and location I couldn't have had better.

Our dorm was close to the common area so it was pretty noisy at night.

Thank you so much for the review ! We will try harder to tell guests no more nose after midnight.. Its a good review ! from Mary, the host of Yellow Submarine.


everything was great! the staff was so nice and the cutie at reception was so sweet and showed us around the hostel and made sure we knew how to use the lock code. I only stayed for a night but i would totally come back.


Good Hostel in a super convenient location.
