Andrew and staff are nice and friendly. The location is perfect. Easy to go to historic attraction as well as shopping centres. Don't forget to have the grilled fish at the restaurant just in front of the hostel. If I go to Seoul again, I will definitely stay there.

This place was a great little hole in the wall! The free cereal/eggs/bread/coffee/juice for breakfast was great, and it was very easily found. Free cable TV and a computer in my private room were welcome surprises! My only real complaints was that there was not much water pressure at all in the shower, and that since it is close to a restaurant, the smell of grilled fish is sort of ever-present if the window is open.
