can't beat this place for fun stay

Very nice hostel. Cannot be better. In fact the staff are so nice, and the atmosphere is absolutely free, everybody has a place to belong here. Also they are quiet, so if you want to sleep or stay on your own, you absolutely have your room to do so. If you want to hang out with other people, there are also room for that anytime. Recommended to anybody. And honestly I can't think of a nicer hostel in Seoul.

Excellent value for money and close enough to Hongdae area. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and most cheap restaurants are within 15 minutes walk. Free breakfast is okay and cooking within the hostel is also fine. Clean and well maintained. The guys running the place are friendly.

I stayed 4 nights on this hostel and overall it was nice! Just for my 2nd-3rd night when those 4 Malaysian girls stepped into the room at past midnight and they think they own the room! So annoying to talk on LOUD voices at that time when everybody was trying to sleep!

I was worried about getting to the hostel on my own, but it was actually quite easy to find using the directions provided! Staff was friendly, the room was warm even though it was winter, overall the place seemed decent and clean and had all the basic necessities.

the staff is nice but the hostel is bit far away and the map is shown on web is a bit unclear and not updated. the washroom is not really clean but acceptable. Honestly, the price of rental fee is cheap and I recommend this hostel to others.

Eugene and Carter were absolutely lovely to check in with. Location is great - Hongkik Univ. station and the surrounding area is easily accessible on foot. THIS PLACE IS ABSOLUTE VALUE FOR MONEY. However, I booked a twin room and a 6 person dorm - the heating in the twin room was a little weak. On the last day the water heater stopped working and boy was it a chilly shower!

Great staff, they help you a lot. The location is perfect. In a very secure neighborhood next to the best night life in seoul and next to the subway station.
