Definitely a good choice for those who has budget concern but would like to live downtown Seoul!!! The location is pretty good and it's not far from most places typical tourists would like to pay a visit. However bearing in mind that Itaewon is mostly a place where foreigners gather. That being said, if you would like to explore more of the authentic Korean culture, you should reach out more in different parts of the city.

Great, simple place to stay in Itaewon. Location is excellent if you want to be near Itaewon. Wifi is very good and facilities are all perfectly reasonable. Owner is very helpful for travel plans and recommendations. If you're looking for a no frills place to stay and use as a home base, this is an excellent choice.

This guesthouse was great. The location was right next to the main clubs and restaurants in Itaewon, but it was still quiet and peaceful. The staff are super helpful and will check on you if you are late. It was really clean and comfortable. I'll definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

Helpful and friendly staff and a nice place to meet other travelers. The location in the embassy area isn't bad either.

Stayed here for one night on my way out of Korea. Stayed in the basic single hoping to get a better rest before flying out. The reviews that said the rooms were tiny weren't kidding! There is the bed and about six inches of floor before the wall. But it was comfortable and quiet and good for a one night stay. The owner speaks great English and is very kind and helpful as well, which is always a plus.

Thank you for your review. There was new year day party out side. Some guests went to hang out and came back late. So I am really sorry about that happening. Please understand that is not frequent. We try to check rules and policies and notice to guests. Thank you

A very good hostel. I was a little troublesome because I was in the middle of moving apartments and slept in the hostel with a lot of luggage, but the staff was very friendly and helped me when I needed help. The location is excellent, a very short walk from all the interesting places in Itaewon.

it's in okay place. The staff was friendly and location is good enough. However, I probably would pay extra to stay in a hotel. If you need somewhere to stay for one night, go for it. Anything more than that, and your back will pay.

The staff is very friendly and on my ast day, they showed me how to use the subway to the airport, which was relatively cheaper than taking a bus. I will be coming back in future.

I was looking to party in Itaewon and wanted to be somewhere close to the action. IS@k is right at the heart of Itaewon, okay maybe like a 4 minute walk from the real heart but its located on the main strip. You really cant go wrong. The staffi is friendly and welcoming. The place isn't big, and the private single rooms are basically closest with no windows dont bother with them, it was my first time staying in a windowless room and I didn't like it. otherwise awesome place. stay in the dorm

this is the fourth time i stayed in this guesthouse and everything is fine here and i suggest the usage of Hangangjin station instead of itaewon as it have elevator go to ground level on the same side of the guesthouse.

Simply put: wow! Extremely clean, extremely comfortable and with the added bonus of free toast, butter and jam 24h a day. The hostel is located in a funky part of Seoul where you can find food from all over the world. It's a quick subway ride into town so you're not really that far. The internet is super fast and the staff will go out of their way to help you and make sure you're feeling right at home. Would stay again!

This is my second time at Is@k and I'm happy with the property, the staff and their hospitality. The location is great. DownstAirs there is a money exchange, GS25 and restaurant galore! Best of all the airport bus/shuttle is just 30 meters away.

The single room was a closet with a bed and a small cupboard in it for hanging clothes etc. You had to walk through the group room, to get to it. Not exactly what I was expecting, but overall not too bad for the price. The staff was friendly and the facilities were not bad. If you don't mind sharing facilities or being in close quarters to other people, it's a good place to stay for the price and loacation.

Thank you for your review. You were staying in the budget single room which is like up graded dorm room. the price is almost same with our dorm room. But We have different types of single rooms. If you want more privacy and facility service, You can choose deluxe single room in the next time. Thank you

Was ok but considering its so close to G Guesthouse Is@k is worse on all parameters so no reason to chose this place. But it was ok safe clean ect. Only complaint is the layout, stayed in a 6man dorm and there were 3 other rooms whose only entrance was through the 6man dorm.

A good little place in a good location for public transport and nightlife I would stay again.
