This was by far the best hostel I ever stayed in Seoul. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious for Korean standards and very clean. The hostel provides a laundry service for 6.000 Won (washing & drying). The location of the hostel is also perfect. It is located in downtown Seoul, only a few subway stops from every major tourist attraction. For me, this is the best hostel in Seoul. I will only stay with Hotel Tong Seoul Dongdaemun from now on when I am in Seoul.


We had a wonderful stay at Tong. Lovely friendly staff the only disappointment was the three bedroom room was nothing like the one we saw on the website. It was so small and did not have 3 single beds One person had to move and pay again for another room. However we did enjoy our stay

This was an excellent place to stay and the staff went the extra to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Even though they did not serve breakfast, they had a small kitchen on each floor and a hot water jug in each room Free tea and coffee was also provided. We found a delightful cafe down the road where we had our lovely coffee and hot buns each morning. The location is perfect as well with the Tong Hotel being so close to the metro and also its proximity to the historic part of Seoul was ideal
