We stay there on November feels really cold not sure if there's any heater. The staff speaks english fluently and will give you information you need for your tour but there's someone annoying staff who come to our room without permission. they don't give you breakfast but in basement there's a kitchen, and living room you can watch and play there's gathering with people. It's a good place for meeting people but not a great place for rest like a homey place.

I enjoy my stay in Kimchee Sinchon Guesthouse. The Guesthouse is located near the Metro Station and could be easily located. The shower water is hot and the water pressure is high. There is a large area in the basement for cooking, eating and entertainment. I'd like to especially thank Martin and Sumin for their help during my stay in the Guesthouse. If I visit Seoul again,I would choose Kimchee Sinchon Guesthouse.

The hostel is very good, the staff are very kind and friendly especially Shermaine , willing to share the tips and nice location. I meet many awesome friends from different country at there also, it was a nice hostel and the price is also reasonable. The location also nice for shopping and nightlife activities as the location very happening.

Very nice hostel! The staff is very friendly, especially Sumin. There's a basement where everybody hangsout. Very social place. Good to go when your travelling alone cause you'll defenitely make some new friends :). The rooms are good and clean. The location is also good cause it's close to the subway and close to all the shops in Hongdae. I'd defenitely recommend this hostel any time!

The neighborhood and area is good, easy subway access. However, the reception desk is always empty, and there is no such thing as locks here. Building is open, my room was left unlock. Key deposit was pointless cause everything was always unlocked. Normal average hostel-- those metal bunkbeds and common bathrooms. Those guests that never leave the common area - those are the staff. Price was good though, and was easy to get around Seoul with the subway station being so close.

The cheapest hostel in the area, but prepare for mosquitos! And the staff isn't too welcoming.

There are not enough showers compared to the number of people staying at the hostel. Also the men and women toilets are split on alternating floors, so you could stay in a room and the restroom will be on another floor. This is quite annoying. Besides that the hostel is good and the common room is very nice.

the location is really good. near the bus stop and subway station. but i have no idea why so many mosquitos in rooms. i even couldnt fall asleep. for security,they dont lock the front door. so everybody can enter the guest house. even the one who doesnt stay in the guesthouse.

This hostel had nice beds (even the top ones). Finding it was quite hard even after being dropped off in a taxi as there is no sighn on the main road. It's a nice place to start travels in Korea though. There are lots of tours you can do.

The atmosphere and the people I met were amazing. Although I did not have much chance to talk much to the owner but they were truly friendly and helpful, making me feel very welcome there. Plus the location is in Hongik University therefore very convenient and is one hostel that I find have drying machine :)

I had a single room there for more than a week. It was a bare minimum, but it was clean and ordered, and the staff was helpful (thanks for the help, Martin!). It is definitely good value for money, and a very good location, as it is on subway line 2 and also on the airport line.
