Even with the YouTube video it's still a little hard to find. It's close to a train station but the hostel itself is quite far from the city center. Though if you like hiking it's located really close to bukhansan national park which is a nice perk. Breakfast is standard: eggs toast and jam. Staff are helpful but most seem to sit in the common room watching tv...

+ comfortable beds; quiet and off the main street; good shower (though small); standard included breakfast (toast, eggs, jam, tea, coffee); very helpful staff; 20-30 min. to Gyeongbokgung Palace; easy access from airport by limo bus; lots of restaurants and shops nearby. - rooms are a bit small, so not much space to put luggage; did not seem to be regular cleaning of the rooms for short-term stay

Perfect value, staff, rooms and facilities. Also speedy Wifi for each floor. Location is 10/10, 2min walk to train to get to many of Seoul's attractions, 2min walk to Bukansan National Park bus and 5min walk to Rodeo st filled with restaurants and bars. A quiet hostel with a great atmosphere in the common room where it is easy to strike up a convo. The people are very welcoming and will treat you as one of their own. Would recommend anyone to stay here. Free eggs + bread too.
