Excellent for the staff.(Simon) I had spent around 10 days here. I do not speak much Korean but Simon and me found many ways to communicate. He also asked me out for lunch and dinner to experience the normal life as a local college student. He and me had breakfast together and I even tried the housemade Kimuchi by his mom. Here is a great place to stay.The staffs were very friendly and thoughtful. Thanks to Simon and the other staffs, I did have a good stay in Seoul. Thank you so much!!!

Okay for a night or two, but atmosphere was poor during my stay. Found a JSA/DMZ tour for much cheaper than the hostel were offering. 6 bed dorm actually has 7 beds, not as described. Long walk up/down the stairs between the rooms on the 5th floor to the common room in the basement. Not necessarily toilets on your floor, depending on your gender.

Very good location close to metro, cheap eateries and nightlife yet quiet. Cool, helpful, English speaking staff. Toilets and the dorms are kept very, very clean - this is not your run-down hostel. The hostel is quite big, but thanks to the cosy common area there's a very good vibe. It's easy to socialize with other travelers - maybe the most important thing in a hostel. Also, it's one of the cheapest places to stay in Seoul - awesome value for money! Would stay here again for sure.

Great atmosphere, full kitchen and food storage, removed enough from the road to be quiet but convenient to a nice neighborhood. Free market on Saturdays in Hongik Park. Would definitely stay here again when I'm back in Seoul. I'm vegetarian with some food allergies and the staff was nice enough to write a note I could show when ordering food; worked like a charm. They also do working accommodations if you're looking to stay for awhile. Thanks again!

Good hostel near the university area with lots to do. Sue and Simon went well out of their way to get through to someone at an airline who could speak English to help me book a last minute flight. The staff here are incredibly helpful and kind. I would definitely go back.

Got myself a single room for 2 nights and it was awesome! The room can be small but I didn't find that a problem as I still have space left even though I had 2 luggage in it. One thing is that there are no heaters in the room and it can be kinda cold for me. Location is not too far from subway station, and about 15 mins walk to the busy streets of Sinchon/Hongdae.

This hostel is too way more than expected. Great super helpful staff. They have really lovely common space in the basement where is well - equipped with PC, kitchen, etc. Just 1 minus only is the location is kinda far from the Seoul city's attractions but you have no worry as the hostel is also accessible to the subway and bus routes.

The place was really nice and clean. Offering adapters at the hostel was a good idea. The directions to the hostel was really easy to understand.
