Super friendly staff and was very easy to find!


We stayed 3 nights at JK House in a private double room. The room was extremely dirty. It seemed as though it hadn't been dusted/cleaned since it was built - the window sills were black. We got them to do some basic cleaning, but it honestly was not enough. The location was excellent, lots to do around and good food/drinks with very easy access to the subway. Staff was very nice and friendly though surprisingly limited in their English. I will not stay there again.


The staff was really nice, too bad the facilities didn't look so clean (especially the kitchen and the showers ...)

I would choose JK House if I visited Seoul again. Staff was really helpful and nice and managed a visit to the DMZ for me.


Great location, friendly and well informed staff, surprisingly good breakfast, nice beautiful room (twin ensuite), good place to meet fellow travellers. Would definately stay here again.


Very good location and very friendly staff. The only thing I can complain about is that the restrooms/showers could have been cleaner


Everything was great, stay, security, staff, location. But it could be cleaner. The showers were a bit dirty. And lacked toilet paper sometimes.


Awesome staff. Extremely helpful.

Good location. Staff are nice and helpful. Very decent breakfast provided. Cool basement with 3 dorms and 3 washrooms. Very satisfied


Stayed at JK House for three nights with a friend and had a great time. It's in a really fun, college-y neighborhood with tons of restaurants and bars. We had fun just walking around. Excellent shopping is a short walk in one direction near Ehwa and all-night clubbing is a 15 minute walk in the other direction in Hongdae. The hostel was clean and comfy. Try to meet the staff and hang out upstairs! They're really fun. :)
