The location is awesome- very close to a subway stop with tons of food and shops in the area. The staff are also friendly and helpful when you could find them. The bathrooms are small, but clean, for a small fee you can use the washing machine and dryer, towels are provided, and the wifi is ok. Lots of travel books and brochures are available in the common room. However, it is a little difficult to find, so print out a map before you get there (the directions provided are not very clear).

Lacking some public facilities like a phone and the computer was actually pretty dirty. Some spring cleaning would help the place a long way. Area is fantastic for its charm and just off the bustle. Very accessible to a lot of other places.


Excellent place to stay and helpful staff.


We love stay at Korea Central Backpackers because the guest house is very the korean. All facilities is provided and the owner and their staff also helpful to guided us as long as we stayed there. The guest house is very clean and well properly. We enjoyed staying there so much. Hope will come again there.

Good value for money. Do not expect too much for such price. Rooms however could be cleaner.
