Overall everything was fine here. The one issue I had was that the room was really small. It was basically an oversized closet. The bed pratically took up the entire room. Having said that everything was clean and in relative working order. I had an issue with the T.V. but the guy from downstairs came up and fixed it immeaditly. The staff in general here was extremely friendly. I would recommend this place to others that are looking for a place to stay in Seoul that is near a subway.

Had a great stay over at this hostel! Awesome location, it's really just a stone throw away from exit #15 of the subway station. Mr Giant, owner of the hostel is super friendly and even organised a BBQ party for all guests. Plus he is able to converse in Mandarin and English as well. What's more, Lotteria, Paris Baguette, Holly's Coffee, Macdonalds and many more shops are just steps away.
