It was excellent. I had a really good sleep for two nights. Reception was very welcoming. Location is very close to everything in Itaewon club party district. The place was spotless throughout the facility. Very good air conditioning in every room. It was like little Serbian Euro village in the heart of Seoul City. The renovation went on for quite sometime, but now it seems to be stabilized.


Very cheap when I booked it, helpful staff, good location with quite near to Itaewon station. Alot of electric outlets and good wifi connection. Negative is that because of boken locks there there was only one toilet and shower room you could use without having to worry that someone would walking in. And renovation was taking place so there was sawdust all over the floors and sometimes a bit noisy.


Excellent location, friendly staff and a bargin price.


Cheap, good location, friendly staff and good facilities. Loved the cat. Atmosphere wasn't very good but they were doing some construction of some sort so could be why.


Stayed for a night on the way to the DMZ. Basic rooms, but clean and very affordable. Good WIFI and staff were friendly enough. I recommend staying here.

Stayed two weeks in the 8 bed dorm. Would definitely recommend the 8bed if you just need a place to crash after a long day and don't mind people coming/going from the room regularly. Facilities were good. Staff and people staying were awesome and always friendly. One of the workers even gave up some of his own days and took us hiking up Mt Bukhansan, and to the wholesale fish market to eat live octopus which we were extremely grateful for! Itaewon Hostel will make you feel welcome in Seoul!
