Arrived exhausted from a flight from London. Finally made it here only to be told the 3 nights I book weren't put in the system & the hostel was fully book. I ask a few questions and he just kept saying sorry. I booked well in advance & couldn't believe it. They then told me to go to partner hostel few blocks up the hill. Nothing was explained. As for the location if you only have a few days stay somewhere more central near all the palaces. This neighborhood is nice but geared toward foreigners.


Room didn't have a lock and door kept swinging open, even at 3am.


Decent place, some longterm guests. pretty average overall


We enjoyed our time, this hostel has a relaxed atmosphere with cool staff. Would go again!


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.
