the atmosphere was really nice, the location excellent to 2 of most important palaces in seoul , just few minutes, and 4 minutes the most touristic road the famous " INSADONG" , road for small gifts to take to friends and alot alot of nice reataurant . but my dormitory felt really humid and smells lik wet rot but I DONT KNOW FOR THE OTHER dormitories or rooms. apart from this and the bad weather my stay was really nice . advise don t go to s.korea in the raining season.


We haven't had the chance to stay in the hostel since we arrived in Seoul very late (around past 11 pm) When we arrived, the Hostel was already closed; there was no one in the reception area. We try to call and waited for a few minutes outside the Hostel. When it is already getting really late, we try to look for another Hostel near the area, luckily we find one. If not, we would have been sleeping in the streets.

10 out of 10, stand out simply the best hostel I have ever stayed in! It's brand new, modern, it's like a proper grown-up hostel. The dorms are capsules so you get more privacy and better sound insulation. Lockers that are free, no deposit and are big enough for the largest backpack. bathrooms are clean (but no wash basins), decor is smart and modern. Rooftop garden (really big) excellent communal area. Staff are lovely, breakfast is good, coffee is strong! This place is awesome, loved it.
