I found out, as a walk-in, I was paying 2x as much as other guests for the exact same bed for a wk AKA an extra $45 USD. Owner's explanation was that online there's a "promotion" price. I can understand paying a little more, but TWICE as much is dishonest and exploitative. Just make sure you don't get overcharged. Other things to note are staff come into dorm at 9:30 AM to turn off AC/open window in the summer. Owner is rude & excessively anal (other staff are super nice though.) WC is a sauna.

This was a great, solid hostel. They were accommodating and kind, and the location was absolutely perfect. I was able to walk around and see all of the city and big attractions. They also have a little event or special treat like a dinner different nights of the week! Met lots of cool people this way. Definitely would go here again!

The sheet and pillow had a rough texture that took me a while to get used to, and you can also almost feel the springs in the bed. Be aware that the bathroom is mixed gender, but there are of course stalls and everything so there no problem at all. There is little ventilation in there, though, so it gets humid. Other than these minor things, it was a good, cheap option for staying in Itaewon overnight.

Everything besides the shower room was ok. The changing/shower room is extremely small (technically co-ed changing room and three little rooms for shower). I wouldn't be surprised encountering an opposite gender, which is disturbing to think about. Otherwise, location was good and the staff was nice. Their free breakfast is bread and jam; don't expect anything fancy.

Overall my stay at IS@K was a great experience! The staff were super helpful and just great to be around. I actually spent several of my nights just chatting and hanging with them. The location is exactly midway between two subway stations, so the location was convenient. The only thing I wished they had out were extension cords because though every room had several outlets, there wasn't one near every bed. They might have had some, but I didn't ask.
