JK House is located in the heart of Sinchon, a vibrant area of Seoul, full of students, bars, restaurants, shops. It's impossible to get bored in Sinchon. The staff was super polite, helpful; they truly care for their guest's comfort and prepare breakfast for us every morning. The house is beautifully renovated and the bedroom we got was pretty big compared to most hostel. After a long day outside, you can definitely feel like home at JK House.

Nice Hostel next to the MRT Station Sinchon. Quite central, nice community room, friendly and helpful staff (you can even watch Champions League on Korean TV ;) Sadly the showers are a bit dirty...

We enjoyed our stay here and felt that the hostel staff were really nice and competent. Some downsides were that it was a little hard to find even with the website directions (although not super hard) and the bathrooms were very economy sized even by Korean standards. However, we felt overall that the environment was safe and pleasant and enjoyed the relaxed/chill neighbourhood in which the hostel was located.

This was a great hostel experience. The best aspect of the hostel was the location. Situated right in the Hongdae area, the hostel is within walking distance to tons of restaurants, bars and clubs. The metro is a short walk and most of the major tourist areas are close. Staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. Would definitely recommend this hostel as a good stay.

Great place. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the facilities are quite nice. It can be a bit difficult to find your first time, however, as the directions were not exactly clear and it's not easy to see the place if you're coming from anywhere but the front of the elementary school. It's up half a flight of stairs that are set back into the building. A better map might be nice for first timers. Overall a great place to stay and I would strongly recommend it.

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The location is great. It is a ~3 minute walk to the subway station and is very close to many bars, restaurants, and shops. The hostel itself overlooks a field where soccer is often played, which is fun to watch while lounging in the common area. The staff is absolutely incredible. They are extremely helpful and very nice. I would 100% stay here again.

Staff was very friendly and willing to help you out in whichever way possible. All rooms (living, bed, bath) were all very clean and organized. Conveniently located near a subway station, lots of bars/restaurants, and Hongdae. Would stay here again!

An excellent hostel. Located in the Sinchon area with many restaurants, bars and convienient stores just next door. The interior of the hostel was neat and clean, very modern and stylish. The staff was kind, helpful and welcoming. Internet was superb, as was the air-conditioning, breakfast was great, mainly consisting of breads, eggs, fruits, coffee, juice and all kinds of korean foods, some mornings even kimchi dumplings. Would definitely recomend this hostel to all travellers!
