Unlimited supply of instant noodles/ramen at the breakfast area! Free hanbok experience and photoshoot was a nice touch. Will come again or recommend to others

I always stayed at hongdae, but stayed at the Namsan guest house for the first time. I stayed at many guest houses in Korea which went many times, but was good here so as, above all, to want to stay again. Because I go to Korea frequently, I use it again(*´∀`)

I thought the guesthouse had everything we needed! I, Connie, stayed here with my husband and we loved the location. Close the subway station and right by Myongdong shopping and nightlife. The staff was well informed and very kind.

Really appreciated the privacy within the all female dorm. The private bunk bed with curtain and own personal tv was pretty awesome. Very friendly and helpful staff - I had some trouble finding my specific guesthouse and bumped into a staff member at another location, he personally escorted me to my location and assisted with my luggage! Great location, very central and close to a lot of major sights in Seoul. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was full of Mosquitos. They have 5 buildings, the one we stayed was run down. There was no one around to keep the drank guest on line. The room was very dirty

Except for the mistake of the staff telling me that I was upgraded and had to drag my heavy luggage uphill to another branch, my overall stay at Namsan Guesthouse 4 was very pleasant. I stayed in the male dormitory and I like how it is designed: with power plugs, LCD TV, comforter and curtain for privacy. There's free breakfast but it is the same everyday. They can probably impove on that. Bath gel and shampoo is complimentary. One of the best dormitory accomodations that I've stayed at.

The location is excellent,just the opposite of the famous Myeongdong shopping area,the staff is nice. Rooms are small,but its value for money.Got free cup noodles and bread for u in the common area. **dont go to the food stall outside the hostel(just next to the road) at night,food r really really expensive n small portion,even more expensive than local restaurant**

Excellent Hostel, I've stayed her twice and always get a great nights sleep. For the same price you pay for a dorm bunk you get the feeling of having your own private space.

This was a fantastic place to stay for our time in Seoul. The staff are absolutely amazing, so helpful and hospitable. Rooms are clean and great value for money. Namsan is well located in the busy hub of Myeongdong but also just moments away from the scenic Namsan Park. We will definitely be staying here again. Gamsa Haneeda Dongil and his team!

Great location and very friendly staff! We were originally placed in Namsan nr. 1 but due to the length of my boyfriend we were re-located to nr.5 with bigger beds. Very helpful! Rooms were clean, breakfast free but simple (cnoodles or toast with peanut butter and coffee), and the location perfect. We would really recommend this place as price is very reasonable!

I was happy that I made a good choice in booking this hostel. I did not expect that they have new and modern facilities in each room. The receptionists were all very helpful to their guests and they could speak good English. The room that I had there was such a perfect place for me to rest and relax. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

My friend and i stayed in Namsan Guest house 4 , private twin bedded room for 3 nights. The actual room looks very different from the picture shown. There wasnt enough space to have a walkway between 2 single bed much less having space for us to open or put our luggage. he toilet was pathetic small and the room doesnt have a window. It was thankful that we did not chose to stay in the same guesthouse when we came back to Seoul from Jeju. The only plus point is its location.T

I really liked staying at this hostel with my boyfriend. We had a nice private ensuite room. Unfortunately there was construction going on and we woke up early in the morning. But that was not too much of a problem because we left for sightseeing anyway. We spent 3 nights but the room was not cleaned once. Still i recommend this hostel due to the nice location, friendly staff and nice rooms.

This initially looked like a good place to spend the night around Myeongdong. There are many different buildings under this hostel's name and some of them are not labeled with a sign. So you might end up like us, walking up and down the base of Namsan, trying to figure out just where to go and who to give your money to. They also tried to overcharge me. I showed them the hostelworld email which showed the amound owed and they made some excuse and still charged me more for a different room.
