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.

I do not recommend this hostel. Try to stay somewhere else in Itaewon - I recommend Philstay. Bad: -hostel owner did not make me comfortable or welcome -hostel is drab -other guests were very unpleasant (not the hostel's fault but it seemed to be a recurring theme) -bathroom facilities not great (nowhere to put clothes in shower, no sink in the bathroom to wash your hands...) -beds very hard Good: -location -ease of access -common area has a big table

It's on the fourth floor, with no elevator. Not a bad hostel, but the rooms are small and the walls are very thin. It's a good walk away from the central part of Itaewon, but the location is pretty decent overall. The rooftop area offers a beautiful view of the city.

Great location, very friendly staff but hostel atmosphere/common areas wasn't super great - you can always make it good with the right people though. Good value for money.

Great place in the middle of itaewon! I only planned to stay for 2 nights and ended up spending 10 nights! The staff are fantastic and always chatting, it's a 5 minute walk from the subway station plus there's a free food area which is just ideal. Only downside is the showers are a bit small and there isn't really anywhere to put your clothes but that's only a minor issue really. Highly recommend

Great location, but lacks in nice facilities such as beds, mattresses, sheets, power sources, equipments (very old), and general ambiance. Seemed like the common area was mostly where the owners/co workers spent their private times, making the area somewhat not very open for everyone else. However one of the workers was extremely detailed and friendly in helping me finding out how to get to my next destination. Thank you!

Who would've thought that 'deluxe' room meant something that was a little bigger than a closet? I sure didn't. My standard private room had me reliving all my favourite Harry Potter fantasies in his cupboard under the stairs. At least Aunt Petunia would have kept the place clean. The bathrooms were pretty damn gross and I would advise you not to check for any lost items under the bed. The dust bunnies have started their own primitive civilization. They are territorial. That item is their's now.
