This hostel is very good. Staffs are all very nice, and the hostel is very clean. The hostel have everything you need, which is very good. Only is location is a little hard to find, because it is on the 4F of the building. You should look for the sign very carefully.
The staff was AMAZING! Great location and atmosphere:)
The room location which is not the same as the hostel address is an unpleasant surprise. There were incorrect information given about breakfast also (breakfast is not provided). However the owner is very helpful! Many thanks!
Great place to stay! Staff is super helpful and stayed up late for me. Itaewon is a fantastic neighborhood and the hostel is close to several great restaurants, bars, and clubs. Would definitely stay again. Only issue is that some rooms are half a block away so you have to go to the main building to talk to fellow travelers.
Facilities are nice and location is good. The property is clean. Starting around 10:30am, a member of the staff came into the dorm room, opened the shades on the window, drew all of the room curtains, which are loud, and then started vacuuming while 3 people were still in bed. When asked to wait until later, he said it was 11am and he was going to vacuum. Very disrupting and discourteous. I'll be sure to stay here if I need to wake up early - I won't even need an alarm!
I`ve stayed here before in the winter but stayed in summer this time. The private room in the mixed dorm area was too hot so moved rooms and it was better but mattress was hard. Better value in wintertime.
Very nice staff, good and clean place, near subway
Great place, itaewon is a bit expensive which influences the price of the hostel a bit, but all in all it's a good spot, comfortable.

Stayed in the ensuite single room and there was a roach problem. Could smell the roach foggers and there were still some creepy crawlers on the ground. Would have expected at least a rodent free stay for the money I paid. It was Itaewon, so I shouldn't have expected much but still it was the worst hostel experience I have had in Korea for a single ensuite room. Should get rid of those rooms as it hurts the reputation of the whole guesthouse. Staff was very accommodating and helpful.
I would definitely go back to this hostile...the facilities and room are very clean, staffs were great, and it has a very friendly atmosphere. The location is great, too! Definitely an A+!

An outstang hostel! Dukon and the rest of the staff are so friendly and helpful. I felt so comfortable, absolutely no complaints. Most importantly... GOT TO SEOUL! It's amazing!!!
I had a lovely time staying in IS@K for couple of days. The staff were very nice and it seemed like a very chill, relaxing guest house. It's also right in the centre of things at Itaewon. I'll definitely stay again when I go back up to Seoul.
Directions to the hostel , because I felt that it took longer to walk over to the hostel from Itaewon station. Moreover, I was wondering whether Hangangjin station would be nearer instead.
This is one of the few hostels that offers single rooms. However, the single I had was right off of the dorm with no window and so hot I had to leave the door open to the dorm room to cool it off. I also had to walk through the dorm room to get to the rest of hostel. I might as well have booked a dorm bed.
This is an awesome hostel. If I'm coming back to Seoul, there's one thing for sure which is that I'm gonna stay here. The location is great, the price is great given the location, but what really sets this place apart is the staff. They're the most genuinely friendly and helpful people I've met in Korea
Great hostel. Very friendly, helpful staff. Common areas good for meeting other guests. Hostel is very clean, good showers and kitchen facilities. Hopefully the v. loud construction noise that kept me and other guests awake from 4:30 in the morning has finished because other than that it was a great place to stay.
