This hostel doesn't live up to its high rating on Hostelworld.com Even though the staff were helpful, I was really disappointed by the place, and my experience staying at Hongdae Uncle Residence was not a good one. The rooms (because we got told we would have to change rooms) were really dirty, as were the bathrooms. I've stayed in many different hostels in Seoul before, and this is by far the worst when it comes to value for money. For the same price, I've had much better experiences elsewhere.
