Really lovely place to stay in Seoul with awesome touches like free breakfast waffles made for you. The staff were so friendly and attentive.
Min and Jake are extremely friendly! good location, right next to the vivid and trendy area of Hapjeong. Nice rooftop and common area. Definetely recommend this hostel ;)
Great hostel! The staff are the best you could ever hope for and are making every effort to improve the place on what it already is.
Jake, Min, thanks for the awesome stay and I'm sure I'll see you again in the future when I return to Seoul!

A really cool and cosy place with great homely atmosphere. It's a few steps from the tube, and in a great part of Seoul. The people there are really nice.

Amazing. The free waffles and toast, although it sounds cheesy, is the perfect addition to this hostel. This feels very much like a dorm room, or my buddy's apartment, and that it a good thing, as it makes me feel right at home. Only one suggestion, and that would be to add some sort of hook by the beds! It kind sucks to just drape your towel on your bed to dry out. That little addition would give this place the perfect score. I will definitely be coming back if and when I'm back in Seoul. THX!
Not crazy about the "capsule" beds but the location is great, just steps from the subway. Friendly staff & good wifi
Best. Hostel. Ever. Returning customers should get first pick on bottom bunks though...I'll be expecting that next time I visit. ;)
Staff was so friendly and helpful! Will definitely recommend the hostel to others.
The location of this hostel is wonderful, not even a 5 minute walk from the subway. The place felt very relaxed and laid back. We were given free waffles in the morning for breakfast and the staff helped us decide what we should do for the day. Although our room was a little cramped it was perfect for sleeping and I would definitely go back again. They also had a nice large common area for meeting people. Only problem was there were no keys or security (although they did provide lockers).
Seoul Base Camp is an excellent place to stay when you're in Seoul. Although the place has a DIY feel to it you got everything you need. The location right in Hongdea is awesome for partying and access to plublic transportation is great so you reach all the sights easily. The best thing though is the atmopshere greated by the owners and stuff. Those guys/girls rock.
