Returned here for our last night in South Korea. Small room, but very cheap and has plenty of facilities. Do your washing early, as the washing machine is often in use just before the hours of operation ends. The WiFi strength depends on which room you stay in, but you can always use the common areas. There is a 10,000 W deposit for the key.
Exceed my expectation..really near to train and bus station..just 5 minutes walk from Gwanghwamun Gate/Gyeongbokgung Palace (one of the most famous tourist attraction in Seoul)..so many landmark as a reminder of your hostel..24 hours convenient stores are just 50meters away from entrance..free wifi is accessible with good connection..laundry facility..clean toilet..just nice!

They only have a small kitchen as common room, and also the rooms are quite small, however, the location was good.
This hostel is very big, I think they have over 50 rooms in there. Rooms are REALLY small, only a bed and a little bit of floor space. Nowhere to put your clothes. Bed's mattress was really hard, walls were really thin, we could hear everything from corridor and even from other rooms. Shared bathrooms were sometimes really dirty. Staff didn't spoke to us after they got our money. Location was excellent, in the middle of Seoul! If you want to meet other people, this is not the place to go.
All is well in this hostel, except for the weird bathrooms, which are somewhat symptomatic for Korea in general. The rooms are on the small side but do their job well, and the price is simply unbeatable considering the location of the hostel, which is right in the center of Seoul. The staff was very helpful and pointed out loads of stuff we could do!
Great location, staff helpful and friendly. enjoyed the roof terrace.

This was the most disappointing hostel. The bathroom was absolutely revolting! Dirty, smelly and unhygienic. The room was boiling hot, with no air con and no curtains, and as it is in the city centre it's bright all night!! The beds were rock hard and incredibly SHORT (and I'm not a tall person!) and narrow. The lady at reception spoke no English so wasn't able to help us with flights causing issues with checkout. Only one set of girls toilets, for 3 levels of rooms. Will never stay again.
