Just your standard hostel, you get what you pay for. The guy who seemed to be in charge was lovely and made me coffees, and gave me fruit etc. The location I think is fantastic, only a 10 minute walk from Hongik University subway, and is a short walk from the centre of Hongdae. Unfortunately I seemed to stay when there weren't many people in the hostel so there wasn't much of an atmosphere. It's worth the money, and if you're okay with being alone sometimes then this place is definitely worth it

Friendly staff were about the only good thing about this hostel. There were 5 washrooms for the entire hostel, two of which were out of commission most of the time. One of the sinks that did "work" just leaked out into the floor. And the washrooms that were open were not clean Claims to be in Hongdae, but there are much closer, better hostels. And also claims to be a good place for partying, which it was not at all. Would not recommend

Korean staff were amazing, foreigners who worked there for a free place to stay didn't seem to give a damn about the hostel or the guests. A big gentleman from California was very friendly, everyone else never even said hi and not welcoming. Location was amazing for nightlife, hostel itself wasn't too clean and even the staff (foreigners) could be overheard talking very bad about the state of the sheets and mattress. I wouldnt recommend, there must be other places in Seoul for better value.
